In the harbour you’ll find local craft shops to peruse, as well as the the world’s largest fiddle, which towers beside the port’s cruise pavilion!

Located on a rocky inlet on the Atlantic Ocean, Halifax, Nova Scotia’s provincial capital, is defined by its maritime geography. It’s a spirited mix of world-class history and nautical-themed museums alongside bunkers and fortresses that guarded the harbour. There are striking public art displays, funky shops and excellent pubs serving up folk music and good pints.

You have the best part of the day to explore, with the Halifax Citadel National Historic Site a great place to start – from the star-shaped fortress you get a wonderful view of the city. Alternatively, jump aboard the amphibious Halifax Harbour Hopper which tours the city streets then splashes into the harbour!

Just under an hour’s drive from Halifax is Peggy’s Cove, home to Canada’s most photographed lighthouse. This charming village sits atop giant granite boulders, lapped by Atlantic waters.
