About Nova Scotia:  Here’s some useful tips about our Province to share with your customers.

The gateway to Atlantic Canada and only a 6 hour flight from the UK, this province is filled to the brim with stunning natural beauty, diverse cultures, rich heritage, and warm, friendly people. Known for its world class experiences, spectacular beaches, and a top-notch locally sourced culinary scene shaped by the sea.


From the Cabot Trail, voted time and time again as one of the world’s most scenic drives, to the Bay of Fundy, recorded to have the highest tides in the world, and included as one of the seven most breathtaking natural wonders of North America.  About the size of Scotland, and home to just under a million people, Nova Scotia is very much a road trip destination. With spectacular seaside and inland driving routes, it’s an easy destination to get around and the journey is very much part of the holiday experience.


Nova Scotia is rich in history and boasts 6 UNESCO designated sites; it is the perfect destination for sailing, whale watching, kayaking and more. Visitors can also go river rafting on the highest tides in the world, glamp under the stars while listening to traditional music, or learn from locals on a guided hike or paddle.




Tidal Bore Rafting: If you’re an adventurous person, tidal bore rafting should be firmly placed on your list of things to do in Nova Scotia! Two times a day, the tides in the Bay of Fundy rise and fall (between 3.5 metres (11 feet) and 16 metres (53 feet), depending on the phase of the moon). When this massive influx of water pours into the Shubenacadie River, the two waters collide to create rapids, waves, and a whole lot of swells. Add to the fun: go mud-sliding after your rafting trip!


Hike in National Parks: The Cabot Trail cuts through the Cape Breton Highlands National Park, which is home to 26 hiking trails. The most popular is the Skyline Trail, and it’s popular for good reason! At the end of the loop, you’re rewarded with vast views out to the Gulf of St. Lawrence, and many people encounter wildlife such as deer or moose on this trail. Nova Scotia’s other national park is Kejimkujik National Park& National Historic Site which is home to some great hikes as well. If you have the time and the ability, you can embark on one of the backcountry trails (4 days long), or if you’re looking for a day hike, there are plenty of those as well, ranging in length from 200 metres to 5 kilometres (3 miles).


Stargazing: Nova Scotia is home to Acadian Skies and Mi’kmaq Lands, the first designated dark sky destination in North America. Experience the night sky with your guide on a night hike or bike tour. For those who enjoy looking up at the night sky and admiring the stars, The Deep Sky Eye Observatory is the perfect place to do it. Sit back with a warm blanket in an anti-gravity chair and let them guide you through to the universe. Learn to navigate the night sky using points of reference such as Polaris and the constellations and see live views of the night sky’s celestial wonders through their outdoor telescope.


Another great place for stargazing is Kejimkujik National Park & National Historic Site – the park was designated as a Dark Sky Preserve by the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada in 2010, which restricts the use of artificial light in most of the park. The result is a stargazer’s paradise, with clear nights offering unparalleled views of the moon, constellations and planets.  An even better way to stargaze is to set up camp at one of the many campsites throughout the park, including serviced sites with electricity and others that are lit only by the stars!



Starlight Culinary Escape: A wilderness escape at the world’s first starlight hotel which is the Trout Point Lodge. Located within UNESCO Southwest Nova Scotia Biosphere Reserve in Yarmouth. Experience Includes:

Overnight accommodation, Guided forest walk (Explore the edge of the Tusket River on forested paths and boardwalks to your private stargazing deck), Expert-led stargazing where you’d listen to stories shared by an astronomy expert whilst you can enjoy Nova Scotian sparkling wine.


Horse riding at Cliffs of Fundy Geopark: Fascinating Mi’kmaw legends, the highest tides in the world, and the oldest dinosaur fossils in Canada are just the beginning in this geological wonderland. Nova Scotia’s 6th UNESCO designation, Cliffs of Fundy Global Geopark has added a new experience to its many offerings: a Horseback Tidal Floor & Fossils Tour.


Telling the story of the coming together of the supercontinent Pangea 300 million years ago and its ripping apart 100 million years later, the Geopark follows the stunning Bay of Fundy shoreline with many  attractions to explore such as hiking trails, provincial parks, community museums, lighthouses, beaches and kayaking tours.


The new Horseback Tidal Floor & Fossils Tour is one-of-a-kind experience where you tour the ocean-floor by horseback, trotting along the world-famous Bay of Fundy to a fossil site where you’ll see the low tides revealing 300-million-year-old dinosaur fossils.  Along the way you’ll observe a variety of tidal creatures such as clams, crabs and shore birds galore.



Kayaking: From the dramatic cliffs, arches and towering pinnacles of northern Cape Breton and Cape Chignecto to the sheltered waterways and isolated white sand beaches of Prospect and Tangier, for many, this coast is best seen from the water. History buffs will enjoy paddling along historic waterfronts, while cultural enthusiasts will love chatting with local fishermen or traversing the waterways of the Mi’kmaq.


Visit Georges Island National Historic Site: The newest addition to Nova Scotia’s National Historic Sites family, Georges Island is located in the heart of Halifax harbour, the place the Mi’kmaq called Kjipuktuk or “The Great Harbour.” Georges Island is one of five National Historic Sites in Halifax which are known collectively as the Halifax Defence Complex including: Halifax Citadel, Fort McNab, Prince of Wales Tower and York Redoubt.


Accessible by shuttle boat or kayaking packages discover how this small island and its fortifications played a large role as a prison, as an internment camp for Acadians, in the development of Nova Scotia and in the overall defence of Canada. Visitors can take in a guided tour of the historic tunnels, enjoy the scenic views from a new perspective and immerse yourself in the rich history of Halifax!
