Wed, Jun 1, 2016 to Mon, Sep 5, 2016
If you dream of an active holiday with abundant and varied combination of activities, this is a perfect choice. All ages will revel in youthful excitement. The pace of van support is adjusted to suit whether the group includes teenagers and adults, or children 15 and under.
By day, you will explore fascinating new places, by bicycle, seakayak, canoe, and on foot. You will visit a park where footpaths connect with tunnels to sea caves. You can enjoy learning the fundamentals of sailing, seakayaking, and canoeing. You will learn about the world’s highest tides, and will make frequent stops for swimming and playing on the shore. You will be entertained with graveyard stories, roller-coaster rides, and a visit to Canada’s original European fur-trading post, to learn about the early conflicts between English, French, and Native Americans. Visit Grand Pré, and learn about how Cajun food evolved from an early European argument over the new world.
When the river is running, you will spend an afternoon floating through the countryside on large inner tubes warmed by the sun. Feast on fresh fruit and berries, as well as lobster and lollipops. You will be amazed by the history and harvest, and refreshed by the fresh air and fun.
By night, you will lodge at places chosen for their high level of service, their beautiful and spacious grounds, and their abundance of compelling interests for people of all ages. You will sleep in the world heritage seaport of Lunenburg; in a lodge on the beach; in an historic inn in Canada’s oldest town, and in the Acadia University town of Wolfville. If you like a variety of activities every day, whatever your age, this is the adventure experience you must have!
