Private Island Kayak Sauna Tour
Just 120km from Halifax and 17km from Lunenburg, Nova Scotia, the LaHave Islands are a paddlers’ paradise and a sauna enthusiast’s dreamy island retreat.
We will begin by bundling up for a serene paddle through the northern portion of the LaHave Island Archipelago. Colourful lobster buoys dot the landscape from late November onwards, and we will have opportunities to spot ducks and other winter birds and wildlife along the way.
A second guide will greet you when you arrive at a private island where your hot stoked wood-fired sauna awaits. Let your worries melt away as you warm yourself to the core. Of course you will have an opportunity to take a polar dip in the Northern Atlantic between sauna sessions if you dare!
Refuel afterwards with a local charcuterie board before rugging back up for the paddle back to the mainland. This exclusive experience will reinvigorate your senses, and get you outdoors enjoying winter in coastal Nova Scotia.
Paddling in the LaHave Islands is beautiful in all seasons. We have extensive experience running paddling tours in extreme cold water environments such as Antarctica and the Arctic. We love paddling the LaHave Islands during the winter and are super excited to share this unique experience with you.
