Heading out along the south coast of Nova Scotia, we pass the famous picturesque lighthouse at Peggy’s Cove, on to UNESCO World Heritage Site of Old Town Lunenburg. Old Town Lunenburg is the best surviving example of a British planned colonial settlement in North America, with its colourful waterfront, narrow streets and captivating architecture it is also home to Nova Scotia’s largest fishing fleet.
The lesser explored Maritime Provinces of Canada, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island are strongly influenced by their British Colonial history. This sparsely populated region accounts for almost half of Canada’s potato crop and is a world leader in potato production. One of our visits will highlight the importance of this crop. With a large number of fruit farms alongside the traditional livestock farms, you can be assured of high quality and interesting visits.
Our extension includes Niagara Falls and historic Niagara on the Lake. We take a narrated ride on the Maid of the Mist boat, or the Hornblower as it is called on the Canadian side of the Falls, which sails up the Niagara River to the base of the magnificent falls. Following this we continue touring along the Gorge with stops at the Whirlpool and the Spanish Aero car.
A stop is made in the picturesque colonial town of Niagara on the Lake and historic Fort George, which was of major importance in the defence of Upper Canada by British forces in the 1812 War.
