Camino Nova Scotia


Camino Nova Scotia is an initiative of the Atlantic School of Theology. It organizes occasional creative weekends centred around walking, but its main goal is to facilitate guided group pilgrimages of approximately 10 to 15 persons along well-marked public trails (“rails to trails”, Trans Canada Trail, etc.) on the Nova Scotia mainland and in Cape Breton. Our local Caminos generally vary in length from three days to one week.

The Summer/Fall schedule for 2023, as well as registration links, are available on our Schedule page.

Since 2014, Camino Nova Scotia has "made pilgrimage local." Pilgrimage is spiritual travel for transformation. Under the umbrella of the Atlantic School of Theology, Camino NS offers walking pilgrimages in—you guessed it—Nova Scotia! Our pilgrimages are set in our gorgeous Maritime province where anywhere you go, you're never far from the sea. Discover more about your spirituality and about yourself in community as you also discover the Gaelic, Mi’kmaq, and Acadian histories of the Land under your feet.
