Whynot Adventure specializes in providing exceptional wilderness experiences. An aptitude for creative experiences, quality and professionalism, combined with unparalleled knowledge of local history and lore are only a few of the attributes which set our company at the forefront of Nova Scotian adventure.
We incorporate our diverse experience and the rich backdrop of Kejimkujik National Park and National Historic Site, as well as the Tobeatic Wilderness Area to facilitate an exceptional experience for all Duke of Ed candidates. With its UNESCO Biosphere designation, we believe there is no better region in the province (or eastern Canada, for that matter) for which to explore by canoe, kayak and foot, and there is no other company better positioned to provide guided adventures here than Whynot Adventure.
As an official Adventurous Journey provider, let Whynot Adventure help you achieve your Duke of Ed goal! We’re happy to facilitate Bronze, Silver and Gold expeditions, as well as provide the preliminary training!
Hone your paddling skills like the outdoorsmen of a century past; learn to build a one-match fire and then cook over it; portage your gear and canoe through the forest; set up camp and safely spend the night deep in the rugged Nova Scotian wilderness. These are only a few of the experiences we can facilitate during your Duke of Edinburgh Adventurous Journey. Join us for remarkable experience you’ll never forget.
