    Board your motor coach and brace yourself as you set out on a South Shore Adventure of Nova Scotia! Visit Peggy’s Cove, Lunenburg and Mahone Bay and discover their colourful houses, museums, art galleries, souvenir shops, cafe’s and restaurants. This tour will demonstrate the beautiful diversity of the South Shore and allows you free time to plot your journey at each location, whether you want to savor the local foods and atmosphere in one of the cafe’s/restaurants, buy souvenirs, or just mosey along viewing the impressive sites and taking pictures, the choice is yours!


    At Peggy's Cove, discover why this picturesque seaside village with its stately lighthouse has been an inspiration to artists and writers for generations. It is here that the power and majesty of the Atlantic Ocean truly comes to life along the granite shores of the Cove - worn and shaped through the crashing surf.


    Continuing on, you will arrive at another extraordinarily scenic area, Old Town Lunenburg. Established in 1753, it is North America’s best surviving example of a planned British colonial settlement. The original layout and appearance has been retained so faithfully that UNESCO designated Lunenburg a World Heritage site. During free time, you can explore the brightly colored Old Town, which is easy to navigate because the streets follow a rectangular grid pattern designed in Britain. You can expect to see 18th-century wooden buildings and perhaps a replica of the Bluenose, Canada’s legendary racing ship that was launched here in 1921. Finally, we will visit Mahone Bay, considered to be one of the most attractive towns in Canada. This small and friendly community is renowned for the view across the Bay of three prominent churches. Take time to explore the many varied and local offerings along lovely Main Street before relaxing on the return drive to the Port of Halifax.

    Dzibilchaltun Mayan Ruins

    Explore the ruins of a Mayan civilization that flourished for thousands of years and then swim in the crystal-clear waters of a nearby natural sinkhole, known as a cenote. more...

    After departing from the pier, you will enjoy a picturesque drive inland to the magnificent ruins at Dzibilchaltun. Until the arrival of the Spanish, the Mayans lived here for about 3,000 years. The site is considered to be the longest functioning city of the Mayan world.


    Archaeologists have found thousands of structures here, although not all of them have been excavated. The name Dzibilchaltun translates to “place with writings on the stones,” and these messages reflect life in the ancient world.


    Of all the buildings, the Temple of the Seven Dolls is the most impressive, certainly with regard to astronomy. The temple is oriented so that the doorways fill with light as the sun rises on the spring and fall equinoxes, to mark the planting and harvesting seasons.


    During excavation, seven dolls were found in the temple and are now displayed in an on-site museum. Other artifacts include stone tablets, Spanish armor and items from the Catholics who later tried to convert the inhabitants to Catholicism. A 16th-century church made with stones from various buildings also lies in ruins on the grounds.


    After exploring Dzibilchaltun, you will have the opportunity to take a refreshing swim in a nearby cenote, a natural sinkhole that formed centuries ago when limestone on the surface collapsed, exposing the groundwater underneath. Following this unforgettable adventure, you will rejoin your coach and return to the pier.

    GL-Traditional Irish Bread Making

    Belfast, Northern Ireland

    Duration 4 hrs

    Watch a renowned baker prepare traditional Irish soda bread in her 18th-century home and participate in the fun, if you like.


    After departing from the pier, you will settle in for a spectacularly scenic drive towards Strangford Lough, a large inland sea that is one of the most naturally beautiful areas in County Down. Here, on the banks of the lough, you will stop at an 18th-century thatched-roof farmhouse that is Tracey Jeffery’s home.


    Jeffery is a patissier whose passion is making bread. During your visit, Jeffrey and a local baker will show you how to prepare and bake Irish soda bread. You will be welcome to put on an apron and join in or simply watch while enjoying a cup of tea.


    Although the Irish didn’t invent soda bread, it has become synonymous with Ireland and Northern Ireland. The oldest reference to a soda bread recipe was published in 1836 in County Down, so it is only natural that you will learn to make soda bread right here.


    The ingredients are simple: flour, baking soda, buttermilk and salt. The preferred flour is soft wheat, also known as cake flour. Even though there aren’t many ingredients, recipes vary depending on the amount of each ingredient. There are gluten-free varieties and soda breads that are grilled in iron skillets instead of baked.


    Soda bread doesn’t last long and families typically bake fresh loaves every few days. Jeffery’s bread won’t last long either, as you will be given delicious samples to taste.

    Experience Bruges like a local by exploring areas off the beaten path but still in the shadow of landmarks such as Kruispoort. Although you will stop at this 15th-century gate, the sites that lie ahead will reveal a lesser-known but not less spectacular side of Bruges. You will see windmills along medieval ramparts, follow atmospheric lanes through residential neighborhoods and pause at the bridges and inner canals that gave Bruges its nickname, the Venice of the North. Upon arriving in St. Anne’s, you will behold the Jerusalem Chapel, which was designed to mirror the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem. By the 16th century, Bruges had become a textile center for woven lace, and you will observe a demonstration of this artisan trade that continues to flourish. Another way to become immersed in local life is at the Markt, a sprawling square that has been a marketplace for more than 1,000 years.


    HIGHLIGHTS:
    • Explore atmospheric areas of Bruges that are typically unknown to all but the locals.
    • Cross landmark canals that gave Bruges its nickname, the Venice of the North.
    • Watch a demonstration of lace making, a trade that has flourished in Bruges for centuries.

    Enjoy an enlightening introductory walk through Nanortalik, the southernmost town in Greenland. more...

    Enjoy an enlightening introductory walk through Nanortalik, the southernmost town in Greenland. Founded in 1797, Nanortalik is the country’s 10th-largest town despite having only about 1,350 residents. Even the translation of its name, which means “the place with polar bears,” indicates that nature not people rules supreme.


    For an authentic glimpse into daily life in this rather remote town, you will see the local school, police station and fire department. As you walk about, the guide will describe in detail the challenges and joys of living in Nanortalik. You will also browse the open-air museum in old town, a collection of colonial-era buildings such as turf huts that reflect the area’s history. Inside, you will find exhibits of model boats, leather clothing able to withstand harsh conditions and fishing gear that the indigenous Inuits use. It is believed that the Inuits were among the Arctic people that invented the kayak about 4,000 years ago.

    Gain a greater understanding of Northern Ireland and its culture by following a foodie guide through Belfast, pausing every so often to sample classic dishes and delicacies.


    After departing from the pier, you will soon reach the heart of Belfast, where you will commence a walking tour, accompanied by a local food enthusiast. The exact locations to be visited will be determined the day of the excursion, but they will definitely be establishments that best represent the cuisine of Northern Ireland. These will be the markets, restaurants and cafés that the locals frequent, rather than those typically found in guide books.


    You may well start at St. George’s Market, the oldest covered market on the entire island of Ireland. While browsing the stalls and soaking up the atmosphere, you will sample delicacies that are distinctly Irish. You may be offered a chunk of fried eel or a bite of Belfast bap, a hearty sandwich typically loaded with Irish bacon, scrambled eggs and cheddar cheese.


    Continuing on to other foodie locales, you might try a few spoonfuls of colcannon, a mixture of mashed potatoes, cabbage, cream and butter. Of course, potatoes appear in all sorts of classic dishes such as Irish stew, Ulster fry and boxty, a tasty potato pancake.


    Other Irish staples that you may sample include fluffy soda bread and wheaten farls. The latter is a griddle cake that is served in quarters known as farls.
