Head east for an embrace of salt air and Maritime warmth. From a toe-tapping kitchen party to a sumptuous lobster supper, a wine tasting to a hint of Green Gables, arrive as a visitor and leave as a friend as you immerse yourself in down-home Atlantic goodness. Discover the east like a local from scenic seaside walks to sandy surf-side strolls, sampling sweet treats and shopping for local crafts along the way. Have lunch in the Scallop Capital, take breakfast at Peggy’s Cove and search for whales before opening the door to our tour highlight − an evening of foot-stomping fun, flying fiddles, traditional music, storytelling and the warmest of welcomes at a Cape Breton ceilidh kitchen party.
