Maritime Itinerary - 10 days

Jump to last reply

My husband and I have started to plan our trip to the Maritimes somewhere around early July. We will be mainly focusing on Nova Scotia with 1-2 days in PEI and are considering New Brunswick if we have time.

Here's our very very rough itinerary/plan. We are slightly flexible (we may be able to add a day or 2 if absolutely necessary). I'm getting overwhelmed at all of this planning. We are the type of people who like to cram as much as we can see into one day (but forcefully try to stop and smell the flowers). If there's anything ridiculous about this itinerary or if there is a MUST see place I am missing, please let me know? We would like to see Hopewell Rocks and the Advocate Harbour areas, but I fear it's too much driving and would take too much time. I would appreciate any help advice I can get. We love great food, spotting wild/sea life, and beautiful scenery. Could care less about history/museums/galleries, etc.

Day 1 Arrive in Halifax (evening)
Day 2 Halifax (explore) -Spring Garden Rd. for shopping
Day 3 Halifax to Liverpool (drive down exploring Chester, Mahone Bay, Lunenburg) to Digby (3:45 driving)
Day 4 Digby (whale watching, beaches) - Annapolis Valley for Scallops - if time, drive to Caribou (3:36).
Day 5 Digby to Caribou (3:36), Ferry to PEI (explore Charlottetown)
Day 6 PEI - Explore PEI National Park, take ferry back to Caribou (evening)
Day 7 Caribou to Baddeck (2:19). Explore Baddeck (Bras d'Or Lakes, Alexander Graham Bell, Gift Shops) - decide about fortress.
Day 8 ½ Cabot Trail (2:00) - find a puffin/whale/seal tour and a hotel for stop half way through Cabot Trail)
Day 9 Finish Cabot Trail (2:00) - drive back to Halifax (3:37)
Day 10 Depart from Halifax (morning)
