Sprawling vistas, mighty rivers and the great outdoors, New Brunswick gives you space to breathe and natural wonders that will take your breath away. Stroll the boardwalk through a rare sand dune, hike majestic trails of Fundy National Park, and relax on endless saltwater beaches. Autumn is a special time to visit to witness the changing colours of the leaves to fiery reds, yellows and golds.
Filled with sandy beaches, storied rivers, peaceful valleys and part of the oldest mountain range in North America, New Brunswick is renowned for its awe-inspiring nature. Take a leisurely climb up Mount Carleton, the highest peak in the Maritimes, for an incredible view. Canoe down or camp alongside one of our many legendary rivers, known for reeling in the mighty Atlantic salmon. Watch the water flow under the world’s longest covered bridge. Hike among the lush forests and tranquil streams of Fundy National Park or on a hot, sunny day splash in Canada’s warmest saltwater beaches at Kouchibouguac National Park. Gaze at abundant wildlife including moose, bears and deer. Autumn is a season not to be missed; the changing colours of the leaves create magnificent swirls of colour, like an artist’s palette, stretching as far as the eye can see.
Enjoy a one-of-kind experience with the Bay of Fundy as your phenomenal backdrop. Home to the world’s highest tides, discover why it was voted Canada’s top natural wonder in a global competition. Witness the power of 160 billion tonnes of water flowing back-and forth twice a day. At Hopewell Rocks, kayak around intriguing 350 million year old rock formations and at low tide, walk on the ocean floor. Hop aboard a Tall Ship and set sail in search of majestic whales. Spot an endangered species, the North Atlantic Right Whale, with only 350 remaining on the planet.
Thanks to the British, Irish, Scottish, French Acadian and First Nations influences through the generations, New Brunswick is wonderfully diverse full of festivals, food, celebrations and history. Here, you’ll always find welcoming hospitality and a warm, friendly smile.
