You could be the winner of a 22-day driving adventure to experience the seaside towns, fresh seafood, and breathtaking vistas of the Canadian Maritimes.

With all accommodation and fully insured vehicle hire included, you'll be able to explore a truly unique holiday. 

Start your 22-day holiday in the historic waterfront city of Halifax, Nova Scotia, gateway to the Canadian Maritimes. Here you can explore the Halifax Citadel National Historic Site and enjoy lunch at a water-side restaurant. Follow the lighthouse route to Peggy’s Cove and the UNESCO World Heritage town of Lunenburg. In Nova Scotia you will stay in a luxury wilderness lodge on a half board basis before arriving in New Brunswick where highlights include visiting Fundy National Park and seeing the world’s highest tides at Hopewell Rocks.

Crossing the 13km Confederation Bridge to Prince Edward Island, you will arrive at Charlottetown, the historic capital where you will stay at The Great George Hotel. Enjoy spectacular ocean drives, warm, inviting beaches and the rolling rich red farmland of Prince Edward Island. Back in Nova Scotia, the famed Cabot Trail, reputed to be one of North America’s most scenic coastal drives, beckons. Staying in Ingonish, you will enjoy a visit to scenic Cape Breton Highlands National Park, where whales can sometimes be spotted, before continuing to Baddeck to enjoy the rest of the island.

Final stop: Charlos Cove, a quiet village where you can relax and enjoy the ocean views.
