Arriving off a relatively short trans-Atlantic flight will have you refreshed and ready to explore the quaint harbourside city of Halifax straight away. Downtown shops and bars offer something for everyone, while the waterfront has museums and the fantastic Seaport Farmers Market – the oldest of its kind in North America. Overlooking the city is Halifax Citadel, a National Historic Site. Dating well back into the 18th Century, learn of the first British settlers in the region and how the location of the citadel allowed them to easily defend the harbour. South of the city, travel to Peggy’s Cove on the Atlantic and see one of over 160 historic lighthouse that dot the entire coast of this maritime province. Over 100 years old, this lighthouse still now watches over the surging ocean and helps keep lobster boats and fishermen safe. To the west, between Nova Scotia and New Brunswick lies The Bay of Fundy, home to one of the largest tidal movements in the world. Each day, over 160 billion tonnes of water moves in and out of bay, twice! This can mean a difference between high and low tide of over 10 meters so seeing both high and low tide show two different versions of the same place. At the north end of the province is Cape Breton Island. Here, explore the stunning Cape Breton Highlands National Park along 26 hiking trails or the winding roads of the Cabot Trail. Get onto the water on majestic Bra d’Or Lake or hit the fairway on Baddecks excellent golf courses.
