Home / Experiencing Wolfville

A cultivated experience for the mind, body, and soil

There's something about Wolfville that is satisfying to the furthest depths of your soul. We could try to define it by mentioning how our sustainability sensibility, blended with our intense sense of community make this place immensely livable. Or how our cosmopolitan but charming centre, blended with the wine country that surrounds us, provides all the finer things one looks for out of life. We could even point to the beautiful landscape--hills, valleys, rivers, and ocean coming together as the perfect wallpaper. But we find the best way to understand Wolfville is to experience it. And those who experience our town do not forget it.

Wolfville is situated in the North Western portion of Nova Scotia, along the shores of the Minas Basin which is part of the Bay of Fundy, home to the world's highest tides. The Town is separated from the Minas Basin by agricultural dykes which were built by Acadians in the 17th century. Wolfville experiences the Bay of Fundy's record setting tides each day as water fills and drains from the Wolfville Harbour, which is the world's smallest harbour.

You can find Wolfville along Highway 1, which is connected to Highway 101 at two interchanges approximately 4 kilometres east or west of Town limits. The Town has a geographic area of 7.31 square kilometres and is approximately an hour's drive from Halifax International Airport and Halifax, Atlantic Canada's largest city.
