Upon arrival in Nova Scotia, travel the scenic Lighthouse Route to Halifax with a stop in Peggy’s Cove. This unique, rugged fishing community is clustered around a narrow ocean inlet. The lighthouse is perched high up on a huge, sea-washed boulder and served as the only Post Office in a lighthouse in Canada.
Peggy’s Cove & Halifax
Begin with a tour of the City, and a visit to the Citadel, a fortress which dominates the City. The Halifax Public Gardens offer an oasis of a Victorian formal garden in the midst of a busy city. Visit the cemetery where many of the victims of the Titanic disaster are buried.
Evangeline Trail & CAT
Travel through the Annapolis Valley, with its apple orchards and lush farms. At the Grand Pré National Historic Site, a stone church stands as a memorial to the Acadians and houses an exhibit on the Deportation of these peoples, who were banished by the English. Their plight was the central theme of Henry Wadsworth Longfellow’s immortal poem, “Evangeline”. We stay in Yarmouth tonight.
Day Five. Depart for Home
Leaving Nova Scotia behind; we once again board the Nova Star ferry bound for Portland, ME.
