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.

"We explored lots of that south coast"

We have just returned from our week in Nova Scotia and wanted to thank you for organising it all. Both hotels were excellent, the Halliburton was very well placed in the city and their restaurant is really excellent. The Hotel Atlantica's cottage was just what we wanted, by the sea and equipped with all we needed and quiet. We explored lots of that south coast with a quick trip to the north but more to see next time! Your printed driving instructions were a GREAT help, not something we have been given before and greatly appreciated them.
