For anyone with a yearning for outdoor adventure, the southwestern part of Nova Scotia would have to be near the top of your wish list.

This area is bounded by two uniquely different bodies of salt water, the granite-strewn Atlantic Ocean on one side and the Bay of Fundy, home of the world's highest tides, on the other.

Sandwiched between them are wilderness acres dotted with hundreds of lakes; pristine rivers and streams and even the 150-kilometer swath of the Annapolis Valley, one of Canada's prime fruit and vegetable growing areas.

Although infinite possibilities for outdoor adventure abound, you are never far from a town or village where you can end the day with a fine meal and a variety of accommodations . . . everything from an historic country inn or B&B, to a resort, conventional motel or campground. However, it's outdoor adventure you came for so let's have a look at what awaits you in Southwest Nova Scotia.
