A fun outdoor adventure for anyone wanting to take in the sights of the natural Canadian wilderness is to go canoeing and view the landscape from a different viewpoint. In this photo a woman paddles down the Mersey River in Kejimkujik National Park, which is a National Historic Site of Canada. This historic park is located along Kejimkujik Scenic Drive on Highway 8 in Nova Scotia Canada.
Perhaps the most popular pastimes in Kejimkujik National Park is to rent a canoe and go canoeing as the park is known for its extensive waterways and rivers, even though it is the only inland National Park in the Maritimes. Due to the pristine wilderness and extensive land, the park is home to many different species of wildlife and canoeing on the rivers can be a perfect way to spot some of them without getting too close. During an adventure canoeing trip, beavers are often seen swimming in the Mersey River and are among the highlights of these great outdoors.
Canoeing along the Mersey River in Kejimkujik National Park actually means you are stepping back in time, as these same waterways were used by the Mi'kmaq people for thousands of years. They canoed these waterways and set up villages and settlements along its banks and visitors can paddle through the waters of history and have their own outdoor adventure.
