    Outdoor Adventures in Halifax

    Here’s the description of my latest book, published in June 2016, as it appears on the publisher’s website.

    Dale Dunlop’s long-established bestseller, Exploring Nova Scotia, is a bible for people who like to get out and explore. In this new book Dale and his co-adventurer, Ryan Barry, focus on adventures within easy day-tripping distance of the city centre — and sometimes right in the city itself. From hikes across the Barrens to Polly’s Cove with views of Peggy’s Cove few have seen, to mountain biking a beautiful series of trails at Spider Lake, Haligonians and visitors alike will be amazed at how much there is to discover near at hand. Included is a new spot to cross-country ski with a chance to ice fish at the end of the trail at Jerry Lawrence Park, and a kayak route through wilderness areas to see stunning vistas of the Atlantic coast at Shut-In Island.

    Dale Dunlop and Ryan Barry offer the inside scoop along with detailed information about how to find each location, stunning full-colour photography and tips about what to bring with you. Also included are GPS co-ordinates, cell phone coverage details and easy to understand graphics indicating level of difficulty and type of adventure.  To Order A Copy, Please Visit This Link.

  3. Exploring Nova Scotia

    My travel writing career began with the publication of Exploring Nova Scotia in 1995, the most comprehensive guide to Nova Scotia that has ever been compiled. My wife Alison Scott and I worked on it for several years before the first edition was ready to go to print. Over the next fifteen years new editions were added on a regular basis until the 6th edition which is the most recent. Click Here to buy a copy.
