We are a small home-based family business. Founded in 1987 by Cathy and Philip, with a garage and twelve new bikes, it now employs a dozen of our close friends and family, year round, 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 35 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 rural Nova Scotia, and we work together in an atmosphere of fun and team spirit. There are currently six of us year-round, in a small office and a beautiful seaside setting. We are friends and family; 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.
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!
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.
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.
