Day One

We spend our first night together in the cosmopolitan city of Montréal in our convenient, downtown hotel.

Day Two

We continue eastward, with a mid-day visit to historic Québec City. Then, we take the scenic north shore, enjoying the spectacular scenery as we travel to St. Simeon, where we take a ferry across the St. Lawrence and spend the night in Rivière-du-Loup.

Day Three

Today we travel into the heart of New Brunswick and arrive late afternoon in Miramichi, where we are welcomed after dinner with a down-home kitchen party. You’ll love the warm hospitality of Connie and Paul with the sounds of fiddles, guitars and mandolins. Sing along, and learn to play the spoons!

Day Four

We visit Olivier Soaperie, an exceptional facility making homeopathic formulas. Then it’s the ultimate lobster-lover’s experience as we head out in the bay for a cruise with lobster fishers. Haul traps, learn proper cooking methods and shelling techniques. Then sit back and enjoy the delicious mouth-watering lobster feast. We cross the Confederation Bridge to Prince Edward Island, where we spend the next two nights in beautiful Charlottetown.

Day Five

A local guide joins us for a full day tour of Prince Edward Island. We’ll visit Lucy Maud Montgomery’s home, and enjoy a luncheon reminiscent of the era of Anne of Green Gables. After seeing this delightful island, full of shades of green crops, red soil, and sparkling blue water, we’ll understand why the locals refer to P.E.I. as "precious every inch".

Day Six

We return across the Confederation Bridge to New Brunswick, and travel south toward Nova Scotia. Stopping for a "Fabric of Canada" luncheon, we arrive later this afternoon in Baddeck, where we spend the next two nights.

Day Seven

The spectacular Cabot Trail will take your breath away! We’ll make many picture stops and enjoy a "Fabric of Canada" lunch with some of the locals. This is one of the most beautiful drives in North America.

Day Eight

Today we enjoy the scenery along the south shore of Minas Basin, an inlet of the Bay of Fundy, stopping at Burntcoat Head, the site of the largest tidal range ever recorded. We then unpack for three nights in the vibrant city of Halifax. Take in the sights and sounds of this historically rich seaside city, home of one of the world’s longest downtown boardwalks.

Day Nine

We begin with a visit the most photographed place in North America, Peggy’s Cove. This afternoon, a local guide will join us for a tour of Halifax, as we learn more about the famed Halifax Explosion, the connection to the Titanic, the cultural impact of Pier 22 and much more. This afternoon, it’s the thrill of the Nova Scotia International Tattoo, featuring bands and entertainers from all over the world (June departure only). For other departures, we take an evening harbour cruise.

Day Ten

This morning, a short and scenic drive will take us through picturesque Mahone Bay as we head to Lunenburg. This beautiful town, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is full of charm, character and history. We visit the interesting Fisheries Museum of the Atlantic, and explore the downtown waterfront area. The August departure will coincide with the Lunenburg Folk Harbour Festival in the downtown area.

Day Eleven

We travel inland today and through the beautiful Annapolis Valley, with dykelands, orchards, charming Victorian towns and vineyards rolling across acre after picture-perfect acre to the shores of the Bay of Fundy. We return to New Brunswick on a ferry cruise and spend the night in St. John. On our way to the hotel we will stop to see the incredible Reversing Falls.

Day Twelve

The rugged coastline of New Brunswick takes us into the heart of Maine and the White Mountains of New Hampshire, spending the night in the town of Gorham.

Day Thirteen

Franconia Notch is a picturesque gorge between towering mountains and we take an incredible trip up Cannon Mountain on an aerial tramway to an observation platform for an indescribable view. Continuing on through Vermont, we spend the night in Plattsburgh, NY.

Day Fourteen

The final leg of this spectacular vacation takes us through the mountains of upstate New York then across the border to home. We arrive early evening, with a lifetime of memories!
