Captivating Cape Breton | Discover the East of Nova Scotia

Holiday Duration: 10 Nights

"Every thing went as smooth as clockwork"

I would like to thank you all, especially Joanne, for organising our amazing fly drive holiday to Canada. Every thing went as smooth as clockwork, with lovely accommodations, and well thought out instructions to them. We saw bears, caribou, chipmunks, and moose, but we were all amazed at the scenery, every twist in the road was another photographic scene, we shall recommend this holiday through your company, to all our friends.

An amazing road trip through Nova Scotia’s east side, starting in Halifax, the vibrant capital city. Explore the charming waterfront, visit the historical landmarks such as the Citadel Hill, and indulge in local cuisine at the bustling farmer’s markets. As you continue your journey, head towards Cape Breton Island, renowned for its breathtaking landscapes and the famous Cabot Trail. Drive along the winding coastal roads, witness the dramatic cliffs, and take in the panoramic views of the Gulf of St. Lawrence. A must-visit destination on Cape Breton Island is Louisbourg, where you can step back in time and experience life in an 18th-century fortress. Lastly, make your way to Charlos Cove, a serene fishing village, known for its picturesque waterfront and tranquil beaches. Enjoy relaxing strolls along the shoreline and immerse yourself in the peaceful atmosphere. Your Nova Scotia road trip will be packed with stunning vistas, cultural experiences, and unforgettable memories.

We have just returned from our week in Nova Scotia and wanted to thank you for organising it all. Both hotels were excellent, the Halliburton was very well placed in the city and their restaurant is really excellent. The Hotel Atlantica's cottage was just what we wanted, by the sea and equipped with all we needed and quiet. We explored lots of that south coast with a quick trip to the north but more to see next time! Your printed driving instructions were a GREAT help, not something we have been given before and greatly appreciated them.
