Cailin with a toy lobster at the Peggy's Cove Lighthouse

We would like to acknowledging that being in Nova Scotia we are in Mi’kma’ki (MEEG-MA-GEE), the traditional (or ancestral) territory of the Mi’kmaq.


Nova Scotia is becoming an increasingly popular destination for travellers from around the world. Known for its fresh seafood, ocean views, lighthouses, the rolling hills of Cape Breton, locally grown wines and so much more. It is a beautiful province year round and there is so much to see, do and explore.

NovaScotiaExplorer.com will highlight the very best that Nova Scotia has to offer. From accommodation reviews to featuring the best things to do in Nova Scotia. Restaurant and food recommendations, guides to the best road trips, suggestions of things to do outside of the normal tourist route and so much more.
