2- Annapolis Royal

At The Eastern end of the Annapolis Valley lies the historic and picturesque town of Annapolis Royal. It was near here that Samuel de Champlain built the fur trading post of Port Royal in 1605. A purely commercial venture, this was the first European settlement in the New World north of Florida. The Port Royal National Historic Site is an exact replica of the original colony, based on French farms of the period, from plans drawn by Champlain.

An hour’s drive inland from Annapolis Royal lies Kejimkujik National Park, which covers 381 square km (148 sq miles) of inland wilderness laced with sparkling lakes and rivers. Throughout the park there are numerous paddling routes and 15 hiking trails, ranging from short walks to a 60-km (37-mile) perimeter wilderness and wildlife trail.
