Outdoor adventuring in Nova Scotia
History and culture of Mi’kmaq people, their ways of life and activities, the Halifax tragedy and other ancient facts can be fascinating and leave you dumbfounded. However, if you do not exercise your freedom of movement which you are entitled to on your visit to NS, then you’ll have wasted that vacation.
Outdoor events in NS are full of fun, thrilling and will definitely leave you rejuvenated with their power of spontaneous adventurous activities, which helps you rediscover yourself.
First things first, take a stroll along the shores on the rocky coastal trail. At some point you need to stop and marvel at the great expanse of the sea. If you don’t have a digital camera, you must be a lazy planner. As you feel the breeze you need to be marveling at the beautiful blue waters and taking shots of the tides and currents.
Continue with your stroll but I would greatly suggest you extend your hike to the waters. Get a kayak and paddle along the safe canal along the coast or maybe down the non-turbulent meandering river and experience the routes the Mi’kmaqs used to navigate in these waters, hundreds of years ago.
You need to be taking shots of the cliffs or just sightseeing as you raft down the water. The cliffs are packed with fossils dating thousands of years back, hence sparkling international recognition. Raft past the tidal waves of Bay of Fundy. Here you will be taken back to history as you explore shipwrecks. Don’t forget to enjoy the spectacular views of glacial rocks.
Your day must be coming to an end and the best way to take it down is by spending the evening on one of the numerous campgrounds or cottages along the coast. Lying on these cottages and watching the beautiful sunsets of NS is in itself an overwhelming experience. Afterwards you need to satisfy your hunger with some grilled freshly caught trout over an open bonfire.
Some other activities you could schedule the following day include cycling along the old cities and meeting the people of this great place. Maybe you could do dome golfing, or if you need some more thrilling water adventure you could go with surfing, sport fishing or whale watching or simply you spend the day sailing.
Whatever you choice, take photos of this great place to share of the fun, adventure and experiences with friends and family when you get back home.
