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.

Other popular activities on Cape Breton Island include whale-watching cruises, Cape Breton Highlands National Park, and the Alexander Graham Bell Museum.

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.
