Description & Services
Discover Historic Lunenburg, Nova Scotia in a magical carriage ride through town.  
Your 35-minute tour leaves from the waterfront, goes up to the top of our beautiful town and down again via a different route. We weave our way back and forth through the streets so that the horses don't have to go up any of the steep hills. 
The town of Lunenburg has more than three hundred historic homes dating back to the 18th and 19th centuries. Our churches are some of the oldest in North America. Lunenburg Academy, our famous "castle-on-the-hill" school, dates back to 1895 and the view from its location is absolutely breathtaking. 
Our drivers' commentary will keep you on the edge of your seat with all sorts of historical and community information. But we have the most fun sharing legends and special stories. Sometimes the horse even has a joke to tell!!! Your satisfaction is always guaranteed. 
The tour is very laid back. It is not uncommon to meet some of the local folks along the way and, from time to time, they too will have a story to tell… and, of course, a treat for the horse! 
We are so proud that people often describe our tour as a "must do" activity - for both visitors and locals! 
Please do join us for fun and memories you won't soon forget. 
Hours Tours run daily (approx. May-Oct) Mon-Thurs and Sat-Sun from 10am until about 30 minutes before dusk. Note: Our horses have rainy days and Fridays off.
