Adventure Begins in Nova Scotia

Nova Scotia, located on the east coast and almost completely surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean, is home to three national parks and is known for its historical appeal. Upon arriving in Halifax, just one look out the airplane window, and you’re immediately transported to vacation mode. The magnificent ocean and the lush landscape give a peek into what you’ll experience over the next eight days.

This land adventure begins with the Sugar Moon Farm and tasting authentic maple syrup tapped on site. You’ll learn the process that takes this deliciousness from tree to table. Yum!

 The Charm of Prince Edward Island

The adventure next features a picturesque ferry ride to Prince Edward Island, located in the Gulf of St. Lawrence, meaning endless beaches and fresh sea air. The stunning white shingled tower and red iron lantern of the Wood Islands Lighthouse, built in 1876, are striking contrasts against the beautiful blue skies. Local guides will lead a tour and share the history of the lighthouse, plus you’ll learn about the area’s sea life and sea glass, which support the area’s aquatic ecosystem.

Junior Adventures will have their own kite-making and flying activity on the shore, and it will be a beautiful site to watch the sea breeze carry the kites high in the sky.

Fans of the “Anne of Green Gables” stories will recognize Avonlea Village, the fictitious name author Lucy Maud Montgomery gave to Cavendish. Here, you’ll explore the historic buildings and visit the museum dedicated to the noted author and the schoolhouse where she taught. Avonlea Village is dotted with replications of houses and shops from the time of the novels. You can even opt to roll up your sleeves to plant and dig potatoes, take a carriage ride, and have tea with a descendant of her family.
