Located on the eastern coast of Canada, Nova Scotia is a mostly rural province, but it is also home of miles upon miles of beautiful, sandy coast and many lakes and rivers

Nova Scotia

Amongst Nova Scotia's most popular destinations you will find Halifax, the provincial capital city.

 

Halifax, claims to have the second-largest natural harbour in the world, after Sydney in Australia. And, amongst its highlights you will find the Historic Properties, a redeveloped waterfront area of shops and restaurants; Province House, the birthplace of Canadian democracy in 1819; St Paul's, Canada's oldest Protestant church; the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic, featuring Titanic exhibits; Pier 21, an excellent museum of immigration; and the Halifax Public Gardens.

 

Amongst Nova Scotia's most popular destinations you will also find Lunenburg, a settlement that was established in 1753 and is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The town's beautiful waterfront speaks of a rich history of fishing, shipbuilding and other maritime activities.

 

But throughout Nova Scotia you will also find 3 national parks: Cape Breton Highlands National Park, Kejimkujik National Park and National Historic Site, and Sable Island National Park.

 

Cape Breton Highlands National Park is known for its spectacular highlands and ocean scenery. Steep cliffs and deep river canyons carve into a forested plateau bordering the Atlantic Ocean. One third of the Cabot Trail, a world-famous scenic highway, runs through the national park along the coasts and over the highlands.

 

Kejimkujik National Park and National Historic Site is the only Parks Canada site which is designated both a National Park and a National Historic Site. Discover historic canoe routes, experience Mi’kmaw petroglyphs, and swim in the warm waters of Kejimkujik Lake. Don’t forget about Kejimkujik Seaside. Turquoise waters, white sand and seals basking on nearby rocks will captivate you.

 

Isolated and remote, Sable Island National Park is one of Canada’s furthest offshore islands. Shifting sand dunes, among Eastern Canada’s largest, dominate the landscape. The famous Sable Island wild horses roam freely, and the world’s biggest breeding colony of grey seals uses its extensive beaches. Freshwater ponds hint at the life-sustaining freshwater lens floating below the island. Plants, birds, and insects have adapted to life on Sable, some of which are found nowhere else on earth.
