Truly the home of the great outdoors, Nova Scotia is an awesome place to go and discover the very best of Canada’s beautiful nature. Whether you wish to hike a rocky coastal trail and stop and gaze out to sea. Maybe you’d prefer a paddle down a meandering river and imagine how the Mi’kmaq navigated these waters hundreds of years ago. The speed demons will love rounding a bend on a bike trail knowing there are still many miles to go.
Nova Scotia is defined by the water that surround it. Kayaking offers the perfect vantage to enjoy this magnificent island. From the dramatic cliffs of Cape Breton Island and Bay of Fundy to the gentle coves, inlets and historic harbours, sea kayakers will discover isolated beaches, diverse marine life, and even sea caves.
The stunning green vistas are packed with great walks, breathe in the salt air and explore the extraordinary coastline, from short leg stretches to longer hikes. With seaside trails, backcountry hikes and leisurely strolls, our trails cover a variety of terrain for all experience levels.
Each August through November, with its moderate temperatures and juicy hurricane season swell, Nova Scotia’s shores offer prime surfing time… but the hardcore thrill riders love those wicked waves of winter. Nova Scotia is a top year-round cold water surf destination!
For a true sense of adventure, escape to the back country in Nova Scotia’s amazing Provincial and National parks. Take in spectacular geological formations like the Three Sisters towering sea stacks or rare red sandstone formations from your walk-in campsite on the coastal trails of Cape Chignecto Provincial Park.
