The Halifax TO Toronto itinerary
Day 1 - Halifax Pick-Up and Journey to Peggy’s Cove
Day 2 - Cape Breton Island
From Peggy’s Cove, we’re going to head East to Cape Breton Island - the island of breathtaking trails, rugged cliffs, and incredible scenery. We’ll have a couple of pit stops en route to our campsite, where we’ll explore some of the hidden gems of the island. Once we’re all settled at camp, we’ll head to Cape Breton’s famous skyline trail for a delicious sunset - be sure to keep your eyes out for whales here!
Day 3 and 4 - Prince Edward Island
Day 5 and 6 - Fundy National Park
From Prince Edward Island, we’ll be crossing over the confederation bridge - Canada’s longest bridge - to reach New Brunswick. New Brunswick is home to the highest changing tides in the world, and over the next two days we’ll be exploring this incredible region of Canada. We’ll be watching the insane tides at Hopewell Rocks, where we’ll get to experience the rocks both at high tide, and low tide (when we get to actually walk on the ocean floor!) This is a crazy surreal experience and definitely one for the books!! We’ll also be adventuring through some of Fundy National Park’s best trails and taking some time to explore the cutest town of all towns - Alma, an absolute fan-favourite!
Day 7 - Mont Sainte-Anne
From Fundy National Park, we’ll be travelling north to Quebec! Here, we’ll be staying in the ski resort region of Mont Sainte-Anne where we’ll have the option of taking on a Via Ferrata climb of the Sainte-Anne canyon. For those of you new to Via Ferrata (I am too!!) it's a sweet blend of hiking and climbing to give you a new perspective on some beautiful scenery. If you’re ready to take on that adventure, then SWEET! If not, feel free to hike around the Sainte-Anne region or just kick back and chill out at our campsite.
Day 8 and 9 - Montreal
For days 8 and 9, we’ll be exploring beautiful Montreal. Montreal is the world’s second largest French-speaking city in the world and offers visitors European vibes right here in Canada. We’ll have two full days to explore all that Montreal has to offer - from the beautiful old town, to the top of Mont Royal, to indulging on fresh Montreal bagels, to understanding and appreciating the art of Canadian poutine, and finally to experiencing the city’s incredible nightlife.
Day 10 - Ottawa River
From Montreal, we’ll be heading west to Canada’s capital - Ottawa! We’ll be stopping at Canada’s famous Parliament Hill as we head to our campsite on the Ottawa River. We’ll be staying at Owl Rafting (which holds a very special place in our founder Lisa’s heart), as it’s likely the greatest and most underrated spot in Central Canada. Today will be a chill day where we get to enjoy all the amazing facilities of Owl Rafting’s waterfront - kayaking, canoeing, playing volleyball, slipping n’ sliding AND enjoying gourmet meals prepared by the oh so lovely staff at Owl. This will be a day and night to just GET LOOSE.
Day 11 - White Water Rafting on the Ottawa River
White. Water. Rafting. On the Ottawa River. Yes. Yes. YES!
Day 12 - Niagara Falls
Day 13 and 14 - Toronto
Welcome to the 6 - where you’re most likely going to bump into Drake, Justin Bieber, Shawn Mendes AND the Weeknd all at the same time! Okay, this likely won’t happen, BUT you’re still bound to fall in love with the city during our 2 days here. Together, we’ll head up the CN tower, and the absolute thrill-seekers of our crew will have the opportunity to do the CN Tower Edge Walk. If the stars align and the Blue Jays home games (Canada’s one and only Major League Baseball team) match up with our itinerary, we’ll get rowdy in the stands cheering for our team!
