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. Although our hotels offer simpler amenities than the typical Backroads property, they provide us with the greatest access to the best hiking in the region.
Traffic & Shuttle Time

To access the very best hiking routes, we'll often start and end our routes with strategic shuttles via bus, van, boat or train. Expect shuttle times of 1–2 hours most days.
