With over 100 Provincial Parks and 3 UNESCO World Heritage Sites, Nova Scotia is undeniably Canada’s most beautiful province. Some of the best hiking trails in the world wind through Nova Scotia, and camping sites are abundant here.  Atlantic tides rise and fall to record breaking degrees in Five Islands and The Bay of Fundy, carving gaping cliffs and inlets out of the deep red coastal rock.
