TRIP DESCRIPTION

The best part of Nova Scotia's Lighthouse Route is that it so frequently follows the water’s edge. Quiet roads skirt myriad white-sand beaches, and there are many hidden coastal treasures. It is perfect for a gentle bike ride. Friendly people, fishing villages, secluded anchorages, boat builders, antique shops, artists’ hamlets, and beautiful beaches all contribute to the feeling of being in paradise. This is our home, and we love showing you the secret swimming holes, little-known cafes, and fantastic rides along obscure coastal stretches You can dine on lobster, swim in warm lakes or the cool ocean, feel the warm sand between your toes, and appreciate the cooling sea breeze in your hair. There are two nights in the UNESCO heritage township of Lunenburg, whose uniquely crafted architecture reflects skills of numerous shipbuilders and fishermen whose lifestyle built the town. You will cross the cable ferry to the beaches near LaHave; you can soak in the pool after your activities in the university town of Wolfville; and can venture on foot to two of the most spectacular headlands in the province. This is a perfect introduction to Nova Scotia’s coastal charms, and will show you why many visitors return again and again.

Note: You can extend your ride by another six days by adding the Fundy & Glooscap Bike trip. The last day of this adventure overlaps with the first of that. There is a 5% reward available for combining the two.
