FHPW Travel

Each year Federation members are invited to join other members on a trip. FHPW Travel Director Kay King organizes fantastic trips to various places around the world.

Nova Scotia – June 28 – July 7, 2017

For 2017 Kay is planning a late June trip to Nova Scotia (note date changes) which also offers an optional 2-day trip to Montreal, Canada!  There will be room for 40 travelers.  Highlights of this trip include visiting Halifax along with Moncton, Charlottetown and Baddeck.  Along the way you’ll experience scenic drives, visit beautiful national parks and quaint fishing villages and enjoy special adventures arranged by Globus.


Tour highlights include a visit to Peggy’s Cove, a charming fishing village with the picturesque lighthouse (one of the world’s most photographed places), and Lunenburg, a small port town and UNESCO World Heritage Site.  Learn about the highest and wildest tides at Hopewell Rocks, where time and tides (up to 50 fee) have created distinctive sandstone formations topped with trees. On Cape Breton Island, keep your camera ready as you embark on the Cabot Trail, one of the most scenic drives in the world, and visit Cape Breton Highlands National Park, resembling the Scottish coastal regions. More scenic beauty awaits you in Prince Edward Island National Park, famous for its wind-sculpted dunes and sandy beaches. Also enjoy a ferry ride across the Northumberland Strait.


All the exciting details can be found in this brochure.  If you need more info or have questions contact Travel Coordinator Kay King!
