Day 1: Monday: Halifax to Moncton

Meet your fellow traveling companions and travel past the communities of Truro and Amherst as you cross into New Brunswick, spending the night in the bilingual city of Moncton.

Day 2: Tuesday: Moncton to Charlottetown

Your guided tour continues to Hopewell Rocks where you may walk on the ocean floor at low tide. After lunch, cross to Prince Edward Island on Confederation Bridge, the world's longest continuous multi-span bridge, and enjoy a delicious lobster supper (meat alternative available) before checking in to Charlottetown accommodations for the next two nights. (Breakfast, Dinner)

Day 3: Wednesday: Prince Edward Island Touring

Enjoy a free morning in Charlottetown. Your included afternoon tour begins with a tour of Charlottetown, Canada's Birthplace, then visiting the red sandstone cliffs, white beaches, gently sloping sand dunes and green fields of Prince Edward Island National Park. Lucy Maud Montgomery describes the scenery in her "Anne of Green Gables" books. Visit the home of "Green Gables", a Mecca for people from around the globe. (Breakfast, Lunch)

Day 4: Thursday: Charlottetown - Baddeck

Take the ferry to Nova Scotia, and then proceed to Cape Breton Island - "the Scotland of North America." Visit the Alexander Graham Bell National Historic Site in Baddeck to marvel at the many accomplishments of this genius. Spend two nights at a charming lakeside resort in the heart of Baddeck. (Breakfast, Dinner)

Day 5: Friday: Cabot Trail touring

You're off to experience one of the prettiest drives in North America, the Cabot Trail. Cape Breton Highlands National Park is next, as you wind along this ribbon of highway, where the mountains meet the sea. The vistas abound as you travel over the flat-topped mountains. Also enjoy a whale watching boat tour (weather permitting). Tonight there is a "Farewell" dinner. (Breakfast, Picnic Lunch, Dinner)

Arrivals in July, August and September enjoy a bonus while on the Cabot Trail: a whale watching boat tour (weather permitting) (Included).

Day 6: Saturday: Baddeck to Halifax

The Fortress of Louisbourg National Historic Site awaits you. This reconstruction recreates one-fifth of the town of 1744 - words will not do justice to the scope of this tribute to New France. Roam the streets talking with some of the costumed guides who remain in character, or sample the sustenance of the era. Your tour continues along the shores of Bras d'Or to the mainland. The tour ends upon arrival at a downtown Halifax hotel. (Breakfast)
