Taste of the Tobeatic Canoe Trip - 4 Day

More often than not I run into paddlers who've heard the magic of the Tobeatic calling their name for years, yet they've never made it into the region's remote reaches. The Tobeatic is entirely different than paddling in Kejimkujik- the sense of change navigating Pebbloggitch to the Shelburne River, the threshold of the Tobeatic, is palpable. The landscape changes- it feels older and more rugged, and the rivers run tarry black with tannins.The Rockefeller family, Babe Ruth and Zane Gray are a few of the notable figures who've spent time exploring this vast tract of wilderness. Discover what lured these figures of plenitude into the wilds of Nova Scotian hinterland with our Taste of the Tobeatic canoe trip.Like any other trip we'll begin with a rendezvous at Jake's Landing for a quick lunch and some time to repack your personal items in waterproof bags. After that we make our way towards the back boundary of Kejimkujik National Park, where we'll set up for the night and some well deserved rest. The next day we'll cross out of the park and onto the Shelburne, a Canadian Heritage River and head deeper into the Tobeatic. The following day we'll continue to explore the Tobeatic while we work our way back towards Keji and the final night of the trip. We'll return to Jake's Landing late in the afternoon on the final day.As you may have gathered, this trip is not for the faint of heart. I strongly recommend having paddling experience, the ability to carry a load over rough terrain and stamina to put in 8-10 hours of adventure each day. You will see remote places, which are extremely photogenic, but you will have to work to to get there.
