Port of Louisbourg Shuttles
YPS airport transfers
Along Nova Scotia’s far northeastern peninsula, the Port of Louisbourg is an especially beautiful way to get to know the Gulf of St Lawrence, not only for its introduction to architectural wonders but vast array of local culture ranging from upscale seafood to traditional playhouses. Upon arrival to Louisbourg Harbour, cruise ships and their attendees can easily get to know the area by driving along the scenic Havenside Road. Guests arriving to the small shoreside town for the first time will find that public transportation is limited through a range of private rentals, from the simplicity of small sedans are ideal for showing up to coastline historic sites to a jumbo SUV perfect for bringing the whole family to distant parklands. Meet-and-greet services also add to the beauty through modest taxis best for arriving without commitment as well as local personal drivers who offer easygoing perspectives from the passerby angle.
When it comes to fully enjoying the day, rocky beaches from distant natural areas and in-town trails make an afternoon’s worth of adventure easy to come by - close landmarks along the harbour include the world-famous Fortress of Louisbourg National Historic Site on the far southwest side - an 18th-century village composed of historic brick-wood cottages and a surrounding wall made of extra rigid stone, the fortress is only as inspiring as its shined views of the Louisbourg Lighthouse across the bay, an ethereal landmark famous for being North America’s first fireproof lighthouse. At the center of town rest a flurry of boutique shops, local restaurants and old school entertainment - look through the guise of history with one of many shows at the historic Louisbourg Playhouse, admiring a combination of original plays and musical acts from within the towering wood-beamed structure, afterward sitting down for fresh seafood at the locally beloved Foggy Hermit Cafe.
