Itinerary

Tour Itinerary

Discover the heart of Canada’s Atlantic seacoast on this wonderful vacation. This tour begins and ends in Halifax with overnights also in Moncton, Charlottetown, and Baddeck. Along the way, you’ll experience scenic drives, visit beautiful national parks and quaint fishing villages, and enjoy special adventures arranged by Globus. Tour highlights include a visit to Peggy’s Cove, a charming fishing village with the picturesque lighthouse (one of the world’s most photographed places), and Lunenburg, a small port town and UNESCO World Heritage Site. Learn about the highest and wildest tides at Hopewell Rocks, where time and tides (up to 50 feet) have created distinctive sandstone formations topped with trees. On Cape Breton Island, keep your camera ready as you embark on the Cabot Trail, one of the most scenic drives in the world, and visit Cape Breton Highlands National Park, resembling the Scottish coastal regions. More scenic beauty awaits you in Prince Edward Island National Park, famous for its wind-sculpted dunes and sandy beaches. Also enjoy a ferry ride across the Northumberland Strait. Globus has arranged many out-of-the-ordinary experiences throughout this Eastern Canada tour. For example, visit Sugar Moon Farm for a lunch, tour and tasting of a traditional sugar camp treat. You’ll be treated to a traditional Ceilidh—a folk music party—on Prince Edward Island and a traditional Nova Scotia breakfast at Peggy’s Cove. From the gorgeous scenery and quaint fishing villages to the fun experiences, this tour through Eastern Canada is sure to delight all of your senses!

This was an excellent trip full of history and beauty. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and helpful. I always feel taken care of when I travel with Globus.

Saw beautiful scenery, were some what hampered by hurricane. Not a lot of leg room on the coach was not pleased about one hotel I think they could have done better. Tour director was good and extreemly knowledgable

Wonderful trip through Nova Scotia. Beautiful Shoreline and historical features. Guide and driver were very accommodating.

The bus was different and not the normal Globus bus. Only one door to exit and less places to store stuff. The trip had a lot of bus time. Therefore it was a disappointment.

Apart from the need on a couple of days for at least one extra stop/break, the day-by-day experience was wonderful. I would even welcome an extra day and it's added cost as a means of a bit more free time or rest along the way. I sensed others in the group would agree in that some chose to stay at the hotel on one of the final days. The bus was really comfortable and allowed for clear views along the way. The hotels were well chosen-- locations, service, and comfort. This is a tour for those who love natural beauty and especially the "52 shades of green" on Prince Edward Island".

Well-rounded trip with hotels in excellent locations and just enough free time to explore on your own.

The trip was well-paced, informative, and accommodations, staff, and food were excellent.

This was my first Globus trip and it was great! Hotels were excellent and well placed, provided meals were very good and our Tour Director was outstanding. He was exceptionally knowledgabel and organized. The itinerary was wonderful and the fact that the weather cooperated with our activities certainly helped make this an exceptional trip!

Great trip, only issue was one of the hotels was in need of some upgrading (poor air conditioning, slow elevators, rude banquet staff). Overall, it was a great experience, very knowledgeable guide and great driver. Seemed a little rushed a few times, just wish that time would have been allotted for Religious Observances.

I thoroughly enjoyed my trip....thought it was a wonderful way to see this beautiful scenic part of Canada! The tour guide and bus driver as well as fellow passengers made the tour one that I will always remember.
