Over two weeks, we explore the history, highlands & dramatic coastline of Canada’s Nova Scotia. Meeting in Halifax, our first walks are on the Bay of Fundy, which has the highest tidal range in the world. Here we hike along the cliff-top to Cape Split and on the ocean floor (tide permitting) at Five Islands Provincial Park. Century-old dykes, built to protect rich farmland, lead us to the Grand Pre National Historic Site, a monument to the history of the Acadian people. From Parrsboro, we hike along the Kenomee Canyon in Economy River then take to the water in sea kayaks (optional) to explore the Three Sisters. We transfer to Nova Scotia's northern treasure, Cape Breton, an island which has inspired musicians, artists, and inventors since it was first settled by Europeans centuries ago. You may feel similarly inspired, as we follow trails along coastlines, through valleys, and to dramatic viewpoints in Cape Breton Highlands National Park. Alongside walks on both east and west coasts, we also visit Baddeck. Alexander Graham Bell chose to settle here because of its simple natural beauty and we visit the museum to learn about his astonishing discoveries. We then follow the coast to Mabou, a seemingly quiet village renowned for its music and having the only single malt distillery outside Scotland. A final dramatic hike along coastal hills at Sight Point completes our time before we return to Halifax. Enjoy this adventure to the less-visited areas of Nova Scotia and consider extending your time to enjoy the Autumn leaves of the Maritime states.
