Information not currently available.
Approximately 3½ Hours
Visit two of Halifax's most popular landmarks -- scenic Peggy's Cove village and the Fairview Lawn Cemetery -- the final resting place of 121 passengers of the Titanic.
Your expedition begins with breathtaking views from wooded coastal roads as you travel along the Lighthouse Route on the way to the historic community of Peggy's Cove.
See the picturesque Peggy's Cove Lighthouse, which has been an inspiration for generations of writers, photographers and painters. And don't miss the famous deGarthe Monument, which artisan William deGarthe carved in the coarse stone. Take time to explore the shops and galleries around this working fishing community before returning to town via St Margaret's Bay.
Back in Halifax, at the Fairview Lawn Cemetery, follow your kilted guide on a walk through the grounds as (s)he brings to life the tale of the great ship Titanic and its ill-fated maiden voyage. Discover the true identities of the unknown child and J. Dawson -- both recovered from the icy waters of the Atlantic Ocean. Their stories are part of a legacy that continues to fascinate visitors more than a century after the Titanic sank.
Transfer time to and from Peggy's cove is 60 min each way. One hour will be spent in Peggy's Cove for the lobster demonstration and some free time. For safety, visitors are asked to stay off the rocks and away from the shoreline. You will encounter gravel pathways, paved areas, wooden decking, cement sidewalks, inclines, steps and rocky areas. Wear sturdy, comfortable footwear and a warm sweater; bring an umbrella and a rain jacket.
