Atlantic Canada holidays

Atlantic Canada encompasses the provinces of New Brunswick, Newfoundland and Labrador, Nova Scotia, and Prince Edward Island. Each province offers its own individual charm, and with scenic national parks, 43,000km of coastline, interesting small towns and wide open roads, it makes for a great self-drive destination. The cuisine here is a delight, with fresh seafood served up everywhere, from fine dining restaurants to street stalls. What’s more, the region is the closest part of North America to Europe, with direct flights from the UK taking under 6 hours.

Nova Scotia and New Brunswick provide excellent whale watching opportunities, with over 12 species recorded in the Bay of Fundy, home to the world’s highest tides. An abundance of seabirds and other wildlife can also be spotted along the coastline and offshore. Prince Edward Island is the smallest and greenest of the provinces, with picturesque red sandstone cliffs and plenty of beaches to explore. In Newfoundland and Labrador, look out for humpback whales, millions of seabirds and glistening icebergs floating along the rugged coastline in the summer months.
