A Maritimes adventure from the Atlantic seaside to the Cape Breton highlands
Colourful fishing villages, seaside hiking trails, a very famous lighthouse, and a Prohibition-era rum-running town all await on this 6-day tour that shows off Nova Scotia’s most iconic highlights.

Explore the UNESCO World Heritage site of Lunenburg, tour the historic town of Baddeck, drive the spectacular Cabot Trail, and shop for locally made Mi’kmaq arts and crafts, all before finishing up on Prince Edward Island.
See for yourself why the charming fishing town of Peggy’s Cove is one of the most photographed places in Canada.

Take a tour of the historic town of Baddeck, which marks the start (and end) of the famous Cabot Trail and where Alexander Graham Bell had a summer home.

This trip is new to our range this year. And while we have thoroughly researched every detail of the logistics, new destinations and working with new partners can sometimes throw us some unexpected surprises. More often than not, it’ll be a great surprise. But every now and again there might be a hiccup. We like to think that’s what puts the ‘adventure’ in ‘adventure travel’.
