Nova Scotia belongs to the East-Canadian Maritimes. What you can read on the driving plates describes exactly what you can find in this part of Canada: „Canada’s Ocean Playground“!
In fact, along the stunning costal area you can easily admire seals, pilot wales, dolphins, eagles, hummingbirds, loons and puffins.
People in Nova Scotia have a very strong relationship to the sea as their main income comes from fishing lobsters. Life on land is very quiet and slow. People here have time, are open and extremely friendly to sailors, as they rarely see some.
Light in Nova Scotia is much stronger than elsewhere, colors are more brilliant and the fog is sometimes the thickest we have ever seen. Lay back and let Nova Scotia enchant you. The coastline is deeply indented by fiords and numerous bays. Cape Breton Island in the north east has a huge lake (Bras d’Or Lake) with crystal clear water and terrific fishing possibilities. People here are still very tight to their traditions: there is always an occasion to play Scottish bagpipes and Irish fiddle music and when you are here you can choose among different Scottish events and step classes. In the French Acadian, their inhabitants, although english speaking, enjoy being greeted with a „bon jour“.
Nova Scotia is different, peculiar, very lovable and lovely at the same time. Many people find that the landscape here is very similar to Scandinavia: narrow mountains, huge green areas, lakes and large forests with moose, bears and lynxes. But, thanks to Nova Scotia’s latitude (45th latitude - the same as in France) summer is mostly warm.
