What to do
Try some of these activities during your Nova Scotian vacation:
- Tidalbore Rafting
Nova Scotia’s home-grown adventure sport is a wild boat ride over the waves created by the world’s highest tides. You won’t find it anywhere else in the world so don’t miss your chance to try this unique activity. More…
See some of the earth’s largest creatures in the waters off Digby Neck, Cape Breton or Yarmouth. As well as whales, you might see porpoises or marine birds. More…
There aren’t many places in the world that can rival the rockhounding potential around Parrsboro and Five Islands on the Bay of Fundy. The beaches of Blomidon Provincial Park are also a good choice. Just come at low tide, with a hammer and a bag to take your treasures away.
- Camping and Hiking
Our two National Parks – Keji and the Cape Breton Highlands – showcase some of the province’s best scenery. In addition, there are dozens of Provincial Parks for camping or a day out at the beach and don’t forget the hike to Cape Split from Blomidon Provincial Park.
History comes to life at the Fortress of Louisbourg in Cape Breton, Citadel Hill in the capital city of Halifax and Fort Anne and Port Royal in the Annapolis Valley.
Nova Scotia has many fabulous museums. Pier21, the Alexander Graham Bell Museum and the Fisheries Museum of the Atlantic are just a few of the top ones to hit. More…
