A group of Inuit visitors from Salluit, Que. visited Cape Chignecto Provincial Park last week for a kayaking trip to The Three Sisters.

CAPE CHIGNECTO – The Three Sisters had some extraordinary company – not to mention entertainment – last week.

The famous rock formations at Cape Chignecto Provincial Park were visited via kayak by a group of Inuit tourists from Salluit, Que. on Tuesday, May 21.

“Who would have guessed ever to hear throat singing on a tour to the ‘Sisters’?” asked Else Marie Ostermann of NovaShores Adventures in Advocate Harbour, who hosted the energetic group.

“The participants were eager to jump into kayaks and enjoyed the balmy eight degrees – a treat compared to the normal temperatures at their home close to the Hudson Strait,” said Ostermann.

The group was on a six-day tour arranged by Salluit teacher and fitness instructor Maggie MacDonnell. Participating in the Bluenose Marathon in Halifax was also a part of the tour.

For most of the visitors, it was their first trip outside their community, where there are no roads, and only expensive air travel connects to the outside world.
