Kejimkujik is one of Nova Scotia’s darkest sky opportunities and a great chance to view stars and other celestial bodies through a telescope, binoculars, or with the naked eye. Outdoor shows “ponder extraterrestrial life and interstellar phenomena alongside incredible imagery, music, and stories,” and night hikes and campfire programs educate visitors on how humans and wildlife have been affected by light pollution. Occasional night-time canoe excursions take night-sky appreciation to the next level.
Nova Scotia is a beautiful island province to explore. Old Town Lunenburg, one hour from Kejimkujik, is one of only two urban communities in North America designated as a UNESCO World Heritage site.
