Nova Scotia

The Cliffs of Fundy UNESCO Global Geopark is located along the north shore of the Minas Basin of the Bay of Fundy in Nova Scotia, stretching from Lower Truro in the east to Apple River in the west, a distance of 165 km. Most of its geosites can be accessed by NS highways 2 and 209 as they meander along this awesome coastline.

The Cliffs of Fundy Geopark is located on Canada’s east coast along Nova Scotia’s Bay of Fundy – home to the world’s highest tides and one of the seven natural wonders of North America

The Cliffs of Fundy Geopark also features Canada’s lead research facility for green tidal stream energy technology among its many attractions, experiences and geosites to explore.

In addition to extreme tides, Cliffs of Fundy is the only place on the planet where one can see the record of the assembly of supercontinent Pangea 300 million years ago, and its breakup 100 million years later within the stunning landscapes that exist today.

 

Visitors will discover stories of prehistoric creatures and Canada’s oldest dinosaurs; of indigenous legends and the earliest human settlement in eastern North America; and of people that have continued to adapt to the everchanging tide and world around them.
