Canada's Ocean Playground has some great sea level ice and mixed possibilities, you just gotta poke around. Ice climbing can be found along the Fundy Coast at Hall's Harbour, Morden and Baxter's Harbour, or more inland at areas like Folly River and Victoria Park near Truro.

Nova Scotia is practically an island, jutting out into the North Atlantic. Here you can climb where the pines and granite meet the sea. Where else can your approach trail be erased by whitecapped rising tides. Nova Scotia is infamous for its disasters: Swiss Air Flight 111, Halifax Harbour Explosion, and Titanic Gravesites. Don't let your climbing trip here be the next "Perfect Storm". Start by watching the local tide report and you'll be off to a safe start with the biggest tides in the world.

Getting There 

Nova Scotia can be reached by sea, air and land. Ferrys arrive from Portland and Bar Harbor,Maine to Yarmouth,NS. Halifax has an international airport with direct flights from all over. You can also drive from New Brunswick. Most ice climbing can be reached in a couple hours drive from Halifax.
