Breath-taking City Breaks: Explore Halifax, Lunenburg and More

For a Canadian city break you’ll remember for years to come, book on to our Explore Halifax guided tour; it’s one of our favourite ones yet. Join us as we delve deep into the area’s rich maritime history and natural beauty while travelling to some of Nova Scotia’s prettiest and most picturesque places.

Halifax, where you will be based for the entirety of our four-day group excursion, is a lively Canadian city known for its pubs and high-quality beer. It’s set in the province of Nova Scotia, one of the most beautiful areas in the entire country. Over the course of your time in Canada you will have the opportunity to explore four fascinating areas, learn about their amazing maritime history and see some of the world’s most stunning natural beauty.

Halifax and Peggy’s Cove

Day one will allow for independent adventuring after your arrival in Halifax – we recommend exploring the historic waterfront or wandering through the gorgeous Victorian Halifax Public Gardens. On day two, you and the rest of the group will meet at the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic, located at the very heart of the waterfront. As the name suggests, the museum (which is the largest and oldest in the entire country) focuses on the rich maritime heritage of Nova Scotia. Once you arrive, you will attend a tour of the area led by an expert local guide.

This tour will also include a visit to Peggy’s Cove, an iconic Nova Scotia landmark less than an hour away from Halifax. This beautiful region has inspired explorers and artists for over 150 years – join us and see why for yourself.

Lunenburg and Mahone Bay

Day three also begins with a tour that sets off from the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic. However, today you will be exploring the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Lunenburg and its neighbour Mahone Bay, both located just one hour away from Halifax in the South Shore region of Nova Scotia. Learn about the fascinating boat-building and fishing history, as well its darker underbelly of rum-running and pirates, before enjoying a guided walking tour around Lunenburg. The daytrip ends in Mahone Bay, a picturesque town known for its churches and charming beauty.

Top Tip: Bring your camera along and snap some photos of this breath-taking area for tangible memories you can bring home with you. There’s nowhere else quite like Lunenburg and Mahone Bay.
