Lighthouses and Hidden Treasures | Discover Nova Scotia

Holiday Duration: 14 Nights



Nova Scotia is the crown jewel of Canada’’s East Coast. Composed of a peninsula and its surrounding islands, it offers you the chance to indulge yourself in the Canadian outdoors at its best, while enjoying excellent accommodation, dining, and other services. The inland is still wild and forested, with quiet rivers and lakes and on this holiday you will be able to see all the highlights of Nova Scotia; the beautiful scenery and wildlife of Kejimkujik and Cape Breton, as well as along the Acadian shore, where you will pass through several French-speaking villages and marvel at the soaring beauty of Acadian churches.

This itinerary is flexible and can be tailor-made to suit you; if you want to add extra days in one area, extend the holiday or maybe change the direction of travel. Talk to one of our experts about how to make this holiday the perfect one for you.

"The Rocky Mountaineer was superb"

Everything went to plan and ran smoothly with planes, cars, trains and accommodation. The Rocky Mountaineer was superb and a great experience, so well organised and such good service on board. The selection of hotels we ended up with was an eclectic mix. Cathedral Lodge in Field was outstanding and by far the best in terms of location, style and service. Just out of this world although the Black Fish Lodge experience was equally good although quite different. Lovely people there who took good care of us with amazing wild life spotting opportunities along with the fishing.

I can’t thank you enough for your patience in the planning process getting the package together and trying to match to our specific requirements. You always understood the brief and were quick in following up options and so on. Not an inexpensive holiday for sure but so memorable. It will be very hard to beat.
