Experience Halifax’s newest water adventure

Located on the world’s second largest natural harbour, Halifax has the perfect mixture of big city amenities and small-town charm. A modern, vibrant city with a deep sense of history and culture, Halifax is Nova Scotia’s capital city, home to Canada’s east coast navy and Nova Scotia’s marquee port of call for visiting cruise lines. The largest city in Atlantic Canada, Halifax’s small downtown core is easy to explore by foot, harbour or city tour. Read more.
Kejimkujik National Park & National Historic Site
Kejimkujik goes green with new investments to Solar Energy Infrastructure – Funded through the federal Greening Government Fund, a centralized photovoltaic (PV) array will offset camper electrical consumption by 100% in Jeremy’s Bay Campground! Visitors looking to help offset their footprint can also access electric vehicle (EV) charging stations.
New multi-use trail! Ukme’k Trail (pronounced “ook-may-k”), meaning ‘twisted’ in Mi’maw, meanders along the Mersey River connecting the campground with popular day-use areas. Designed to be shared, visitors will enjoy 6.3 km of twists and turns with optional mountain bike features. The recently completed new permanent Mill Falls Bridge and the inclusive rainbow crosswalk are just two new features to experience. Rentals available onsite at Whynot Adventure, the Keji Outfitters.
Head to the Atlantic coast and Kejimkujik Seaside for a coastal experience that will leave you breathless. This part of Kejimkujik offers a wild and isolated stretch of coastline with white sand and turquoise water. Hike the Harbour Rocks Trail and explore one of the most scenic beaches along Nova Scotia’s south shore. The newly revitalized Port Joli Head Trail reopens in June following extensive trail work that will help mitigate against future damage caused by climate change.
Fat biking within the Cliffs of Fundy UNESCO Geopark
Home of Mi’kmaq people and early settlers, the highest recorded tides in the world and lush vineyards, the Bay of Fundy is also a great place to go on a series of exploration adventures.
Check out the latest addition to Local Guy Adventures offering which can take you fat biking on the ocean floor while passing by sea stacks and sandstone arches carved by the tides. Well used old-growth forest trails lead to the rugged coast where you glide along the ocean floor passing sculpted rock formations and ripples in the sand left by the tides!
