The provinces of Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island and Newfoundland & Labrador together make up Atlantic Canada.
Atlantic Canada is one of Canada’s most diverse and historic regions. The four provinces of Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, New Brunswick and Newfoundland & Labrador combine to create a vibrant region. It is filled with colour; with the sea salt smells and tastes of the ocean; with the friendliest fishing communities waiting to welcome you in. Each province has its own unique flavour, with cultures ranging from Scottish to French, British to Acadian with plenty of First Nations native heritage in the mix. Dive in with guided tours of lighthouses and villages. Get stuck into the local restaurants and al fresco dining. And explore like a local by bike or on foot.
Atlantic Canada is renowned for its delicious seafood. Explore the winding coast roads for the day and when you’ve filled up on the views, tuck into the food. Every pitstop offers palm-sized scallops, fresh juicy lobsters and clam bakes fresh from the shore. You can explore miles of sandy beaches with the warmest oceans in Canada. The provinces boast no fewer than 8 stunning national parks between them and 6 UNESCO World Heritage Sites. From cycling to hiking, kayaking to cruising, there are plenty of ways to enjoy the stunning landscapes. Plus, Atlantic Canada is one of the best places on Earth for whale watching. The rich waters of the Bay of Fundy attract up to 15 species of whale and no holiday in Atlantic Canada would be complete without an iconic photo of a humpback’s fluke.
