Few places in the world offer such geological diversity as Nova Scotia, on display in breathtaking sea cliffs from Cape Fourchu to Aspy Bay. Visited by explorers and geologists from around the world for centuries, Nova Scotia′s geological sites are now recognized for their beauty as much as for their stories of Earth history. Many of these locations are also the sites of some of our iconic lighthouses, built on rocky precipices that reach out into the sea, while others can be enjoyed at our Provincial Parks or at privately managed destinations. Walk, hike, drive or kayak Nova Scotia′s most spectacular geoheritage sites: the opportunities are as deep as time itself.
