Nova Scotia & Cape Breton Island

Nova Scotia

Nova Scotia and Cape Breton Island are two of the four Atlantic provinces, where most of the population speaks English: with the provincial capital at Halifax. 

The other provinces are Prince Edward Island and Newfoundland.

With gorgeous scenery, amazing food, and some of the friendliest people you’ll ever meet.

 

 


The cuisine is typically Canadian, with an emphasis on local seafood.

Being home to a diverse range of premium quality seafood such as their world-famous Canadian hard-shelled lobster and cold-water shrimp to snow crab, scallops, white fish, and sea cucumber.


Summer unofficially lasts from the first Sunday in April to the Saturday before the last Sunday in October with a somewhat moderated climate.  The average temperature in July and August is only about 65 degrees. In July and August, in Halifax, the average high temperature is a comfortable 71 degrees, while the average low temperature in the city during July is 55.



The above map represents just a small number of the sights, places of interest, both private and Provincial campgrounds that may be of interest to you.  This is by no means a complete list – this is a work-in-progress adventure – this is meant only as a place for you to start your trip planning.


Cape Breton

The Cabot Trail, named one of the best road trips globally, makes a 185-mile around the island of Cape Breton.

The trail winds through stunning landscapes, along the Margaree River, a Canadian Heritage Salmon River, and through spectacular rugged highlands that treat visitors to the spectacular scenery of the Cape Breton Highlands.
