On the Road in Canada – Lunenburg, NS

We have arrived in Lunenburg, one hour south of Halifax, and this is the last leg of our trip. By now we have already driven more than 3.000 km, and have spent loads of money, and have two more days to go.

We were very fortunate to secure a spacious apartment with a terrace overlooking the waterfront. There is nothing better than stepping outside early in the morning, with a cup of coffee in hand. Well, you might prefer something else.

In addition, our vacation rental was right around the corner from the best restaurant in town,  The Great Dane. I have to admit we did not even try any other restaurants after our first visit there. More about their food and service in another post.

The Lunenburg harbor has a lot to offer in terms of whale watching boat trips, sailing trips, etc. The little red house on the left side of the photo sells tickets almost all day.

The colored houses and buildings reminded me of my trips to the Faroe Islands and Iceland.

Another highlight was the two-hour sailboat tour we took. We had so much fun! Very recommendable. When the saw this boat, we booked our tickets for the next afternoon.

Lunenburg was definitely the best town we stayed in. The scenery, our accommodation, the restaurant The Great Dane, and the sailboat tour made it the most memorable for us.
