By Land

Whether you are travelling by car, motorcycle or RV or sitting back and relaxing on a train or bus, you’ll be amazed at the scenic beauty. Nova Scotia is a world-renowned motorcycle touring destination.

Walking & Biking

Once here, exploring this working waterfront by foot is a popular way to access the many points of interest along the way. Seasonally, horse drawn carriages provide a fun way to start and stop a town tour on the waterfront.

There are also a number of biking trails that take you to Lunenburg where you can make your way to the waterfront.

While in the area, also explore the Bay to Bay Trail connecting Lunenburg to Mahone Bay and the Adventure and Dynamite Trails.
