Straight Talk

We want to make sure you're on the trip that's right for you. Every Backroads trip is unique and this one is no exception.

Accommodations
Nova Scotia is a land of rich heritage and rustic charm, and while Backroads has selected the best properties in the places we visit, history and character outweigh elegance and luxury in this Maritime province. While our hotels offer simpler amenities than the typical Backroads property, they provide us with the greatest access to the best riding in the region.
Shuttles
To access the very best biking routes, we'll often bypass busy roads and traffic by starting our bike rides with strategic shuttles via van and boat.
