November Colors

Even in November Nova Scotia's South and East Shore are colorful and magnificant. Not a grey month here!  Good food and wine everywhere, lots of activities and the freshest air in the world.  Outdoor activities – sea kayaking, rock climbing, kilometers of hiking, sailing, surfing - all this can be enjoyed through November and sometimes even December

Hiked, walked and maybe surfed enough the high waves at this time of the year? Then visit these events:
