Nova Scotia Vacations

Nova Scotia Train Tours

Resplendent in all the charms of quaint fishing villages and brimming with history and culture, Nova Scotia is a treasure of Canada's Eastern seaboard. Dramatic coastlines frame this oceanside province, as the Atlantic surrounds on three sides. On the interior, low-lying mountain ranges, rolling hills, and wind-swept valleys add contrast to the Maritime landscape and make each destination throughout the peninsula as beautiful as the next. There is no better way to experience the province's wonders than with a Nova Scotia rail vacation. Many of these Maritime tours begin with a train trip aboard VIA Rail's Ocean, an overnight train that travels from Montreal to Halifax, making its way through lovely destinations like Quebec City and Moncton along the way. On arrival, Nova Scotia's capital city makes the perfect base for adventure. A Halifax vacation puts travelers near myriad attractions and points of interest. Follow along the Lighthouse Route to see Peggy's Cove, Mahone Bay, and one of the best-preserved examples of a British Colonial settlement in Canada, Lunenburg. Nova Scotia tours may also venture across the peninsula to the fruitful Annapolis Valley, home to numerous wineries and surrounded by rolling vineyards and lush orchards.

Traveling north in Nova Scotia offers the chance to visit the opulent Fox Harb'r resort, where idyllic ocean vistas and traditional resort activities abound. Even further, the colorful landscapes of Cape Breton Island come into view. Perhaps the best way to gaze upon the island's dramatic cliffs and plunging coastlines, its deep forests and sparkling lakes, is from the world-renowned Cabot Trail. This 185-mile path makes a loop around Cape Breton, passing through Cape Breton Highlands National Park for much of its course. Fall tours to Nova Scotia make this route even more impressive. Select itineraries combine tours of Nova Scotia with Prince Edward Island for a comprehensive look at the natural grandeur of Canada's Maritimes.

“This was our second VBR Canadian trip and both have been excellent and modestly-priced. The hotels were interesting. Enjoyed having a car and finding our own eateries and activities. Discovered that it is possible to customize a trip. We added a day to each of the stops and were glad that we did. Staff was always available and responsive.
