Nova Scotia, Canada Plan a trip

Explore wild, untamed Canada and the lure of the sea in stunning Nova Scotia.

This maritime province is thrillingly wild and breathtakingly beautiful. Surrounded almost entirely by water, Nova Scotia has over 100 beaches and endless miles of rugged coastline.

In winter, Nova Scotia is known for its awe-inspiring scenery and dramatic weather. But in summer, a transformation takes place. Visitors can tuck into delicious fresh lobster suppers, sunbathe on the beach and hit the trails for hiking adventures. You may even stumble upon a local ceilidh party, where friendly Nova Scotians will welcome you (and rope you into dancing) with open arms.

Start your Nova Scotia experience in Halifax, strolling along the vibrant waterfront and indulging in some people watching at the bustling harbour. Or why not hop in the car and head for the Cabot Trail? It’s one of the world’s most scenic drives, boasting incredible coastal views and the chance to discover charming towns and natural beauty spots along the way.

The province is also a fantastic destination for cycling, where you can drink in invigorating lungfuls of clean salt air as you explore its tiny fishing villages.

There are so many unique and wonderful places to discover here in Nova Scotia, from the picturesque lighthouse at Peggy’s Cove to the UNESCO-listed old town of Lunenburg.

You can go wine tasting in the Annapolis Valley vineyards, or tackle a hike in the beautiful lakes and forests of Kejimkujik National Park. Go whale spotting in the Bay of Fundy, home to 12 species of whales and the world’s highest tides.

It’s your adventure – so it’s completely up to you.
