The Evangeline Trail Book


Start your journey in the historic seaport of Yarmouth. Yarmouth, which is about 3 hours from Halifax, is the hub of this south western tip of Nova Scotia. This area is renowned for its Acadian history and it is speckled with colourful fishing villages, towering churches and the spectacular Cape Forchu lighthouse. Tourists will also discover the oldest courthouse in Canada, the largest wooden church in North America, and museums and galleries. Over 400 years of Acadian history make this area ideal for exploring the French-speaking villages. Explore Acadian culture through the museums and music festivals.

The Evangeline Trail hugs the Bay of Fundy coast and is home to some of North America’s earliest European settlements. Bring your camera to capture the delightful villages, orchards and vineyards of the Annapolis Valley. An area rich in farms and fishing villages steeped in culture, charm and natural beauty.

Migrating shore birds, whales and diverse marine life can be found in July and early August refuelling on the natural bounty of the bay and on the mud shrimp exposed by the receding Fundy tides. The power of nature is evident all along the Evangeline trail, with its world-famous tides and ever-changing landscape of rocky shores, fertile farmlands, salt marshes and broad sandy beaches. Visit with our member B&Bs and learn more first hand. This area is a naturalist’s dream!

Explore the Bay of Fundy where you can watch the highest tides in the world. Go whale watching, hiking, kayaking along the rugged coast, try some world famous Digby Scallops or simply enjoy watching the high tides along the Bay of Fundy. Explore historic farms and fishing villages along the coast. The fertile Annapolis Valley is home to the world famous apples orchards and the Nova Scotia wine region
