Spectacular coasts meet Acadian culture

Nova Scotia tailor-made holidays

Introduction

Your Nova Scotia travel experience will combine the area's history with its beautiful scenery. Cabot Trail demonstrates this with a reputation as one of the most scenic coastal drives in North America. Explore the Gaelic heritage, national park and valleys of the Acadian forest on Cape Breton Island.

Learn more about the Anglo-French hostilities at the Fortress of Louisbourg and Halifax Citadel National Historic Sites. Or visit Province House where the Fathers of Confederation met about the formation of Canada.

Explore the South Shore along the Lighthouse Route and stop off for pictures of the famous lighthouse at Peggy's Cove. Enjoy visiting the picturesque fishing villages en route and admire the colourful 18th and 19th century buildings at the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Lunenburg.

And don't forget to leave some time to relax on the number of beaches dotted around the province, and perhaps enjoy the excellent surfing opportunities along the Eastern Shore. Look out to the changing tides of the Bay of Fundy or discover the farm and vineyards of the nearby Annapolis Valley.
