South Shore At Our Door
Lunenburg, Nova Scotia
We start our day together at Hirtle Beach where our spectacular hike to Gaff Point begins. A beautiful stretch of soft sand where surfers can be seen catching the gentle break and locals come to relax during the summer weekends. Our travels take us through a coastal forest and barren headland as well as a number of coves where high rugged cliffs drop to the sea. A perfect place to spot whales and seals playing off the Atlantic coast. Before reaching the headland there lies a rocky beach which is easily one of Nova Scotia’s most interesting geological wonders. You’ll just have to join us to find out why!
The second half of our day takes us to lovely Lunenburg. Designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1995, Lunenburg is one of the premier towns to visit when traveling to Nova Scotia. Founded on fishing and shipbuilding, this salt-air soaked town once produced a fishing schooner so fast, it not only became a championship racing vessel, but went on to become a national iconic treasure. That schooner would be known as the Bluenose. With a rich history, unique architecture and brightly colored houses, this quaint little ocean side town will leave a lasting impression on you.
What others have to say:
Stunning South Shore
If we were fortunate enough to return to Nova Scotia we would definitely book on another of Great E.A.R.T.H Expeditions trips. It was refreshingly different from the large coach trips, giving us a real feel for real Nova Scotia, it’s landscape, coast and wildlife.
Thank you so much for a wonderful day!

Great expedition is right!
Found Great E.A.R.T.H. Expeditions here on TripAdvisor and decided to book their Lunenburg (UNESCO World Heritage Site) Tour as it combines a visit to this town as well as a nice hike. From reading their website, booking the tour and taking the tour, everything was so easy and well managed, very professional!
