"The Bay of Fundy... this place is mighty spectacular."- Lynn M.
Hike the famous Fundy Footpath.
Sea kayak to hidden coves on the island of Grand Manan.
Visit cute fishing villages along the seashore.
Enjoy the hidden treasures of Canada. New Brunswick is most known for the spectacular Bay of Fundy, where the world’s largest tidal changes occur. Indulge in freshly caught seafood and the stunning views of the Atlantic Ocean while traveling through small fishing villages.
Start in Saint John, a hip city on the coast where you will first become acquainted with the drastic tides. Take a ferry to the fishing island Grand Manan and sea kayak to secret coves while keeping an eye out for rare birds and marine life. Return to the mainland and hike along the coast on the famous Fundy Footpath. Experience private beaches and breathtaking ocean vistas.
Travel independently to Saint John. Overnight in a centrally located four star hotel.
Today we transfer by ferry to the small island of Grand Manan. We’ll spend the afternoon touring the island before heading out on a sunset kayaking exploration of the beautiful, secluded coves.
Take in the breathtaking scenery on this coastal hike from Seal Cove to Pat’s Cove via Flocks of Sheep. The name comes from fishermen thinking these large white granite boulders, placed by glaciers on top of the black lava spires, looked like flocks of sheep. Along the hike, reclaimed lobster traps serve as benches that overlook the ocean and remote beaches. Delight in an afternoon whale watching excursion.
Today is a travel day. We return back to the mainland by ferry and drive up the coast to the village of St. Martins. Enjoy an afternoon walk along the beach. If the tide is right we will visit the famous sea caves.
Enjoy a spectacular hike up the first part of the Fundy Footpath. Well-deserved beautiful coastal views abound from all angles as steep ascents and descents make the Footpath challenging. The trail crew has built cabled stairs to make the steepest sections easier. Untouched and unfrequented beaches make for perfect rest breaks and picnic spots.
In the morning, we’ll transfer back to Cradle Brook to continue the next section. More coastal vistas abound along the longest stretch of wilderness coastline on the Eastern Seaboard. We’ll return to our charming country inn with time to relax or visit the Quaco Head Lighthouse.
Today is our last day on the Fundy Footpath. We begin at Martin Head and will finish at Rose Brook. For this section, we must really be mindful of the tidal changes, as some parts of the trail are only accessible at low tide. Tonight we’ll dine on delicious Atlantic Salmon as part of our farewell beach barbecue.
Have breakfast and depart.
