Day by Day
Halifax to Lunenburg
Fly into Halifax airport and be picked up for a direct van transfer to charming Lunenburg, just an hour’s ride away from the Nova Scotia capital.
You may be here for the cycling, and we’ll start off with a great loop ride. But Lunenburg is rich with active experiences. Golf, hiking, and kayaking all have a strong presence in this UNESCO World Heritage town. Nautical types will get a kick out of the maritime museum or a cruise on the famous Bluenose.
Many guided tours would send you through a region at a whirlwind pace, but not this one. We’ll delve deeper into more of the Lunenberg countryside on today’s exhilarating yet peaceful rolling loop ride. With stunning countryside and seaside views, Lunenburg is often lauded as the prettiest small town in Canada.
This Acadia university town is home to some of the region’s finest hiking, so we’d be remiss not to hop off the bike for a bit and stretch our legs on a short, easily manageable group hike. The vineyards and farms near Wolfville make for stunning scenery, whether you’re cycling or walking.
Make sure you’ve put away a hearty breakfast, because our longest ride is here. You’ll pedal along flats, hills, and stunning coastal views as we make our way to the UNESCO World Heritage-designated Grand Pre.
After we warm up on our way back to Lunenberg, you’ll have the chance to enjoy even more stunning scenery on a brief hike from Hirtles Beach to Gaff Point. The well-maintained, ocean-weathered trail will take you through forest before opening up to the pounding surf. We’ll ride back to Lunenberg, or a shuttle will be available for those who prefer to zip back to town.
After breakfast, it’s time to bid adieu to the charming villages you’ve called home for the past six days and to all your new friends. Shuttle service to Halifax is available, or you can stay behind and explore Nova Scotia independently.
