The four provinces of Atlantic Canada – Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Newfoundland and Labrador, and Prince Edward Island – are the closest to Europe, yet surprisingly not on the typical tourist radar from the UK.
So Ellen Coughlan sets off on a brand new adventure to discover some of the amazing, places, people, culture and activities that this diverse land has to offer.
Its Ellen’s first ever visit to Canada, but she wastes no time getting stuck in. She travels back 150 years to the birth of Canada in Prince Edward Island, and delves into the literary world of Anne of Green Gables. In Nova Scotia the magnificent landscapes provide the stunning backdrop to a serene kayak trip, although the waters are far from calm when Ellen tries tidal bore rafting!
There are heart-breaking artefacts from the Titanic in the Museum of the North Atlantic, before a trip out into the ocean from Newfoundland and Labrador in search of icebergs. Her journey ends in New Brunswick, with some enthralling encounters with wild black bears, and a close call with a very large lobster!
