The largest region in Halifax is predominately known for its outdoor adventure of cycling, kayaking, canoeing, fishing, hiking and camping. In this region is also the picturesque Musquodoboit River, an outdoor enthusiast’s haven. Running through the majority of the area, it is nearly 100 kilometres long, making it an ideal canoeing and kayaking location!
The Musquodoboit region has hidden gems waiting to be discovered throughout the region (plus, North America’s largest hummingbird sculpture!).
