Nova Scotia

Known for its rugged coast and distinct marine culture, the Atlantic Provinces are a pleasure to visit. Nova Scotia is one of a cluster of provinces that edge the east coast of Canada, forming an expansive coastline with the Atlantic.

Nova Scotia, sitting to the south of New Brunswick has an extensive coastline circling 4,600 miles, creating a distinct maritime experience of craggy cliffs, beautiful beaches and quaint fishing villages. Latin for New Scotland, Nova Scotia has a Celtic heritage obvious in the names of its towns, parks and bays and is famous for its part in Canada’s heritage and the local seafood delicacies of Atlantic salmon, Digby Scallops, shrimp, shark, and tuna.

The most photographed fishing village in Canada, the barren and rugged Peggy’s Cove is famed by its landmark lighthouse and fabulous scenery and sits just 40 minutes from Halifax.

Often the gateway to the southern Atlantic Provinces, Halifax is a multi cultural port city with a myriad of attractions including the historic Citadel, the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic and bustling Pier 21.


Also close by, Lunenburg is dedicated to preserving its rich heritage. Established in 1753, its century old buildings and name as a town of master ship builders attracts visitors from around the world. No visit to Nova Scotia is complete without experiencing Cape Breton Island, a blend of Scottish, Native and Acadian communities and a place of exquisite beauty.

Follow the world famous 187 mile Cabot Trail twisting between the Gulf of the St Lawrence and the Atlantic Ocean or explore the wilderness setting of Cape Breton Highlands National Park filled with wildlife and historic sites dating back to the ice ages.
