The Total Tidal Package

The Total Tidal Package - Exploring Nova Scotia's Bay of Fundy

Every now and again an opportunity comes along that you just can’t pass up.  I was offered the sweet gig of hosting three travel writers on a five-day adventure along Nova Scotia’s Bay of Fundy.  The itinerary involved Mi’kmaq legends, dinosaurs and fossils, sea kayaking, a coalmine tour, a visit to a maple sugar camp, tidal bore river rafting, great food and accommodations and even rug hooking!

Foraging for wild mushrooms along Nine Mile River hiking trails

I wondered what was a good spot to explore in between Oakfield Provincial Park and Shubenacadie Wildlife Park. The area of Enfield and Elmsdale initially grew in the 1820's due to the railroad boom and the Shubenacadie Canal. We zoned in an area nine miles (16 kms) from Shubenacadie to explore at the Nine Mile River Multi-Use Trails.
