Why should you take a cycling holiday in Nova Scotia? We have 6 reasons this should be on the top of your wish list.

 

You have to time to relax and recharge

When you think of taking a cycling holiday with close family or friends or as a guest, your mind instantly shifts to the open countryside with its amazing views and numerous back roads.

As you cycle along, making leisurely stops for photos, lunch, and visiting points of interest on the trail, you have all the time in the world to relax, and take in your surroundings.

 

You have time to take in the sights

Cycling holidays open up a world of discovery. Pleasant communities and at times spectacular changes of scenery, all come to your attention as you bike along.

 

You have time to get to know the region

Cycling holidays will give you lots of time to become familiar with the region you are visiting. You just have to remember to take oodles of photographs!

You have time to get closer to nature

A cycling holiday unsurprisingly arouses an interest in nature since you are right in the middle of it. This is great for lovers of photography as you will encounter the joys of seasonal flora and fauna, as well as local birds, animals and possibly sea life.
You have time for a healthier lifestyle

On a cycling holiday, you will automatically slide into a healthier lifestyle. Moderate daily exercise combined with plenty of fresh air is the perfect answer to a busy regime. Your day starts with a relaxing breakfast, and after a wonderful day on the road, you will sit down each night with a sense of accomplishment and lots of delightful memories.

 

You have time to create special memories with your loved ones

Getting away from it all, as a guest, a couple or small group, will give you loads of time to strengthen both old and new bonds. Your cycling holiday will be a shared journey, and will generate many treasured memories for years to come.

 

Now that we have wet your appetite, here is a cycling tour to consider.

 

 

6 Day Biking Tour of Nova Scotia Sea Coast

Bking Tour of Nova Scotia

A cycling holiday of Nova Scotia captures the best of mainland Nova Scotia from the massive tides of on the Bay of Fundy to the rugged Atlantic coast. The cycling is superb with mile after mile of quiet paved roads. We will experience some of Nova Scotia’s vibrant history when we visit the site of the first permanent European settlement dating from 1604.

 

We see the power of the world’s highest tides were boats sit in the mud at low tide only to float up 40 feet to the top of the wharf a few hours later. The riding is not difficult and we attend you every step of the way if you need a lift, a water refill or some encouragement. We’ll spend nights in charming villages.

 

Our collection of inns is truly wonderful, welcoming you with the warmth and hospitality that you will find displayed throughout Nova Scotia. There are a vibrant and burgeoning food and wine scene going on in Nova Scotia. Superb white wines are produced in some of the areas we bike through and we’ll stop to visit. Local chefs are taking advantage of the incredibly fresh seafood and farm ingredients and their results take a back seat to no one.
