New Brunswick travel guide

Geologic Formations · Bodies of Water · Parks
Pristine natural scenery, photogenic little towns, charming beaches, and sprawling parks remain top reasons to take a trip to New Brunswick. This relatively small Canadian province with a long Atlantic coastline remains sparsely populated, the majority of its area covered with dense forests. Five scenic drives intersect the region, allowing visitors to spend their New Brunswick holiday sightseeing from the comfort of a rented car or bicycle. If you prefer to stay near the water, don't miss the world-famous Bay of Fundy, home to the world's highest tides, several species of whales, and quaint seaside settlements maintaining their own slow pace of life.
