Road trip tent camping Nova Scotia

Jump to last reply

My girlfriend and I are planning a trip for June or August of 2014. We are planning on driving to Nova Scotia and tent camping at night. We live in CT so it looks like a 12 hour drive to get there and back. I have a small 4 door hatch back with roof racks and a carrier. I am an experienced camper and use this car for snowboard/winter camping trips all the time. I am 28 and she is 25 we are interested in hiking, beaches, breweries, wine vineyards, music, coastal sights, seeing wild life. We are open to suggestions and anyone who has done a similar trip I would appreciate any feedback.
The plan is to drive up in a day, no ferries I get very seasick. I would like to start in bay of fundy area since it would be the closest to get to. What I would like to do is camp in a different location every night and make our way up to cape Breton. I would like to drive the Cabot trail or part of it. Maybe for one day and night do Halifax, probably need to stay in a hotel. I would like only to have to drive a couple hours a day so we can spend the day doing things and making the most of daylight.
Our time table goal is 2 weeks. I'll have two weeks vacation from the army this summer but my CO is pretty cool and may let a couple of days "AWOL" slide for a 6pack trade. I would love ideas and pointers from people. She kind of wants to do PEI as well, I don't think we will have time. If this is possible let me know, if not let me know. Don't hold back criticism I can take it, if it's not doable let know. Thank you for your time.
