Share Article

Tourism Week in Canada runs May 31 – June 6, 2015. In an effort to cultivate fresh social and economic benefits during this week, businesses across the region of Halifax, the province of Nova Scotia and Destination Halifax are inviting visitors to learn from locals though experiential packages.

“Experiential packages inspire travelers to learn by doing things with someone who lives here,” says Lynn Ledwidge, Director of Marketing, Destination Halifax. “It’s about getting a taste of authentic Nova Scotia alongside the people who know and love our province best.”

Packages cluster at least two offerings at a single price and point-of-purchase, such as an experience combined with an accommodation or meal.

“Visitors are at the centre of the action with experiential packages,” says Heather Yule, Acting Manager of Development, Tourism Nova Scotia. “They're connecting with local experts, artisans and places that differentiate Nova Scotia, then sharing these great memories with friends and family‎.”

From guided coastal hikes with picnic lunches to winery tours with cooking demonstrations, packages are tailored to diverse interests. Visitors can view available packages at http://www.destinationhalifax.com/plan-your-travel/packages and search by date range or key word.
