Tourism in Nova Scotia
Most people connect to Canada pictures of unique nature, crystal clear waters, endless plains, abundant wildlife and adventure. The Province of Nova Scotia brings all this and much more on a manageable area for Canadian conditions.
In Nova Scotia you expect very warm, sometimes even hot temperatures in the summer. With its location on the 45th parallel, Nova Scotia is on the same level as Italy or the South of France, which explains the rapid increasing temperatures of water and air in the spring.
The Atlantic Ocean is ubiquitous in Nova Scotia; at no whereabouts you are ever further than 56 kilometers from the sea. The length of the coastline is over 7,400 km, only interrupted by the idyllic fishing village, unique cliffs and long sandy beaches. A variety of natural spectacles makes Nova Scotia beyond unique: for example, you can expect huge tidal ranges to about 200 meter high rock walls of the Bay of Fundy. With over 12 meters of difference between high and low tide this is actually the largest in the world.
The bustling province capital Halifax is one of the most popular cities in Canada. Reasons for this include the low pollution / ozone values, the high density at universities in Canada in relation to the population, and the high level of education of the workforce. The outstanding position of Halifax is also reflected in a steadily rising population of currently 390,000. Halifax also has a year-round ice-free harbor, which occupies an important role in the economic performance of the region and is one of the most important trading ports around the world.
