Day 1 –
Transfer to the Fundy Shore and A Welcome Reception

Leaders will collect you in Halifax on the first morning of our bicycle tour of Nova Scotia. From here we will transfer to Digby, scallop fishing capital of the world, where we spend the next two days at Digby Pines a lovely old style resort with beautiful grounds overlooking the Annapolis basin. A short warm-up ride takes us to a lighthouse high above the Bay of Fundy before we cycle back to the inn for a welcome reception to begin our week.

Cycling Options: 15 miles
Lodging: First of 2 Nights at the Digby Pines

Day 2 –
Exploring Digby Neck and a Whale Watch

Grab your bicycle… Nova Scotia awaits. Today we cycle the Digby Neck enjoying spectacular views of the Bay of Fundy, highlighted by several short ferry rides. Once on Long Island, you can hike in Balancing Rock Park and maybe spot some frolicking porpoises. After lunch we meet up with Captain Tom for a trip on his fast-moving zodiac boat out into the open Bay. This area is the prime summer feeding ground for the humpback and gray whales so be ready to get up close and personal with some of these wonderful creatures.

Cycling Options: 25 or 43 miles
Lodging: Final Night at the Digby Pines

Day 3 –
Bear River and Annapolis Royal

Up and at ‘em! We ride through the quaint port of Digby with a vist to the pier where scallop boats steam in and out. From there we wend our way along a lovely tidal estuary to the town of Bear River. Here, many of the buildings sit on stilts above the high water mark. After an early lunch we make our way to Annapolis Royal, possibly the most picturesque and historic village in Nova Scotia. We get in early so that there is time to explore the Historic Gardens and the town centre. After dinner, put your sweater on for a candle lit tour of the old Burying Grounds and hear some incredible tales of the town’s colourful history.

Cycling Options: 20 miles
Lodging: The Hillsdale House or The Bread and Roses Inn

Day 4 –
Cycling the Annapolis Valley and Exploring Wolfville

This is just a great day of riding. Flat to rolling terrain along quiet country lanes, farms, fields and with luck the west wind at our backs, we ride towards the pleasant college town of Wolfville. The highlight of this day has to be lunch at Mrs. McGee’s. We hope you are hungry as she invites you into her farm kitchen for some good old Annapolis valley comfort food. In Wolfville take some time to bike around town and see some of the quaint shops or try a pint of local brew at a sidewalk café.

Cycling Options: 20 to 40 miles
Lodging: Victoria’s Historic Inn or The Tattingstone Inn

Day 5 –
Exploring a Historic Farming Community and Nova Scotia’s Eastern Shore

Today we ride the to the Grand Pre National Historic Site. Here we can relive the history of the expulsion of the Acadians by the British in 1755. From there we ride up on top of 400 year old dykes that keep the rising Fundy tide from the lush fields below. After the day’s ride we will transfer across the province and to Lunenburg, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and thriving fishing port since 1650.

Cycling Options: 20 to 35 miles
Lodging: First of 2 Nights at The Boscawen Inn or The Lunenberg Arms

Day 6 –
Exploring the Le Have Islands

Enjoy great riding along the sea coast as we visit tiny communities like Rose Bay, Kingsburg and LaHave. We ferry across to continue riding on the LaHave Island dotted with tiny harbours and stunning headlands. Take some time in the late afternoon to walk the old town streets and see the unique architecture in the old sea captains’ homes. With any luck, a tall ship will be tied up right outside our hotel!

Cycling Options: 25 or 45 miles
Lodging: Final Night at The Boscawen Inn or The Lunenberg Arms

Day 7 -
Discovering Mahone Bay

The last day comes too soon, but there is still a ride to do. We ride quiet roads along Princes Inlet and into the bustling village of Mahone Bay with its shops and lovely churches. Then we continue on to Indian Point where we can observe mussel farms and lobster traps. Finally we will have to load up and take you on in to Halifax.
