Few things are quite as awe-inspiring as looking at the night sky. Here are some of the best stargazing opportunities in Nova Scotia.

Baxters Harbour

Head to this small fishing village along the Bay of Fundy to see some of the most stunning night views. The illuminated sky combined with the sound of the waves is about as relaxing as it gets.

View the stars at the luxurious Trout Point Lodge in the Acadian Shore region. The lodge has been selected as the world’s first Starlight hotel by the Starlight Foundation, which is backed by UNESCO. The lodge was chosen for its status as one of the best stargazing spots in North America. Onsite astronomers offer guided stargazing excursions and daytime interpretations of the sun using a daytime telescope.

Peggy’s Cove

Tourists arrive by the busload to visit Peggy’s Cove during the day, but locals know that the time to go is at night when the stars come out. Just be careful not to get too close to the rocky edge! Every year, people die after slipping on the rocks, so stay on the main area to be safe.
