Nova Scotia holidays are packed with delights - the striking landscapes to the rich cultural heritage, the thousands of miles of coastline to the abundant indigenous wildlife. Stay in one place or ask a Destination Expert to create a bespoke, multi-centre itinerary focussing on the highlights of this Canadian province.
An abundance of museums and historic sites here means there’s plenty of culture to soak up too, whilst the National Parks of Cape Breton Highlands and Kejimkujik – not to mention 120 additional provincial parks - offer wild and rugged landscapes just waiting to be explored. Whale watching is big here too, with sightings of around 15 species possible near Nova Scotia’s shores.
Wherever you chose to visit, you’ll find a warm welcome and a pleasing culinary scene. ‘Fresh and local’ isn’t a trend here; it’s just the way it’s always been, and dining by the beach at an authentic lobster shack at least once on a stay in Nova Scotia is a must for fans of seafood.
What’s more, Nova Scotia is surprisingly convenient to get to. Flights from the UK take less than six hours, and with only a four-hour time difference you don’t need to worry about the dreaded jet lag ruining your time away. So, what are you waiting for?
