Nova Scotia

Canada's Ocean Playground

When you are in Nova Scotia everything is a reminder about how the sea influences the province and it's people. Although not an Island, Nova Scotia is surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean with only 45km wide connection to the rest of Canada. Where ever you are in Nova Scotia, you are never further than 56km from the sea.

Most of the province is covered in dense forest and gentle rolling hills. The Bay of Fundy on the west coast has the world's highest tides.

Cape Breton in the north is a large island that accounts for about one fifth of the landmass in Nova Scotia. The mountains here are more rugged and reminiscent of the Scottish Highlands.

  • Tis the Season: Christmas Tree Shopping the Nova Scotia Way
    There is nothing quite like a Christmas tree to invoke the spirit of the holidays, and in Nova Scotia, where 2 million such trees are harvested every year, a real tree is a must. Whether it is the scent of balsam or the memories that each ornament, carefully unfolded, produces, what was once referred to as a “pesky little bush” by early European settlers is now a true holiday institution. And in Nova Scotia, the Christmas tree hunt does not have to take place in a shopping mall tree lot. For many families the search for the perfect tree starts early and is accompanied by relatives, neighbors, and friends…oh, and a festive nametag, of course.
