It also has three UNESCO World Heritage sites, two UNESCO biospheres, a Canadian Museum of Immigration, 12 National Historic Site attractions, two National Parks and 28 Provincial museums and interpretive centers, there is ages of history. All of which give unbeatable “bragging rights” on one’s Instagram feed.

It is impossible to list all the iconic, breath-taking and amazing locations in Nova Scotia that are picture perfect but we have attempted to detail the top three here so now all you need to do is hop on one of the many nonstop flights from the UK to Halifax and start snapping and sharing!

Peggy’s Cove: The World Famous lighthouse at Peggy’s Cove is one of the most photographed locations in Canada. Built in 1914 and measuring nearly 50ft tall, the structure is situated on an extensive granite outcrop at Peggy’s Point, overlooking the nearby picturesque fishing village of Peggy’s Cove. A perfect square for that all important mosaic gallery!

Old Town Lunenburg: Old Town Lunenburg is one of Nova’s Scotia’s UNESCO World Heritage Sites. With its narrow streets, unique colourful architecture and picturesque waterfront it is perfect to increase those double tap likes! Its long proud seafaring history, historic charming bed and breakfasts and world-class seafood will ensure it makes it not only onto the ‘Insta story highlights’ but also into the hearts of those that visit.

SkyLine Trail, Cape Breton: Located in Cape Breton Highlands National Park the landscape of the Skyline Trail offers no better way to demonstrate the true sense of #nofilter. Not only is there dramatic headland cliff and rugged coast views but visitors can spot whales in the Gulf of St Lawrence and may be lucky enough to see bald eagles, bears, and numerous boreal birds that live in the area. However don’t be surprised if the urge to share on social is forgotten and the magic of the moment becomes more important than followers or re-grams!
