Nova Scotia truly is picture-perfect. Where else can you find such scenic variety? Crashing surf and placid lakes, tiny highland hamlets and bustling cities, ancient rites and modern magic - it's all here. Although only 560 km from tip to tip, Nova Scotia's coastline stretches over 7400 kilometers.

Countless bays, coves, inlets and harbours provide some of the best sailing in North America, excellent scuba diving, wind surfing and sea kayaking. Nova Scotia is one of the finest places on the eastern seaboard for whale and bird watching. Around every bend, a new treasure awaits the explorer.

But the true riches of Nova Scotia are to be found in its people. "Bluenosers" are open, friendly and willing to share in the culture and good times of their province.
