Wild and wonderful Nova Scotia
Canada’s eastern wonderland
Following our successful West Canada Photo Tour we are happy to offer this one time Photo Trip to Nova Scotia. Our 2 week photography tour in Nova Scotia leads us through stunning seascapes, quaint fishing villages and still lakes and brooks in deep forests.
Nova Scotia is famous for its Indian Summer and the lighthouses and beautiful villages. The lighthouse at Peggy’s Cove and the historic town of Lunenburg are world famous. We explore the Bay of Fundy with the highest tidal flow in the world and spend time in the wild Cape Breton Highlands where Moose prowl the forests and swamps.
Join us for an unforgettable journey to a land so close, so familiar and yet so exotic and different.
