Slideshow: Ultimate Leaf Peeping

cruise-leaf-peeping-canada-new-england The ports of New England and Atlantic Canada are at their most beautiful in the fall, when the shoreline's uninterrupted backdrop of forested mountains bursts into the glowing oranges, reds, and yellows of autumn.

Enjoying the Northeast's fall palette from afar as you cruise off the coast is a given, but serious leaf-peepers will also want to get up close and personal with the foliage fireworks at each port of call.

Here are our suggestions for the best autumnal action at the major stops on Canada/New England cruises. We highlight two activities in each port: a selection from popular ships' shore excursions and a do-it-yourself option for independent travelers who want to explore on their own or book something more offbeat.
