Room Name: Halifax Convention Centre - Grafton Street Entrance

Peggy's Cove tour (lunch included)
Excursion à Peggy's Cove (dîner compris)

10:00 AM to 02:00 PM

Session Details

Join your kilted guide, who will introduce you to the delights of Halifax as you travel from the commercial downtown area, through the residential districts before leaving town via the Northwest Arm. 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. You will also view the famous sculpture created by local resident William deGarthe • a beautiful granite carving which depicts the life and people of the area.

Your visit to the cove is complemented by lunch overlooking one of the most photographed lighthouses in the world!
