RV Rentals Halifax

Halifax in Nova Scotia, Canada is known for its mild temperatures and beautiful beaches in the summer months. The settlement location is on the Atlantic Ocean but in a long inlet which is a natural harbour. This harbour is so popular that there is a 3 kilometre boardwalk called the Halifax Harbour walk where you can take a leisurely stroll around the harbour and see the small to midsized ships which are tied up to the many piers.

The capital city of Nova Scotia, and the largest of the metropolitan hubs in the Atlantic Provinces, Halifax is enjoyed for its natural harbour, considered one of the greatest anywhere on the planet, and rich maritime history, while it also boasts a strategic location.

Either Hiring an RV or a smaller camping car is often viewed as being essential in Halifax, given there is limited public transport. Tourists to Halifax may spend their days enjoying the nearby bays, the beautiful beaches and scenic drives along the highway year-round.

Suggested RV Rental Halifax Drives

St Margaret’s Bay:

Just an hour way and dotted with islands and small towns. St. Margarets Bay is a popular destination for sailing yachts whilst the shoreline is picturesque the beaches tend to be rocky but some good beaches are located on the eastern shore on Micou’s Island. Accommodation for recreational vehicles is found in Kentville, where the South Mountain Park Family Camping & RV Resort is located. Ovens Rd plays host to Ovens Natural Park. The park offers spectacular trails with views of the famous sea caves, or “Ovens” hence the name.

Highway 3:

A two-lane coastal highway that is beautifully scenic and full of twists and turns. Islands Provincial Park and Clyde River Cottages & Camp ground are popular with motorhome rental drivers who need to park up for the night.

Peggy’s Cove:

One of the more popular places to see is Peggy’s Cove. By having a campervan you can avoid the crowds and hassles of the tour companies and drive there yourself. It is located just southwest of Halifax and is the location of an historic lighthouse. This rural community is also an active fishing village where the main catch is lobster.

Unmistakeable because of its iconic lighthouse, which is still in use, stunning granite rocks and cliffs, Peggy’s Cove is reached via a scenic drive. The inhabitants of this rural community relay on fishing and tourism. The fishing is mainly for lobster and can sometimes be bought direct from the fisherman at the harbour, great for a fine dining barbecue. Stay at Wayside Camping Park or Woodhaven Park Camp ground.

Cape Split

This is now a national reserve park and contains a popular hiking trail that is 6 km long. At the coastline the view is of the Bay of Fundy. The park is mainly forest with 60 m cliffs where picnicking is very common. At this time, the park is only open during daylight hours and no camping is permitted.


Just south west of Peggy’s Cove is the UNESCO town of Lunenburg. The old town was established back in 1753 with the narrow streets and 70% of the homes and shops are dated back near this time. For those who like nautical history a replica of the famed Bluenose II racing schooner is tied up at the dock.

Compare The costs of Halifax Campervan Rentals Holidays

After a lot of research we booked through Andy at RVRentacampervan with excellent results. Being our first experience of a motorhome the supplier Fraserway were very understanding, returning emails promptly, arranging pickups and catering for a minor change of plans.We had no complaints with the motorhome that Frazerway provided and the service was more than adequate. The staff were friendly and efficient. We had one small accident with the plumbing but that was put down to wear and tear so no extra charges levied,

Thanks for a fantastic stress free holiday.
