Encompassing one of the first areas in North America colonized by European settlers, Southwest Nova Scotia contains some of Canada's oldest communities, with roots going back over 4 centuries. Tiny villages centered on quaint wooden churches top most Southwest Nova Scotia itineraries, offering visitors a chance to discover a tranquil part of North America little changed since newcomers from the Old World conquered it. This region also serves as home to Canada's largest fishing fleet, providing employment and a steady income for the majority of population. Enrich your Southwest Nova Scotia holiday by exploring the area's fishing settlements, where you can dig for clams, tour oyster farms, and learn how to prepare homemade seafood chowder.
