Camino Nova Scotia

About

Canada's Own Camino of the Shores

Since 2014, as part of the educational outreach of the Atlantic School of Theology, Camino Nova Scotia has "made pilgrimage local." Pilgrimage is spiritual travel for transformation. Camino NS offers guided group walking pilgrimages in—you guessed it—Nova Scotia! Our local Caminos are set along the four shores of our gorgeous Maritime province where anywhere you go you're never far from the sea. Discover more about yourself in community as you also discover the Gaelic, Mi’kmaq, and Acadian histories of the Land under your feet.

Here are some highlights of our 2023 walks

Happy that we made it? You bet!

There's a lot to appreciate in nature at 3.5 km an hour!

Annapolis Valley pilgrims celebrate arriving in Annapolis Royal in early Oct 2022
Four friends made by the trail between Grand Pré and Annapolis Royal

Looking back at 2022, despite Storm Fiona, we got out on three walks...

One pop-up pilgrimage near Halifax, one week-long trek along the Annapolis Valley...

...and a Gaelic themed North Shore pilgrimage weekend based out of Pictou

2022 was a great year for Camino Nova Scotia. We gathered with friends from NS and from across Canada to explore trails and learn to be in community step-by-step as we took time to walk "outside the routine"...

Our pilgrimages included some surprises: the local lobster plant's sale, enabling us to enjoy a wonderful lobster supper, the rerouting (an rerouting again) of our walks through Pictou county because of downed trees, and the fabulous fiddle music we enjoyed in Pictou from a prize-winning local resident...

But most of all, the friends made and the memories created every step of the way. Laughing in the kitchen as we made Finnish pancakes, coming across that message Kathleen left for us in chalk along the trail, or making it through the long day to find Shawna waiting with fresh-baked cookies!
