Imagine the perfect road trip, just six hours away from the UK. Picture stunning coastal drives, picturesque lighthouses, dramatic cliffs, rocky inlets and quaint, colourful towns. Spend your days exploring on foot, hiking the trails, or navigating the ocean waves by kayak.

One lucky winner and a friend will be able to experience it all. This adventure will take them to the provinces of New Brunswick, Newfoundland and Labrador, Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island. Each province has its own individual character; all are renowned for their outstanding natural beauty, the freshest seafood, UNESCO World Heritage sites and National Parks.

Commencing in scenic Nova Scotia, this special trip promises a varied itinerary with highlights from each province.

You’ll discover the bustling port of Halifax, known for its festivals and friendliness. Step back in time to learn about the unique, colourful architecture in historic Lunenburg. A paradise for nature lovers, take a trip in the Bay of Fundy to see the mighty whales and explore the traditional canoe routes of the Mi'kmaw at Kejimkujik National Park. Enjoy the spectacular scenery as you tour the Cabot Trail on Cape Breton Island.

In New Brunswick, feel the unique privilege of walking on the ocean floor after the world’s highest tides have retreated from the Bay of Fundy. Step back in time and relax at the postcard-perfect, seaside resort of St. Andrew’s before enjoying dinner at the Rossmount Inn. For the brave, take an exhilarating jet boat ride on Saint John’s reversing falls, but prepare for a soaking!

Crossing the Confederation Bridge you will arrive in green and fertile Prince Edward Island. Home to Anne of Green Gables, the Island is captivating with stunning sandy beaches, rolling hills and jutting red cliffs. Why not take to two wheels to discover the lanes and boardwalks, working up an appetite for a lobster supper?

Finally the winners will head to Newfoundland and Labrador, camera at the ready to capture the dramatic and beautiful landscape of tablelands, fjords, cliffs and protected coves, which make up Gros Morne National Park. From Twillingate, join a once-in-a-lifetime trip, searching for icebergs and whales.
