11 Days | 10 Nights
ACTIVITY LEVEL: Moderate
EasyFor people looking to exercise their minds more than their bodies. There’s minimal walking and not too many stairs.
ModerateThese programs get you on your feet and include activities such as walking up to a mile in a day through a city and standing in a museum for a few hours.
ActiveFor people who enjoy walking as much as two miles a day, perhaps to explore historic neighborhoods or a nature trail.
Moderately ChallengingFor hardy explorers who enjoy a good physical challenge, spending most of their days on the go.
ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding — and rewarding — programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.
Take the road less traveled up New Brunswick’s Acadian Coast on this fascinating adventure, learning how two tales of colonialism collided in the struggle between the British and the Acadians of New France for control of a New World outpost. Discover rich Acadian heritage, visit pivotal sites and meet the hearty, time-tested people of this unique corner of Canada.


Highlights

• View St. Croix Island, where French settlement of North America began, and Fort Beauséjour near Moncton, which tells the story of France and Britain’s long war for supremacy over Acadia.
• Experience the joie de vivre of Acadian life through music at Le Pays De La Sagouine, and attend an Acadian kitchen party at a local home in Caraquet, which provides a glimpse into the culture of the Acadian family.
• In Fredericton, the provincial capital, join experts in the Historic Garrison District, Government House and other sites that illuminate the city’s British history.
