Never mind the last remnants of snow and salt, the Canada Geese are venturing back and spring has officially sprung. Even more exciting is that this summer is shaping up to be the perfect time to visit Canada, as our country gets set to celebrate 150 big ones!

That’s right, Canada’s 150th anniversary is on top of everyone’s mind and I would love to celebrate it with you. I’m looking for a few more of you to join CAA’s Solo Traveller Club’s Naturally Newfoundland tour. Our beloved country is a must-see and this is definitely the year to do it.

Never travelled alone before? With the Solo Traveller Club, you can feel free to travel “solo, but never alone!” That’s because I’ll be with you, every step of the way, as well as our great group of like-minded and adventurous solo travellers. From Deer Lake, to Labrador, through Gros Morne National Park and finishing in St John’s, our exciting departure has much in store. Newfoundland certainly boasts spectacular scenery and history, but its people are second to none: welcoming, proud and witty to the core, they will remain in your hearts forever. But space is limited, so reserve yourself a spot now – before it’s too late!

Looking for a unique summer selfie opportunity? As you make your way to the beaches of Shediac, be sure to stop and see the giant lobster! This unique sculpture is nestled in Rotary Park, a beautiful park setting sure to be fun for everyone.

Nova Scotia

Check out Nova Scotia’s finest…wine, that is! The Annapolis Valley is one of Canada’s newest and up and coming wine regions. Whether you want to pick up a bottle or two to take home or simply sip a glass while enjoying the local seafood, it’s a must-try.


Hit the beach! With more than 90 spectacular beaches tucked into a mere 5,660 square kilometres of coastline, you have your pick of beaches on this island. Consider taking a bike ride. The flat, easy, paved Gulfshore Parkway parallels the beach and you’ll find bike rentals all across the island.
