2024 is THE year to discover Nova Scotia

Nova Scotia in 2024

Celebrating blue-grass style music, featuring on National Geographic’s 2024 Cool List and offering new flights from Edinburgh are just some reasons why Nova Scotia, or New Scotland, as its name translates, could be the perfect travel destination for you.


Next year, the Congrès Mondial Acadien (Acadian World Congress) will be held in the villages at the southwest tip of the province. An event that hasn’t passed through here for over two decades, you can expect an up-tempo celebration and larger-than-life concerts featuring a diverse range of​ sounds, with the Acadians’ music heavily influenced by bluegrass. You can also enjoy dining on the finest seafood around, as traditional Aca​dian fare includes the coast’s rich larder of lobsters and scallops.


The province also made National Geographic’s 2024 Cool List,​ with the publication recognising Canada’s Ocean Playground for its thrillingly high tides, traditional lighthouses, and warm and welcoming Acadian culture​.


Even more reason to ​v​isit the Seabound Coast: Edinburgh airport will be connected to Halifax next summer by WestJet​—ONLY A SIX HOUR plane journey! The Halifax flight will operate three times a week from 21 June to 04 September.
