New Brunswick is renowned for being home to the Bay of Fundy, washed each day by the world’s highest tides.
Fundy National Park
Along this dramatic coastline you will also find Fundy National Park, the Hopewell Rocks, the vibrant city of Saint John, and charming Passamaquoddy Bay. The nearby islands of Grand Manan and Campobello are enchanting retreats from the modern world.
The provincial capital is Fredericton, a city of genteel villas and art galleries, whilst the pretty nearby village of Gagetown is famed for its old riverside houses.
Kouchibouguac National Park
To the east are the wonderful sand dunes and lagoons of Kouchibouguac National Park and the world-famous salmon fishing river, the Mirimichi.
The Caraquet region is home to many Acadian settlers and is an area where the 20th century has yet to gain a foothold. Other attractions include the leafy resort town of St. Andrews, Tidal Bore Park and Magnetic Hill in Moncton, Grand Falls Gorge and Fort Beausejour historic site.
