Sunrise Trail, Nova Scotia


There's a special feeling of welcome all along the Sunrise Trail. It's a part of everything, from the warmth of the gentle surf that caresses our broad sand beaches to the friendly smiles you'll meet everywhere you go.

Come follow the sparkling Northumberland Shore through a land of gently rolling beauty, where country roads wind through lush green valleys, and each new rise offers an unforgettable panorama of land and sapphire sea.

Good food and festivals are our specialty. Celebrate our rich Scottish heritage at the world-famous Highland Games in Antigonish, or get swept away by the captivating magic of bagpipes, fiddles and traditional dancing at a gathering of the clans. We have a wealth of local festivals and events and, if you love to eat, you'll find special festivities celebrating our blueberries, fine wines and the delicious lobsters of the Northumberland Strait.

There's a friendly, home-town flavour all along the Sunrise Trail, and each town has its own unique delights waiting to be discovered. Gracious inns, B & B's and Hotels and Motels offer a home away from home. There are fine restaurants, colourful shops and art galleries, as well as museums, summer theatre, and even a fine arts centre.
