Glamping – Camping in Style on Your Own Island

This is kayak glamping in Nova Scotia at its best. Rent your own island on the Atlantic Ocean and stay in an amazing yurt! This is not your everyday accommodation, this is an amazing experience.

The 2 acre treed island is a short paddle from our office and commands amazing views of Blue Rocks, the surrounding islands, and the ocean. The yurt is handcrafted and sits on a platform, it has a queen size bed, propane stove, kitchenette, dining area, and deck. The island has bayberry and juniper bushes, a tidal pool, lots of bird life.

Deluxe Yurt Island Package –

Take a thrilling kayak adventure to a seal colony, snorkel hidden inlets, cycle winding coastal roads, and dine on local delicacies. Sleep under the stars in a cozy yurt on your very own private island, just off the coast of beautiful Blue Rocks fishing village near Lunenburg.

Active adventure is made easy on this ultra-exclusive experience for two in the authentic fishing village of Blue Rocks. Have fun with fellow travellers while kayaking sheltered waterways between the Blue Rocks islands. Hear about the people who once lived in the island communities, as you paddle past the houses and wharves–imagining a time gone by. Keep your camera ready and capture a great shot as you pass by a seal colony and the curious residents who call this area home.

Back on land, pick up your delicious picnic lunch, bikes, and snorkel sets for an afternoon of self-guided exploration–with the help of custom routes, tips, and area highlights. As evening approaches, you’ll take a short paddle to your own private island, where a cozy, hand-crafted yurt awaits–complete with all your belongings and a delicious, locally-sourced dinner.

Fall asleep star-gazing through the yurt’s skylight and wake up to the sounds of waves lapping, birds calling, and a delicious local breakfast. This is an experience you will never forget!
