About this Tour

Feel the thrill of exploring one of the most remote places on Earth. Expansive dunes, wild horses and the world’s largest grey seal colony await this once-in-a-lifetime experience on Sable Island National Park Reserve.

Get your camera ready for an exclusive one-day adventure to an island located 300 km offshore of Nova Scotia in the Atlantic Ocean. Landing on the island, we’ll be welcomed by Parks Canada staff for a brief orientation on how to keep safe on the island.




We then guide your group between the sand dunes to discover wild horses, the world’s largest colony of grey seals, unique bird species, and archaeological treasures from centuries of habitation, that are revealed by the shifting dunes.

Before and during the trip our photo guide will provide photo tips and instructions to help you capture the wild horses and landscape of Sable Island. They will also be shooting photos of our experience from arrival to departure and we’ll have digital images for you to download after the journey to remember and share this once-in-a-lifetime memory!
