What does adventure mean to you?

Are you an experienced outdoorsperson? Or do you rarely ever find yourself outside?

Do you want to get off the beaten path and discover some of the park’s secrets? Would you like to find great spots for bird watching, snorkelling, or canoeing? Perhaps you’d like to discover where all the interesting fungi are? Or explore Indigenous or Acadian culture in depth?

Well, here’s your opportunity to go wild and choose your own adventure!

This program is tailor-made for you, based on your experience level, your interests, and your abilities. It’s a chance to go backcountry exploring, off the designated trails, accompanied by a qualified guide. If you’d prefer a more gentle adventure, we can stick closer to a specific location and lead you on an exploration of the natural world around you.

The first visitors to sign up are given the first opportunity for input. Additional visitors that same day may join in the adventure, or if that doesn’t suit their needs or interests, they are welcome to choose an alternate date.

Because this program is so personalized, we’ll need some information to build your adventure. There are registration sheets available from park staff, as well as the visitor centres. If you’d like to sign up before your trip, email, or call 902-224-2306.

There are no age restrictions for this program, but due to its nature, there are limitations for people with mobility challenges and severe medical conditions. Children and youth accompanied by adults are welcome, though parents should take into consideration their child’s/children’s ability and any special needs, and should prepare accordingly for the duration, with adequate water and snacks. Dogs are welcome on the adventures, as long as they are kept on leash. There is a maximum of ten participants per program.

Dress appropriately for the weather and be prepared to apply insect repellent or sunscreen. Sturdy footwear is necessary, as is any medication you may require (i.e., EpiPen® for insect allergies). We recommend a change of socks, as getting your feet wet is a distinct possibility. A change of clothing is also a good idea, especially if it is raining, but this can be left in your car. You should bring your own drinking water and snacks, and a lunch if you’ve opted for the full-day program.
