Atlantic Canada

Trip finder



The Maritime Provinces are where Canada first met the wider world. This region has fascinating sites of historical significance and diverse landscapes, flora and fauna to explore.

In the fjords of Gros Morne National Park, Newfoundland has some of the most dramatic scenery east of the Rockies, made even more striking by the huge icebergs that drift down the east coast on the Labrador Current.

New Brunswick is home to the pastoral lands of Acadia, world-beating salmon fishing on the Mirimichi River and the Bay of Fundy.

Sleepy Prince Edward Island inspired 'Anne of Green Gables' and is a land of green fields, white beaches and rich red soils.

Nova Scotia, with its brightly coloured fishing villages, stacked lobster pots and strong maritime history embodies the romance of the sea more than any other province.
