With its brightly coloured buildings lining the shore, Lunenburg is considered one of Canada’s most colorful postcard-perfect towns and is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site. We’ll have lunch overlooking the sailboat-filled harbour before riding some twists and turns along the route back to Halifax, passing through the small villages that add character to the Lighthouse Route.
