Nova Scotia is located in Canada, on the upper east coast of North America, lying between the provinces of New Brunswick (in the west) and Newfoundland (in the northeast).
Explore Nova Scotia, from the Cabot Trail on Cape Breton Island, to Greater Halifax and Peggy's Cove, the famous tides of the Bay of Fundy, the rugged wilderness and pristine white sand beaches of the Eastern Shore, the orchards and wineries of the Annapolis Valley, to the lighthouses and Acadian culture of the South Shore.
How do I get there ?
Nova Scotia is easily accessable by Air, Sea or Land. An international airport is located just outside the capital city of Halifax. There is also an airport located in Sydney which services the island of Cape Breton. Several ferry services operate in Nova Scotia, offering connection to the surrounding Provinces of New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island and Newfoundland. Nova Scotia is connected to mainland Canada at the New Brunswick border. Travelling the Trans Canada Highway east from New Brunswick will enter Nova Scotia in the Amherst area... from here it is roughly a 2.5 - 3 hour drive to the capital city of Halifax. Passenger rail service is provided by VIA Rail, with stations in Truro and Halifax.
