What our specialists say...

New Brunswick is one of three maritime provinces, and probably the least visited. However, the expansive landscape is easily explored by car and the characterful Acadian culture pervades through the interesting townships and traditional fishing communities. This itinerary starts in Novia Scotia but soon takes you in to New Brunswick, along the Acadian Coast and then inland along the Miramichi River. You then spend a few days exploring the southern Bay of Fundy Coast - famous for its enormous tides and wildlife - before returning to Halifax.

We recommend this trip for:

  • Halifax
  • Moncton
  • Miramichi
  • Fredericton
  • St Andrews by the Sea
  • Grand Manan Island
  • Saint John
  • Alma
