Welcome to New Brunswick, a place where the tides are high and the people are friendly! The province is equal parts culture, nature, and adventure, but this trip is all about how those parts all combine to create the rich history of the Bay of Fundy. From villages with cliffs shaped by time to cottages beloved by FDR and Eleanor Roosevelt, this trip along the coast lines of New Brunswick will have you discovering a new reason to love Atlantic Canada at every stop.
Experience the highest and lowest tides in the world at the Bay of Fundy.
Go on a whale watching excursion in the Fundy Isles Archipelago.
Hike in the UNESCO Fundy Biosphere Reserve, seeing waterfalls, beaches, and “flowerpot rocks” along the way.
Stay at the historic Algonquin Resort.
Kayak past the world famous St. Martins sea caves.
Explore the historic town of St. Andrews- by-the-Sea, one of the best-preserved examples of North American colonial heritage
Get picked up from the Saint John airport and shuttle to the city of Saint John. A drive to the Hilton in Saint John is only 20 minutes! Flights into Saint John are extremely accessible and only a few hours from many east coast cities. That night, enjoy a welcome dinner with your guides and the people you’ll be travelling with in the Uptown area of Saint John.
Have breakfast at the Hilton’s York Bistro before walking the historic uptown of Saint John, Canada’s oldest incorporated city. A walk in the Irving Nature Park, located just outside the city is a great introduction to the fresh air you can expect New Brunswick to deliver on. Depart for the Village of St. Martins. Tour the Village and learn about the rich cultural history. From shipbuilding families to women ship captains, your connection to the region is hidden in the stories.
After breakfast at your Inn, travel to the Fundy Trail and explore part of the longest stretch of wilderness coastline on the seaboard. Then, discover the Bay from the water in by sea kayak. Paddle along the famous St. Martins Sea Caves, and find out just how tides and time shape these coastlines. After that, tour the Village and learn about the rich cultural history. From shipbuilding families to women ship captains, your connection to the region is hidden in the stories. Enjoy your last night in St. Martins by having a beach BBQ with your guides.
Enjoy your final morning in St. Martins before departing west to the Fundy Isles Archipelago. Ferry through the islands on your way to Campobello, where you will check in to the historical Roosevelt Cottages at the Roosevelt Campobello International Park. Among all the highlights of the day, the greatest is tea With Eleanor. Experience the life and lore of the First Lady through stories from locals about her time on the beloved island.
This day is certainly a day of exploration and discovery. After departing the Adams House, travel the same carriage roads the Roosevelt’s travelled on to hike along the same beaches they frequented. Have lunch at the world famous Head Harbour Lighthouse before heading out to sea in search of whales. If you’re lucky, you could see the Finback Whale, reaching sizes up to 89 feet, this is the second largest animal in the world and entirely awe-inspiring. Head back to the Roosevelt Cottages to have cocktails with FDR, followed by a lobster dinner.
Breakfast and some free time on Campobello ease you into your short boat ride to the town of St. Andrews-by-the-Sea. Have the afternoon to explore St. Andrews for yourself before attending a farewell dinner at the highly regarded Rossmount Inn.
One last breakfast together at the Algonquin Resort before you are shuttled to the Saint John Airport and head home.
