Nova Scotia is one of the friendliest places on earth. We invite you to discover the seven regions of Nova Scotia and all the experiences they have to offer. Whether you’re an urbanite wanting to shop and pamper yourself, a history buff interested in Atlantic Canada’s heritage, a foodie in search of the best seafood, or an outdoorsman excited to begin a new adventure, Nova Scotia has something spectacular for you.
A short film I created on my recent photography trip to Cape Breton, Nova Scotia. It was shot with a hacked Panasonic GH1, stock 14-140mm lens, and a Canon 20mm FD lens. Edited in FCP @24fps and graded using Magic Bullet Looks.
From the rolling orchards and dykelands of the Annapolis Valley to the mountains of the Cabot Trail, to the glacial boulders of Peggy’s Cove and the geological formations of the Bay of Fundy, from the warm sands of the Northumberland Strait to the rugged shores of the Lighthouse Route – this is a hiking, cycling, paddling, sailing and just plain playing paradise.
Build sandcastles, fly kites, take a surf lesson, or just walk barefoot in the sand. There’s nothing like a beach to bring out the little kid in all of us. And every day offers up a new adventure when you’re exploring the nooks and crannies of Nova Scotia’s 7,600 km (4759 miles) of seacoast.
From white sand beaches, to smooth cobblestone beaches, to endless reaches of red sand along the Northumberland shore, each of our 125 salt and freshwater beaches has its own distinct character. For instance, Melmerby Beach, Clam Harbour Beach, and Risser’s Beach, where you can find organized activities like sand castle contests and lifeguard competitions, are popular for family outings. Nature-lovers might prefer the beach in Five Islands Provincial Park, unsupervised except for the magnificent two hundred and twenty-five million year-old geological formations looking over your shoulder.
