Halifax to Peggy’s Cove Tour in Nova Scotia

It's The Best of Halifax to Peggy's Cove!

The tour begins with a highlight tour of Halifax, located in the coastal region, the largest city east of Montreal and the capital of Nova Scotia. Founded in 1749 to protect British interests in North America, Halifax is steeped in maritime history. Among the highlights on this portion of the tour is the Grand Parade Square, the central square of the original town. St. Paul's church, situated in the square, is Canada's oldest Anglican Church.

Another highlight of the tour is West Dover. This small fishing community with a charming and quaint setting has a population of around 275. From there, the tour continues along the scenic coastal route to Peggy's Cove. One of Canada's most visited places, with its lighthouse perched on the edge of the ocean and quaint fishing village, Peggy's Cove attracts thousands of visitors each year. Nestled on the rocky shoreline of St. Margaret's Bay, the area offers spectacular, world-famous scenery.

You will see the Devonian Granite Rock Formations which influence much of the landscape around Peggy's Cove. These huge 350- to 415-million-year-old boulders were scattered by retreating glaciers about 10,000 years ago at the end of the last ice age. Almost unreal, they appear to be growing out of the fields of moss and shrubs.

During the drive back to Halifax, a photo stop will be made at the Halifax Citadel. The hilltop location offers visitors a panoramic view of the harbor and the city.

Tour operator was very informative.Lovely area, breathtaking views. At least we were given an hour to look around at Peggy's cove. That was better than 20-30 minutes with some of the other excursions.
