New Brunswick Holidays

EASY BREEZY NEW BRUNSWICK

In the east of Canada, pint-sized New Brunswick is associated with pristine wilderness and fantastic seafood. The province is served by several small airports, meaning it’s easily reached from cities like Montreal and Toronto. Often, though, New Brunswick holidays are taken as part of a longer road trip through Canada’s Maritime Provinces, or the north-eastern states of the USA.

It may feel a little remote but, once you begin to explore New Brunswick, you won’t give the journey a second thought. Most famous for the Bay of Fundy – where the world’s highest tides create reversing waterfalls and disappearing beaches – New Brunswick is a region of endless adventure. It’s ideal for families, as the natural world here offers many inspiring and educational experiences.

More than 42,000 acres of wilderness offer a range of hiking trails and outdoor activities, while the 820-metre Mount Carleton boasts spectacular views across the whole province. You can see 12 species of whale in plentiful numbers in the Bay of Fundy, and off the Acadian Coast. Atlantic puffin, white-sided dolphin, harbour porpoise, and four species of seal also call the province their home. If you’re really lucky, you might also spot black bears, particularly in the wilderness along the banks of the Miramichi River.

Not sure where to base yourself for your New Brunswick holiday? Vibrant cities and historic towns such as Moncton, Fredericton, Saint John and Caraquet are all great spots from which to explore. You’ll find lots of bars, galleries, markets and museums in each, while the restaurants across the province serve up some of the finest seafood in Canada. You can immerse yourself in New Brunswick’s rich history at Fredericton’s Garrison District, or visit one of the museum villages, like 19th-century Kings Landing. In the province’s northeast, meanwhile, you can learn about the 18th-century lives of the province’s early French settlers at Village Historique Acadien.Tempted?

Things to do in New Brunswick

You’ll find endless things to do on a holiday to New Brunswick. You can marvel at the dynamic geological features around the dramatic tides of the Bay of Fundy, or sail across the waters in search of pods of whales. These waters are home to an incredible 12 different species of whale.

For some culture, you can wander the Victorian Streets of Saint John, browse King Street’s art galleries, and see John Hooper’s colourful sculptures among the sidewalk cafes of Market Square.

Explore Beaverbook Art Galery, or step back in time when you visit the living historical villages of Kings Landing and Village Historique Acadien. Spend a day in the life of a soldier at Fredericton’s Garrison District, and watch the Changing of the Guard.

Elsewhere, from the peak of Mount Carleton, you can look down on 10 million trees across the vast wilderness. And, at the end of an action-packed day, you can taste the world-famous oysters of Caraquet, the lobster of Shediac, and the fresh salmon of the Miramichi River.

The Bay of Fundy

New Brunswick beats to the rhythm of the Bay of Fundy’s epic 19-metre tides – the highest in the world – as they continually reveal and re-cover the dramatic coastal landscape. At high-tide, Hopewell Rocks are tree-topped islands waiting to be discovered by kayak tours. But at low-tide they become towering rock structures, casting huge shadows across hidden beaches.

For unrivalled views of the flowing waters, cross Reversing Falls Bridge and step out onto the glass Skywalk Saint John. Take the Fundy Trail Parkway from St Martins – either by car or bike – to explore miles of cliffs, hidden beaches and sea caves, interspersed with craft shops and cafés. And don’t miss the 84-metre suspension footbridge over Big Salmon River.

Want to see some wildlife? Sail out to Grand Manan Island. As well as being one of the best bird-watching spots in North America, this place is home to tuna, whales and dolphins.

Moncton & the Acadian Coast

Vibrant Moncton is within a short drive of both the Bay of Fundy and the Acadian Coast, making it the ideal base from which to explore New Brunswick. The city itself thrives with restaurants, cocktail bars and a colourful street-art scene, while acres of country trails can be found in Centennial Park and Jonathan Creek on the edges of town.

Less than an hour’s drive south, Cape Enrage serves up kayaking, rock-climbing and zip-lining. On the low-tide Barn Marsh Island Beach, 320-million-year-old fossils tumble from exposed cliffs onto the sands. Or you could head north to the gravity-defying Magnetic Hill. Visit the zoo, follow the giant lobster to Shediac, or spend an afternoon paddling in the waters of Parlee Beach. Or stroll along the Dunes Boardwalk in the beautiful fishing village of Bouctouche, to reach the stunning beaches beyond.

Best time to visit the New Brunswick

Outdoorsy New Brunswick attracts explorers from April, when the snows melt, through to November, when they return. Between June and early September, you can expect dry days and high temperatures of 20°C. This is when New Brunswick is at its busiest, especially popular areas like the Bay of Fundy and the Acadian Coast above Moncton. But, with such a vast range of places to see, it’s easy to escape to somewhere quieter, if you wish.

April to May or September to October is the best time to visit New Brunswick. Temperatures are still mild and there are fewer crowds. You might still need to pack a jumper or two, but there shouldn’t be any restrictions on the activities you can enjoy. Winter is cold – often below freezing – and heavy snowfall is common in many areas. That said, it’s perfect for snow-lovers and cross-country skiers.
