Nova Scotia: Fundy & Glooscap

7 Days

The Bay of Fundy – a candidate for one of the new Seven Wonders of the World, 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 follows quiet roads around its perimeter on the Evangeline & Glooscap Trails, and gives you options to explore its nooks and crannies 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. Ride to a tiny harbour where you will see significant tidal change while you eat a lobster for lunch. If you like, you can choose to 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. Bicycle the Glooscap Trail to Parrsboro, where Mi'kmaq legends tell of the mighty Glooscap’s magic. From Parrsboro, ride to spectacular look-offs, and hike to waterfalls cascading off the Cobequid Mountains. At the end of the peninsula, near Cape Chignecto Park, you can ride to each end of the park trail, and if inclined, can hike some of the trail, or paddle seakayaks to the spectacular Three Sisters, before a nice, long final ride to the Joggins Fossil Cliffs, recently elected to the UNESCO list. This adventure takes you to less-visited parts of Nova Scotia, and teaches you about one of the natural world’s greatest phenomena.
