Overview

Highlights

Short Description

Discover the heart of Canada’s Atlantic seacoast on this wonderful vacation. This tour begins in Halifax, ends in Montreal, overnights also in Charlottetown and Baddeck, and includes scenic drives, beautiful national parks, and quaint fishing villages.

Highlights of this Atlantic Canada tour include a visit to Peggy’s Cove, a charming fishing village with a picturesque lighthouse (one of the world’s most photographed places), and Lunenburg, a small port town where you’ll visit the Fisheries Museum of the Atlantic, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Learn about the world’s highest and wildest tides at Hopewell Rocks, where time and tides up to 52 feet have created distinctive sandstone formations topped with trees. More scenic beauty awaits you in Prince Edward Island National Park, famous for its wind-sculpted dunes and sandy, picturesque beaches.

On Cape Breton Island, have your camera ready as you embark on the Cabot Trail, one of the world’s most scenic drives, and visit Cape Breton Highlands National Park, resembling the Scottish coastal regions. Enjoy panoramic views of rugged cliffs, deep valleys, forested slopes, the Atlantic Ocean, and the Gulf of St. Lawrence.

In addition to stunning scenery, this Atlantic Canada tour also includes visits to an Acadian maple shop, the Anne of Green Gables Farmhouse, and the Alexander Graham Bell Museum. Plus, you’ll travel overnight from Halifax to Montreal on VIA Rail’s Ocean train and spend two nights in Montreal.

From the gorgeous scenery and picturesque villages to the fun experiences, this value-minded tour through Atlantic Canada will delight all of your senses!

Groups are between 25-60 people, typically ~30-40. Usually there will be many opportunities to split off and enjoy meals and excursions in smaller groups. This is the most economical way to travel, saving up to 40% versus booking the same itinerary yourself.

I am a budget solo female traveler. I have traveled with COSMOS for about 20 years in the past, all over Europe, Switzerland, Turkey, etc. The best thing is that I never have to pay extra for single supplement when I room with someone. If Cosmos can not find a room mate for you, you end up having the whole room. Because of this feature, I was able to travel everywhere by my self with reasonable price. Cosmos always provides great value for the bucks. I would do it again. I highly recommend to you all.
