    IMPORTANT: Safety and Clothing Considerations

    1. This tour involves hiking over difficult terraine and likely, wet ground. Be prepared to get wet feet. We recommend bringing a separate change of clothing (including footwear, if possible), as there will not be enough time to go back to the hotel before the BBQ in Truro.

    2. The weather in coastal Nova Scotia is highly variable, so be prepared for rain, cold and damp conditions as well as bright sun and heat. Even if it is bright and sunny in Halifax, the weather at the coast can be substantially colder and windier than in town.

    3. Bring sunglasses, sunscreen, bug repellent, extra water and snacks, or anything else you might need for a day hiking on the barrens.

    4. Almost every year someone dies from being swept off the rocks at Peggy’s Cove by a big wave. Be very very careful on the rocks near the coast. Do not venture onto rocks that are wet. For this reason, we are asking that you not hike on your own: take a buddy regardless of how long you are going off for.
