Touring in a hire car: discover and explore Halifax
Head out of town in a hire car: Halifax is located in the east of Canada, directly on the Atlantic coast in the province of Nova Scotia. It is the home of Indian Summers, a world between nature and modernity that provides a unique blend of urban living and pastoral peace. A tour of discovery in a hire car gives you all the necessary flexibility and freedom of movement and is the ideal way of getting to know Halifax and the surrounding area. If you would like to visit Halifax and its sights, then you can’t do better than pick up a car from TUI Cars in Halifax and drive to the world's second largest natural harbour.
From there you continue to downtown Halifax. Thanks to its bridges and the steep streets, Halifax is often compared to San Francisco. However, Halifax has its own distinctive character. If you are looking to hire a car in Halifax, then you've come to the right place. Book your car with TUI Cars and arrange a pick-up at the car rental office of your convenience, at the airport or in the heart of this beautiful city.
Discover Halifax by car: the coast of lighthouses
If you are touring Halifax by car, they will often be your travel companions: small, picture book lighthouses on the fairy-tale coast. Lighthouses enjoy a tradition here, as shipbuilding and fishing have been among the most important industries in Canada for centuries. Along the coast of Nova Scotia there are more than 160 historical lighthouses waiting to be discovered - the most famous is Peggy's Cove Lighthouse, located in a small fishing village, perched on massive rocks where the waves of the Atlantic break. From Halifax you can reach Peggy's Cove in your hire car in about an hour. Already the drive from Halifax is a marvellous experience, leading past picturesque lakes and through scenic landscapes.
Coastal tours by car: Halifax and Lunenburg
In Nova Scotia you are spoiled for choice. Do you want to drive the hire car on a road trip through the emerging wine regions of the peninsula or would you rather go whale watching? Whatever you choose, a visit to the city of Lunenburg is a must if you are touring Halifax in a hire car. Head west out of Halifax in your hire car to reach Lunenburg on the NS-103W in about an hour and a half.
Already the first glimpse of the cityscape makes the heart beat faster: colourful wooden houses, old villas where captains lived when not at sea, narrow streets and the panoramic harbour where sailboats are moored. These pictures will be etched in your memory for a long time to come. Incidentally, Lunenburg is Canada's oldest German settlement with a long tradition of fishing and shipbuilding.
