About New Brunswick

New Brunswick can be unfairly overlooked as people head to neighbouring Prince Edward Island or Nova Scotia. More fool them. They are missing out on one of Canada's unspoiled wildernesses; a playground of rivers, coastal islands, pine forests, mountains, beaches and pretty-as-a-picture villages, making it a great place to go for outdoors-y folk, nature-lovers, bird-watchers, hikers and bikers! As well as outdoor adventures, New Brunswick offers friendly cities with theatres, galleries and French-influenced shops and restaurants. And, because the province is not huge, the best places to stay in New Brunswick let you mix outdoor adventures with city fun.

What not to miss

  • Head to Sackville Waterfowl Park for a spot of puffin, Blue heron and Bald eagle spotting.
  • Visit the Bay of Fundy and go whale-watching. Afterwards, see some of the amazing rock formations down in the bay itself.
  • Go sunbathing on Parlee Beach!
  • Hike, bike, ski or kayak through Mount Carleton Park or Sugarloaf Bike Park.
  • If you're in Fredericton, the capital, check out the Beaverbrook Art Gallery!
  • Immerse yourself in the region's history at the ew Brunswick Museum in the port city of St. John.
  • Walk around the Kingsbrae Gardens of St Andrews-by-the-Sea.
  • Take a trip to Campobello Island to visit the Roosevelt Campobello International Park whose chief attraction is the arts-and-crafts-style cottage where the future President grew up and later regularly visited.

An enchanting region of wilderness, New Brunswick is as beautiful as it is unspoilt, a playground for nature-lovers, hikers and bikers. Find out more by browsing our list of the best places to stay in New Brunswick!
