Lighthouse Route Tourism Book


See the influences of the sea in all aspects of the daily life. Discover authentic villages, historic towns, white sandy beaches, island-studded bays and famous lighthouses. Visit Peggy's cove where the waves crash upon the rugged granite stones and you can mail a postcard from the only post office located in a lighthouse.

The Lighthouse trail journeys through an unforgettable landscape of coastal beauty and historic charm. Follow coastal roads past rugged, wave-carved headlands and tranquil, island-studded bays. Discover weathered fishing villages where the rhythm of life moves in harmony with the tides.

A place where the past is a part of everyday life, where ox teams still haul lumber, where fishermen still row wooden dories. Explore historic towns like Liverpool, with its privateer legends, and UNESCO World heritage site Lunenburg, where a working blacksmith still plies his trade amidst the beautifully preserved buildings of the old town district. Lighthouse.... yes over twenty of them, from Yarmouth's towering Cape Forchu light, to the dramatic beauty of the famous lighthouse at Peggy's Cove.
