What you'll do

The sea has always been a deep and generative source of narrative inspiration, and nowhere is that clearer than in Nova Scotia. Over the course of six days, we’ll wade through the mythos, mysteries, and oral histories spun along these shores, hearing from various local voices and perspectives. From a poetry reading in Halifax to an exploration of precolonial history—and perhaps even a shoreside sea shanty or two—travelers will cast an ear to the pulsing maritime melodies, history, and lore that flow through the veins of this lively coastal province. Bring an appetite for stories, and more generally, an appetite, as we’ll be sampling some exceptional seafood along the way. This trip is offered by Atlas Obscura. Once you've reserved your spot, our team will be in touch to help you prepare for the trip. Please note that flights to and from Halifax are not included in the trip cost. This trip is limited to 12 travelers.
