Nova Scotia, Canada

Nova Scotia is as remote as it is comparatively unpopulated, and if you want to get away from it all, this is the place to go. Halifax is the capital, and from here a long drive north will get you to Cape Breton Island, where the spectacular coastlines and abundant wildlife, including Black Bears and moose, abound.

For ornithologists, the bird life is impressive, and the sight of two Bald Eagles flying overhead of which one swooped down next to the boat to take fish is one to remember.  On the more remote and undisturbed sandy beaches, you may be lucky enough to see the threatened Piping Plover, Charadrius melodus, a species in decline due to loss of habitat.

Nova Scotia is famous for its fossil localities, and Joggins fossil cliffs with associated museums are an absolute must.

Canada is expensive, including the cost of fuel, and as driving anywhere is an absolute necessity, getting around is by far the costliest part of the trip. Nonetheless, the country is beautiful, the people friendly, and the seafood out of this world.
