Day 1-2 Toronto / Montreal

Drive along the St Lawrence Seaway to Montreal, the beautiful City of Festivals. En route you'll stop for a beautiful cruise of the Thousand Islands, a gorgeous garden of woods and waters that is sure to have you clicking away with your camera. In the evening, you'll set off to discover the vibrant nightlife of Montreal - don't expect you'll be wanting to get to bed any time soon. On Day 2, ignore the hangover and get out and about to see all the city sights - with Mount Royal, which acts as a natural landmark for Montreal, the historic Old City, and its many boutiques, cathedrals and cafes, you'll have plenty to keep you occupied!

Day 3 Riviere du Loup

Continue eastward to the southern shore of the St Lawrence and spend the night in the Riviere du Loup. Drive past spectacular vistas and charming French towns, keep an eye out for seals and other adorable marine animals that call the St Lawrence River home.

Day 4 Moncton

Cross from Quebec into New Brunswick to take in all the beautiful landscapes, vibrant cities and towns, and stunning rivers and coasts. Travel along the world's longest covered bridge and Magnetic Hill - this natural phenomenon has been causing vehicles to roll uphill since the early 1800's!

Day 5-6 Digby

In the morning, make your way towards the world famous Bay of Fundy, travelling through the Annapolis Valley and visiting a winery en route. One of Canada's greatest natural wonders the Bay of Fundy is one of the world's most dynamic tidal coastlines - with national parks, UNESCO sites, outstanding parks and provincial museums, it's not only the incredible views that will catch your eye. Spend a night in the beautiful east coast town of Digby which overlooks the picturesque Annapolis Basin. On Day 6, spend the day discovering this spectacular region, including Digby Neck, a haven for whale and seabird watchers, and even experience a delicious clam dig on the beach!

Day 7-9 Halifax

The tour moves onwards towards Halifax, the capital of Nova Scotia. En route stop off at Kejimkujik Park, which is both a national park and a national historic site and home to the world famous Bluenose II sailing ship, Lunenburg. You'll barely notice all the miles you're clocking up on the road and will be in Halifax for an overnight stay in no time.

Day 10-12 Cape Breton Highlands / Cape Breton National Park

Today is all about taking advantage of the amazing natural landscapes surrounding you. Make your way to the Cape Breton Highlands, home to Canada's rich Scottish heritage. Cameras at the ready everyone - there will be plenty of photo opportunities, especially on your hike to see if you can catch a glimpse of some native moose. On Day 11, you'll head out on a whale watching tour to see the majestic animals in their natural habitat and you'll take an easy hike up the Skyline Ridge - the views are something like you've never seen. The next day continue traipsing around the Cape Breton region and go for a swim at the beach. There's plenty of time to relax and take in all the views!

Day 13-14 Charlottetown / Prince Edward Island

Today it's off to Prince Edward Island, Canada's smallest province, via a beautiful drive and ferry ride. In the evening go out and see what the city of Charlottetown has to offer - from shopping to world class theatre, not to mention the delicious food, you're bound to fall in love with the area! The next day take a trip to Cavendish Beach, surrounded by red sandstone cliffs and sandy dunes, for a swim in the crystal blue waters warmed by the Gulf stream.

Day 15-17 Moncton / Quebec City

Travel back into New Brunswick across the Confederation Bridge. Take a lobster boat cruise (complete with a fresh lobster dinner!) as well as a tour of Hopewell Rocks, a stunning area in the Bay of Fundy! Good food and good fun - there really isn't anything better. On Day 16, it's a long drive to Quebec City, but it's worth the journey, especially with some delicious French fare waiting for you in the evening. The next day, city the city during daylight, wandering the narrow walkways, cobblestone streets, boutiques, museums and cafes - save some room for some tasty poutine or crepes that the city is so famous for! In the evening, head to a local bar for some live music and a few drinks (or three).

Day 18-19 Ottawa

Journey into the countryside and make a quick detour to visit the fantastic Montmorency Falls (actually 1.5 times higher than Niagara!) just outside the city. It's then off to Canada's capital of Ottawa for some people watching in chic cafés, wandering around museums or cycling by the Rideau Canal.

Day 20 Toronto

The views on the way back to Toronto will help distract you from the fact this is your last day. Arrive into the city at 6pm and put your party hat on - it's time for a wrap up dinner and party on the patio of Global Village Backpackers! There are worse ways to end a trip. While this tour does not include accommodation, it can be arranged for a supplement.
