This fully escorted tour will see you perched on the edge of North America, Newfoundland and Nova Scotia - Canada’s two most easterly provinces - are unlike the rest of Canada in their cultural traditions. The country’s closest points to Europe, the locals here are descendants from English, Scottish and Irish settlers. Our Newfoundland and Nova Scotia tours introduce you to some of the region's highlights. Explore Nova Scotia’s rugged southern coastline, cruise the scenic, iceberg-studded waters to spot dolphins and seabirds and walk in UNESCO-listed Gros Morne National Park, spending time in the vibrant cities and pretty towns along the way. One of the many highlights will be climbing aboard an included scenic boat trip, to learn about the geological wonders, rich cultural history and the diversity of Bonne Bay, situated in the heart of Gros Morne National Park.

Here, take your own stab at photographing the famous white-and-red striped lighthouse that punctuates the rocky seascape. The area is very pretty and you might like to take a moment to perch on a nearby rock and breathe in the salty air, listen to the gulls overhead and watch the fishing boats bobbing on the waves. Back in Halifax this afternoon, you can enjoy the rest of the day to explore as you please.
