2 Day Kayak & Hike



For the adventurous spirits this tour offers two days of land and sea adventure. Day #1 we guide you to the largest and most spectacular waterfalls in Nova Scotia coming in at 103′. The hike is moderate for the most part with a few little challenges as any good hike should have. The distance is 18km’s return and is usually done in 6-8 hours including your lunch break. The walk begins through the North River provincial park where we walk along the North River Branch where there are numerous salmon pools and remnants of old foundations from the days when they lumbered for the Oxford Paper Company. For a good part of the hike you are under canopy and can clearly smell the freshness of the air with the indicator being the lung lichen growing on the trees. When we arrive at the falls we have a lunch which we provide and a quick dip for the brave. Once refreshed we make our way for our return hike out of the forrest.

Day#2  We rest our legs as you glide in your kayak exploring a small cave, 2 eagles nests (usually which are occupied), a converted lighthouse, 2 beaches and a waterfall. We stop and prepare lunch around noon on the beach where you can go beach combing or take the 2 minute hike to the waterfall where you can refresh yourself under the falls. Our lunches are home made and very healthy and yummy. You will not leave with the beach with an empty belly 🙂 If the weather cooperates we do a crossing to the lighthouse where we stop on the Munroe Point’s sandy beach and pause to reflect on our day and swim. We then paddle from Munroe Point back to our base in North River Bridge where we say our goodbyes and bid you a safe journey. This is an exciting and rewarding adventure!
