Trip Highlights:

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.

Trip Itinerary

Arrive at Saint John airport and transfer by taxi to your centrally located hotel, where you will begin to see the famous Bay of Fundy tidal changes. Your guide will meet you for cocktails and dinner at 7 pm.

A morning transfer takes us to the charming village of Saint Martins where we’ll enjoy an afternoon walk along the beach. If the tide is right we will visit the famous sea caves, and embark on an afternoon kayak trip out into the bay with Red Rock. Tonight is the first of four nights we will spend at on St. Martins.

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 assist you on the steepest sections. Untouched and unfrequented beaches make for perfect rest breaks and picnic spots.

In the morning, we’ll transfer back to Cradle Brook to continue on the Footpath. More 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 will dine on delicious Atlantic Salmon at our beach barbecue.

Today we transfer back via Saint John and by ferry to the small island of Grand Manan. After checking into our hotel, a former sea captain’s home, we’ll spend the afternoon exploring North Head. In the evening we will head to the water for a sunset sea kayak exploration of the beautiful, secluded coves, where it’s not unusual to spot whales. Harbor porpoises and seals are famous for following kayaks around.

We begin the day with a wonderful whale watching excursion followed by breathtaking scenery on the coastal hike from Seal Cove to Pat’s Cove via Flocks of Sheep. The name comes from fishermen thinking these large white granite boulders on top of the black lava spires, placed there by glaciers, looked like flocks of sheep. Along the hike, reclaimed lobster traps serve as benches that overlook the ocean and remote beaches. We spend another night at our inn on Grand Manan.

Ryder Walker will provide a morning transfer to Saint John Airport.

*Note: Daily itineraries on all our guided treks are subject to change. Your guide(s) will make route decisions based on weather and terrain conditions, as well as hikers’ abilities.
