Most trips to Nova Scotia will begin in Nova Scotia’s Capital city, Halifax. Halifax. And it is worth staying in the city for at least a couple of day.

Halifax has a bustling waterfront filled with attractions, restaurants, and scenic views. The Canadian Museum of Immigration is the star attraction at Pier 21 located along the beautiful Halifax Harbourfront.. Here you’ll learn of the fascinating history of immigration to Canada.

One day in Halifax is definitely not enough but if you only have one day, these are the not to miss sights.

Heading Southwest from Halifax, your first is Peggy’s Cove located just 45 minutes from the Halifax. Peggy’s Cove is one of Nova Scotia’s most visited attractions and crowds can be huge here!

Peggy’s Cove Lighthouse is a beautiful setting. The lighthouse stands on 400 million-year-old rock stretching out to the sea, was created by molten lava bubbling up from the surface of the earth. The fishing village of Peggy’s Cove is a picturesque community dating back to 1811 and there are plenty of things to do here besides visiting the lighthouse.

  • Read our full post about all the things to do in Peggy’s Cove here.

Where to stay in Peggy’s Cove

We recommend staying overnight in the area and visiting at sunrise. Tour buses don’t arrive until late morning, so if you stay over and get to the lighthouse early, you’ll have it all to yourself before moving on to your next stop.

We really enjoyed our time at  Oceanstone Resort which just outside of Peggy’s Cove and makes for a great home base.

Lunenburg Nova Scotia – UNESCO World Heritage Site

After driving from Peggy’s Cove, you’ll have the afternoon and evening in Lunenburg. Lunenburg is one of only two urban centres in North America to have the honour of being named a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Lunenburg is famous for its painted houses creating a rainbow of colours along the waterfront. The pastel buildings all must adhere to a strict code to keep the town beautiful.

If you arrive early enough, join an afternoon Walking Tours to learn of the mariner history of Lunenburg and to discover its Victorian architecture. It ends at the waterfront memorial dedicated to the fishermen and mariners that lost their lives through the years.

From here, walk over to the Fisheries Museum of the Atlantic while keeping an eye out for the Bluenose II. It makes its home in Lunenburg when it is not touring around the country. And after you are done, it is easy to find a spot for dinner to try some Nova Scotia fresh lobster or seafood.

Day 4 – Blue Rocks to Liverpool

nova scotia points of interest blue rocks

There is a lot to cover today, so you will want to wake up early before sunrise. On your way out of Lunenburg, take a detour to the picturesque fishing village of Blue Rocks. Nothing says “East Coast” more than a fishing village lining the bay with fishing lodges and lobster traps reflecting in the waters and shimmering rocks in the bay.

It is only 10 minutes from Lunenburg, so if you want to go back to town for breakfast or to pick up a coffee, that is a good option. When you are finished, you will still have a full day to explore the Lighthouse Route of Nova Scotia that runs from Lunenberg to Yarmouth.

LaHave Ferry

After leaving Lunenberg or the Blue Rocks it is a thirty-minute drive time to the LaHave River where you will make your way south. When doing this portion of your road trip through Nova Scotia, be sure to use the LaHave Ferry rather than driving around, it will save you a lot of time.

la have ferry

The La Have Ferry is one of the last remaining cable ferries in the country and it operates 24 hours a day. (note between 11:30 pm and 05:30 am it is on call.) It’s just a quick 5-minute journey, but it is wild to see a cable pulling a ferry across the river.

La Have Bakery

the famous lahave bakery nova scotia attractions

While in LaHave, stop in at the LaHave Bakery for some sweets. The Victorian-era building sits on the waterfront serving fresh baked goods and coffee. It’s the perfect place to stock up on road trip goodies.

Crescent Beach

visit nova scotia crescent beach

The water may be cold on the Nova Scotia coast, but Crescent Beach is a beautiful setting. Plus it’s the only beach in Nova Scotia that you can drive on. At 2.5 km long, you can easily find a spot all to yourself to enjoy a picnic or do some sunbathing before moving on.

Liverpool

Tonight you get to relax in the historic town of Liverpool. Liverpool is home of the Privateers. Privateers were private citizens who were commissioned to “carry on all forms of hostility permissible at sea.” They patrolled the waters of Nova Scotia during the war of 1812.

Liverpool houses The Four Point Lighthouse which is free to visit and is the 3rd Oldest Lighthouse in Nova Scotia. There’s kayaking along the Mercy River and plenty of hiking along the shore. Located along the lighthouse route, it is a popular stop any Nova Scotia Road Trip Itinerary.

During the American Revolution, 3000 Loyalists settled in Shelburne from New York City making it (at one time) the fourth-largest community in North America! Visit the Shelburne Waterfront Heritage District and the Shelburne County Museum that highlights the Loyalist history of the area.

Yarmouth

Cape Forchu Lighthouse at sunset

Yarmouth is the major urban centre of Southern Norca Scotia. It is a popular Halifax destination as ferries operating from Portland Maine land here at Yarmouth.

The Cape Forchu lighthouse is the star attraction of Yarmouth and is Nova’s Scotia’s second most visited lighthouse after Peggy’s Cove. What makes this special is that it is free from crowds compared to Peggy’s Cove. It may be popular, but when we were there, we saw only two other people!

We didn’t find a lot of other things to do in Yarmouth and instead preferred our stay outside of town at Ye Olde Argyle Lodge where we could do some hiking and kayaking.

Where to Stay in Yarmouth

  • Where to Stay near Shelburne and Yarmouth: Ye Olde Argyler
  • Ye Olde Argyler was a full-service lodge in a beautiful setting. They offer kayaking trips from there too!

Day 6 – Annapolis Valley

Working your way up the Bay of Funday Shore takes you to the Annapolis Valley. It is fast becoming a major wine-producing route in Nova Scotia. Take your time to explore the coast discovering the Acadian history here at Port Royal and Grand Pré. Here you can explore several National Historic Sites – Fort Anne, Port-Royal, and Annapolis Royal Historic Gardens.

On your way stop in Digby for lunch to enjoy some scallops.

Wolfville

Hall's Harbour in Nova Scotia

It is then time to move on to Wolfville where you’ll spend the night. Wolfville is a great place for exploring the up-and-coming wine region of Nova Scotia. It is an easy drive to explore the Wine Region of the Annapolis Valley from Wolfville and then make your way back to the charming town to relax at your historic accommodation.

Where to Stay in WolfvilleBlomidon Inn – The Blomidon Inn is a beautiful grand historic BnB with ornate luxury accommodation. We loved our dinner complete with Nova Scotia wine pairings in the grand old dining room.

Day 7 – The Bay of Fundy

It is now time to drive directly to the Bay of Fundy for a walk on the ocean floor. The Bay of Fundy is home to the world’s highest tides. It moves 100 billion tons of water every 6 hours! 

bay of fundy map

That is more than all of the freshwater rivers in the world combined! The tides can reach 16 metres (52 feet) with an average range of 35 to 55 feet.  And the horizontal range can be as much as 5 kilometres in places.

You Have plenty of options to explore the Bay of Fundy and it can add either one to four days to your Nova Scotia Itinerary depending on what you choose. Either way you are going to love this coastal drive.

Burntcoat Head Park

nova scotia attractions burntcoat head park

From Wolfville, you can drive directly to Burntcoat Head Park to see the world’s highest tides. Burntcoat Head is Nova Scotia’s answer to New Brunswick’s Hopewell Rocks. For three hours on either end of low tide, there is a window where visitors can explore rock formations and sea beds that are normally covered in water. This 3-acre park has hiking trails, a lighthouse, and an interpretive center making it a great way to spend an afternoon.

If you time it right you might be able to enjoy two iconic Bay of Fundy attractions in one day. After exploring Burnthead Coat Park, head to the Shubenacadie River for some tidal bore rafting.

Tidal Bore Rafting

what to do in nova scotia tidal bore rafting

If you are looking for an adrenaline-filled adventure, Tidal Bore Rafting at the Shubenacadie River is an action-packed way to experience the high tides of the Bay of Fundy.

We went with River Runner’s rafting adventures and had an amazing time riding the waves as the 100 billion tons of water flowed with force into the river creating rapids and whirlpools.

One minute you are walking on the riverbed floor and the next you are rushing into the rafts to grab the waves as they come in. It’s the most fun you’ll ever have on the Bay of Fundy.

If you feel that you have experienced enough of the Bay of Fundy, it’s now time to move on and you can spend more time on the Cabot Trail or the Eastern Shore. If not, we have a couple more adventures.

Day 8 – Three Sisters

three sisters kayaking nova scotia adventures

The Three Sisters on the Bay of Fundy cannot be missed. The Three Sisters are huge sea stacks jutting out from the sea. When the sea is low, they are massive, but when the tide comes in, you can kayak through them.

Kayaking Three Sisters

Camping on the Bay of Fundy in Nova Scotia

You have two options here at the Three Sisters. One you can book a kayaking trip to paddle out to the sea stacks or you can simply hike the trail at Chignecto Provincial Park to See the Three Sisters and the high sea cliffs from above.

It was one of the best kayaking trips we’ve ever taken in our lives. We camped on a secluded beach on the Bay of Fundy and spent two days exploring its sea caves, sea stacks and sea cones.

Cape Chignecto Provincial Park

If kayaking and camping isn’t your thing and you don’t have two nights to go camping, you can still view the Three Sisters from above. The 5.5 km trail system (3.4 miles) follows an easy trail to state of the art wooden viewing platforms offering views of the Three Sisters.

But you will also see amazing views of sea cliffs, Eatonville Harbour and beaches. The scenery from this trail is awe-inspiring and when we visited, there was nobody else there!

Where to Stay on the Cleidhe Trail

Cape Breton

nova scotia road trip cabot trail

There is no doubt that Cape Breton is the top attraction in Nova Scotia because of the Cabot Trail coastal drive. Rated as one of the best road trips in the world, Your Nova Scotia road trip could consist only of Cape Breton Island. Visitors flock to the trail to witness its breathtaking views, enjoy its world-class hikes and take in the scenic lookouts along the drive.

Tip: Drive counterclockwise along the trail for the best views and to be on the outside lane for views. From the Cleidh Trail you may be tempted to drive straight and do the Cabot Trail clockwise, but instead make your way to Baddeck to start your Cabot Trail Journey.

We wrote an in-depth guide to the Cabot Trail, but here are some of the highlights below that you can see. Be sure to check out the full guide.

Day 10 – Cabot Trail in Baddeck

Whenever we visit Nova Scotia, we always try to put a kayaking trip on our itinerary. A good stop on the Cabot Trail for kayaking is the North River. North River Kayaking offers half-day, full-day, and overnight tours and we had so much fun with them.

If you are travelling along the Cabot Trail in Cape Breton, this is a must stop.

Uisge Ban Hike

Another hike we enjoyed was heading out to the Uisge Ban Waterfall. Located just outside of Baddeck Uisge Ban (pronounced Ishkaban)  is an easy 1 1/2 km stroll to a beautiful waterfall.

It goes through a mossy forest meandering along a running stream. If you are in the area visiting Alexander Graham Bell’s House, be sure to stop here.

After you’ve explored everything you want in Baddeck, it’s time to head north to Ingonish Beach where you’ll spend the night.

The Keltic Inn looked like an amazing place to stay, but being on a road trip, we stayed at an oTENTNIK on Ingonish Beach.

oTENTNIKs are run by and can be booked through Park’s Canada.  They are the perfect accommodation for families on a Nova Scotia Road Trip, or for couples (sleeps up to four adults or 2 adults four children) looking to spend some time outside, but not ready to rough it too much.

I personally believe a trip to Nova Scotia would absolutely include a tour of the Sydney Harbourfront , with the Big Fiddle, the Cruise Ships, Harbor tours and Restaurants, the Miners Museum and Restaurant in Glace Bay and absolutely without question The Fortress of Louisbourg , a National Historic Site of Canada and the location of a one-quarter partial reconstruction of an 18th-century French fortress at Louisbourg on Cape Breton Island.
