Spend 7 days hiking along the Canada's wonder of Nature - the Bay of Fundy.
The Bay of Fundy – Canada's New7Wonder of Nature finalist has tides as high as 50 feet - the highest in the world, and teems with so much life that hundreds of whales gather here to feed every summer.
This adventure explores the coast in exciting ways. Begin with a hike along the Acadian dykes built to protect rich farmland from the tremendous tides. Float on inner tubes or swim in sun-warmed water near the small university town of Wolfville. Hike to a cliff-top view over the currents and whirlpools below, and descend to explore pristine beaches where agates and sparkling amethysts are the gifts of the wave-wracked rocks.
Follow the shore of Minas Basin to Parrsboro, where Mi'kmaq legends tell of the mighty Glooscap’s magic. From Parrsboro, hike to waterfalls cascading off the Cobequid Mountains, or in Cape Chignecto Park. Take to the water in sea kayaks, for an amazing discovery of the Three Sisters, before a final visit to the Joggins Fossil Cliffs World UNESCO Heritage site.
This adventure takes you to less-visited parts of Nova Scotia, and teaches you about one of the natural world’s greatest phenomena.
$2,295 per person includes 7 days/6 nights, 6 breakfasts, 7 lunches, 4 dinners, museum and park entrance fees, luggage handling, full-time guide and van support, maps and route notes.
