Atlantic Canada. Great ocean, greater experiences.
The provinces of New Brunswick, Newfoundland and
Labrador, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island,
collectively make up the region known as Atlantic Canada.
Coastal communities hug the rugged coastline and the rocky
shores are home to an abundance of wildlife, while wild moors and
soaring mountains add to the scenic spectacle. The region is
renowned for its fresh and abundant seafood, in particular
succulent lobster, scallops, mussels, oysters and cod. A strong
community spirit thrives among Atlantic Canadians. You'll notice
that locals are naturally welcoming and genuinely sincere.
Sprawling vistas, mighty rivers and great outdoors, New Brunswick,
gives you space to breathe, and natural wonder to take your breath
away! Stroll the boardwalk through a rare sand dune, hike majestic
trails of Fundy National Park, relax on endless saltwater beaches
or climb atop some of the oldest mountains. Walk on the ocean floor
among giant rock formations at Hopewell Rocks carved by the power
of the Bay of Fundy tides, kayak sea caves, head out to see the 12
different species of whales, including the endangered North
Atlantic Right Whale. The Bay of Fundy has the highest tides in the
world as high as 50 feet. Each day 100 billion tonnes of seawater
flows in and out of the Bay of Fundy during one tide cycle more
than the combined flow of the world's freshwater rivers!
Newfoundland & Labrador
Newfoundland and Labrador is an ideal destination for people open
to new experiences - like getting eye to eye with a 30-tonne
humpback whale as icebergs drift by on the horizon and the sky
fills with seabirds that nest here in the millions. Perhaps you'd
like to visit the first European settlement in North American,
built by the Vikings five centuries before Columbus bumped into the
Caribbean. Or how about a hike along the northern spine of the
Appalachian Mountains followed by a soak in a hot tub, and a dinner
of seafood matched with a top quality wine.
Nova Scotia is a compact place dotted with communities, coves and
culture. Relax and enjoy spontaneous adventure as you explore the
nooks and crannies of our 4750 miles of coastline . With uncrowded
roads, it's easy to explore the unique charm and beauty of our
seven tourism regions. From our bustling seaport capital of Halifax
offering a blend of old world charm and new world attitude, to the
supremely scenic Cabot Trail and the brightly hued heritage homes
of Old Town Lunenburg, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, everything is
within reach in Nova Scotia. Inspiration comes easily in Nova
Scotia and can be found in our music, art, theatre and cuisine.
Nova Scotia is famous for fresh seafood, but the artistry of
winemakers, chefs, farmers and producers are all on the menu.
Prince Edward Island
Prince Edward Island is Canada's smallest and greenest province.
Cradled on the waves of the Gulf of St. Lawrence, PEI is known for
the vivid colours of its gently rolling landscape, surrounded by
miles of sandy beaches and red sandstone cliffs. Prince Edward
Island claims miles of beautiful beaches and each one has its own
distinct character. With beaches that sing and others that stun
visitors with their pristine blend of rustic solitude and splendid
red sand, Prince Edward Island's sandy expanses continue to receive
raves from, including a recent nomination as one of Canada's
