Scenic St. John & Beyond

Located along the Bay of Fundy, Saint John is the province’s largest city. Canada’s longest-running farmers market, the City Market, provides a charming introduction to the foods and crafts of this region. The region’s natural beauty can be explored at Reversing Falls and King’s Square. Celebrate New Brunswick’s cultural heritage by exploring the small towns of the Acadia region. Here, French foods, language and culture still thrive.

Tidepools and Natural Treasures

Marvel at the world’s highest tides with a visit to the Bay of Fundy. During low tide, you can walk along the ocean floor, looking for treasures in the tide pools. As the tides come in, the waters deepen, providing paddlers a unique landscape to explore. Nearby Fundy National Park offers over 62 miles of trails, passing waterfalls and pristine lakes and taking hikers through the verdant Acadian forest.
