Explore Location

Annapolis Valley
Travel to the scenic Annapolis Valley, Atlantic Canada’s richest agricultural region, full of fields, dykes, orchards and vineyards waiting to be explored. The power of nature is apparent here with the world famous Bay of Fundy tides and ever-changing landscape of rocky shores, fertile farmlands, salt marshes and broad sandy beaches.
Cape Breton
Cape Breton Island is at the eastern end of the Canadian province of Nova Scotia. Its Cabot Trail is a roadway encircling the island, passing forests and rugged coastline. The drive skirts Cape Breton Highlands National Park, whose Skyline Trail footpath overlooks the Gulf of St. Lawrence, known for migratory whales.
Fredericton is the capital of New Brunswick in eastern Canada, on the St. John River. It’s known for its Historic Garrison District, an 18th-century British army base now home to a Changing of the Guard ceremony, artists’ studios and an outdoor theatre. The Beaverbrook Art Gallery’s Canadian and international collections are nearby. Just south, Fredericton Boyce Farmers Market sells seasonal produce and crafts.
Halifax, an Atlantic Ocean port in eastern Canada, is the provincial capital of Nova Scotia. A major business centre, it’s also known for its maritime history. The city’s dominated by the hilltop Citadel, a star-shaped fort completed in the 1850s. Waterfront warehouses known as the Historic Properties recall Halifax’s days as a trading hub for privateers, notably during the War of 1812.
Moncton is a city in southeastern New Brunswick, Canada. Resurgo Place is home to the Moncton Museum, which explores the city’s history, as well as the Transportation Discovery Centre, with hands-on exhibits. The restored 1920s Capitol Theatre hosts concerts. To the northwest, Magnetic Hill seems to defy logic and, at its base, causes cars to roll uphill.
Saint John
Saint John, New Brunswick is a special place where the St. John River meets the Bay of Fundy. Canada’s first incorporated city is reinventing itself. Saint John is a city on the Bay of Fundy, in New Brunswick, Canada. It’s known for the Reversing Rapids, a phenomenon caused by bay tides colliding with the Saint John River. Food and craft stalls fill the Saint John City Market, in an 1876 building.
