Nova Scotia: Where art is life

From fine artists to farm-to-table chefs, Nova Scotia is home to an amazing arts scene. But it’s not just painting and performing. Nova Scotians treat life as art – as we all should.

Nova Scotia, a maritime province in Eastern Canada, is the perfect place for a road trip, or you can bike, hike, sail or paddle your way to spontaneous discovery.

Pick your point A and your point B, and be prepared to encounter lots of surprises (and super-friendly locals) along the way.

Almost completely surrounded by ocean, Nova Scotia is a place where you fall in sync with the rhythm of the sea, as you breathe clean air, relax and recharge.

This video certainly inspires us to visit. Head to for further inspiration.
