The Rossignol Classic Canoe Trip will begin with a rendevous at the historic Jake’s Landing, in Kejimkujik National Park and National Historic Site where you’ll meet your guide and fellow trippers. Our guide will facilitate putting the final touches on packing, and after a delicious lunch we’ll shuttle to the Mersey River where we’ll take to the water to knock the rust off our paddling strokes.
Clear, dark waters and rocky shores melt away as we explore and paddle to our first night’s campsite. Along the way we’ll pick our course through the narrow stone-choked channels, and may even discover ancient Mi’kmaq artifacts. Old stumps stud the beautiful waterway, relics of a time before the shores of Rossignol rose in the early 1900’s. Campsites are plentiful on Nova Scotia’s largest freshwater lake, many with a unique history and either a sunrise or sunset vantage. Spend the next few days exploring this historic lake choked with history and lore before returning to Jake’s Landing in Keji. Heck, you might even find legendary author Zane Gray’s infamous fishing boat!
