Canada’s quieter corner draws you in with its natural beauty and catch-of-the-day dishes.

A quartet of provinces face out across the vast Northern Atlantic, closer to home than the town of Tofino over on the edge of British Columbia. Life here revolves around the ocean: its huge tides and wildlife, its towering icebergs and its power to shape the land. Atlantic Canada offers a little bit of everything accompanied by true Celtic charm. Whether it’s historic cities that draw you in, or coastal fishing villages, there is something to charm everyone. With its rural parklands, beautiful driving and walking trails, a rugged coastline with beaches, coves, bays and the most photographed lighthouse in Canada, it fulfils even the simplest of pleasures.
