Canada's Maritime Provinces are the perfect multi centre holiday. With rugged coastlines and spectacular coastal drives, this wild part of Canada is best explored on a self drive adventure. Load up your car and cruise between picturesque towns and sublime views, stopping now and then to breathe in the ocean air. Each evening, having dined on seafood caught fresh that morning, let the tension melt away as you fall asleep to the soothing sounds of the sea.
- Discover Canada's Maritime history and way of life
- Breathe in the ocean air while enjoying spectacular coastal scenery
- Dine on freshly caught seafood while gazing out to sea
- Experience Acadian culture in Moncton
Start your Journey
Destination 1: New Brunswick
In Atlantic Canada the journey is the destination. As you drive out from the provincial capital of Fredericton, you'll be greeted by rolling hills, untouched beaches and sparkling lakes. In Saint John, indulge in some freshly caught lobster, discover Acadian culture in Moncton and see the incredible Hopewell Rocks on the shores of the Bay of Fundy.
Destination 2: Nova Scotia
Almost entirely surrounded by ocean, Nova Scotia offers some of Canada's best coastal drives. Embrace the spirit of spontaneity as you switch off the GPS and go where the moment takes you. Enjoy a hike with dramatic coastal views on Cape Breton Island, learn about the province's Maritime history at the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic and savour a great ale at the Alexander Keith Brewery.
