The Second Smallest Province in Canada
Nova Scotia is one of Canada’s three Maritime Provinces and constitutes one of the four Atlantic Canada provinces. Located almost exactly halfway between the Equator and the North Pole, its provincial capital is Halifax. Nova Scotia is the second-smallest province in Canada, with an area of 55,284 square kilometres, including Cape Breton Island and another 3,800 coastal islands.
Nova Scotia boasts five UNESCO-designated sites. Exploring these world-renowned landscapes you’ll discover historic coastal harbours, lush farmland, and the breathtaking Bay of Fundy.
The Land of Wineries
Like Niagara Regions in Ontario, the soil and weather in Nova Scotia are ideal for producing the grapes that result in our character-rich and award-winning wines. Nova Scotia is home to 11 wineries, each a testament to commitment and dedication to the craft.
Best Place to Get Lobsters
If you haven’t eaten lobster in Nova Scotia, then you haven’t really eaten lobster. This popular seafood is still the lifeblood of our many working fishing communities and when you visit Lobster in the Rough in Halls Harbour, you’ll be able to pluck a lobster from the pound, stroll the wharf while lobster boats ply the ocean, and wait for your lobster to be cooked to perfection.
