Canada is generally regarded as one of the most scenic places on the planet. The world’s second largest country in area has many varied landscapes from mountains, vast plains, ice-capped regions, thousands of lakes and an extensive rugged coastline. Vikings landed in Newfoundland around a thousand years ago, however, Europeans first arrived in the late 15th century when Italian explorer Giovanni Caboto – on behalf of King Henry VII of England – documented bays full of fish and forests full of wildlife. By the early 16th century, the French were sending their own explorers and settled Quebec. Later the British were settling colonies around Hudson Bay. As was the norm in these times, the major Colonialists fought over territories and eventually in 1763, the Treaty of Paris – subsequent to the 7 Year War in Europe – ceded North America to the British.

TOUR HIGHLIGHTS

  1. L’anse aux Meadows, the only authenticated Viking site in North America and a UNESCO World Heritage Site
  2. Joggins Fossil Cliffs in Nova Scotia, home to an abundance of the world’s most important fossil discoveries
  3. Iceberg Alley, with its passing parade of 10,000-year old icebergs moving gracefully past the northeast tip of Newfoundland

Canada is generally regarding as one of the most scenic places on the planet. The world’s second-largest country in area has many varied landscapes from mountains, vast plains, ice-capped regions, thousands of lakes and an extensive rugged coastline.

Much like Australia, most of the population – about 90% – is heavily concentrated in one region, along the US Border. Canada grew steadily during the 20th century due mainly to immigration. Her well-loved red and white maple flag was first raised in 1965 after the country started to cut legal ties with Britain. The Canadian constitution replaced the British Act eventually in 1982. Today, Canada is one of the richest nations due mainly to its natural resources. This tour discovers the scenic parts of Canada’s Atlantic where you’ll meet friendly locals, learn about the ancient and colonial history, spot wildlife and breathe air that is clean and pure. Join us and don’t forget your camera!
