Peggy's Cove Morning Light Tour
Picture Perfect Tours
109 Peggy's Point Road, Peggy’s Cove, B3Z 3S2, South Shore
Experience one of Canada's signature landmarks - the iconic lighthouse and dramatic landscape at Peggy's Cove - as the sun rises over the North Atlantic Ocean! On this exclusive morning tour, you'll be guided through the picturesque fishing village of Peggy's Cove with a professional photographer, who will help you capture some great images in the beautiful golden light of dawn. Early morning is one of the best times to visit this famous landmark, as it is quiet and you will feel like you have it all to yourself.
Your photographer guide will share photo insights, reveal their favourite vantage points and showcase some of the rich history of the area through archival images, maps, movies and photographs courtesy of the Nova Scotia Archives. No matter your skill level or interest in photography, the only thing you need to enjoy the tour is an open mind and a desire to see things differently.
Throughout the morning, we will explore the lighthouse area and 206 year old fishing village, view the renowned sculpture work of William deGarthe, and take a customized hike through the nearby, glacier-scarred coastal barrens to create a truly memorable experience of this must-see destination.
