The history and culture of Nova Scotia are very much connected to the sea. You can hike along miles of natural shoreline, go ocean kayaking or whale watching.
The city of Halifax awaits you. Visit the historic Citadel, or take a trip to the famous Peggy’s Cove. Nearby is Lunenburg where the architecture has made it a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
In the northeast corner of the province is the Cabot Trail which leads you through Acadian villages to the Cape Breton Highlands.
Another trail is the Evangeline Trail which takes you from Yarmouth on the southwest tip of the province, along the coast of the Bay of Fundy, through the sunny Annapolis Valley to the suburbs of Halifax. Nova Scotia’s greatest asset though, is her friendly people who will proudly welcome you to their magnificent province.
Nova Scotia also boasts pristine inland wilderness with hundreds of lakes and many beautiful rivers. The province is home to a UNESCO World Biosphere Preserve that includes both Kejimikujik National Park and the Tobeatic Wilderness to form the largest protected area in all of Atlantic Canada.
Numerous lighthouses are located along Nova Scotia’s rugged shoreline and a must journey if you enjoy lighthouses. The most famous and most photographed lighthouse is located at Peggy’s Cove.
