I plan on visiting Nova Scotia next Spring, I am currently wondering how to get there and especially how to move around. I am starting in Montreal.
By plane it's pretty expensive and then it's not easy to move around.
By train it's not much cheaper even though I can see the landscapes on the way.
By car it seems all right, the bad thing is the time it takes to get there and the price (but we are 2 so it's not so bad). It also allows to visit a lot of places on the way, and explore the area.
By bus it allows to see the landscapes, and if we plan it we can stop on the way and explore a minimum of the area. But it's not that cheap, Orleans Express and Acadian Bus have pretty high prices. I was expecting they had a bus pass but they don't seem to offer it.
We are a bit flexible. Does anyone have experience or advice about that? If there is a popular way to travel over there (hitch-hiking, kayaking, riding moose ...)?
