Hostelling International Tripbook for

Nova Scotia

11 Entries

The people of the maritime province of Nova Scotia are some of the friendliest in Canada. Quaint, picturesque houses and delicious seafood are two things you can be guaranteed of during your hostel-stay in this region. Attend a festival in springtime – there are loads to choose from including the TD Halifax Jazz Festival and the New Glasgow Riverfront Music Jubilee. Choose from over 100 beaches to surf, sunbathe or kayak at in the warmth of summer. Taste local delights and buy arts and crafts at the farmers’ markets during harvest time. Go skiing or ride on a dogsled in the snowy wonderland of winter. Other highlights include the eye-catching Arisaig Lighthouse, the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia and the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic where you can view real artefacts found in the Titanic. Spend an afternoon relaxing at Point Pleasure Park, picnicking and enjoying views of the ocean.
