Mi'kma'ki or old Acadie; Nova Scotia is definitely a "corner stone" province of our great Canadian Heritage. Whether it is by land or water, along the inner perimeter of the fascinating Bay of Fundy; site of the highest tides on earth, the jagged Atlantic coast interspersed with stunning beaches, the ever changing scenery leading to "out of this world" Cape Breton Island, you will be touched by the rich heritage of our regions...
Besides, as a landfall for people since time immemorial,
"Canada's Ocean Playground" is tantamount with, hospitality.
Land of long gone dinosaurs who left prints and fossils for us!
11,000 years old, "Mi'kma'ki"; sacred land of the First People

Heart of old Acadie, home of Évangeline

Novacadie, time travels with you through the eras with a sensitive blend of enjoyment and discovery!
We offer you the opportunity to experience in many ways, the exact locations where the forefathers landed and transplanted seventeenth century France into the new lands of this continent.
To this effect, we owe so much to fascinating historical figures like Champlain and his contemporaries, who have left us documented evidence of our noble beginings as a people of Canada. Indeed, we can rejoice at the fact that the French explorers established a good relationship between them, who were the visitors and the Natives, their hosts. Friendly rapports that would bring on equal partnering and alliances in the future.
As most people around the globe will attest, nothing could ever bring people closer together then to share great food and hospitality at once!
In Canada, this historical pride has a name, it was called :
''l'Ordre du Bon Temps''
" The Order of Good Cheers "
Four centuries after its creation, one can still embrace the human principles of solidarity as well as the joy of becoming " member " of the oldest social club in North America.
