We are a small family business. Founded in 1987 by Cathy and Philip, with a garage and twelve new bikes and a Volvo station wagon, the team now includes son and successor Taran, as well as a dozen enthusiastic and very capable friends, and a wonderful cadre of well-informed, kind guides in season. Today, your experience is enhanced by the knowledge and skills we have developed over 37 years, by a warehouse full of new bikes, backpacks, hiking poles, passenger vans, and other excellent equipment, and by the amazing technology we use to plan all the details of your active holiday.

We are based in Nova Scotia, and we work together in an atmosphere of fun and team spirit in a rural seaside setting. We care about the experience with which you have entrusted us; and when you join us for a week of active exploring, we encourage you to find your inner child as you drop the concerns of the workaday world. Laughter and sharing are our intentions and rewards. We will show you good food, quiet routes, comfy sleeps, unobtrusive service, and genuine care. The trips proposed herein are blank canvases of organization upon which, with the help of our guides, partners, and friends, you can paint rich tapestries of colourful experience. As a partnership between your exploratory desires and our experience and capabilities, your holiday can unfold in the true spirit of adventure. Your joy is our joy; and that is our purpose. Please join us as soon as you have a chance.


Small Groups

Guided group size rarely exceeds 12, and guide to guest ratio is usually 1:6 or better, so that we can use small inns, while you get unparalleled service, more personality, more flexibility, and more fun. We like it that way too!


All Abilities

Travel your own distance at your own pace. You do not need to be super-fit. On guided trips, your support vehicle is available to help you make the most of each day’s route. On self-guided trips, you can plan to arrange daily pickups or transfers to adjust the route.


Care and Excellence

Choose us because of our experience and integrity; because our destinations and routes are profoundly beautiful; and because of our commitment to superlative knowledge and care. We also like to serve you healthy picnics with hand-ground, freshly-roasted coffee.


Guaranteed Departures

We do not cancel trips once we accept your reservation, so you can make plans with confidence. See the details on our terms and conditions page.
