About Earth Rhythms Experiences
In the company of local guides who live here and know the area well, we craft hands-on, immersive encounters with local producers, orchardists, artists, craftspeople, songwriters, artisans and chefs. In conversation, we walk, journey, discover, explore, touch and taste as we discover the nature of the Acadian forest of Atlantic Canada, the coastline of the Bay of Fundy, local culture and art in places that travellers would not normally find on their own. We learn together from locals who live here, and eat local foods.
At the heart of Earth Rhythms experiences are the following key elements.
Guides who know the local scene, have a passion for sharing their craft, and are delightful hosts.
Authentic (real) encounters - with people, places and things to do or make.
Discovery - surprise and intrigue wrapped in attention to details
Walking - to touch the earth, and learn from the texture of different ecosystems
Storytelling - with local folks, some planned and some serendipitous
Responsible tourism - practicing sustainability throughout your visit (local food, low impact transportation, conservation and water use, reduced energy output, recycling, re-using, and more).
Slow travel experiences - how we spend our time with meaning and embracing a place through its people, engaged with hands-on interactions using the senses to encounter local food, culture, art, and nature. (© 2018 McCarthy and Davar)

Responsible Tourism practices
Earth Rhythms is continuously improving how it reduces its footprint in travel, supports local community partners, and practices zero waste in its programs. We not only implement these practices, but we’ll share what we are learning if you would like to take home some ideas and resources to implement in your own life, community, organization, business, or network.
Each experience will have its own price, and will be available to purchase online. Stay tuned as we launch our new experiences in the summer of 2019.
