Fairytale Lunenburg

Lunenburg, a charming town on the Atlantic coast, has long been a Canadian mecca for lovers of sails, schooners, and tall ships. The world’s finest sailing vessels consider it an honour to grace this port if only to pay their respects to the iconic Bluenose-II and immerse themselves in the atmosphere of the good old seaside architecture and fishing life. It’s no surprise that the historic part of Lunenburg is designated as a UNESCO World Heritage site, celebrating its rich cultural and historical significance. So, after a brief stop in a quaint fishing village, we set course for Lunenburg, eager to meet the legendary Bluenose!
