Lunenburg Tours

Lunenburg
Often considered to be one of Nova Scotia’s and Canada’s quaintest villages and a UNESCO World Heritage site, the port town of Lunenburg is one of the most popular tourist attractions in the country. As the finest example of planned British colonial settlement in Canada, the city holds great historical significance and its development played a major role in shaping Canada as we know it today. Lunenburg’s distinctive waterfront and historic core, which is a National Historic Site of Canada, consists of brightly painted fisherman houses, lively wharves, narrow alleys and picture-perfect architecture. 

The town’s proud seafaring history continues to be reflected in this dynamic and scenic waterfront – in fact, did you know that Nova Scotia’s fishing towns often painted their homes bright colors so as to be easily seen from the water? Some of the town’s most popular tourist attractions include the Nova Scotia Museum’s Fisheries Museum of the Atlantic, where visitors will learn about Nova Scotia’s seacoast heritage, about life on the open sea and about rum running during Prohibition. They will even walk the decks of traditional sailing ships and see how dories are made! But perhaps the most popular attraction of all is the Bluenose II, a replica of the famed and graceful fishing schooner which is often docked alongside the Lunenburg waterfront.
Lunenburg is located 100 kilometers (62 miles) southwest of Halifax. It can be reached by car via route 103 and 324 in 1 hour and 20 minutes. The town is best explored on foot and there is ample parking around the historic town center.
Address: 119 Cumberland St, Lunenberg B0J 2C0, Canada
