THE 2020 SEASON IS ON HOLD AT THIS TIME. BUT THERE IS NOT A BETTER PLACE TO BE IN 2021. SMALL GROUPS, SMALL COASTAL TOWNS, CLEAN AIR, BEAUTIFUL SCENERY. WE CAN STILL PLAN FOR THE 2021 SEASON OR WE CAN DO YOUR PLANNING FOR 2021. NOVA SCOTIA WAS RECENTLY LISTED AS AN ALTERNATIVE DESTINATION BY SOME TRAVEL SITES. THE REASON, AVOID OVERTOURISM AND ALL THE UNPLEASANTRIES ASSOCIATED WITH CROWDED VACATION DESTINATIONS. STAY SAFE.
I am still hopeful that the 2020 season can continue. Customers will be notified of any changes/cancellations. Full refunds, of course. Everyone stay safe and sound.
For 2020 trails will only be sanctioned as requested for Volkssporters that are blue trails customers.
The Gaff Point Trail will be a sanctioned trail this summer, starting 7-1-19. Enjoy a beautiful hike in a wonderful area. Trail information is very accessible for that trail but I will add to the website very soon. I have not been there this year so please watch for any trail closings or information when you get to the starting point.
They summed up their vacation by stating:
" Amazing food and even more amazing views!"
I think that every time I go there and every day that I am there!
" I just went through all these reservations and made sure I had everything together. To be honest I have been so so busy with work and moving back I haven’t had a chance to yet.
Thank you SO SO much for everything you have done in advance for us, I can’t thank you enough. The trip wouldn’t be happening if it wasn’t for you.! ""
I can't wait to see how their trip goes. I'll let you know!
Below are comments from a small group of 3, first time visitors to Nova Scotia, that used bluetrails to assist in the planning of their vacation. I am not posting the entire email, just my favorite sentences!!
"We are at Inn on the Lake on our final night before flying home tomorrow. Our vacation has been fabulous! I really have nothing negative to say. We loved all the accommodations and the amount of time at each place was perfect.
Reflecting on the whole vacation we would not change anything. Thank you for all your help enabling us to have the perfect trip!"
I loved assisting in the planning for their vacation but it is so easy to have a perfect vacation in Nova Scotia.
Come explore the South Shore and more!!!
