From the parking lot, follow the path to the entrance kiosk. There you’ll find brochures and park interpreters who are highly knowledgeable about the history of the Habitation and will help you plan your visit. Interpreters are on site at all times to answer any questions you may have and point out fascinating facts about the explorers who lived here and the customs and traditions of the Mi’kmaw people. Watch too, as they re-enact many of the daily tasks needed to survive in the wilderness of the early 1600s.
In the summer, you can arrange on-site for a tour with one of our costumed interpretive guides. Interpreters are available for spring and fall visits; however, it is advised to phone ahead to arrange a guided tour.
