The history of this part of Canada has been shaped by settlers – first came the Vikings, followed by the French, Irish, Scottish and English.
Made up of the provinces of Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, New Brunswick and Newfoundland, and known as the Maritime Provinces, the region is awash with fascinating sites of historical significance. It also has amazingly diverse scenery, from dramatically rocky and rugged shorelines in Newfoundland to the winelands of Nova Scotia, the quaint towns of New Brunswick and the green landscapes of Prince Edward Island.
You’ll find wildlife in abundance in this part of Canada, including whales, puffins, moose and bears. A self-drive holiday is the perfect way to see the diversity that’s on offer in Atlantic Canada – no two days are ever the same, and the scenery and coastal villages, as well as the national parks and delicious seafood and wine, make this an excellent touring area.
