Presented by the Department of Natural Resources in Nova Scotia, Canada, this site takes the visitor on a picturesque trip through the province of Nova Scotia. Through the use of breathtaking aerial photographs and closer views of geological features, this site is a geologist’s gold mine of information. Some of the locations of exploration include:
  • Halifax Harbor and the Atlantic Uplands
  • Hants lowlands
  • Five Islands
  • Wittenburg Mountain
  • Gibraltar Rock
  • Lismore
  • Northumberland Strait coast and Cape George
  • Chedabucto Bay
  • Strait of Canso
  • Cape Breton
  • Gulf of St. Lawrence
  • St. Georges Bay


For each ‘stop’ of your journey, the images are accompanied by informative text that not only gives visitors a geographical description of the destination but also provides an in-depth geological explanation of the stop. The “Summary for non-geologists” is perfect for the lay-person to develop an understanding of the geology of Nova Scotia


Before you finish your tour, be sure to stop by the “Passing Views” and “Vistas of the Month” pages for more splendid views of the land as well as the “Reading Material” and “Links” sections of the home page. 


Effortlessly navigate through this site and expand your knowledge of geology and Nova Scotia.
