Rum Runners

4 DAy Self-Guided Tour

This self-guided tour is an excellent option for those looking to book their first cycling trip or to enjoy a laid-back (off road) cycling itinerary while visiting some of Nova Scotia’s most popular destinations.

Formerly an old rail bed, the Rum Runners Trail, connects Halifax and Lunenburg (UNESCO world Heritage site). Daily cycling itineraries range from 25 to 40 km with limited on-road riding. Minor on-road riding is required exiting the trail to reach accommodations. Our itineraries are available free of charge giving guests the option to book directly with us or make arrangements on their own. This self-guided tour can be completed with a number of bike rental options, however we recommend the use of an e-bike for added pleasure and leisure.

This itinerary is four days, and three nights. Breakfast is included in two of our accommodations with the other offering an excellent restaurant option. Each destination comes with a list of recommended restaurants for both lunch and dinner as well as background history and a selection of things to do. This itinerary includes time to explore each of the communities you visit giving you an authentic taste of Nova Scotia’s South Shore.

With our recommended itinerary guests will experience: Peggy’s Cove, Hubbards, Chester, Mahone Bay, Lunenburg, and Wolfville. Guests have the option to add on an additional day of cycling and night’s stay in Wolfville.
