One of the great natural wonders of the modern world, the Bay of Fundy is known for its exceptional change between high and low tide, with the area of Burntcoat Head registering in the Guinness Book as the highest tide in the world. Located between Nova Scotia and New Brunswick in the Atlantic Ocean, this is a true destination for extreme adventure. The tourists will find themselves whale and bird watching, while the Embark traveler may pursue the whitewater rafting available on the Shubenacadie River as it deposits into the bay. What makes Shubenacadie unique is the that its rapids occur from the convergence of incoming river tides, creating waves that can reach up to 10 feet in height. There are also an abundance of of hiking opportunities within the park that include plenty of short hikes that overlook scenic coast or open onto idyllic waterfalls, while camp may be set up at Point Wolfe, Chignecto and at park headquarters; just make a reservation beforehand so that you know you'll have space.

Note:Beyond the bay, the coast of Nova Scotia has a number of nature parks and a gorgeous coastline, as well as the Joggins Fossil Cliffs and Wassen's Bluff, must-see attractions for the amateur archaeologists among us and sites of world-famous dinosaur discoveries. Because of erosion, it is amazing to see the exposed record of life over time in these cliffs.
