Inn to Inn Nova Scotia

If you enjoy days with easy walking and ample time to relax and explore the towns you're staying in, then this self-guided tour is for you. Whether you want to visit a museum, join a wine tour, or relax at an outdoor patio, you'll have a lot of flexibility to make this into the adventure you want it to be. For the most part, the walks on this tour are on railway routes that have been converted into trails, but we also include some options that take you through some Nova Scotia forests. We have a feeling you'll also be putting many more steps in strolling through the quaint towns where you'll be resting your head! You spend 2 nights in each town, allowing you to see all you need to see.

On the South Shore you'll stay in Lunenburg, which is filled with history and has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site. If the Bluenose II is in port, you may be able to see this replica of the undefeated racing schooner. Or perhaps you'll decide to visit the Fisheries Museum of the Atlantic or view some of the historic architecture throughout the town.

In Wolfville, you'll be staying beside the Bay of Fundy, where you can watch the changes of the highest tides in the world and see the mud flats in the harbour. On your walks, you'll see the vast Landscape of Grand Pre (another UNESCO Heritage Site) with the cliffs of Blomidon in the background. With your flexible schedule, you may choose to learn about the Acadians at the Grand Pre National Historical Site or hop on a wine tour for an afternoon.

So put on your walking shoes and get ready for an active yet relaxing holiday in Nova Scotia!



Your Bootprints driver will pick you up in downtown Halifax today (or the Halifax airport area) and transport you to the start of your adventure. You can pick where you start your journey to Lunenburg based on how far you want to walk. You may decide to eat lunch in Mahone Bay where you can catch a view of the harbour and the famous three churches. Tonight, you stay in Lunenburg, a UNESCO Heritage Site and home of the Bluenose II.

It may not look like a long day, but we were sure to allow plenty of time for exploring this UNESCO town, an outstanding example of a British Colonial settlement. Your day is open for you to spend as you wish... perhaps viewing the historic buildings, visiting the Fisheries Museum of the Atlantic, or joining one of the many tours available on the waterfront. If the Bluenose II is in port, you can visit this replica of the undefeated racing schooner. You'll be staying in Lunenburg again tonight.

This area's also home to bald eagles so be sure to scan the trees and the sky during your travels. Enjoy your walk into the town of Wolfville, catching glimpses of the mud flats along the Cornwallis River if it's low tide. When you get to Wolfville, don't forget to visit the harbour where, over the next few days, you'll be able to witness the changes in the water levels.

On a separate walk, you'll follow a trail to another great view of the Minas Basin and the cliffs of Blomidon.
