At a Glance

Experience the natural and human diversity of New Brunswick on this sweeping hiking journey. On a series of invigorating daily hikes, trek through two National Parks, along two seashores and back in time through the history of Aboriginal, Acadian and English cultures and a succession of ancient geological ages. On the Bay of Fundy, take part in hikes governed by the rhythm of the world’s highest tides as you walk the ocean floor out to sea caves and flowerpot rocks carved from red sandstone sea cliffs. Along the warm, tranquil waters of the northern Northumberland Straight, explore sand dunes, salt marshes, sheltered lagoons and the coastal trails of Kouchibouguac National Park. Head south into Fundy National Park, encompassing some of the last pristine wilderness bordering the Fundy Shore.
