Halifax * Kejimkujik NP/Liverpool * Wolfville * Margaree/Glenville * Sydney Area * Liscomb/Salmon River
Nova Scotia offers so much to see and do that 7 days is only long enough to whet your appetite for the province. Interior wilds of forests, lakes and rivers combine with rugged seacoast, tiny fishing villages and vast, almost unused beaches. The inland is still wild and forested, with quiet rivers and lakes. The coastline is infinitely varied, from rocky cliffs to seemingly endless sand beaches. And each stretch of coastline has its own ”ocean” – the Bay of Fundy, with the highest recorded tides in the world (up to 16 metres); Northumberland Strait, with the warmest waters north of the Carolinas; the Atlantic coast with its white sand beaches; and the Bras D'Or Lake, a great inland salt sea.
