This new, thoroughly updated edition of Bradt’s Nova Scotia remains the most comprehensive guide available to this increasingly popular region of eastern Canada. New direct flights from the UK make visiting easier than ever before, helping to fuel the growth of tourist numbers to the many new distilleries and wineries, all of which are covered in this new edition.

Virtually surrounded by the sea, the region boasts 4,600 miles of coastline, superb seafood, a rich folklore, quiet roads and a wealth of outdoor pursuits. Travelling here feels like going back to a time when life's pleasures were simpler: shopping at a Farmers’ Market or a roadside fruit stall, buying lobster fresh off the boat at the wharf, or photographing the lighthouse by the old fishing village. What’s more, it's not hard to get off the beaten track here.

About the Author

David Orkin is a freelance travel writer whose work has appeared regularly in leading UK publications such as The Independent and Wanderlust and Food & Travel, international publications such as Marie Claire and Conde Nast Traveller, and many travel websites. He has travelled extensively since the mid-1970s as a backpacker, on business, and at the luxury end of the market. After over 15 years in the travel industry in the UK, David first visited Nova Scotia in 2004. He bought a house there --- and wrote the first edition of Nova Scotia: the Bradt Guide - in 2007, and has been living there with his family (when not globetrotting) since. He travels round the region regularly and throughout the year. Consequently, it is relatively easy for him to stay in touch with what is going on in the province as an 'insider', but also for him to see Nova Scotia from the point-of-view of a visitor.

Industry Reviews

'Orkin makes a compelling case for Canada's second smallest province, where more Gaelic is spoken than in Scotland, and where you're as likely to spot a whale as a black bear.....' Daily Telegraph

'Whale-watching from Digby Neck, sea-kayaking off Tangier and driving the Cabot Trail: three of the thrills waiting in one of Canada's most accessible and fascinating provinces. David Orkin's inspirational guide ranges from the capital, Halifax, to St Paul Island and the "Graveyard of the Gulf" (of St Lawrence), where 350 ships have been wrecked....... ' The Independent

'Comprehensively covers the "Kingdom of New Scotland."' Independent Traveller
