In 2012, The Landscape of Grand Pré in the picturesque Bay of Fundy & Annapolis Valley region became Canada’s 16th UNESCO World Heritage Site. The 13 square-kilometre (5 mi²) site includes acres of tended farmland that pay homage to the dyke system first built by 17th century Acadian settlers on land reclaimed from the sea. The area is also the scenic setting for American poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow’s narrative poem Evangeline: A Tale of Acadie. Learn about the Acadian Deportation at the Grand Pré National Historic Site which is located within the area designated the Landscape of Grand Pré UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Explore this area, bordered by lush farmland and prolific vineyards producing award-winning wines and discover wine tours and tastings, local farmers' markets, and restaurants that provide the delicious opportunity to combine a fascinating cultural and culinary experience.
