Itinerary

canada-road-trip-canada-map-east-cover

Halifax, Nova Scotia

Arrive in the capital of Halifax and prepare for your road adventure. Pick up your rental car in the airport and enjoy a few days in and around Halifax. The Maritime Museum can be recommended. Halifax offers great night life and this only minutes away from some of the best hiking and sea-kayaking trails around. Learn more

Peggy's Cove, Nova Scotia

Make your way down the coast to the fishing village of Peggy's Cove, well known for its iconic light house overlooking the rocks and the surging Atlantic Ocean. Learn more

Lunenburg, Nova Scotia

Known for shipbulding and the famous Canadian racing ship "Bluenose", the town of Lunenburg has a long, proud seafaring history. Lunenburg is indeed a walking town. Enjoy small shops, artist galleries and restaurants. The Waterfront and the Bluenose museum sailing ship should not be missed - you simply can't. Learn more

Kejimkujik National Park, Nova Scotia

Explore Kejimkujik and its waterways by canoe, following the same routes that were once taken by Mi'kmaq Indians. Hiking trails at this national park are popular and open all year round. Rent a cabin by one of the lakes or set up camp at one of the many campsites throughout the park. Learn more

Annapolis Royal, Nova Scotia

The seaside town of Annapolis Royal is idyllically situated between mountain and sea, offering a beautiful waterfront with small town stores. Annapolis Royal holds a unique spot in Nova Scotian history. Long before the arrival of Europeans, this area held special meaning for the Mi’kmaq Indians who were the sole occupants of Canada’s Maritime Provinces for thousands of years. Learn more

Saint John, New Brunswick

After a ferry trip across The Bay of Fundy, you arrive in Saint John, capital in the province of New Brunswick. Walk through charming streets and step into a vibrant past with an intriguing modern edge. Before heading north, treat yourself with a whale watching tour from Grand Manan Island. Best time is August. Learn more

Hopewell Cape, New Brunswick

One of the most impressive phenomenons in Canada is the amazing and world famouos tide that takes place twice a day in the Bay of Fundy and particularly at Hopewell Rocks Tidal Exploration Site - a fantastic place to experience high and low tides. During high tides of the new moon, tides can reach 14 metres! Not to be missed. Learn more

Charlottetown & Prince Edward Island

Next stop is the smallest province of Canada, Prince Edward Island. You can spend days here to explore Charlottetown and the authentic Island atmosphere, rolling green hills, idyllic towns and sights before making your way back to mainland Nova Scotia with the Caribou Ferry. Learn more

Cape Breton Highlands National Park, Nova Scotia

The North Coast of Nova Scotia is an impressive area with a picture-perfect scenic drive at the very top of the Island. It's a busy but not crowded place in summer. Sydney is the largest town on the island and the nearby airport has often seen confused travellers end up at "Sydney Airport, Nova Scotia" instead of "Sydney Airport, Australia". Learn more

Baddeck, Nova Scotia

The small town of Baddeck marks the beginning and end of the scenic Cabot Trail. It's a favorite stop for drivers and sailors alike - perfect for those looking for a place to rest and admire the surrounding hills and water. Learn more

Louisbourg, Nova Scotia

Halifax, Nova Scotia

Back where it all started! It's time to return the rental car, maybe spend a few extra days in Halifax absorbing your maritime road trip before going home or moving on to your next destination. Learn more
