2010/2016 | Trinity | 5 Staterooms | Charter from $195,000
This summer we invite you to pick a more remote holiday destination and discover in excess of 4,300 miles of unspoiled seacoast – home to whales, incredible seafood, rich cultural heritage and that Canadian icon, the moose aboard charter yacht ASPEN ALTERNATIVE in Nova Scotia & Newfoundland.
One of the four corners of the world, this area is heavily influenced by the sea and its maritime heritage. Rugged and wild – it teems with incredible wildlife, stunning natural landscapes, and picturesque fishing towns. It truly is one of the best places to see and appreciate nature in all its glory. While the living landscape is its own wonder, its inhabitants give the area a distinct character unlike you’ll find anywhere else. Living out on the edge of North America, isolated from much of the world, has created a culture that respects its history with the influences of English, Irish, French, and Indigenous ancestors. As a result, it has infused the area with a warm jovial character where the locals are known for their creativity, unique language, storytelling abilites, and of course food.
The adventures here are boundless. Depending on where your ASPEN ALTERNATIVE Nova Scotia yacht charter begins, below are some areas we think are a must see.
