Nova Scotia. An overnight canoe trip is a wonderful way to immerse yourself in the backcountry vibe of Kejimkujk National Park and Historical Site. It was first designated as a National Park in 1969 and is considered the second largest biosphere reserve in Canada.
In the historic routes of the Mi’kmaq, there are places were the water runs fast and places where the water is placid. Most of the local creatures seem laid back.
On the land, you can walk along old growth forests. Be careful where you step because Kejimkujik comes from the Mi’kmaw word kejimkuji’jk ( little fairies). At night, you can gaze into the open skies of stars.
Kejimkujk covers a wide swath (404 square miles) of land in the south and this sort of trip can help you feel satisfied that you didn’t skip any of Nova Scotia on your visit.
While not equipped with the modern comforts of home, Kejimkujk National Park makes up for what it lacks in its mellow vibes and lovely scenery. I recommend it.
