TRIP FINDER

Sable Island 2014 - June 12-20 picture Sable Island’s wild horses are world-famous, but there’s so much more to this remote sand island off the coast of Nova Scotia. The world’s largest colony of Grey seals breeds here, as do the rare Roseate Tern and the endemic Ipswich Sparrow, among many birds of note. Amid the island’s 42 km of beaches, dunes and bogs you’ll find a plethora of plants: from iris, to sundew, to wild berries in abundance. Whales and sharks ply the nearby waters.

Sable Island’s history includes shipwrecks and salvage; sealing and walrus hunting; rescue and research. Still, the horses remain the island’s most charismatic residents. Free to roam, they represent one of the world’s last wild equine populations. Now protected as Canada’s 43rd National Park, Sable Island offers an island adventure unlike any other.
