Package: Peggy's Cove Hike & Town Tour
Wed, May 4, 2016 to Sat, Oct 29, 2016
Home to a year round population of a mere 60 people, the little fishing village of Peggy's Cove is one of the most photographed places in Canada.
There is no shortage of history and eerie tales about this rugged exposed cove. Over the years, the residents have had their share of ups and downs, including the tragedy of Swiss Air Flight 111.
Join us as we venture through a landscape transformed some 12,000 years ago by glaciers. Hiking through the coastal barrens we will learn about the unique vegetation in this area and the wildlife that calls the barrens their home. Keep your camera handy as you never know when you may spot a whale or seals playing just off the coast here.
You'll learn about our first settlers, the Mi'kmaq people who lived entirely off the natural resources that mother nature provided, the delicate and unique flowers that grow in this stark landscape and enjoy a healthy picnic lunch by the rugged Atlantic coast - all prepared by your guides with local ingredients, including various fruits, vegetables, breads, cheese, dips, pepperoni and smoked salmon (vegetarian and vegan friendly).
