Uniquely Nova Scotia™

Nova Scotia vacations are truly worlds-away from anything you’ve ever experienced. Renowned for the highest tides in the world at the Bay of Fundy, award-winning vineyards scattered about the province, nationally recognized chefs at the helm of Nova Scotia restaurants and over 700 festivals annually.

Nova Scotia is a place of remarkable natural beauty and thriving culture. Relax at Peggy’s Cove fishing village, go on a whale watching trip, tour the Cabot Trail on Cape Breton Island, experience Nova Scotia golf, learn about Nova Scotia genealogy or explore Canada’s seven wonders - Pier 21 - on a Halifax tour.

Remember, a Nova Scotia accommodation can be found for every style of getaway, from a seaside inn to a quaint bed and breakfast or an urban Nova Scotia hotel.

Nova Scotia is the natural choice of nature lovers. With its sea-carved coastline, the towering mountains of Cape Breton Island and beautiful and vast forests, Nova Scotia is an ideal destination for lovers of the outdoors and winter sport enthusiasts. 

Nova Scotia's blend of dramatic seas, scenic lands, Celtic music and friendly people shape a maritime culture like no other. Nova Scotia's seacoast diversity is what makes this peninsula so unique.

If you are looking for excitement, there are more than 450 Nova Scotia restaurants in Halifax and there are more pubs, clubs and nightlife venues per capital than most anywhere else in Canada. This 258 year-old city with a population of almost 400,000 takes having fun very seriously. 

The culture of Nova Scotia is dominated by historic Gaelic traditions, not the least of which is Celtic music. As the only area outside of Scotland where Gaelic language and culture live on today, it’s no wonder than the Celtic tunes of Scottish immigrants are so prevalent. But more contemporary blues, hip hop, pop, jazz and rock round out our musical traditions.

Nova Scotia’s cosmopolitan experience - from art galleries, live theatre, shopping, spas, and major sports events - is presented against a setting of colorful history and rich tradition.

Spend the day shopping at a stylish boutique or find a perfect souvenir to remember your trip with a stop at one of the many historic markets or quaint gift shops in the many busy shopping districts. For a chance to bring home an even bigger prize, don’t forget to try your luck at the casino.

The historic waterfronts are home to one of the province’s hottest action. That’s where you will find great Halifax restaurants (think seafood), live music indoors and out, and popular festivals and events that use the harbor as a backdrop.

From the gracious Victorian architecture, to the cultural smorgasbord of museums and galleries, to the excitement and fun found around every corner, Nova Scotia’s cities and towns are going to surprise you! Museums have great gifts for nature lovers, history buffs, curious Nova Scotians, home-sick Bluenosers, rock-hounders and seafaring souls. Handcrafted items, books, games, guides, hands-on projects, jewelry, educational toys - there's something for everyone on your list!

Nova Scotia vacations provide visitors and vacationing residents alike with some of the most gracious accommodations in North America. And the sheer array of vacation options is remarkable. Desiring a quiet vacation near the beautiful Bay of Fundy or Peggy’s Cove fishing village. Enjoy a rustic cottage and a variety of charming bed and breakfasts—over 400 to be exact. Chip away at Nova Scotia Golf while staying at one of the province's luxury resorts and spas. Travel through Cape Breton Highlands National Park or any of Nova Scotia's Provincial parks, and you'll discover a camper’s haven—offering everything from tent-and-trailer villages to wilderness campsites accessible only by canoe. Just as its diversity includes urban excitement, pastoral charm and wilderness adventure, so do Nova Scotia accommodations.

Whether it’s a fast-paced workout or simply a refreshing outing, enjoy the natural beauty of the province as you explore the seacoast and deep woods trails. Or experience one of the most unique winter activities in Canada. Hop on the sled and enjoy a trip through the Nova Scotia backcountry. Whether you choose a half-day or full-day wilderness excursion, it’s an adventure you’ll never forget.  Then you can strap on your skis or snowboard, hop on the lift, and get ready for an incredible experience in a beautiful, wintry setting. Nova Scotia has 4 ski hills to test beginners and experts alike.
Grab a blanket, your hat and gloves and a big thermos full of hot chocolate. A horse-drawn sleigh ride is a relaxing and fascinating way to experience a piece of rural Nova Scotia this winter.

 Even if the stunning natural beauty of the backcountry zips by you at 50 km/hr, it’ll make an impression on you. Nova Scotia has hundreds of kilometers of groomed snowmobile trails.  Or the easy to learn, snowshoeing is sometimes the only way to access some of the most fascinating natural places. It allows you to go off-trail with a freedom of movement impossible any other way.

Nova Scotia offers you a feast of holiday events to get you in the holiday spirit. Up and down the province there are holiday events of every description. The ballet of “The Nutcracker” and Handel’s “Messiah,” both Christmas classics, are performed every year in Halifax. Nova Scotia also attracts world-class performers to the Metro Center and the Rebecca Cohn stage.

No matter what time of year you visit Nova Scotia it will always leave you with everlasting memories and breathtaking sceneries. A wonderful place to travel with friends and families.
