Mon, May 9, 2016 to Sun, Oct 16, 2016
Explore Kejimkujik National Park and National Historic Site’s classic 3-day canoe adventure. This route has been traveled by many over the decades of park history, and for good reason! Comfortable campsites, a variety of small Nova Scotian lakes and a beautiful river to explore. Tired of smoke-in-your-eyes cooking? Don’t want to deal with those post meal dishes? Having a tough time hanging the perfect pitch on your tarp? No problem: Enjoy the convenience and luxury of a fully guided and fully catered backcountry adventure with one of our experienced guides.
This is a fully guided 3-day backcountry canoe adventure.
Join your guide at Jake’s Landing where you’ll load up and shuttle to the Big Dam parking lot with all your gear. The adventure begins with a short and gentle portage into Big Dam lake. A campsite is only a short paddle away at a relaxing pace. On hot days you can enjoy a swim from a canoe floatilla, or take in the shade under an ancient hemlock tree. Big Dam is oriented with the prevailing winds and makes for enjoyable bug-free paddling during the early season!
Take advantage of maintained campsites with cooking grills and picnic tables, groomed portage trails and Parks outhouses, without loosing a sense of wilderness and adventure. This trip perfectly blends luxury and comfort with Nova Scotia’s unforgettable landscape creating an adventure perfect for anyone to enjoy. This trip is especially suited for families!
One of the best aspects of this trip is that it is a loop, allowing you to finish back at Jake’s Landing just where you started (and parked your car!).
