Nova Scotia is the crown jewel of Canada’s East Coast. Composed of a peninsula and its surrounding islands, it offers you the chance to indulge yourself in the Canadian outdoors at its best, while enjoying excellent accommodation, dining, and other services. The inland is still wild and forested, with quiet rivers and lakes. The coast-line is infinitely varied, from rocky peninsulas to seemingly endless sand beaches. And each stretch of coastline has its own ”ocean” – the Bay of Fundy, with the highest recorded tides in the world (up to 16 metres); Northumberland Strait, with the warmest waters north of the Carolinas; the Atlantic coast with it’s wave-swept white sand beaches; and the Bras D’Or Lake, a great inland salt sea.

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.
