Encompassing Caraquet, Tracadie-Sheila, Neguac, and the Acadian Islands Road regions, find an entirely different French spirit on the Acadian Peninsula in New Brunswick.

The Acadian flag is proudly flown in the region and many of the traditions live on. Music, folklore, food and even the language is a little different from the French spoken in neighbouring Québec. Visitors to the area will enjoy sandy beaches, welcoming communities, and fresh, local seafood.

Visit the village of Caraquet, founded in 1757 by Acadian refugees from Nova Scotia and one of the oldest of the settlements on the Acadian Peninsula. Caraquet has a bustling, colourful fishing port and the fascinating small Acadian Museum. 15 km (9 miles) to the west of Caraquet is the Acadian Historic Village, a major reconstruction of life in the 1800s and an intriguing contrast to the relative prosperity of English-speaking Kings Landing near Fredericton.
