Tourism Nova Scotia has launched a new contest that encourages Nova Scotians and Atlantic Canadians to get out and explore the province and support local businesses.

The Ultimate Nova Scotia Road Trip contest invites people to post photos of themselves enjoying one, or as many possible, of 25 quintessential Nova Scotia activities – from whale watching to indulging in a late night donair – for a chance to win an incredible local getaway.

To enter the contest, participants post photos on Facebook or Instagram of themselves enjoying activities featured on the contest scorecard and include the hashtags #NSRoadTrip and #NovaScotiaNice. For each photo posted to social media using the hashtags, participants are entered to win the ultimate prize: a personalized trip including 6 nights/7 days anywhere in the province (as listed on The more activities people take part in, the more photos they post, the more chances they have to win.

The contest runs from August 23 to October 11. Get the details at
