Soak In the Beauty of Atlantic Canada

With some 7,500 km (4,600 mi) of oceanfront, much of Nova Scotia’s outdoor recreation is water-based. Ocean kayakers can enjoy some of the most dramatic scenery in the world, with towering seaside cliffs, unique tide-shaped rock formations and quaint lighthouses and fishing villages, not to mention 3,800 coastal islands. Anglers can hire a local guide to sample some of the best ocean fishing found anywhere, while the rivers and lakes of the interior offer even more fishing action.

Heading to the province’s north end, the Cabot Trail winds its way around Cape Breton Highlands National Park, making for an incredibly scenic road trip and plenty of opportunities to get out and hike to a jaw-dropping viewpoint over the ocean. ATVers can explore a network of old roads and trails, while hunters can try their luck for big game like black bear, white-tailed deer or moose, plus a wide selection of waterfowl and game birds. Wildlife viewers have a plethora of marine species to check off their list, including numerous species of whale. And once winter hits, there are around 3,500 km (2,175 mi) of designated snowmobile trails to explore, and even downhill skiers and snowboarders can find some thrills at charming mountains like Ski Martock and Wentworth Ski Hill.

Whether you are paddling the shoreline of Kekimkujik National Park or just exploring the countryside from the comfort of your vehicle, our Backroad Mapbooks, GPS Maps, TOPO Maps and BRMB Navigator App are your ultimate guides to outdoor adventure in Nova Scotia.
