Detailed itinerary

DAY 1 - Halifax

Welcome to Nova Scotia and one of the largest natural harbours in the world: Halifax

Halifax is easy to explore on foot. Considered to be the capital of Atlantic Canada, it has all the charms of an historic city with its tree-lined avenues and elegant 18th- and 19th-century buildings.

Soak up the sea air with a walk along the harbourfront, with its boardwalks bustling with activity.

Activities

DAY 2 - Excursion to Peggy's Cove

Nova Scotia has more lighthouses than any other province in Canada.

So it is only natural that your first destination is Peggy's Cove lighthouse. This iconic structure, rising from a rugged granite outcropping and often shrouded in fog, is one of the best-known lighthouses in the world.

Your route continues to the charming British colonial town of Lunenburg

In addition to being the home port of the legendary Bluenose II, Lunenburg is one of only 2 towns in North America that have been designated as UNESCO World Heritage Sites, the other being Quebec City.

Return to Halifax at the end of the day.

Activities

DAY 3 - Halifax Prince Edward Island ( 331 km / 03h34 )

Today the adventure leads to Charlottetown, the capital of Prince Edward Island and the "cradle of Canada". To reach the island you will take the 12.9 km-long Confederation Bridge, linking PEI to the continent since 1997.

What about starting your visit with a walk along the harbourfront?

Have a drink or a bite to eat with live jazz music on the charming pedestrian street of Victoria Row. In the evening, its ambiance is magical and a seafood meal, served by candlelight under large umbrellas, is highly recommended!

After dark, you will have the chance to take in Charlottetown's vibrant arts scene. A number of pubs offer a lively maritime atmosphere, complete with traditional Celtic music acts.

Accommodation

Optional visit

DAY 4 - Excursion to Cavendish (1:15 round trip)

Treat yourselves to a relaxing day in the Cavendish sector of Prince Edward Island National Park. You can relax on one of the beautiful beaches or admire the panoramic coastal views as you stroll along the Homestead Trail.

Be sure to take the Gulf Shore Parkway along the Gulf of St. Lawrence and the edge of the national park: with its red sandstone cliffs, white sandy beaches, dunescapes and farmland vistas, the landscapes are simply stunning.

Return to Charlottetown at the end of the day.

Optional visit

DAY 5 - Prince Edward Island Moncton ( 164 km / 02h00 )

You will definitely want to try the lobster at one of the town's famous seafood restaurants. After all, in addition to its many boutiques and art galleries, Shediac is known as the lobster capital of the world.

And who could resist the temptation to be photographed with the largest lobster in the world, yet another world-famous attraction!

You spent the night in Moncton.

This morning's destination is the Bay of Fundy: get ready for one of the natural wonders of the world! The spectacular tides and unique coastal landscape will certainly be one of the highlights of your trip.

To truly appreciate the magnitude of the tides, pay a visit to Hopewell Rocks. Once there, imagine yourself at low tide, walking around the base of these gigantic rock formations sculpted by tidal erosion into the shape of flowerpots... and, 6 hours later,  paddling a kayak in the same location. Will you give it a try?

You return to Moncton for the night.

The spirit of Acadian celebration is ever present: don't hesitate if you have the chance to attend any Acadian gatherings or festivals!

You spend the night in the resolutely Acadian town of Caraquet. This small coastal town lies on the shore of Baie des Chaleurs, one of the most beautiful bays in the world.

Accommodation

DAY 9 - Acadie Baie des Chaleurs ( 211 km / 02h24 )

Before leaving New Brunswick, plan to stop at Village Historique Acadien, an historical reconstruction that portrays the way of life of Acadians between 1770 and 1939.

Interpreters in period costumes provide a warm welcome, bringing traditional crafts and customs to life in authentic historical buildings. Each of the inhabitants has a story to tell!

Then you set course for Quebec and southern Gaspesie. While you are in the area, take the opportunity to climb Mount St-Joseph, silent witness to the history of the earth and the human race.
