REMOTE COASTAL SPLENDOR

Join us for the trip of a lifetime to Nova Scotia which in Jacobean Latin means “New Scotland.” The unspoiled beauty of Cape Breton Island resembles the highland country of Scotland. Travel along one of the most beautiful drives in the world - The Cabot Trail – to view the dramatic coastline where the mountains meet the sea. Nova Scotia is a rich blend of Scottish, English, Irish and Acadian traditions. It is the Land of Evangeline, made famous by Longfellow’s poem. Craggy shorelines, authentic fishing villages, expansive apple orchards, historic forts, placid lakes, charming Lunenburg, Peggy’s Cove Lighthouse and bustling Halifax – this is Nova Scotia and so much more!

American Classic Tours is based out of Chicago. Because many of our travelers are from the greater Chicagoland Area, all of our tours begin at one of Chicago’s airports. If you are from out of state or country, you can join us via a “land-only” tour package. A “land-only” tour is the exact same as our “all-inclusive” tour except it does not include airfare. Your tour director will meet you at your destination airport and lead you to meet the rest of the group on the first day of the tour.
