Holidays in Nova ScotiaReference WW37919
Packed with incredible beauty and a tangible sense of adventure; Nova Scotia is one of Canada’s best cultural hotspots. Located in Eastern Canada, Nova Scotia is one of the four Atlantic provinces and is around about the size of Scotland. But wait for it, there’s a population of only one million, which makes this place the perfect backdrop for an action-packed holiday.
With spectacular coastal and inland driving routes, it’s easy to get around, and the journey is very much part of the holiday experience. And unlike much of Canada, road distances are relatively short, and you will find that the landscapes and cultures change dramatically from one town to the next. Think incredible seafood, stunning hiking trails, fascinating history and genuinely breath-taking scenery and wildlife; you get all of this and more in Nova Scotia.
Nearly any trip in Nova Scotia begins in the provincial capital, Halifax. It’s a beautiful place to start your adventure as it’s full of history, heritage and a great food scene. With a population similar to that of Edinburgh, Halifax has the feel of a world-class cosmopolitan centre, with fantastic museums, galleries, shopping and nightlife. And it’s here you will first get a sense of Nova Scotia’s maritime history and its Celtic roots, which are felt up and down the province.
With direct flights from Glasgow to Halifax, flying on WestJet, there has never been a better time to plan and to explore this beautiful province. Speak to one of our travel experts today about your Canadian adventure.
