Atlantic Canada is a region of Canada comprised of four provinces that’s world-famous for the Bay of Fundy and the Cape Breton Cabot Trail. You’ll find memorable experiences in nature, food, history and culture throughout this entire region. In this video, we feature two of the region’s beautiful provinces. New Brunswick and Nova Scotia are two out of three Maritime provinces located in Atlantic Canada. Both of these provinces have their distinct qualities, but one of the best things they share is the Bay of Fundy – a place where the tide rises to 48 feet and a colossal 160 billion tons of seawater crash in and out of the bay every day. Thanks to this, the vibrant cities, charming towns and great outdoors – magic moments come easy to Atlantic Canada. In this video, you can discover a few of them.
13 DAY TOUR FROM BOSTON TO BOSTON
She sells seashells by the seashore – and fresh lobster, steamed mussels, and seared scallops, too. Lemon and drawn butter will become your new best friends on this coastal tour of Maine and all three of Canada’s Maritime provinces. As you make your way from rocky beaches to charming fishing villages, you’ll savor the catches of the day – and the views of a lifetime.

See the famous lighthouse at Peggy’s Cove, the Anne of Green Gables farmhouse, and the quaint settlement of St. Andrews By-the-Sea. While the local fisherman of New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, and Prince Edward Island will happily demonstrate their rugged lifestyles, you’ll sink into the luxuries of two pampering resorts – the Digby Pines and the historic Algonquin.
