Enjoy maritime history in Atlantic Canada

Home to North America's first European settlement, Atlantic Canada is a land of rugged scenery, fascinating history and lauded cuisine.

Few places in the world can rival Canada for its jaw-dropping scenery. The country seems to have it all; awe-inspiring icebergs, wildlife-filled parks, sandy beaches, soaring mountains, shimmering lakes, verdant forests – the list goes on.

Atlantic Canada manages to cram all that and more into four picturesque provinces – New Brunswick, Newfoundland & Labrador, Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island – which are a joy for anyone inclined towards exploring the great outdoors.

Tropical Sky Canada the maritime quarter in Halifax

Discover the tantalising maritime past of Halifax in Nova Scotia, Canada.

What sets this corner of Canada apart from the rest of the country is its rich maritime history. This is where the first Europeans are thought to have set foot in North America; it is where some of the victims of the Titanic disaster rest; and it is where Al Capone made a name for himself running rum during Prohibition.

This rich history is brought to life in characterful towns such as Lunenburg, a UNESCO World Heritage site, renowned for its unique colourful buildings. These properties are distinct because they feature a Widow’s Walk; a lookout point where worried fishermen’s wives would wait for their husbands’ boats to return from sea – or not, as was sometimes the case.

Atlantic Canada’s relationship with the ocean has also impacted the local cuisine, with oysters, scallops, lobsters and mussels regularly topping menus.

Experience the diversity of Ontario

A land of shimmering lakes, vibrant cities and French connections, Ontario brims with urban swagger and bucolic bliss. It’s easy to see why this province pulls in the crowds.

Crashing with devastating brilliance on the border of Ontario and New York, Niagara Falls is a place where you can’t help but contemplate the awesome power of Mother Nature. What a privilege it is to listen to the thunderous roar of cascading water, while watching the quiet brilliance of rainbows forming in the mist. It’s little wonder, then, that Niagara Falls is one of the main attractions in this picturesque province, which isn’t short of natural beauty. Stretching from the Great Lakes to Hudson Bay, Ontario is packed with awe-inspiring parks, pristine forests and island-speckled waterways.

Tropical Sky Canada visitors in Ontario

Toasting marshmallows next to Peninsula Lake at Deerhurst Resort, Ontario.

These open spaces serve up some quintessentially Canadian experiences, including ice fishing, canoeing and wilderness hiking – not to mention unique encounters with moose, wolves and myriad other species. For all its rural charm, though, Ontario is also adorned with plenty of urban sophistication. It is, after all, home to the Canadian capital, Ottawa, yet it is Toronto that remains the jewel in Ontario’s crown. Officially the largest city in Canada, this multicultural metropolis has a verve and vitality befitting of a capital. Throw in a dynamic dining scene, energetic night life and lively neighbourhoods, and it’s easy to see why Toronto is one of the world’s most admired cities.

Cruise the epic Alaskan wilderness

From glaciers and icebergs to forests and waterfalls, a view from the water will show you all the breathtaking contradictions of America’s 49th state.

Few places on Earth evoke such a feeling of space as Alaska, known as America’s last frontier state. Over thousands of years it has drawn people in with its rich resources like fur and gold, but more recently with its vast landscapes, and suitably oversized wildlife to match. With its forests, waterfalls, mountainous glaciers and towering icebergs, it takes sightseeing to a new level.

Tropical Sky Canada whale watching in Alaska

Go whale-watching in Alaska, America’s breathtaking 49th state.

From much more comfortable lodgings than the first American explorers had to endure, modern visitors can cruise in to experience the local wildlife, go whale-watching and visit Ketchikan, the ‘salmon capital of the world’. While you’re there, take an exciting seaplane excursion over the magical Misty Fjords National Monument, set in 2.2 million acres of pristine wilderness. It’s also home to the Tlingit Indians: visitors can admire their collection of totem poles – the largest in the world – and observe carvers carrying on this tradition.

For those who want to embrace the great outdoors there is no better place: Alaska is prime country for fishing, trekking and even zip-lining over the landscape.

To immerse yourself in the 49th state’s frontier history, visit the picturesque capital city of Juneau, which witnessed Alaska’s first major gold-strike, and have a go at panning to see if you strike gold.
