Canadian East Coast Vacation Packages

Visit the east coast of Canada, home to almost 17,400 miles of incredibly beautiful coastline. Canadian East Coast tours extremely popular.
Canada is a remarkably large country, the second largest country in the world! To travel by land from Vancouver on Canada’s Pacific west coast to Halifax on Canada’s Atlantic east coast, one must cover approximately 2755 miles (or 4430 kilometers).

Most non Canadians view Canada’s largest city, Toronto as being in eastern Canada, when in fact Toronto Ontario is almost 800 miles inland from Atlantic Canada’s Halifax in Nova Scotia.

Toronto is unique however, in that it is still accessible by water from the Atlantic Ocean because the St. Lawrence River extends almost 744 miles inland from the Atlantic coast; all the way to Lake Ontario. In fact, many Canadian east coast tours will actually begin in Ontario or Quebec.

Caravan’s current Canadian east coast vacation packages begin and end in the heart of the Canadian Maritimes, in historic Halifax, Nova Scotia.

A Canada east coast road trip is like entering an enchanted world that transports you to a mixture of quaint old world charm and new world wonders. Driving the east coast of Canada, Caravan’s Canadian east coast bus tours offer tourists a mixture of aquatic adventures, urban experiences, cultural diversity, historic sites, scenic tours and hours of fascinating activities.

Caravan’s Canadian east coast tours have been carefully arranged so that the itinerary includes many of the Maritime’s “must see” places that should not be missed as you visit the maritime provinces of New Brunswick, Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island (PEI).

Nova Scotia Tours

For a real taste of eastern Canada, travelers on Canadian east coast tours should experience the maritime province of Nova Scotia, Canada’s second smallest province (behind PEI). Nova Scotia vacation packages with Caravan will introduce you to Nova Scoitia’s warm friendly people, the amazing rugged coastline scenery (especially in the Cape Breton region), the province’s cultural diversity and the sense of down home community; all real treasures of this region of eastern Canada. Throughout the province of Nova Scotia tourists can enjoy rich historical sites including the UNESCO world heritage site of Lunenburg and the fishermen’s village of Peggy’s Cove. All types of outdoor east coast activities and adventure sports are available here. Nova Scotia tours impress the most worldly of travelers who are never more struck by unspoiled natural beauty than what is offered by the spectacular Nova Scotia landscape.

PEI – Prince Edward Island Tours

Prince Edward Island, another destination on Caravan’s east coast tours, is the place to visit for unique artistic and cultural heritage of the islanders. This island is the smallest province of Canada and is endowed with beautiful white sandy beaches circled by great scenic beauty. PEI tours offer tourists one of Canada’s most relaxing destinations. PEI is also home to the “Cavendish” house, the location of one of Canada’s greatest stories, “Anne of Green Gables”.

New Brunswick Sightseeing

The majority of tourists traveling between New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island on Canadian east coast tours use the Confederation Bridge which spans over 8 miles of the Atlantic Ocean. Another major tourist attraction in New Brunswick is The Bay of Fundy, with its world famous Fundy Tides, the highest tides in the world at over 50 feet! The Flowerpot Rocks at Hopewell Cape is a popular New Brunswick park where at low tide you can walk along the ocean’s floor prior to witnessing the powerful tide that area is famous for. Tides can change as quickly as 6 to 8 feet per hour so tourists on Canadian east coast tours that visit this area are bound to see the infamous tides in action.
