Join your kilted guide and head to Nova Scotia’s delightful South Shore where you will experience Lunenburg, one of the prettiest towns in Canada and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. 

Settled in the mid 1750’s by Germans and Swiss, the locals still retain one of the most interesting accents in North America. Now a bustling fishing port, Lunenburg was once considered to be the busiest shipbuilding town in the world, and was the birthplace of the world-famous racing schooner Bluenose. The town’s distinctive architecture and extraordinary scenic beauty is a colourful reminder of our maritime heritage. Upon arrival choose between joining your guide for a walking tour of the original town plat, or free time to explore at your leisure. 

Next, there are more picture-perfect sights to be seen in Mahone Bay, including the well-known scene of three waterfront churches. The quaint charm and century-old architecture is sure to captivate as you enjoy free time to explore and shop. 

Your day traveling the beautiful coastline of Nova Scotia’s south shore is sure to take your breath away.
