Peggy's Cove

  Begin with a drive along Nova Scotia 's famous Lighthouse Route , a beautiful coastal drive that takes you past picturesque coastal villages and inlets to the rugged fishing community of Peggy's Cove.  Our first stop will be at Nautel for a visit and tours of this unique facility.  Nautel is a global leader in the design, manufacture, sales and support of high power Radio Frequency (RF) products for AM and FM broadcast.  After this fascinating stop we will make our way to lunch (on own) where you will have an opportunity to enjoy some fresh, local seafood.

After lunch we continue down to Peggy’s Cove with its breathtaking location on a narrow, coastal inlet characterized by wave-worn granite boulders and crashing surf, it's easy to see why this charming little village is perhaps Canada 's most photographed site.  The lighthouse still serves as a beacon to fishermen and it once served as a post office with its own commemorative stamp.

 

Peggy's Cove has inspired artists the world over, including famous marine artist William deGarthe.  As a last memorial to the local fishermen, Mr. deGarthe worked on a 40-foot granite sculpture for seven years; however he pasted away before it was completed.  It was later finished by one of his sons.

 

From here travel up the road to Acadian Maple Products.  Although the season is long over you can visit the interpretive center to learn all about maple syrup. Daily video presentations will explain the production methods of maple syrup past and present. Learn about maple syrup grades, the harvest, the work involved.  Be sure to purchase some of those sweet treats.
