Welcome to our Halifax Station. We look forward to welcoming you as our Guest!

Nova Scotia and its neighbouring provinces, Newfoundland and Labrador, New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island form what is known as Canada's Maritime provinces. The Bay of Fundy, separating Nova Scotia from New Brunswick to the west, is home to some of the world's highest tides as 160 billion tonnes of seawater flow in and out twice daily, creating tidal variations of over 50' (15m) in height.

Those familiar with the Lucy Maud Montgomery books about Anne of Green Gables shouldn't miss the opportunity to visit Green Gables Heritage Place in Prince Edward Island National Park to view the farmhouse and stroll through many of the places mentioned in her books. Outdoor adventure opportunities are plentiful in PEI National Park with swimming, cycling, hiking, wildlife viewing, surfing and camping.
