Your tour begins in French-speaking Quebec City, where the
European influence of this historic city full of cobblestone
streets awaits. You'll receive a guided tour to visit the city's
most famous sights, then a free afternoon to explore the
cosmopolitan city on your own.
Next, travel through New Brunswick and into Nova Scotia with
first-class accommodations onboard VIA Rail's Ocean. When you
arrive in Halifax, you have time to explore the area's museums,
galleries, and restaurants. The next day takes you to the maritime
areas of Nova Scotia including time to explore the charm of these
seaside towns on your own.
Next, it's time for a road trip to Cape Breton, where you can
visit Alexander Graham Park and might even spot a bald eagle!
You'll have an entire day free to explore this island. Spend your
time driving scenic routes and visiting historic sites and museums
at your leisure.
Then make the lovely drive to the uniquely beautiful Prince
Edward Island, the smallest of Canada's provinces. This land has
miles of sandy beaches, stunning cliffs, a welcoming community, and
some of the best seafood around. After your two-night stay in
Prince Edward Island, you'll take a scenic ferryboat ride back to
Halifax, where you'll have the remainder of the day to explore more
of the area.
