Discover some of the values associated with the World Heritage site and taste one of the richest culinary destinations in Nova Scotia. The tour includes a visit to Grand-Pré National Historic Site, an introduction to the World Heritage site, lunch at one of the wineries and a wine-tasting experience at the internationally acclaimed Benjamin Bridge winery.
- The architecture and traditions of Lunenburg
One of the earlier European settlements in Nova Scotia, it became Nova Scotia’s first World Heritage site for its architecture, site plan and the traditions associated with the once thriving fisheries. This tour includes a walking visit of the townsite, access to the Fisheries Museum, a sneak peak at the Bluenose, lunch and the Ironworks Distillery.
