The largest city on Canada's eastern coastline, Halifax boast a rich maritime history and occupies a strategically important location with one of the world's greatest natural harbors.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Halifax: Clam Harbour Beach (in Clam Harbour), Peggy's Cove (Swissair Flight 111 Memorial, Peggy's Cove Lighthouse, & more) and Lunenburg (Fisheries Museum of the Atlantic & St. John's Anglican Church). And it doesn't end there: take in nature's colorful creations at Halifax Public Gardens, stroll through Point Pleasant Park, take an in-depth tour of Canadian Museum of Immigration at Pier 21, and sample the tasty concoctions at Alexander Keith's Brewery.

Plan my trip to Halifax with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.

Bogota, Colombia to Halifax is an approximately 12-hour flight. You'll lose 1 hour traveling from Bogota to Halifax due to the time zone difference. Prepare for a bit warmer weather when traveling from Bogota in July: high temperatures in Halifax hover around 26°C and lows are around 17°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 2nd (Fri) to allow enough time to travel to Pointe-au-Pere.
