Our journey begins in Halifax and takes us to the fertile farming
Annapolis Valley. Here we find farmland producing juicy apples and giant
pumpkins (in autumn) and many different grapes which supply the
award-winning wineries that we are able to stop at for tastings and
tours. There is plenty of history here too with the 1755 deportation of
the Acadians, and if you like we can stop at the incredible Grand Pre
National Historic Site.
From there we will head to the Bay of Fundy stopping at Hall's Harbour,
where the tide has reached a height of 45 feet! This small community is
home to a significant lobster catch each year, and - if the mood strikes
you - lunching on lobster overlooking the harbour is a highlight many
people have enjoyed.
We'll cross the peninsula of Nova Scotia and head to the world reknown
UNESCO World Heritage Town of Lunenburg, which is where you will be
spending the night. With plenty of delicious restaurants, cafes and pubs
you are sure to find a delicious dinner in line with your own personal
tastes. As a local, Greg your driver is more than able to recommend the
perfect place to dine. If you're lucky you'll have an opportunity to
catch some live local music, or the Fish Factory's famous Wednesday
night live ceilidh. There are plenty of options for accommodation in the
area to suit any budget - we are happy to make a recommendation.
We'll pick you up at your accommodation and tour the town -- or perhaps
you might rather join Lunenburg Walking Tours for an entertaining tour
on foot, or Trot in Time Buggy's and see the town by horse drawn
Next we can either drive to the small fishing village of Bluerocks, or
head to Hirtle's Beach where we can hike Gaff's Point or perhaps go for
a swim in the Atlantic Ocean. From there we will head into Mahone Bay -
a picture-perfect quintessential seaside town. This is a great place to
grab some lunch or you might rather wait until we arrive in Chester -
our next port of call. A Loyalist Village with beautiful homes and
sailboats, and the town in which much of the tv show Haven is filmed.
From Chester we will visit Queensland and then Peggy's Cove -- a visit
to Nova Scotia isn't complete without a stop there! Walk to the
lighthouse or go for a romp on the rocks if you like. From there we will
continue along the scenic route and return you to Halifax.
Are you wondering what the seven bays were? Bay of Fundy, Mahone Bay,
Rose Bay, Bayport, Kingsburg, Lunenburg & St Margaret's!
