Meredith Travel 2017 Maritime Provinces

Q:  What three things do New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, and Prince Edward Island all have in common?

A:   They’re beautiful in the fall, they have a rich multi-cultural heritage tied to the land and sea, and Meredith Travel will be visiting all three from September 26-October 5, 2017.

Do come join us as Meredith Travel takes its first New World tour. Beginning in English colonial Halifax, the itinerary will move eastward up the coast to the largest 18th Century French fortress in North America, the Fortress of Louisbourg. As we travel north along the beautiful Cabot Trail on Cape Breton Island, you may be struck by how much it resembles the coast of Scotland—perhaps some consolation to those transported by England in the 18th and early 19th centuries.

Throughout the tour, you will observe how the Native American, Scottish, Irish, French Acadian, and English cultures are still expressed in language, customs, folkways, and food. Learn firsthand about the importance of fishing to all who have lived here, from the  Mi’kmaq — who undoubtedly were the first to greet both the Vikings and, much later, Englishman John Cabot — to the fishermen who maintain the scallop and lobster beds today.

As always, this Meredith Travel tour will visit UNESCO World Heritage sites, historic cities, stunning natural wonders, and off-the-beaten path destinations, all of which provide unexpected and memorable rewards.
