Atlantic Canada

  • New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, Newfoundland and Labrador are the picturesque maritime gems known collectively as Canada’s Atlantic Provinces. The coastline is rugged, wild and unforgettably beautiful, the vibe is distinctly laid back, the villages are quaint, the outdoor activities are endless, the wildlife is plentiful, and the lobsters are the most delicious we’ve ever tasted!

    Picturesque Prince Edward Island

    What Canada’s smallest province lacks in size, it more than makes up for with sheer beauty and boundless culture. This is where the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge escaped for a taste of the wilderness on their 2011 Royal Tour of Canada. Along with all the picturesque beauty of this province comes a fascinating cultural seam. Charlottetown is where the founding fathers met to transform Canada from a colony to a country. It’s also an amazing place to head outdoors, for fishing, hiking, kayaking, whale and seal-watching.

    Maritime Nova Scotia

    The quaint fishing villages dotted along the extensive coastline of Nova Scotia create a varied and welcoming environment for visitors. A highlight of any stay in Nova Scotia is beautiful Cape Breton Island, a fascinating blend of Scottish, Native and Acadian communities. Follow the 187 mile Cabot Trail as it twists between the Gulf of St Lawrence and the Atlantic, or head out to the wilds of Cape Breton Highlands National Park. Other must-sees include the capital city, Halifax, home to the 200 year old Fort Redoubt National Historic Site. Just a short drive along the coast are the picturesque towns of Peggy’s Cove and Victorian Lunenberg.

    The Charm of New Brunswick

    New Brunswick is a charming destination of varied landscapes. Saint John is New Brunswick’s largest city, surrounded by sandstone cliffs and sandy beaches, lapped by waters warm enough for summer swimming. The Bay of Fundy, which lies between the Canadian provinces of New Brunswick and Nova Scotia, is home to the world’s highest tidal range as well as the spectacular Hopewell Rocks which stand tall and proud in the bay. Visit at low tide to see the extent of the erosion on the rocks as a result of this tidal phenomenon. One of Canada’s oldest seaside resorts, St Andrews, has a very laid back atmosphere and is impossibly pretty, whilst nearby Shediac is known as the lobster capital of the world, so understandably this fabulous seafood tops most menus in the region

    North America's Best Kept Secrets

    Newfoundland and Labrador are hidden gems of Atlantic Canada and perfect for an adventure holiday. Newfoundland’s shoreline is scattered with small fishing villages, inlets, fjords, sand dunes and bays so this is the perfect place to enjoy the beauty of the region. Discover the Viking Trail, one of the best kept secrets in the world, stretching all the way from the provinces’ west coast to southern Labrador. Untamed wilderness awaits you in Labrador, where you can see the world’s largest herd of caribou, go on a snowmobiling safari or enjoy some fishing with a local fisherman.

    Widely considered as the specialist for Newfoundland experiences, Linkum Tours offer unique itineraries, ranging from relaxed touring holidays to pulse-racing soft adventures. Guides and hosts are Newfoundlanders, passionate about the place they live and preservation of the environment for future generations. Although whales leaping through the air, moose wandering out of the dawn mist and icebergs appearing on the horizon are unquestionably memorable, the small touches such as local dining and quaint accommodations in idyllic locations set these tours apart. A choice of nine itineraries have been created to showcase Newfoundland, and each can be completely self-guided, semi-guided with a host leading you through some experiences, or fully-guided whereby a guide will accompany you the whole way. Owning two award-winning lighthouse inns; Quirpon Lighthouse Inn and Cape Anguille Lighthouse Inn, which offer comfort, history and scenic ocean views, you can include a stay in one or both of these operational lights which continue to guide voyaging mariners, undoubtedly adding a unique experience to any Newfoundland holiday.

    Overnight at the northern tip of Newfoundland where Quirpon Lighthouse Inn will draw you into the life of an isolated lightkeeper. This is Newfoundland’s best location for spotting whales and icebergs, so try to beat the captain at spotting them!

    Take a walk along our cliff-top trails or explore the island following only your whims. Kittiwake colonies and Eider ducks nesting in tiny coves where there used to be a fishing village are favourites.
    Now that you have wandered by land it is time to visit the whales by sea. Our zodiac will take you on an exploration of the coastline not only in search of the massive wonders of this area but also the subtle beauty - kittiwake colonies and eider ducks nesting in tiny coves where your boat can squeeze through ensuring fun and dozens of photos. Feeling less adventurous? Wander down to the indoor whale watching station with your books and have a good read – not to worry, the sound of the whales will tell you when to look up.

    Hotel: Quirpon Lighthouse Inn

    Day 3

    Leave the island to visit the town of St. Anthony to learn the story of the British medical missionary, Sir Wilfred Grenfell. His remarkable perseverance and enthusiasm saved countless lives at the turn of the century and his legacy still lives on.

Visit the Jordi Bonet murals in the rotunda of the hospital. Born in Spain, Bonet’s childhood would be marked by the Spanish Civil War before migrating and creating works of art famous around the world. While the pieces such as the Titanic Memorial and the one featured in JFK airport in New York are seen by millions, this is more of a secret.
