Nova Scotia Holidays

Stunning coastal scenes

This charming province sits right on the Eastern Seaboard of Canada. A stunning coastal region of incredible beauty; enjoy amazing wildlife, majestic seascapes, beautiful bays, mirror-still coves and breathtaking beaches. Explore the craggy Atlantic shoreline and mist-cover islands of Nova Scotia, Canada’s ocean playground.

Take a trip along the dramatic coast, whether by car, bike or on foot, to breathe in the salty ocean air and feast on fresh seafood. In Halifax, Nova Scotia's laid-back capital city, time is best spent enjoying the ocean views with a glass of the award-winning local wine, followed by a visit to the beautiful public gardens. For an outdoor adventure, embark on a whale watching trip to see magnificent humpbacks in the wild, or explore the region by foot on one of the many hiking trails, taking you high into the landscape and low to the seafront. 

Once you've explored Nova Scotia, head to New Brunswick for unspoiled nature and wilderness, or visit Ontario for a chic city escape.
