Nova Scotia is brimming with beautiful parks with environments ranging from white sand beaches to rolling highlands. While there is no shortage of stunning spots to explore, we’ve put together a list of the best that the province has to offer.

Kejimkujik National Park and National Historic Site

Kejimkujik is actually one park split into two locations. Explore the main park, located inland, or head to the Seaside Adjunct along the South Shore. The park’s name is a Mi’kmaq word believed to mean “land where fairies abound,” which perfectly describes the magic and beauty of the park.
