Greetings, educators!

Canada is the second-largest country on earth as well as the home of some truly awe-inspiring sights. From Coast to Coast, it's a land of diversity in terms of landscapes, cultures, and histories.

Today, we are diving into the Eastern part of the country. Welcome to Atlantic Canada, a welcoming region that distinguishes itself by its unique coastal culture, similar to the one you would find in Western Europe.

Here comes a foretaste below. While they provide insightful inspiration, every EWT tour remains completely customized so that your students get the most of their hands-on learning experience in the field of your choice.

Happy reading!

  The Maritimes


Made of New Brunswick, Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island, the Maritimes represent a unique opportunity for groups to explore a diverse array of sights, activities and landscapes all in one trip. Explore multiple historic sites and towns in one of the oldest parts of Canada – where early European settlers landed and Vikings arrived in the 10th century – all while enjoying its sheer natural splendour.

In NEW BRUNSWICK, a worthy cultural destination, discover The Reversing Falls Rapids, Grand Pre-National Historic Site, and Annapolis Royal in St John; The Hopewell Rock and Garrison Night Market in Fredericton; and The Magnetic Hill Zoo or Centennial Park in Moncton, the largest city in the province and nicknamed "the Hub City".

From world-class museums to picturesque architecture and gorgeous surrounding nature, Halifax, in NOVA SCOTIA, has everything to please.

There, students will learn of early settlers, Canada's World War II involvement and the fateful journey of the Titanic in educational centres such as the museum of Canadian Immigration – the only national museum in Atlantic Canada! – and the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic.

Overlooking the city, the Citadel National Historic Park is also a historically important sight that will add great value to your next itinerary.

In PRINCE EDWARD ISLAND, the charming capital Charlottetown offers a small-town vibe and low-key atmosphere. Possible activities there are varied: take a tour of the Province House National Historic Site; stroll along streets from the Victorian era or the fishing village of North Rustico; and take a breath of fresh air at Prince Edward Island National Park. In summer, the capital also hosts the annual Charlottetown Festival, a highlight putting on free concerts, art exhibitions, and theater productions.


  Newfoundland & Labrador


Introduce your students to the newest Canadian province, part of the confederation since 1949. Its heritage was highly influenced by the Indigenous culture as well as the visits of English, Irish and French fishermen from the 1500s. In fact, the province was under British rule until 1949 and is geographically located closer to the Irish coast than to Winnipeg!

Extending over more than 25,000 kilometers of pristine coastline, the province boasts impressive natural sites with a European touch like nowhere else in Canada. The collision of tectonic plates that formed most of Newfoundland makes its geology a riveting phenomenon to teach students.

Let your students experience this rich culture through guided tours narrating local stories and tales; the discovery of preserved artifacts; and traditional activities such as a fishing boat tour.

Begin in St John's, the province's colorful and lively capital. It is home to the old Cape Spear Lighthouse, the popular landmark Signal Hill – which protected the city from the 17th to World War II – and Quidi Vidi, a charming fishing village.

In Trinity, take a "New Foundland Trinity Pageant" walking tour with actors from The Rise Tide Theatre taking history to life.

On your way to Rocky Harbour via Twillingate – a historic fishing community – stop at the breath-taking Gros Morne National Park, and take part in a workshop for your students to learn about local culture and history interactively. You will end your tour in Corner Brook, the second-largest city in the province.
