You can take in the view, shop for one-of-a-kind crafts, hike, golf on some of Canada’s best courses, go on a whale watching adventure or simply indulge your taste for freshly caught lobster.

With no time constraints, enjoy the freedom to stop anywhere and take your time exploring. Tour guide commentary will play automatically as you drive, using an easy to navigate live GPS map. No data is used during the tour.
