Arrive Halifax

Tour begins: 5:30 PM, The Prince George Hotel. A transfer is included from Halifax International Airport to The Prince George Hotel in the heart of historic Halifax. Kick off an exciting week with a welcome reception in Halifax at Pier 21, Gateway to Canada, which features exhibits chronicling 20th-century Canadian immigration and the poignant multimedia production, Oceans of Hope.

Peggy's Cove & Lunenburg

From Halifax, start the day with a visit to Peggy's Cove - a picturesque Nova Scotia fishing town that's one of the most-photographed spots in North America - before continuing along the rugged Atlantic coast to the fishing village of Lunenburg, renowned for its rich shipbuilding and maritime legacy. Established in the 18th century, this UNESCO World Heritage Site is one of the best surviving examples of a planned British colonial settlement in North America. After lunch, you have a choice of sightseeing in Lunenberg - see the village's 18th- and 19th-century timber-built houses on a walking tour, or visit the Fisheries Museum of the Atlantic, housed in historic waterfront buildings, to gain insights into the Maritime Provinces' seafaring heritage. Return to Halifax for an evening at leisure.

Historic Halifax and an exclusive evening at the Citadel

You may spend the entire day exploring Halifax, Nova Scotia's provincial capital and the Maritimes' largest city, as you please - or, if you wish, join your Tauck Director for a city tour, and our local guide for a tour through the Halifax Public Gardens. This evening, enjoy a Tauck Exclusive - a private tour and dinner at Halifax's venerable Citadel National Historic Site, a witness to 300 years of history offering spectacular views of the city and its celebrated harbor.

Prince Edward Island & Charlottetown

Bid a temporary goodbye to Nova Scotia as you ride a ferry to lovely Prince Edward Island. Following lunch, arrive in the provincial capital of Charlottetown for a two-night stay. Enjoy an afternoon walking tour, then settle in at your hotel, just steps from Old Charlottetown's boardwalk and Peake's Wharf. The evening is free to spend as you please.

Prince Edward Island National Park & Green Gables House

Following time to explore Charlottetown, depart for a visit to Prince Edward Island National Park; see salt marshes rich in wildlife, freshwater ponds, dramatic bluffs and quaint fishing villages as you travel along the island's coastline. The view from Orby Head, the park's highest point, is a delight - as is a tour of Green Gables House, the farmhouse immortalized by Lucy Maud Montgomery in her tales of the red-headed orphan. Tonight, cap a very special day by digging into a traditional lobster dinner - a must-have experience on P.E.I.

Living history at Port-Royal & the Habitation

Cross 8-mile-long Confederation Bridge, which joins Prince Edward Island to the province of New Brunswick, and then continue on to Nova Scotia for a locally guided tour of the Port-Royal National Historic Site and the Habitation, where costumed interpreters bring the re-created 17th-century settlement back to life. Spend the evening at leisure at your hotel, Digby Pines Golf Resort & Spa, overlooking the Bay of Fundy.

Whale Watching at Digby Neck on the Bay of Fundy

Set off with a naturalist for a whale watching cruise off Digby Neck on the Bay of Fundy, offering world-renowned whale and bird watching; keep an eye peeled for finback, minke and humpback whales and lots of seals, drawn to the bay's abundant plankton. Back at your resort in Digby, pursue what interests you most in the afternoon, then join us at this evening's farewell reception and dinner at the hotel.

Grand Pré & Journey Home

At Grand-Pré National Historic Site, visit the site of the church and cemetery of the 17th- / 18th-century Acadian village that inspired Longfellow's famed poem, Evangeline - one of the most popular poems in American history. Continue to Halifax for your return home. Tour ends: 11:45 AM at Halifax International Airport. For guests wishing to extend their stay in Halifax, Tauck can arrange additional nights at The Prince George Hotel; a transfer to Halifax International Airport is included for these bookings. Allow a minimum of two hours for flight check-in.
