Itinerary

Day 1 - Saint John in New Brunswick

The arrival city is Saint John in New Brunswick. The city is situated on the north shore of the Bay of Fundy, at the mouth of the Saint John River. It is the oldest incorporated city in Canada. A beautiful waterfront and its proximity to the Bay of Fundy make it a great starting point for the tour.

Day 2 - Saint John to Amherst (288 kilometers / 180 miles)

The Bay of Fundy is one of the seven wonders of the world. It hosts the highest tides on earth, the rarest whales, semi-precious minerals, and dinosaur fossils. A unique coastal phenomenon, catching the low tide at Hope Well Rocks will be your goal today. The tides reach 16 meters (56 feet) in the bay. A drive to the bottom of the world famous Magnetic Hill in Moncton will leave you mystified, a full first day no doubt.

Day 3 - Amherst to Digby (435 kilometers / 272 miles)

A steady diet of country inns, small bed and breakfasts, and seaside cabins make your day today. The breathtaking countryside is spectacular as you cruise along on two wheels. There won’t be any place else you would rather be. Digby in Nova Scotia is your stop for the night. The town is famous for its scallop fishing. Hmm, wonder what’s on the menu for dinner this evening.

Day 4 - Digby to Lunenburg (349 kilometers / 217 miles)

You will continue on today traveling south hugging the coastline all the way. A taste of Nova Scotia is at every turn. Fishing villages and small seafood cafes line the roadsides. The stop for the evening is in the old port town of Lunenburg. The city has narrow streets, unique architecture, and is the home to Nova Scotias’ sailing ambassador “The Blue Nose II”. A walk on the boardwalk to visit the many gift shops and maybe ice cream to top off the incredible day will make your day.

Day 5 - Lunenburg to Halifax (179 kilometers / 111 miles)

After breakfast on the dock overlooking the waterfront, you will start out for another amazing leg of this tour. Today, the group will follow the coast line to a world famous lighthouse.

Peggy’s Point Lighthouse is one of Nova Scotia’s well-known lighthouses and maybe the most photographed in Canada. It is located in the quaint fishing village of Peggy’s Cove along the north shore. After spending some time watching for whales and exploring around the rocks, along with lots of photos, you will be then off to Halifax to spend the night.

Day 6 - Halifax to Port Hawkesbury (308 kilometers / 191 miles)

Before heading out this morning, a walk along the Halifax Waterfront is a must. Maybe a fabled donair for lunch, after all, it is the official food for Halifax. A city filled with an interesting history, a gateway into Canada for over one million immigrants.

The group will head out to the destination of Port Hawkesbury, a town located on the south-western end of Cape Breton Island, on the north shore of the strait of Canso. It boasts a unique blend of both economic, cultural, and lifestyle opportunities to those living in the area.

Day 7 - Port Hawkesbury to North Shore (256 kilometers / 159 miles)

The Cabot Trail is considered on the world's most scenic destinations with stunning ocean vistas, old growth forests, prehistoric rocks scarred by glaciers, and the mysterious Cape Breton highlands. Lobster is a specialty in many restaurants along the Cabot Trail. These next three days will reward you with a possibility of the most scenic ride you will ever experience. This 186-mile route was future in USA Todays’ ten best reader’s choice for best motorcycle trip 2014. Need to say more!

Day 8 - North Shore

Today is a relaxing day where you can opt to take in many of the attractions that the Cabot Trail has to offer.

Day 9 - North Shore to Murry River (303 kilometers / 188 miles)

The spectacular coastal view, highland scenery, and warm Celtic Acadian hospitality continue on this Day 9. Experiencing these last three days will instill memories of the Cabot Trail you can share with others for years to come. Count how many times you say “WOW” to yourself.

Day 10 - Murry River to Charlottetown (236 kilometers / 147 miles)

After crossing the Northumberland Strait on a 75-minute ferry ride, it is easy to fall into Prince Edward Island's easy relaxed pace and see some of the most stunning beaches you will ever see, and of the island's signature red soil. The group will continue the journey on the “Points East Coastal Drive”.

This drive takes you past 34 beaches, six lighthouses, 24 harbors, more than 100 restaurants, 12 provincial parks, six scenic heritage roads, and a national park. Wow, will you be busy?

Day 11 - Charlottetown to Summerside (118 kilometers / 73 miles)

Charlottetown is home to a network of walking trials, waterside boardwalks, craft and specialty shops. As the group heads to the most north shore, the stops include Prince Edward Island National Park, Cavendish and Anne of Green Gables House, and Davenby Beach. This north cape coastal drive takes you through an area rich with ocean fresh delicacies. How about fresh fried oysters for lunch? The day ends in Summerside, Prince Edward Island. Another incredible day.

Day 12 - Summerside (260 kilometers / 164 miles)

Today is a relaxing day with a loop to the northwest shore and the take in the attractions of Summerside has to offer.

Day 13 - Summerside to Saint John (376 kilometers / 234 miles)

The final day of the tour takes you across the longest bridge crossing in the world. The Confederation Bridge spans 12.9 kilometers across the Northumberland Strait connecting Prince Edward Island to the mainland. It is a spectacle in itself. The group will take a swing by Shediac to view the world's largest lobster monument. Shediac is recognized all over the world as the Lobster Capital of the World. The group then wind its way back to the starting point of Saint John.
