In Nova Scotia, you’re never far from
nature. Nova Scotia's many expansive nature parks have so much to offer
– from endless rivers to wilderness camping, to sandy beaches and
massive forests. Several parks allow for safe deep woods camping by
canoe or kayak, while even our golf courses are typically surrounded by
forest or ocean – or even both!
Savour the salty ocean breezes. Catch the
sparkle of the sun on the
sea. Kayak along the ocean shore or down a mysterious river. Hear the
muffled thump of your footsteps on a
spruce-scented path, and revel in the knowledge that in Nova Scotia you
can enjoy nature’s many delights
every season of the year. From hiking around Nova Scotia’s Provincial
Parks to kayaking the Atlantic
waters, Nova Scotia outdoor activities are as rich and varied as the

Surfing Nova Scotia - Nova

form sweet breaks (drumlins from the last Ice Age, long peninsulas,
curving bays, and rugged mountains). Whether you are a tow-in surfer
looking for hurricane-generated twelve-foot Tahitian-style barrels or
an average surf hound seeking one of those fabled breaks that peel for
nigh onto a kilometer, you are going to be glad you brought your board
