New Brunswick is Canada’s hidden gem just waiting to be discovered on foot.

Most travellers are drawn to the Bay of Fundy’s Hopewell Rocks for stunning views and to experience the world’s highest tides by walking the ocean floor before it fills with up to 14m/46ft of water within hours.

But did you know that further west along the Bay lies one of the last remaining stretches of coastal wilderness on the east coast of North America?

The UNESCO Fundy Biosphere reserve hosts impressive flora and fauna and is home to the remote and rugged Fundy Footpath – a 49km/30mi section of the Trans Canada Trail requiring well-timed tidal crossings and navigation, not to mention some strong quads to get you up and down multiple switchbacks and ladders.

But there is more to this province than the Bay of Fundy. Each of New Brunswick’s 9 provincial parks offers a uniquely different experience.

The northwest of the province features the highest peak in the Maritimes, Mount Carleton, nestled in the Appalachian Mountains which stretch from the state of Maine, across the border and all the way through to Newfoundland.

The province’s northeast features the charming Acadian Coast known for its living history, fresh seafood, and warm water beaches; And much of the province’s landscape is influenced by its rivers, including the mighty Miramichi and St. John.
