Win a trip to see the most amazing views in Canada courtesy of Swoop

Your vacation planning dreams can come grinding to a halt when you’re hit with ridiculously high airfare. What was supposed to be a fun trip back home can leave you carrying debt along for the ride, or derail your plans completely.

Well, that’s not what happens when you search with Canada’s new and only ultra-low cost carrier, Swoop. The no-frills airline is an independently operated affiliate of WestJet and they’re swooping in to make airfare more affordable, easy, and accessible for Canadians.

To celebrate Swoop’s arrival, we’re giving one lucky Daily Hive reader the chance to win round-trip flights for two (2) from Hamilton International Airport (YHM) to Halifax International Airport (YHZ).

And since winning free flights is the best possible reason to take an impromptu vacation, we’ve rounded up three things to do in Halifax when you arrive. (Basically, we’re helping plan your trip for you. You’re welcome.)

Visit Peggy’s Point Lighthouse

A trip to Nova Scotia isn’t complete without a visit to the quaint fishing village of Peggy’s Cove, where you’ll find an iconic lighthouse (one of the most photographed in Canada, for the record). The lighthouse was built way back in 1915 and when you visit it you’ll hear the waves crashing against the surrounding rocks as the Atlantic Ocean stretches out before your eyes. It’s quite magical.

Take in the cityscape from the rooftop of Halifax Central Library

You don’t have to visit a swanky rooftop bar to enjoy sweeping views of downtown Halifax and the surrounding area. Instead, visit the Halifax Central Library and make your way to the rooftop to read a book and crush on vistas of the downtown core and Halifax harbour. Besides, how often do you visit libraries with rooftop patios?

Hike to Nichols Lake Falls

The beautiful Nichols Lake is located just 25 minutes from downtown Halifax and it’s worth a visit on your vacation. Here you can enjoy hiking on a scenic trail during which you’ll see the lake and a gushing waterfall. It’s Insta-perfect.
