Sightseeing Lunenburg, Mahone Bay, Peggy's Cove and Halifax
Nova Scotia's South Shore is a feast for the eyes. This seven hour tour visits three distinct, stunning seaside villages and towns nestled along our rugged Atlantic coastline. Be prepared for a big day! The furthest town (Lunenburg) is over a one hours' drive southwest from Halifax.
Through the day, you will marvel at:
1) Peggy's Cove - This tiny traditional fishing village is well known for its lighthouse and unusual rock formations. Along the way, we will also sightsee some beautiful oceanfront vistas.
2) Mahone Bay - A quaint, picturesque town which features three historic churches and a lovely main street, and
3) Lunenburg - This distinctive town is a UNESCO World Heritage Site with many historic churches and homes, some dating from the 1700's.
This tour will also include brief sightseeing of the historic city of Halifax. And if time permits, we will also visit Halifax's 'Titanic' Cemetery.
I will provide tour guide and transportation services. Bring your camera!
We will begin the tour with brief sightseeing of historic Halifax and then drive along the local coastal road out to the scenic village of Peggy's Cove (roughly a 40 minute drive).
We will then continue along the coastal St. Margaret's Bay Road to the highway and then drive (approx. one hour) down to the historic town of Lunenburg. We often stop at the Bluenose Golf Course take photos and generally view the stunning waterfront area of Lunenburg. I also drive through the streets of the town and point out various historic churches and houses. And should the client wish to stop for a meal, we will do so.
We then drive along the local road to sightsee the quaint town of Mahone Bay. We then get on the highway, heading back to the city of Halifax. And if time permits, we will sightsee more of Halifax's tourist spots.
