The four-day Cape Breton Chronicles tour offers a breathtaking perspective of its scenic island via kayaking, whale watching, and hiking.
Great E.A.R.T.H. Expeditions
Coastal mountains. White sand beaches. Secluded coves. Red sandstone cliffs. Towers of volcanic basalt that vanish beneath the world's highest tides. Nova Scotia's diverse landscape is its own thunderous epic, with vistas unspoiled by humans or squirrels with builder's permits. And wherever Great E.A.R.T.H. Expeditions takes its groups of visitors within this landscape, the intent is always the same—to give them an experience that "reaches the heart."
Ryan Barry has been exploring Nova Scotia for years, bringing back few souvenirs beyond the inspiration for his next blog post, and turning his passion for Nova Scotia and its nature into a business. By leaving the lightest carbon footprint possible—often just literal human footprints, or the wake of a kayak's paddle—he and his team are able to guide adventurers to places unreachable by less environmental methods, such as gas-belching motorboats or riding a polar bear like a horse. The guides provide insights into the region's history and aboriginal folklore along the way, but it's ultimately the land and its colorful wildlife that fulfills Great E.A.R.T.H. Expeditions' motto.
