This tour features a drive from Halifax to Peggy's Cove along the beautiful Lighthouse Trail. You will stop in Peggy's Cove and tour a variety of surrounding areas. Along the way, visit local shops and museums, and get a feel for historical life in rural Nova Scotia. Ride in style in an Open Top 4x4 Jeep Wrangler !

For lunch enjoy Lobster, fish and chips and other local favorites at an additional cost.

A typical tour includes a stop to the Titanic Graveyard site, small fishing village of Lower Prospect/Terence Bay where you can walk to a small local Lighthouse on the rocky coastline (maybe find some sea glass on the beach), Peggy's Cove and Lighthouse, with access to local access to amazing views, meal/lunch stop and more.

A Recent Review of this tour

Mel was a great tour guide. He was very knowledgeable about Peggy's Cove and it was fun riding in his Jeep. He recommended a great place for lunch called Shaw's Landing. The lobster grilled cheese and lobster bisque was awesome. He was very accommodating and friendly. His Jeep tour sure beat any bus tour we took the rest of the week! Thank you Mel!
