OptiMYz goes hiking at Kejimkujik National Park and Historic Site in Nova Scotia, April 2012. It was a 15km return hike and included an overnight stay in a Yurt.

Yurts were originated by the nomadic Mongols as dwellings and are still used today by some cultures, mostly in Central Asia.

Keji is one of only a few National Parks that offer Yurts to campers. These Yurts can be rented for a night or more and come fully equipped with 4 bunk beds, a wood stove, table, a pot, firewood and an outhouse on site.

It is difficult to find out information on how to rent these Yurts on-line, so call your local Parks Canada office to find out more information.

Get outdoors! Plan your next Parks Canada trip today.
