Fall in love with Canada all over again. Take a luxury motor coach tour from Alberta to the Maritimes with Getaway Vacations!
Departing from Alberta, find yourself on a luxury motor coach where you can relax and enjoy the sights and sounds as we embark on a spectacular Canadian adventure. With interesting stops in many historical Canadian cities including Winnipeg, Thunder Bay, Ottawa, Quebec City, Montreal, Fredericton, Charlottetown, Baddeck, Halifax, Saint John and Niagara Falls; this is a trip of a lifetime.
Take in the awe inspiring Kakabeka Falls of Thunder Bay, part of the historic route of Canada's Voyageurs
In Quebec we will explore Quebec City, with 400 years of history, European charm and cobblestone streets. Our group will take a memorable tour of downtown Quebec City and visit the Shrine of Ste. Anne de Beaupre , Grandmother of Jesus. Each year, this important Catholic sanctuary receives more than half a million pilgrims, and it is said that miracles still occur at this religious site. From there we move on to Montreal to experience Notre Dame Basilica in all its gothic revival glory and explore the natural landmark of Mount Royal which offers some of Montreal's most magnificent views.
At last we arrive in the Maritimes...
In Fredericton we visit St. Jean Port Joli, known for its craftspeople and artists, then on to the world's longest covered bridge in Hartland. Our next stop is Magnetic Hill in Moncton. Here, when people drive their vehicle to the bottom and take their foot off the brake their car will roll uphill. We'll let you decide if it is magnetic or a natural phenomenon! We then cross Confederation Bridge on our way to Charlottetown. Naturally this trip would not be complete without a visit to Anne of Green Gables to pay homage to Canada's favorite red head, PEI National Park and of course, a traditional Lobster Dinner at New Glasgow Lobster Suppers.
Peggy's Cove - home of iconic lighthouses, where every turn reveals an authentically Nova Scotian view
By ferry we will cross the Northumberland Strait to Nova Scotia and visit the Alexander Graham Bell Museum and have a picnic lunch enjoying the splendor of Autumn on the Cabot Trail. Two nights in Halifax will bring us to lunch at Peggy’s Cove, the most-photographed site in Canada, and a local tour of the waterfront. In Saint John we stop for a visit to Cape Hopewell and Reversing Falls, one of the seven natural wonders of the world.
Next up...we stop in beautiful St. Andrews by the sea and move on for a sweet treat at Sucrerie de la Montagne for a “Sugaring Off Feast” just outside of Montreal. Gananoque is our next destination with a 2.5 hour cruise through 1000 Islands. We spend two nights in spectacular Niagara Falls taking in the scenic stops along the way including a visit to Welland Canal. Next we visit a traditional family mean in “Amish Country” in Middlebury before we move on to Rockford, St. Cloud, Minot, Swift Current and Home Sweet Home.
