New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, Newfoundland, Labrador

Landscape And Wildlife In Atlantic Provinces Canada

The landscape of the Atlantic Provinces Canada practically seduces a visitor into roaming, stopping in little fishing ports where cod and lobster are plentiful.

Destinations include the national parks of Kouchibouguac and Fundy and the Fundy Trail Parkway in New Brunswick. In the Bay of Fundy, right whales, terns, and puffins can be sighted during the summer. In Nova Scotia, Kejimku­jik National Park and the cities of Halifax and Sydney (17th-century fortress) give this region a special cachet. And Prince Edward Island, setting of the children’s book Anne of Green Gables, offers clean beaches and acres of lush farmland.

In New Brunswick and Nova Scotia, Indian summer goes full blast, as maple and red spruce mix their colors with those of balsam fir and yellow birch in the large forests along the St.-Jean River.

The northeast coast of Labrador is known for its fjords, cliffs, water­falls, and marine wildlife. In the summer, cruise ships line up along its length.

Newfoundland’s tundra, peat bogs, and Gros Morne National Park do not draw great crowds, but its fishing boats still go after cod and herring as they have ever since the first French sertlers arrived here in the 16th century.

Advice

Pros

Like a breath of fresh air, the largely unspoiled Canadian coun­tryside presents a nature lover’s escape. A country that is frequently visited by tour groups but can easily be explored on one’s own.

Cons

The west and the Rockies are more expensive than Quebec.

Recommendation

On the Indian reservations, don’t confuse folklore with the realities of life.

Special Tip

Train travel may be old hat to some people, but the Toronto to­ Vancouver train the Canadian), traveling for three days and two nights to the west coast, lets you see the breadth of the country. Other routes are also worthwhile, such as Jasper to Prince Rupert in the Rockies or Winnipeg to Churchill, where with luck passen­gers can watch polar bears from the safety of the train.
