Fox Harb'r - The Next Big Thing
Meet the Next Big Thing in Canadian Incentive & HIGH-END CORPORATE MEETINGS
Fox Harb’r Resort. Remember that name. You may have not yet heard of it, but you will. It’s the newest addition to Canada’s growing portfolio of incentive-ready destinations. Set amongst the lush, rolling hills of Nova Scotia’s Northumberland Shore, this luxury golf and outdoor adventure destination is something straight out of a storybook — surrounded by an endless ocean horizon and mile after mile of rolling vineyards, orchards, and some of the most quaint townscapes and villages you’ll ever see.
Where Lux Accommodations Meets East-Coast Hospitality
Whether you do a corporate buy-out of all 111 luxurious guest rooms, or only a portion, one thing is sure; your group will experience authentic, maritime hospitality at this five-star resort. Rounding out the offering: 13,000 sq. ft. of meeting space for up to 200 guests, a sporting lodge for a perfect hospitality suite, an oceanside lighthouse pavilion and an aircraft hangar to stage some “out of the box” themed events.
Getting to Fox Harb’r
Fly into Halifax International, a two-hour flight from New York, Boston and Toronto hubs, or a six-hour flight from London, UK or Paris, France. Incentive groups often rally in Halifax for one evening – a perfect opportunity to indulge in a lobster-fuelled Welcome to Canada event before embarking on the 90-minute scenic transfer to Fox Harb’r the next day. No time to spare? Corporate jets can fly right into Fox Harb’r’s 5,000 ft. private air strip and delegates can be sipping sun-downers in their private suites within minutes of arrival.
Why Fox Harb’r for Incentives?
Legendary golf. You’ll want to bring your A-game here. Fox Harb’r flows around a Graham Cooke designed championship golf course recognized by Golf Digest, SCORE Golf, and GOLF magazine for its blend of a front nine of traditional parkland course and a back nine of Scottish links along the rugged and dramatic Atlantic seacoast. The main 18-hole course is accompanied by a 9-hole, par 3 executive course which is ideal for sharpening short game skills. Especially for incentives, are the bragging rights of playing where the legends play; some notables who have played Fox Harb’r include Bill Clinton, Tony Blair, Bobby Orr, Wayne Gretzky, Sidney Crosby, Charles Barkley and the Fox Harb'r course record holder Tiger Woods.
Outdoor Adventure When it comes to creating a shooting experience that rivals anything in the world, Fox Harb’r aims high. The NSCA-certified clay sport shooting range, is perfect for team-building tournaments. Beyond the driving and shooting ranges, incentive winners can enjoy sea kayaking or stand-up paddle-boarding the spectacular Northumberland Shore — and depending on time of day and tides, never enter deep water. The resort’s pontoon boat cruises offer a great opportunity for wildlife watching – whales, porpoises and all manner of sea birds can be seen along the Northumberland Coast. Mount up for guided horseback rides along the resort’s beaches and forested trails, or mount a Segway for a guided excursion throughout the resort's hiking and cycling trails.

…the culinary experience at Fox Harb’r is more like Pond-to-Plate. Fox Harb’r is setting a new benchmark for “local cuisine” and sustainability. Much of the produce, fruit and herbs served in the resort’s two restaurants and banquet rooms are grown on-site in two greenhouses, garden beds and orchards across the 1,150-acre (465 hectare) resort. Fox Harb’r also serves food, wine, craft beer and spirits from many Taste of Nova Scotia producers, particularly “neighbours,” like Sugar Moon Farm maple syrup, Tatamagouche oysters and quahogs from Bay Enterprises, and Caldera Distillery whiskey, to name just three popular ingredients. This focus on real, local food also informs the resort’s Tasteful Adventures, group activities and local touring options that can include everything from seasonal salmon fishing days and a Dig & Shuck off-site lesson, to a Jam Session with chef’s preserve making and afternoon tea.
In 2017, the resort completed planting its own 25-acre (10 hectare) vineyard with partner Jost Vineyards, Nova Scotia’s oldest winery. Private tastings, group tours and more, are just steps away. And, for groups who’ve never experienced a true Canadian Lobster Supper, Fox Harb’r offers Lobster 101 for groups: how to pick, cook, crack and eat Nova Scotia’s finest seafood.
