This R-tinerary guide is a 9-day trip to Montréal and Nova Scotia. Montréal the largest city in Canada’s Québec province and sits along the Saint Lawrence River. Neighborhoods ranging from cobblestoned French Colonial Vieux-Montréal to Bohemian Plateau make up this lovely and old city.
In Montréal enjoy a guided bike tour of the city and a wine and food tour in the wine country. Also, hike to the top of Mont Royal and tour the Notre Dame Basilica in this charming and beautiful city.
From Montréal, fly to Halifax, Nova Scotia, one of eastern Canada’s Maritime provinces on the Atlantic Ocean. Nova Scotia is a peninsula with offshore islands and is home to puffins, seals, extreme tides, whale-watching and much, much more. Additionally, our guide includes information on a very remote, but lovely lodge in the southernmost part of Nova Scotia. Here, experience the largest wildlife area in the Maritimes, the Tobeatic Wilderness. Also, stargaze in the “Acadian Skies & Mi’kmaq Lands” (an area that is privileged with a lack of light pollution, and an island climate with clear skies), fly fish, kayak, hike, or relax in the very beautiful surroundings, while enjoying fantastic meals prepared with the freshest ingredients by the lodge’s in-house chef.
Then, after your stay in the wilderness, drive to the quaint seaside town of Annapolis Royal. Here some of the oldest wooden buildings in Canada can be found, along with over 135 registered heritage properties. R-tinerary provides information on where to stay, places to dine, and activities to enjoy while in the area. And includes particulars on the world-renowned Candlelight Graveyard Tour. Additionally, in Annapolis Royal, you are able to observe the phenomenal tidal changes at the Bay of Fundy.
From Annapolis Royal, make a short drive to the port town of Lunenburg, Nova Scotia, located on the western side of Mahone Bay. In 1995, the UNESCO designated Lunenburg a World Heritage Site. Coupled with its narrow streets and unique architecture, it is a picturesque seaside town. This is a popular site for cyclists and photographers.
