One of our favourite things about summer is getting outside and setting off on a new adventure http://www.novascotia.com/explore/outdoor-adventure. Fortunately for us, there’s no shortage of adventures to be found. From an air adventure to ziplining, here’s some things to try – from A to Z. 

Backcountry Hiking & Biking at Kejimkujik

We spent two days deep in the backcountry of Kejimkujik National Park. The proposed route this year was 48 kms of hiking and/or biking across both the northern & southern portions of the park. Park users can travel one of three ways: hiking, biking & paddling. Our route focused on hiking & biking.

 

 

Year-round cycling

Outlandish as it seems, there's a place in the province where you could be shovelling your driveway one day and within the next 24-hours find yourself swinging onto the seat of your bike. Warm snaps are not uncommon during January and February in South West Nova Scotia.

My Nova Scotia Bucket List

Duncans Cove 2012.jpgLast spring I was talking with a friend from Ottawa who now calls Nova Scotia her home. We were discussing fun things to do for afternoon and weekend trips in Nova Scotia. I shared some ideas with her, and I could not believe how many things she had not tried or experienced yet. She told me she was going to start a Nova Scotia bucket list! I thought what a great idea; from all of the festivals, beaches, historical sites, food, music, tours, national and provincial parks, wild rugged coasts to beautiful inland treasures of all kinds, I couldn't wait to start my own.

 

Cycling with Sherbrooke as the Hub

Sherbrooke Village attracts more than 10,000 visitors each year but I was in town with my bike wanting to see some countryside. The temptation to photograph restored period buildings and animators at work did not sway me from my intentions. I left my car in the Sherbrooke Village parking lot and pedaled out of town toward Sonora.

The road goes about 10 kms paralleling the tidal portion of the St. Mary's River. The highlight of this jaunt, for me, was the new wharf. The wharf in Sonora is easy to locate at the end of a short dirt road. It juts out into the river, is very clean and provides an excellent opportunity for snapping some photos.

Terrific Guysborough County Cycling Loop

If a cycling tourist or tourists came to Guysborough County with the highly unfortunate limitation of having only one day to cycle here, I would be inclined to suggest this route as an excellent way to experience the area. It offers a sampling of everything that makes Guysborough County appealing.

Anyone seeking photographic opportunities will not be disappointed. There are still sheds, wharves and boats representative of the traditional inshore fishery that once thrived here. Evidence of modern lobster fishing was evident in many communities along Chedabucto Bay as well as those like Port Felix, Charlos Cove and Larry's River on the Atlantic side. Lower Whitehead, is just off the loop and offers many more chances to make great photos.
