7 day tour of Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and P.E.I.
Written By MooseTravel
Breathe in the fresh Atlantic air, listen to the waves crash on the rugged coastline and feel the sand between your toes – you must be in the Maritimes!
Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and the smallest province of all, Prince Edward Island! You’ll be sure to see plenty of seabirds such as herons, gannets and kingfishers and the (less adorable but very majestic) bald eagle. If that isn’t enough seabirds/life for you then take a whale watching cruise to see humpbacks, minke and more, plus adorable seals!
New Brunswick is famous for their lobster, so of course we’ll be boarding a lobster boat to enjoy the freshest lobster lunch available. We’ll hike trails on Cape Breton Island, check out the incredible tidal changes and rock formations at the Bay of Fundy, keep our eyes peeled for moose and other wildlife, relax on sandy beaches, and even visit the Anne of Green Gables homestead!

Today we will visit Louisbourg and you can choose to take a tour of the National Historic Site of Fortress of Louisbourg. This fort was founded in 1713 by the French and developed over several decades into a thriving centre for fishing and trade. Its two sieges, especially that of 1758, were turning points in the Anglo-French struggle for what Canada is today. Tonight we stay again at the wonderful Bear on the Lake hostel.
