Best time to visit Nova Scotia

The best time to visit Nova Scotia is undoubtedly summer. The warm temperatures of July and August are perfect for seeing all that Nova Scotia offers. This season is when most visitors come to this Canadian province, but the “crowds” are not like those in other parts of the world, which makes for an enjoyable and relaxed visit.

Spring (May and June) Flowers begin to decorate Nova Scotia's landscapes and the temperature begins to rise to about 20°C.

Fall (September and October) This is the ideal time to enjoy hiking activities in Kejimkujik National Park thanks to the incredible fall foliage.

Winter (November to April) Temperatures drop between 5°C and -15°C and not many visitors are expected, which causes prices to drop, although not many accommodations and attractions open their doors at this time.
