Halifax Summer Experience

6 NIGHTS Halifax

Nova Scotia is one of the four Atlantic Canada provinces alongside Newfoundland & Labrador, Prince Edward Island and New Brunswick. It is an incredibly beautiful destination and is perfect for anyone interested in culture, gastronomy, adventure travel and of course the great outdoors. About the size of Scotland, and home to only a million people, Nova Scotia features spectacular coastal and inland driving routes. 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.

On this holiday to Canada, spend 6 nights in Halifax, the provincial capital of Nova Scotia. It’s a wonderful place full of history, heritage, culture and a great food scene. With a population similar to that of Edinburgh, Halifax has the feel of world-class cosmopolitan centre, with fantastic museums, galleries, shopping and nightlife (with more pubs per head than in any other Canadian city). Halifax has the second largest natural harbour in the world after Sydney Australia, but the city itself is small enough to have a fantastically relaxed pace and visitors will find the whole place very walkable. Take time to visit the Halifax Citadel National Historic Site, a stunning, huge star-shaped 19th Century fort that overlooks the city. Or try the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic, it features a fascinating Titanic exhibition, this is because much of the debris that was recovered after the ship after it sank was actually brought to Nova Scotia. It’s also worth a trip to the Canadian Museum of Immigration at Pier 21, which tells the story of the different peoples that over the centuries have made Canada there home. And it’s in Halifax that you will first get a sense of Nova Scotia’s maritime history and its Celtic routes. Nova Scotia literally means New Scotland, and this is because Scots were the first European settlers to make the region there home. The cultural influence is felt up and down the province and is reflected today in the fantastic folk music, in Nova Scotia’s food and even in people’s accents.
