Halifax Region

As Atlantic Canada’s entertainment and cultural capital, Halifax is a melding of old and new worlds. Modern office towers of glass and steel stand beside historic buildings that once stored the booty of privateers. Located on the second largest natural harbour in the world, life here revolves around the sea and the surrounding areas offer plenty of fun activities on land, water and in the air……one of life’s few places where you can enjoy urban flair and coastal retreats all in the same day! Halifax truly is a vibrant urban centre resting on the edge of nature.
