Make your leisurely way through a land where traditional farming, fishing, and logging are still carried on every day. This is a land where life is lived on the edge of the ocean and beside sparkling rivers and lakes. This trip lets you enjoy all the highlights, from the world’s highest tides to the rugged highlands of Cape Breton’s National Park, Prince Edward Island’s seemingly endless sand beaches and New Brunswick’s salmon rivers. Canada’s Maritime Provinces – New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, and Prince Edward Island – are made up of a group of islands, peninsulas, and the adjoining mainland. It is the oldest settled part of Canada, yet the population has remained low and nature is still unspoiled. It is never hard to find a landscape that you have all to yourself.

Acadia is the name that early explorers gave to the Maritime coast of Canada, perhaps because it reminded them of Acadia of ancient Greece, a land where the gentle country made rural life especially idyllic. The descendants of the first European settlers are still known as Acadians and Acadia is still a land of exceptional beauty and tranquility. Wild landscapes are intermixed with small farms and petite, intimate cities.

This fly-drive has them all... from modern Montreal to Canada's oldest settlement; from Caribou in the Gaspe to Beluga whales in the St. Lawrence; from quaint Atlantic fishing villages to crystal clear inland lakes and rivers hidden in the forests. Follow the mighty St. Lawrence River to its gulf and the sea. Crossing the river by ferry, you visit the Gaspe Peninsula, where seabirds live in colonies of thousands, and descendants of Canada's early French settlers fish and farm in tiny villages clinging to the coast. Continuing to New Brunswick, you experience the Bay of Fundy, with the highest recorded tides in the world. Your journey ends at Halifax, Nova Scotia, a seaport from wooden ship days, where schooners can still be seen in the harbour next to the busy restored waterfront.
