Every Thursday throughout the summer and early autumn, Backroads will be introducing a group of hikers (mainly from the USA) to Tancook with a guided hike through the woods and along the coast of our beautiful island.
Following the hike, these lucky travelers will enjoy a lobster lunch prepared by the hardworking women who so generously give their time and culinary talents to make this venture such a success.
After being wined and dined, the Backroads hikers participate in the Honourary Tancook ceremony where they make a pledge and seal it with lobster kiss.
“This trip was fabulous. Our guides Martin and Tal made the trip incredibly fun, as well as informative and packed with beautiful scenery that I will remember forever. My highlight was a homemade lunch on Tancook Island with fresh cooked lobster, homemade potato salads and PIE, mmmm homemade blueberry pie!”
