Nova Scotia is Canada’s original maritime playground and one of the friendliest places on earth. Situated on the northeast coast of North America it’s home to dramatic seas, breathtaking lands, lush valleys, vibrant nightlife, Celtic music and extraordinarily hospitable people. The cumulative effect of this (and many more unique experiences) has shaped a maritime culture like no other.
With 7,600 km (4,759 miles) of seacoast, 125 salt and freshwater beaches, and over 150 Provincial and National Parks, Nova Scotia is the ideal vacation destination for any outdoor adventurer. To the southwest is the Bay of Fundy where the highest tides in the world wash in and out, revealing new treasures on the ocean floor every day. To the north is Cape Breton Island and the Cabot Trail, home to some of the most scenic hiking, biking and driving in the world.

Here you’ll find a vibrant music scene scattered amongst its 450 restaurants and pubs serving the world’s finest seafood.

And if a more laid back vacation is what you seek, a day in one of Halifax’s soothing spas is guaranteed to melt your stress away.
