Aspo-WhatDidYouSay Peninsula

Aspotogan (ASS-pa-TOH-gan) Peninsula. The name is an anglicized version of a Mi’Kmaq word Ashmutogun or Ukpudeskakun, and the peninsula is situated between St. Margaret’s and Mahone Bays.

Regardless of where the name came from or whether you’ve ever heard of it or not, once you’ve been there you’ll never, ever forget it. It’s a simply stunning drive and you’ll surely use up a memory card snapping photos along the way.

Drive it by car? Well, if you must. But you are far better off going by bike, becase in a car you are simply going to miss way too much!

Oh – you don’t have a bike? I’m sure we can help you out there. There are certainly plenty of places to rent bikes around here in addition to our backpacker hostel, so even if ours are all gone we’ll help kit you out with bike and helmet and all you need for your day.

If a picture is worth a thousand words, your camera will become an encyclopedia.
