Celtic Colours of Atlantic Canada is a trip for those of you that enjoy your folk music in its pure form.  Attracting singers from all over the world, this festival spreads across Cape Breton Island in Atlantic Canada’s province of Nova Scotia giving you the best excuse for travelling through this wonderful region. Add in some of the best whale watching available, fresh food from the land, rivers and sea and wildlife and scenery that changes regularly and you have a tour to remember. 

If the music is not for you, the provinces that make up Atlantic Canada have a multitude of scenic and interesting drives and adventures to make your perfect holiday.  The beautiful Gros Morne National Park and the remoteness of a stay in the Lighthouse Keepers Cottage on Quirpon Island are just some of the wonders of Newfoundland.  At the right time of year, watch as huge icebergs float by along ‘Iceberg Alley’.  A full holiday of around two weeks could easily be spent just in Newfoundland.  Visiting Nova Scotia, start in the delightful city of Halifax and be sure to visit Cape Breton Island with spectacular whale watching opportunities, and Louisburg Fortress where you will see life as it was in 1744 are all found in Nova Scotia.  New Brunswick is home to the incredible tides of the Bay of Fundy, visit Hopewell Rocks to view the incredible tides and the rocks shaped like giant vases are covered by the tide each six hours.  Last, but by no means least, Prince Edward Island with beaches, villages, and PEI’s National Park featuring a 19th century wooden farmhouse, inspiration for the classic novel “Anne of Green Gables”. and the provincial capital Charlottetown.
