A wild and windswept island of sand sits far out in the North Atlantic, isolated and remote. The famous Sable Island wild horses roam freely, and the worlds largest breeding colony of grey seals occupy its extensive beaches. Plants, birds, and insects have adapted to life on Sable Island, some of which are found nowhere else on earth. Whether its the wildlife, the shipwrecks or an unparalleled sense of solitude amidst a vast expanse of sea, Sable Island promises the trip-in-a-lifetime to every visitor.
Parks Canada welcomes visitors to Sable Island National Park Reserve from June to the end of October. As one of Canadas furthest offshore islands, it is only accessible by air and by sea and is open to visitors for day trips only. The island is extremely isolated, and access is determined by weather and geography. The wilderness of the site provides a backcountry-like experience similar to other remote national parks in Canada.
