Southern New Brunswick offers the perfect opportunity to spend a day outdoors while you discover 16km of seaside beauty. Fundy Trail winds through one of North America’s last remaining coastal wilderness areas. This perfect retreat is open to both hikers and cyclists to explore. Take your time adventuring, as visitors quickly stumble upon stairways to private beaches, concealed waterfalls and cliffs displaying awe-inspiring views of the waters below. During your adventures at the Bay of Fundy, take a peak as the Bay fills and empties nearly 100 billion tonnes of water, creating the highest tides in the world; in some areas of the Bay, the waves reach more than 16 m.

Located near the Island’s south shore, this peaceful hike is a wonderful way to experience the Canadian countryside.
