Atlantic Provinces

Explore Atlantic Provinces:

Known as Atlantic Canada, the Atlantic provinces, the most easterly of Canada, are comprised of the provinces of New Brunswick, Newfoundland & Labrador, Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island.

With hundreds of miles of coastline, these are great provinces for beaches, whale-watching and, particularly from Newfoundland & Labrador, to see icebergs.

They are also full of history, beautiful scenery, amazing seafood, great golf courses and friendly people. The Celtic heritage is very much marked both in the language and music of the area.

Frequent non-stop flights operate year-round to both Halifax, Nova Scotia and St. John’s, Newfoundland & Labrador and at under 6 hours, the area is one of the easiest to reach from the UK.

 

Why should I visit Atlantic Canada?

There are many reasons to visit Atlantic Canada – comprising New Brunswick, Newfoundland & Labrador, Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island -not the least of which is the stunning scenery which is just a short flight from the UK.

Combine this with exciting activities including whale-watching, tidal-bore rafting, kayaking, canoeing and iceberg-spotting. With so much coastline to enjoy, it’s not surprising that the seafood is second to none – lobster, clams and oysters are plentiful! – as well as a fabulous craft beer and local winery scene, so a visit to Atlantic Canada has much to discover on all counts.

This was our 3rd Canadian holiday with Frontier Canada – we always come back to them as we know we will get a good quality holiday with no nasty surprises. Our latest holiday was arranged by Joanne, who provided an excellent service. She was able to advise us on which of their tours was the best fit for the sort of holiday we were looking for and then help us to tailor it to our exact requirements, changing flight days, removing bits from the suggested itinerary and adding others, arranging pre-booked tours and anticipating potential pitfalls (for instance when the ferry timetable changed, meaning we had to add in a night at Saint John as it was too long a drive to the next location). She really knew the area – even down to where we would get the best breakfasts by pre-booking at our accommodation and where we were better off going into town.
