Nova Scotia's Lighthouse Route follows the water’s edge and provides many opportunities to swim or otherwise touch the water. Its Fundy coast, where the world’s highest tides shape the coast, boasts more dramatic scenery and less approachable shores. We invite you to come and compare the two, while exploring by bicycle, in a seakayak, and on foot. The Lighthouse route takes you to white-sand beaches, and many hidden coastal treasures, including, of course, lighthouses. Friendly people, fishing villages, secluded anchorages, boat builders, antique shops, artists’ hamlets, beautiful beaches, and, of course, lighthouses all contribute to the feeling of being in paradise. In contrast, the Bay of Fundy boasts the highest tides in the world, and its shores are carved into dramatic, cliff-rich scenery. This is our home, and we love showing you the secret swimming holes, little-known cafes, and fantastic forays along obscure coastal stretches. You can dine on lobster, swim in warm lakes or the cool ocean, feel the warm sand between your toes, and appreciate the cooling sea breeze in your hair. There are two nights in the UNESCO heritage township of Lunenburg, whose uniquely crafted architecture reflects skills of numerous shipbuilders and fishermen whose lifestyle built the town. You will cross the cable ferry to the beaches near LaHave; you can soak in the pool after your activities in the university town of Wolfville; and can venture on foot to one of the most spectacular headlands in the province. This is an excellent multisport introduction to Nova Scotia’s coastal charms, and will show you why many visitors return again and again.
