Cycling, Walking, and Kayaking Nova Scotia & PEI

Atlantic Canada provides a lot of variety in a small area, especially if you like coastal exploration. CNN just called it one of the world's top destinations. Nova Scotia is our home, we spent many summer cycling holidays in adjacent Prince Edward Island, and the Magdalen Islands are an amazing place for a cycling, sea kayak, or hiking tour. We invite you to come and explore them with us. Whether biking or walking along the sand dunes and through fertile farmlands of PEI and Les Iles de la Madeleine, hiking or cycling on Nova Scotia's Cabot Trail, or wending in and out of Nova Scotia's hidden coves and beaches by bicycle, sea kayak, or on foot, you're in for some special experiences!

If you are interested in planning your own cycling holiday in Nova Scotia, or if you are wondering what to expect along our routes, visit our Where to Cycle in Nova Scotia page for more information.
