Nova Scotia holidays

Nova Scotia, meaning ‘New Scotland’ in Latin, was one of the original provinces that became part of Canada in 1867. This region has a wonderful mix of cultures, with influences including the native Mi’kmaq peoples and Scottish settlers, who have brought their own culture and traditions. The majority of this small province is surrounded by the ocean. Its capital, Halifax, provides a gateway for exploring the area, which can be accessed by direct flights from London or via train from Montreal.
