Begin your Annapolis Valley adventure in Grand Pré, home of Grand-Pré National Historic Site, located within the larger Landscape of Grand Pré UNESCO World Heritage Centre – one of three UNESCO Heritage Sites in Nova Scotia – once the epicentre of Acadian culture.
Take in the amazing smells of unique herbs and fruits at Tangled Garden. The property features the owner’s private home along with an extensive herb garden, a labyrinth, art gallery and shop.
Step foot in Canada’s oldest National Historic Site at Fort Anne National Historic Site. For centuries, a succession of Scottish, French, First Nations and English settlers clashed over this prize on the banks of Nova Scotia’s Annapolis River. Come back after dark for the Candlelight Graveyard Tour.
A short detour from the Evangeline Trail, you’ll find Kejimkujik National Park and National Historic Site. Discover rock engravings known as petroglyphs, evidence of the presence of the Mi’kmaw people from thousands of years ago.
Hike one (or more!) of Kejimkujik’s 14, day hiking trails or explore these traditional waterways by canoe. Canoe rentals and tours are available within the park from Whynot Adventure Outfitters.
