Port of Halifax - Halifax and Peggy's Cove - Up to 8 Hours
Join your kilted guide and travel along the Lighthouse Route on to Peggy’s Cove, which has been an artists’ and explorers’ paradise for over 200 years. This village is located on the rugged Atlantic shoreline, standing on solid rock above the crashing surf. The coastline is famous for pirates, shipwrecks, rum-running and sunsets. Choose between a walking tour of the cove with your guide or free time to explore on your own. Either way, you will see the weatherworn fishing shacks, colourful buoys and lobster traps still used by local fishermen, and awe-inspiring rock formations that have been carved out by the glaciers of the last Ice Age. Your visit to the cove is complemented by lunch overlooking one of the most photographed lighthouses in the world. Return to Halifax for an informative and fun-filled ride through the streets of our city which will immerse you in our history and culture. Learn about Halifax's war years and of the exploits and heroism of the citizens who lived through the devastating Halifax Explosion. See the Historic Properties, the Spring Garden Road area, Old Town Clock, St. Paul's Church, Grand Parade, the busy port, the state of the art Halifax Central Library, and much more. Highlights will include a stroll through the Victorian Public Gardens and a visit to Fairview Lawn Cemetery to learn about the local connections to the Titanic Disaster. From tales of disaster and triumph to remarkable stories of everyday life, discover the people and places that have made Halifax one of the most unique and captivating cities in North America!
