New Brunswick


New Brunswick is an unspoiled wilderness of winding river routes to cultural corridors to coastal byways. 

The culture of the French colonists or “Acadians” is still present today in the arts, outdoor adventures and warm hospitality found in New Brunswick.  With over 1500 registered historic places, NB has many stories to tell. Learn the ancient legacy of the Mi’kmaq at Metepenagiag Heritage Park. Step into real Acadian time at Village Historique Acadien.

With a dozen provincial and national parks, you can hike majestic peaks or discover spectacular coastline vistas. New Brunswick introduces you to whales, bears, a plethora of birds including Atlantic puffins and other marine and wild animals. 

From Nova Scotia sail to Saint John to begin your explorations. If time allows, spend the night in Saint John. Not to be confused with “St John” in Newfoundland, this busy little cruise port is home to the Reversing Falls Bridge, historic architecture and Irving Nature Park, popular for birdwatching. 

To the north, the city of Fredericton sits on the Saint John River and puts you close to nature. Kayak on the river or bike the miles of riverside trails. Spend time in the historic Garrison District. Absorb the artistic climate of the local crafts and music scene. Check out the restaurants and hip new micro- breweries. 

The city of Moncton, with its strong Acadian culture, puts you close to plenty of NB entertainment. Nearby Hopewell Rocks is a top attraction where you can walk over a mile of beach and explore coves at low tide. See the famous Tidal Bore, a twice daily phenomenon caused by the Bay of Fundy. Moncton provides access to outdoor activities including fine sandy beaches and a host of parks. Take a day trip to Kouchibouguac National Park.
