Why are Canada east coast tours extremely popular? For one, the East Coast of Canada is home to almost 17,400 miles of incredibly beautiful coastline.
Canada is a remarkably large country, the second largest country in the world! From Vancouver on Canada’s west coast to Halifax on the east coast of Canada, one must travel approximately 2,755 miles (or 4,430 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 Halifax, Nova Scotia on the Atlantic coast.
Experiencing Canada east coast tours can be like entering an enchanted world that transports you to a mixture of quaint old world charm and new world wonders. Canadian east coast tours offer tourists a mixture of aquatic adventures, urban experiences, cultural diversity, historic sites, scenic tours and hours of fascinating activities.
Although Canada east coast tours can be arranged according to what you want to see and do, here are a few “must see” places that are part of Caravan’s maritime provinces tour that should not be missed.
Nova Scotia Tour
For a real taste of the maritimes, travelers on Caravan’s Canada east coast tours explore the province of Nova Scotia, Canada’s second smallest province (behind PEI). Did you know that no matter where you are in Nova Scotia you are never more than 80-km (50 miles) from the coast?
The warm friendly people, the amazing east coast scenery (especially in the Cape Breton region), the cultural diversity and sense of down-home community are the real treasures of this region of Canada.
Throughout the province of Nova Scotia tourists can enjoy rich historical sites including the UNESCO world heritage site of Lunenburg. All types of outdoor activities and adventure sports are available here. Nova Scotia tours impress the most worldly of travelers who are have never been more struck by unspoiled natural beauty than what is offered by the spectacular Nova Scotia landscape.
New Brunswick Tour
New Brunswick is famous for it’s Fundy Tides, where the world’s highest tides can rise and fall as much as 50 feet…twice a day! You’ll also visit the Flowerpot Rocks in Hopewell Cape; unique rock formations carved by the coastal waters over thousands of years. Then, your tour will head over towards Prince Edward Island across the 8-mile Confederation Bridge, the world’s longest ocean crossing bridge.
PEI Tour – Prince Edward Island
Prince Edward Island 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”.
