Discover the rustic charm of the renowned fishing village of Peggy’s Cove where we will enjoy breakfast.  Travel Nova Scotia’s South Shore and on to the UNESCO World Heritage Town of Lunenburg, renowned for her fleets of Grand Banks’ fishing schooners.  Take a walking tour to fully experience one of the most remarkably preserved colonial settlements in the New World, and visit the Fisheries Museum of the Atlantic to learn about the town’s famous seafaring heritage.  We are then off to postcard-perfect Mahone Bay where a trinity of 19th century-built churches represents an iconic cultural landscape of Nova Scotia.  Enjoy some free time to stroll through the town and chat with the welcoming locals who have been known to share superstitions, legends and fables that date back to the rum-running days.  Arrive in Western Shore for the night and learn of legendary Oak Island – home of the world's longest running hunt for lost treasure.  We overnight at a peaceful and serene ocean-side resort.
