Whatever it is, the Maritime provinces are home of some of the most scenic routes you can imagine. Whether on the open highway or the road less travelled, we were made for road trips. Travel along coastal routes, forested drives, rolling farmlands, or vibrant cityscapes. After all, it’s not just about the destination. We’re all about the journey, too.
