One of the oldest parts of Canada is the Maritime provinces as it is where not only early European settlers landed but where the Vikings arrived in the 10th century. These provinces are small in size, but great in history and sheer natural beauty. One of the benefits of their small land mass and close geographic location is that multiple destinations can be combined to create a true Maritime experience. Among these beautiful provinces are some fascinating cities such as Halifax known for its picturesque architecture and incredible music scene. In Halifax students can learn of early settlers, Canada's World War II involvement and the fateful journey of the Titanic. Another Maritime destination that is sure to interest students is L'Anse Aux Meadow in Newfoundland where the Vikings first settled in North America. Now a UNESCO heritage site there are remains of the settlement and a reconstruction so that students can feel that they have entered the time of Erik the Red over 1000 years ago. These are just two of the spectacular destinations in Canada's most eastern province which is home to, Charlottetown, Fredericton and St John's as well. Regardless of territory students are sure to enjoy any destination in the Maritimes.
