Canoe trips on the Mersey River in Kejimkujik National Park is a common and really fun way to spend your vacation or even a nice sunny day outside. This park, a National Park and a National Historic Site of Canada, is the only inland national park in the Maritime provinces and has so many waterways, lakes and rivers, that it makes an ideal location for a canoe trip.
Historic canoe routes can also be found here, so you can canoe down these waterways and get an ideal viewpoint of what explorers would have seen when they canoed down these same waterways many years ago. People can take group canoe trips that involve camping in the park as well, or there are many places to go to just spend one day there and perhaps do some hiking, as there are also excellent backpacking and hiking trails in this undeveloped region as well.
Over 80 percent of this park is only accessible by canoe or by hiking in, so many people do canoe here as it is the easiest way to reach some of the most beautiful scenery in the whole province. As this park is a National Historic Site it is protected by the Canadian Government so that it won't be developed at all and will remain untouched in it natural beauty for years to come.
