Kickstands up at 8:30 am. Full tank and an empty bladder. As we ride south from Halifax, we’ll cruise along Nova Scotia’s famous ‘Lighthouse Route’ a beautiful scenic ride that will take us through picturesque coastal villages and inlets to the rugged fishing community of Peggy’s Cove.

With its breathtaking location on a narrow coastal inlet characterised by wave-worn granite rocks and crashing surf, it’s easy to see why this charming little community is perhaps Canada’s most photographed site. With a year-round population of 30, Peggy’s Cove is a sleepy little town famous for several things including beautiful ocean waters, a small narrow inlet, a scenic lighthouse, and the unfortunate crash 8 km offshore of Swissair Flight 111 on 2 September 1998, after departing from New York’s JFK Airport.

Departing Peggy’s Cove, we’ll ride along Nova Scotia’s beautiful South Shore through the picturesque seaside village of Mahone Bay to arrive in the scenic town of Lunenburg, founded in 1753. With its brightly coloured buildings lining the shore, Lunenburg is considered one of Canada’s most colourful postcard-perfect towns and is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site. We’ll have lunch overlooking the sailboat-filled harbour before riding some twists and turns along the route back to Halifax, passing through small villages that add character to the Lighthouse Route. Dinner is on your own tonight. Enjoy the many fun dining opportunities along the Halifax Harbourfront. We recommend The Lower Deck on the waterfront, for fun, good food and Maritime Hospitality.

After a stop in Windsor, the Blomidon Look-Off, one of the more scenic mainland viewpoints will be our destination for a photo-op. We’ll then continue riding a short distance to Halls Harbour, visiting this small fishing village on the Bay of Fundy. Be sure to note where the waterline is when you arrive, as the world record tides will make a dramatic change. The tide will be going out and will drop nearly 3 meters while we have lunch. Moving back up to the Northern side of the Annapolis Valley, our ride continues to Historic Annapolis Royal, on the Digby Gut, one of the first North American settlement areas over 400 years ago. After a short visit to this quaint area, we will move through Digby to catch the MV Fundy Rose on which we will enjoy crossing the Bay of Fundy to Saint John New Brunswick, where our hotel for the night is a short ride from the ferry terminal.
