Nova Scotia is an exquisite maritime province surrounded by over 3,800 coastal islands. It is Canada’s second-smallest province and can be characterized as a kind-hearted family-oriented community. It is known for its rolling green hills, high sea cliffs perched over beautiful beaches, and quaint waterfront cities.
The province has a variety of leisure activities to take part in, such as hiking a variety of terrains and trails, most notably the Skyline Trail, Bay of Fundy tidal bore rafting, whale watching in Cape Breton or road tripping down the winding roads of the Cabot Trail. There are also plenty of historic sites to visit, such as Louisbourg National Historic Site, Grand Pre National Historic Site (One of Nova Scotia’s UNESCO World Heritage Sites) and Memory Lane Heritage Village. A memorable excursion to consider would be to visit Burntcoat Head Park during low tide for a chance to walk on the ocean floor. For foodies and wine enthusiasts, there are a number of local farmers markets, vineyards, breweries and distilleries producing a selection of local craft liquor. Must visit distilleries include Ironworks and Glenora Inn, which produces the only malt whisky in Canada. Life in Nova Scotia has something to offer everyone.
The Cabot Trail is Nova Scotia’s gem, a 297km trail that twists and turns as it traverses the coastal mountains of Cape Breton Highlands National Park. With its magnificent ocean views, it is simply a must for the adventurous. Nova Scotia is also home to 3 UNESCO World Heritage Sites, namely Joggins Fossil Cliffs, The Landscape of Grand Pre and Lunenburg.
Joggins Fossil Cliffs is situated on the Bay of Fundy, where visitors can observe over 15 kilometres of the world’s most complete fossil record of life in the “Coal Age”. The Landscape of Grand Pre is a 13 km expanse of dykelands, fields and settlements on the hills. It is also located on Fundy Bay, and can be best appreciated from the View Park on Old Post Road. Old Town Lunenburg is one of only two urban communities in North America designated as a UNESCO World Heritage site.
Discover Nova Scotia’s maritime heritage by visiting a number of ships moored off the port. The Annapolis Valley is a fantastic destination to slow things down and unwind while sampling some of the region’s finest wines or take in the stunning views of Grand Pre. South Shore is Nova Scotia’s most visited coastline, boasting the provinces most archetypal lighthouse, lush forest coves and white sandy beaches. With all this and more, who could resist the small time charm and beauty of Nova Scotia?
