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.

Plunge into the heart of the Acadian History and culture

We offer 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.
New France begins here in Acadie, should we say it again?

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 and his fellow artisans established a good relationship between themselves as 'new settlers' in a totally different environment.  Amazingly, friendly rapports between themselves, the visitors and the Natives, their hosts would rapidly bring on, equal partnering and sharing of the land and waterways contributed to everlasting 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 started here in Port Royal
by the sieur de Champlain himself!
It was called :

''l'Ordre du Bon Temps''

" The Order of Good Cheers "

SAM 0867  inside Habitation  lHabitation de Port Royal circa 1605

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.

When we talk to Acadians and about Acadie, we really call on millions of people scattered all over the world. It is referred as "the Acadian Diaspora".  Novacadie wishes to act as a meeting place and/or intermediary for us all. 
A vehicle to help us re-connect with one another through the land!  That is why we invite you to construct your own heritage travel experience.
We will make it happen!
