Rugged Headland and Historic Town Hike


Great E.A.R.T.H. Expeditions


Rates & Dates


We start our tour at Hirtle's Beach where our spectacular hike to Gaff Point begins. Our travels take us through a coastal forest and barren land as well as a number of coves where high rugged cliffs drop to the sea. A perfect place to spot whales and seals playing off the Atlantic coast.

The second half of the tour takes us to lovely Lunenburg. Designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1995, Lunenburg is one of the premier places to visit when traveling to Nova Scotia. With a rich history, unique architecture and brightly colored houses, this quaint little ocean side town will leave a lasting impression on you.

Let us enjoy a healthy picnic lunch prepared by your guides in the most perfect of town settings - on the shores of the harbour overlooking the reflections on the water from the most colourful of seaside houses.
