Newfoundland & Nova Scotia Experience

3 NIGHTS St. John’s Newfoundland • 4 NIGHTS Nova Scotia

Newfoundland is located on the eastern edge of North America. The capital city St. John’s, where the locals speak with Irish accents, shares the same latitude as Paris and Seattle. And now with the new direct service from Dublin it is just over four and a half hours away. With the North Atlantic Ocean at their doorstep, Newfoundland is home to Iceberg Alley, one of the best places in the world to view icebergs. Just off the coast, the meeting of the cool Labrador Current and the warm Gulf Stream creates an abundance of marine life that attracts thousands of whales, and provides rich nesting grounds for millions of seabirds.
For a city with more pubs and clubs per capita than almost any city in Canada, it’s fitting that Halifax’s most famous brewmaster was also their mayor three times. Alexander Keith’s original 1820 brewery welcomes visitors with costumed guides, stories and, of course, good ale. Considered one of the greatest marine disasters in recorded history, the story of the Titanic begins in Southampton on April 10, 1912, when the vessel left on her maiden voyage.  For some of those who lost their lives aboard the ill-fated ship, Halifax is where the story ended. You can visit Fairview Lawn Cemetery and see the gravestones most of which are plain granite blocks. In some cases families erected more elaborate gravestones and you can also see the Celtic cross and the monument to the ‘Unknown Child’

Staff Tips

Just 45 minutes from Halifax, a day trip to Hubbards is great for someone who is looking to relax and explore the Bluenose Coast. You will find some wonderful treasures or just enjoy the atmosphere at the Farmers' Market. To end a perfect day enjoy a lobster dinner with all the fixings at the Shore Club.

Taking in the lower half of the Avalon Peninsula, the Irish Loop and Cape Shore routes bring you from St. John's to Trepassey, Cape St. Mary's, and Placentia. A rich history and invigorating coastline make for a journey full of opportunities to see whales and birds, and to experience the Irish culture.
