Forage for wild foods while learning about the unique Acadian Forest ecosystem.
On the southern edge of the Tobeatic Wilderness Area sits Trout Point Lodge, with a true devotion to ecotourism. Experience nature in a new and interesting way by taking an edible hike. Our naturalist will guide the way through the pristine forest exploring bogs, marshes and around the edge of Tusket River. Discover new delicacies you never knew existed, such as wild cranberries, root vegetables and mushrooms, all from the Acadian Forest around you. Back at the lodge enjoy a culinary treat, cooking the bounty you have foraged. It's a truly unique way to experience the land with all of your senses, especially taste, within the UNESCO Southwest Nova Biosphere Reserve.
Part of the Trout Point Cooking & Wine School--offering culinary vacation experiences since 2000.
