Overview

Nova Scotia is home to the largest number of lighthouses in Canada, but none are more historic or picturesque than those of Isle Madame. This guided driving and walking tour shines a light on our history and geography. Ramble along coastal trails to lighthouses past and present; hear stories of the lightkeepers, shipwrecks, and John Paul Jones’ visit to Arichat.

Tours are available daily; cycling tours are available Saturday; reservations are required. 

Tours are operated in support of the Isle Madame Lighthouse Preservation Society.
