Day 3  Cape Breton Island
Today it’s off to beautiful Cape Breton Island, which was originally settled by the Loyalists from New York state. They were followed by Scottish immigrants, choosing this region because it reminded them of their homelands. We’ll also visit one of Canada’s most popular attractions, The Alexander Graham Bell National Historic Site in Baddeck, Nova Scotia, overlooking beautiful Bras d’Or Lake. Meals: B, D
Day 4  Cabot Trail
Spectacular scenery is the highlight today as you travel along the Cabot Trail. We will spend the day exploring much of this famed road in Cape Breton Highlands National Park, which winds through charming communities and breathtaking scenery. A visit to Cape Breton is sure to thrill you. Its only rival in beauty is the seaside French and Scottish settlements nestled below the mountains resembling the highlands of Scotland. We’ll enjoy a relaxing picnic lunch along the way as we experience the scenic nooks and crannies of this remarkable landscape. Meals: B, Box Lunch
Day 5  Ferry to Prince Edward Island
We leave Nova Scotia today and take a ferry to Prince Edward Island, home of Lucy Maud Montgomery, who wrote the book Anne of Green Gables.

After breakfast, we leave Prince Edward Island via the nine-mile long Confederation Bridge. We take in breathtaking views as we drive along the Bay of Fundy, stopping at one of the province’s most popular and intriguing attractions, the Hopewell Rocks. Over the centuries the massive tides have carved these unique rock formations known as the “Pots,” which provide incredible photo opportunities with their natural beauty.

Atlantic, the luxury steamship which ran aground here in 1873. Then we visit the picturesque fishing village of Peggy’s Cove.
