Kejimkujik National Park and National Historic Site

Kejimkujik National Park and National Historic Site is located in the South Shore Region of Nova Scotia. Plan to spend a full day or several days here.

Kejimkujik is the only national park to also be designated a national historic site, and the only inland national park in Atlantic Canada. Listen to the tale of the Mi’kmaq, carved in stone and shared through stories and legends. Reconnect with nature – Kejimkujik’s backcountry feels like a world away, yet is so easily accessible.

Kejimkujik Seaside

Kejimkujik Seaside is 180 kilometres from Halifax and 99 kilometres southeast of Kejimkujik National Park and National Historic Site. Plan to spend a half- or full-day at Kejimkujik Seaside.

An authentic Atlantic experience awaits you at Kejimkujik Seaside. You can hike through a labyrinth of dense shrubs on your way to the coast. Gradually, the horizon opens up to an expansive view of the Atlantic shoreline with headlands, islands, and bays. Once you arrive at the observation deck, your eyes will be riveted by the pure white sweep of Saint Catherines River Beach. This shining crescent of sand will enchant you with its turquoise waters.
