Bradt's Nova Scotia tells visitors where to eat the best smoked fish, find the most stunning beaches and raft the world's highest tides. Delving deeper than any other guide, it reveals the best of the province both on and off the beaten track.
Nova Scotia - Canada's second-smallest province- is most commonly associated with all things maritime: pirates, shipwrecks, quaint fishing villages and its postcard lighthouse, Peggy’s Cove. It is virtually surrounded by the sea, and the ocean's salty waters pulse through its historic veins. Novia Scotia's rich folklore is steeped in sea-related superstitions together with First Nations fables, Acadian myths, Scottish legends and ghost stories. Here fishermen have cast their nets for centuries and the abundance of contemporary seafood restaurants and historic lighthouses breathe life into their traditions.
