Chowder Trail


The 2015 Chowder Trail features 61 chowders from across Nova Scotia.

What better way to taste Nova Scotia than to enjoy a bowl of seafood chowder. We take the finest seafood from our cold, clean waters and pair it with produce from our lush fertile valleys. Our chowders are warm and comforting, much like the character of our people. Every bowl tells the story of who we are and where we’re from.
