Annapolis Valley Tourism

Annapolis Valley Tourism

Each town and village in the Annapolis Valley and along the Evangeline Trail provides a unique glimpse of the area and is worthy of attention. Whether it is tasting the famous Digby scallops or discovering the mystery of the Bay of Fundy tides, there is something to tempt everyone's appetite.

The Evangeline Trail is a six-hour drive through the lovely Annapolis Valley and along the Acadian region bordering St. Marys Bay. Apple orchards, strawberry fields, clam beds, scallop shuckers, lookoffs, incredible tides, whale watching, historic sites - it's all to be found in the Land of Evangeline.

The Annapolis Valley is flanked by what are known locally as the North and South Mountains, although they are really more like ridges. The Valley takes its name from the Annapolis River, but also includes the valleys formed by the Cornwallis, Canard and Gaspereau Rivers.

Famous for its apple harvest, the Annapolis Valley boasts 55 more days of sun than other areas of Nova Scotia. Summer temperatures can range up to 30 degrees C (86 degrees F), although average daily temperature in the Valley is 23 degrees C (75 degrees F); evenings cool to a pleasant 16 degrees C (60 degrees F). Perfect weather to enjoy golf, tennis, swimming and other sports! The Annapolis Valley region boasts a golf course every 32 km.

The Annapolis Valley is the oldest settled region of Canada, and heritage enthusiasts and history buffs will enjoy the many museums and historic sites that dot the Valley. Acadia University in Wolfville, Canada's oldest university, and the Universite Sainte- Anne in Church Point are well worth visits.

The Annapolis Valley offers an abundance of exciting and entertaining experiences:
• Spend an enjoyable day at the Oaklawn Farm Zoo. Located near Aylesford, it is the only zoo in Nova Scotia.
• Take in the sights, sounds, rides and displays found at the Upper Clements Park and Wildlife Park in Upper Clements, Annapolis County.
• Valley nightlife includes dancing, live theatre and various festivals.
• If you enjoy the outdoors, spend a weekend or a week camping, canoeing or exploring the four corners of the Valley.
• If you like, you can go on an enjoyable trail ride.
• For the energetic visitor, a hike to see the magnificent view from Cape Split is not to be missed.
• You may also wish to visit the famous Kejimikujik National Park. Located just south of the Annapolis Valley, Kejimikujik National Park offers visiters and campers a wide variety of exciting outdoor experiences.  
• Seals, porpoises, seabirds and spouting whales are just some of the spectacular wildlife you can see in the nearby Bay of Fundy.
