Rugged Headland and Historic Town Hike

Rugged Headland and Historic Town Hike

We start our tour at Hirtle’s Beach where our spectacular hike to Gaff Point begins. Our travels take us through a coastal forest and barren land as well as a number of coves where high rugged cliffs drop to the sea. A perfect place to spot whales and seals playing off the Atlantic coast. The second half of the tour takes us to lovely Lunenburg. Designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1995, Lunenburg is one of the premier places to visit when traveling to Nova Scotia. With a rich history, unique architecture and brightly colored houses, this quaint little ocean side town will leave a lasting impression on you. Let us enjoy a healthy picnic lunch prepared by your guides in the most perfect of town settings – on the shores of the harbour overlooking the reflections on the water from the most colourful of seaside houses.
