A 270-kilometre ocean bay extending from Nova Scotia to New Brunswick, the Bay of Fundy, which was a finalist in the New 7 Wonders Of Nature contest, and the corresponding Evangeline Trail are highly coveted Atlantic Canada cottage rental destinations.
The Evangeline Trail, a scenic roadway that follows the Fundy Coast, traverses colourful Acadian fishing villages and lush Annapolis Valley orchards and vineyards. As such, this region is especially attractive to food and wine enthusiasts: visitors can load up on wild blueberries, maple products and award-winning wines and feast on coastal cuisine celebrated for its lobsters, mussels, scallops, smoked salmon, and a popular local seaweed product called dulse. The area, which is part of the Western Hemisphere Shorebird Reserve Network, is famous for having the world’s highest tides, providing unique opportunities for marine life watching (including the finback whale, the world’s second largest animal!), tidal bore rafting and amethyst and fossil hunting. It is a naturalist's wonderland.
As a well-developed tourist hot spot just two hours’ drive northeast of Halifax, the Evangeline Trail and Bay of Fundy are popular places to rent a cottage in Nova Scotia.+ More
