Prince Edward Island & New Brunswick
Prince Edward Island is located off the eastern coast of Canada, nestled between the provinces of New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Québec and Newfoundland and Labrador in the Gulf of St. Lawrence.
The island's landscape is peaceful: rolling hills, woods, reddish white sand beaches, ocean coves and the famous red soil have given Prince Edward Island a reputation as a province of outstanding natural beauty.
Here, you can find some of the freshest seafood available anywhere in the world and with more than 60 lighthouses along the island, there are enough to keep you busy!
The Bay of Fundy, with its famously extreme tides and rock formations (Hopewell Rocks), is a popular whale-watching destination in New Brunswick. The port city of St. John is home to the New Brunswick Museum, with local artwork dating to the 1800s, and the long-standing St. John City Market's many food stalls.
