Are you looking for things to do in Halifax, Nova-Scotia? This Scavenger Hunt takes you on a self-guided walking tour, with challenges through the heart of the city.

See all the sights while having fun and learning some history! You will walk from the Halifax Public Gardens to the Citadel, to the Port of Halifax, and back again. All the while, you’ll take numerous side trips to discover more sites while taking on various challenges. Our Halifax Tourist Scavenger Hunt was developed and tested in August 2018.

You will start your adventure either in front of the Public Gardens (start location 1), or at the Port of Halifax Terminal (start location 2). Follow the instructions on your smartphone to solve challenges and get instructions to your next destination. The challenges are varied in difficulty and types to keep you entertained. They’re good for all ages.

You should plan a good 2 hours for this activity, wear comfortable shoes and be certain your phone is fully charged. As well, you’ll need a data plan as WiFi will not be enough. Further, a street map and bottled water could come in handy.
