Nova Scotia Touring


See a different side to Canada with an unforgettable tour of the Nova Scotia region, where enthralling history, engaging culture and beautiful scenery awaits you.

Set on a peninsula to the north-east of Canada, Nova Scotia is Latin for ‘New Scotland’, a name that is representative of its British colonial roots when it was founded in 1749 as a bulwark against French settlements. Since then, this province has flourished into a vibrant and interesting corner of Canada, making a Nova Scotia tour an engaging adventure into a fascinating legacy.


During your Nova Scotia tour you have the opportunity to explore the capital city Halifax with its Citadel and maritime atmosphere, the beautiful Cape Breton Highlands and the spectacular coastline of Prince Edward Island. Better still, a Nova Scotia tour is also a chance to immerse yourself in Canada’s absorbing culture, where you may wish to go lobstering, view the world’s highest tide at Bay of Fundy and sample some of the authentic local cuisine.

A breathtaking blend of scenery, both maritime and mountainous, a visit to Nova Scotia is a must for any Canada tour.

With many of your meals also included, you're free to sit back and enjoy your holiday without having to worry about a thing.
