10 Must-Have Experiences in Nova Scotia

This Canadian province is brimming with beautiful views and picturesque landscapes at every turn.

Roughly an eight-hour drive end to end, Nova Scotia could be conquered in a day. But Canada’s second-smallest province is best experienced slowly, with plenty of time for personal reflection, scrumptious plates of seafood, seaside chats, leisurely blueberry-picking, and wharf-side ceilidhs.

Nova Scotia is home to the highest tides in the world, vibrant seaside cities and towns, five UNESCO-designated sites, and a beautiful folk art heritage.
