Do you have a natural curiosity? Are you interested in the economic climate of the areas you visit?

Nova Scotia has a wonderful array of innovative and progressive businesses; from the successful cultivation of a Japanese berry right through to the development and manufacturing of advanced composites for the aeronautic, space and defense industries, there is a lot going on!

Our Innovators Tours will take small groups of motorcyclists on regional tours to experience first hand the possibilities this province has to offer.

Interesting, educational and fun, these tours will mix great riding roads with great business opportunities.
