Why Adventure With US
Since 2015 we have provided unique and authentic experiences for small groups of locals and visitors to Nova Scotia. Our adventures have been designed to showcase the coastal beauty and cultural charm of our region and can be customized to perfectly suit your needs.
Our excursions and business operations take place in Mi’kma’ki, the ancestral and unceded territory of the Mi’kmaq People. In the early 1500s, Europeans made contact with the Mi’kmaq who resided in Mi’kma’ki. This region includes what is known today as Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, Newfoundland, most of New Brunswick and parts of the Gaspé Peninsula. This territory is covered by the various “Treaties of Peace and Friendship” signed between the British Crown and Mi’kmaq Peoples.
We are all Treaty people, we must respect and honour our rights as such within the ancestral and unceded territory of the Mi’kmaq People. We feel it is vital to acknowledge this history and the stories – however painful, however symbolic – as a small step towards the harder work of true reconciliation.
Our team is made of local artists, architects, photographers and adventurers who all bring a varied wealth of knowledge to our excursions while always making sure your safety is paramount. All of our team have Wilderness First Aid certification, advanced Class 4 driver’s licenses, are nationally certified tour guides or tour directors, and have vast experience in the tourism and hospitality industry. Their creativity to make your tour the best and our attention to the details will leave worry free throughout your experience with us.
Our specialty is in catering to small open groups or private adventure of family and friends, so we can build you a custom itinerary based on your interests. We are the exact opposite of a big bus company. Our tours are meant to be a bit longer so we can linger and take a moment to enjoy and dive into what we are experiencing at your own pace. Tell us what you would like to see and doing and we will create a tailored experience to showcase the cultural and natural wonders of Nova Scotia.
About Geordie the Owner
With over 25 years of experience in tourism and hospitality, I have mixed that work history with an education in the arts, photography and history; with a passion for travel and adventure into a fun little business.
Although I wasn’t born in Nova Scotia, my family has deep roots in the region, including Sable Island. I moved to Halifax in 1997 to study photography and art history, and have since gained an intimate knowledge of the Maritime’s best places to visit and the fascinating history of those places.
Whether you’re an experienced traveller or a curious newcomer, if you live and breathe exploration and adventure then I can’t wait to take you on a journey through the beauty and history of Canada’s east coast.
