Description & Services

Discover Historic Lunenburg, Nova Scotia in a magical carriage ride through town. 
Your 35-minute tour leaves from the waterfront close to where the Bluenose is docked. The tour 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 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. 
We are 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 May - Oct., 7 days a week from 10am until 6 pm daily. Note: For the horses safety they have rainy days and extra hot days off.
