Experience the Indian Summer in Canada

Nova Scotia in Canada, along with some New England states in the USA, offers the most impressive Indian Summer in all of North America. In autumn especially, the backland of the province invites you to a breathtaking explosion of colours. Seemingly endless forests with brightly coloured deciduous trees. What a glow of yellow, orange and red! From the second or third week of September, the color explosion begins. Then the leaves of the oak, alder and maple trees begin to turn from green to red to dark purple. The forests of Canada offer up to 800 different tree species. In comparison, no more than 50 different species occur across Europe.

Where does the expression “Indian Summer” come from? One is not quite in agreement. An attempt at explanation is that the indigenous population knew how to use this time sensibly and saw it as the last resort for collecting winter supplies.
