Take time to explore the inland area of forest, lakes and streams that is Kejimkujik National Park, 75 mi/120 km west of Halifax. Kejimkujik Lake has many secluded coves. Look for wildlife such as black bears, white-tailed deer, barred owls, woodpeckers, beavers, bobcats, loons, scarlet tanagers, the rare Blanding's turtle and great crested flycatchers.
The park has 57 mi/91 km of backcountry trails for cross-country skiing in winter and hiking in summer, as well as a lakeside camping area with a sandy beach and parking facilities. Book early for campsites in summer months or, for a different experience, try winter camping in one of the park's shelters.
The Kejimkujik Seaside Adjunct is a natural reserve along the Atlantic coast (50 mi/80 km south of the main park) where you can walk along nature trails to reach the water. Harbor seals are often seen perching on the rocks.
