Nova Scotia

Trip Planner Canada  /  Nova Scotia
Small in terms of land area, Nova Scotia nevertheless encompasses nearly 3,800 islands floating in the Atlantic just off Canada's mainland. A vacation in Nova Scotia is understandably an ocean-based experienced, allowing you to stay within 60 km (40 mi) of the water no matter where you choose to base your adventure. Stay near the ocean, and you'll find mostly lighthouses and small settlements living off lobster fishing. Drive or cycle inland, and the landscape changes dramatically, with pretty orchards and photogenic highlands dominating the geography everywhere you look. For urban amenities during your Nova Scotia holiday, look no farther than provincial capital Halifax, offering the region's biggest range of shopping, dining, and entertainment options. Nova Scotia is in Canada. Our Canada trip builder tool allows you to plan your trip to Nova Scotia and a wealth of other destinations big and small.
