Day 3

Breakfast will be included at the hotel prior to checking out. Your first stop of the day will be at Fundy National Park, which was established in 1948 in an attempt to rescue its ailing ecosystem. Although Fundy is small in scale to most other national parks, it is unique in that it features scenic coastal waters with its world famous giant tides and its interior backcountry of Acadian forests. The landscape originated in undersea volcanic activity, which accounts for its mineral rich soils. You will also visit the Hopewell Rocks, where you may have the opportunity to walk on the ocean floor if the tide is low. See where the world’s highest tides have gouged four-story sculptures from the cliffs. At low tide, the rock formations look like giant flowerpots, while at high tide they practically disappear. Next, you will cross Confederation Bridge, the world’s longest bridge over ice-covered salt water connecting the mainland with Canada’s smallest province, Prince Edward Island. You will check in for a two-night stay at the Rodd Charlottetown (902-894-7371). From the moment you step into the grand lobby of this four and a half star hotel with its marble floors and barrel--vaulted ceilings, you will be surrounded by the historic elegance. Along with "old world" charm, this hotel features an indoor pool, fitness room, sauna, and whirlpool. Each room is equipped with a hairdryer, iron and ironing board, telephone, coffee maker, and more. Rodd Charlottetown Hotel is located in the downtown core, only a 1/2 block from the Confederation Centre of the Arts, shopping, and Charlottetown's business district. This evening you will enjoy a Maritime tradition, the Lobster Bake. Tasty chowder or soup, delicious locally cultivated mussels, salad and homemade rolls will accompany a one-pound lobster; an alternative entrée is available upon request. If you still have room, treat yourself to a dazzling array of scrumptious sweets. Relax and enjoy the rest of the evening at your waterfront escape.

Day 4

Following breakfast included at the hotel, you will visit Green Gables, which has become famous around the world as the inspiration for the setting in Lucy Maud Montgomery’s classic tale of fiction, Anne of Green Gables. In real life, this farm was the home of cousins of Montgomery’s grandfather. Next, you are off to Prince Edward Island National Park, renowned for its red sandstone cliffs, fine white sandy beaches and dunes, and lush green fields. The park’s theme – “sea, people and the changing landscape” – represents the island’s heritage dating from the earliest native people to the European settlers who followed. Coastal erosion has continued to be a problem for the habitat of shorebirds that make PEI their home. Afterwards, you will take a city tour of Charlottetown, including a stop at Confederation Landing Park where Regis and Kelly aired their show. In 1864 Charlottetown was the unlikely birthplace of Canada, but it has proven that great things can come of humble beginnings. Much of Charlottetown’s heritage and charm of the past still remains as seen in its beautiful waterfront and historic buildings. Your final stop in Charlottetown will be at Cow’s Creamery Factory, where you will discover and taste the making of Cows famous super premium ice cream. You will then return to the hotel to have dinner on your own and enjoy the remainder of the evening on your own.

I have seen the Canadian and American Rockies, the Andes, the Alps and the Highlands of Scotland, but for simple beauty, Cape Breton outrivals them all.” Your first stop on Cape Breton will be in Baddeck to visit the Alexander Graham Bell Museum. Located on the shores of Lake Bras d’Or, the museum commemorates the life and work of the inventor of the telephone along with a slew of other inventions.

In addition to the graceful stone church and the Interpretive Center, the site also features a statue of “Evangeline,” the heroine of Longfellow’s epic poem that details the experiences of a young Acadian woman who devotes her entire life to finding the man she loves from whom she was separated at the time of deportation.
