Holidays to Nova Scotia

On the coastline of Eastern Canada, Nova Scotia is small – you can drive end-to-end in eight hours – but stunning. Beautiful, scenic and picturesque you’ll find ruggedly wild landscapes that give way to gentle rolling farmland the further you go inland. Jutting into the Atlantic Ocean there’s plenty to keep you busy beside (or on) the sea with 160 lighthouses, whale watching trips and the highest recorded tides in the world in the Bay of Fundy. But there’s so much more to discover from its five UNESCO World Heritage Sites – be sure to stop at Lunenburg with its colourful 18th and 19th century buildings – to a truly diverse cultural make-up that sees Gaelic signs alongside German sausages and Arcadian flags belonging to the descendants of French settlers. Want to discover all this and more? Our Canada Travel Specialists are here to help plan your holiday to Nova Scotia.

Travel Tips & Advice for Nova Scotia

Nova Scotia Activities

Throw yourself into outdoor adventures on Nova Scotia. Take to the waters of the Atlantic Ocean as you spot humpback whales in the Bay of Fundy (best times are between June – September) or on a thrilling tidal bore rafting experience, riding the waves. Hike one of the 26 trails in Cape Breton Highlands National Park including the popular Skyline Trail or camp within the Kejimkujik National Park and star gaze – the area is a designated Dark Sky Preserve.

Nova Scotia Food & Drink

Food on Nova Scotia is fresh, fresh, fresh with seafood fished straight from the Atlantic Ocean – lobster served any imaginable way is one of the province’s most popular dishes and you can get hands-on and dig for clams! Farmer’s markets are packed full of local produce from water buffalo mozzarella to plums, peaches and apples. Grapes have been cultivated in the Annapolis Valley since the 1600s and the Good Cheer Trail sees you taste wine, beer, cider and spirits across the province.

Nova Scotia Attractions

Arrive into Halifax and you’ll soon discover the pretty waterfront – the place for strolling, drinking and dining in the provincial capital. Be sure to snap your picture of Peggy’s Point Lighthouse, constructed in 1915 and the most photographed beacon in Nova Scotia or be amazed by the fossilised trees and preserved footsteps of pre-dinosaur species at Joggins Fossil Cliffs. And music lovers can listen to jazz, folk and international artists during one of the summer music festivals.
