Nova Scotia

Nova Scotia

Long defined by the ocean that surrounds it, Nova Scotia offers year-round surfing and sea kayaking, charming fishing villages and some of the freshest seafood you’ll ever taste. But there’s more to this province than the sea. Look closer, and you’ll discover that its charms run deeper — from acclaimed vineyards and world-class golf to the iconic Cabot Trail.

There are 13 First Nations in Nova Scotia who have called the province home for over ten thousand years — and their rich diversity of art, language and music thrive to this day. 

Connect with the Mi’kmaq community as you participate in a drumming circle. Appreciate the rugged beauty of the land on a scenic 2.4-kilometre trail through Goat Island on Bras d’Or Lake. Or gain a new skill as you take part in a traditional beading or dream catcher workshop at Membertou Heritage Park in Cape Breton.
