Experience the Milky Way

under Acadian Skies & Mi’kmaq Lands

Wedgeport, as well as major parts of the Municipality of Argyle are certified by UNESCO Starlight Foundation as the first Starlight Tourism Destination in North America. We have night sky light conditions free of light pollution, which establish unobscured access to the night sky and to starlight.

On clear nights, Wedgeport Point Nature Trail offers perfect conditions to view the Milky Way, and our public starlight viewing deck and picnic area are scheduled for opening in summer 2017. This 2 km long nature and hiking trail straddles the tip of our peninsula, along the Tusket River estuary, coastal marshes, mixed-wood forest, and the Atlantic ocean. Rocky shores are interspersed with small sandy spots, barrier beach ponds, offering most relaxing scenery, and peaceful nature.

For your ultimate starlight viewing experience, a visit atDeep Sky Eye Observatoryis a must. It is located at338 Frotten Road in Quinan
