Go With the Tides, Acadian Coast & Bay of Fundy Isles
Departing September 12, 2023
Experience New Brunswick’s most fascinating natural phenomenon from the coastline at its highest and lowest tides. As we explore the Acadian coast, you’ll quickly discover that while the rich ecosystem would be enough to make this trip a fantastic one, it’s the hospitality and willingness of its inhabitants to share their stories that really make it so memorable. Whether hiking with an interpretive knowledge keeper of the Mi’kmaq Cultural Center or participating in a marine citizen project along the Fundy Isles, this itinerary showcases the most interesting aspects of life along the Bay of Fundy. A walk in the UNESCO Fundy Biosphere reserve is a must to look into the impressive flora and fauna of the region. With a great network of trails, the forested trails bring you to beautiful waterfalls and the geological history of millions of years of erosion of rock formations, whether on the ocean floor at Hopewell Rocks or higher up at the Walton Glen Gorge. “The Picture Province” boasts exceptional biodiversity and plenty of hidden gems waiting to be discovered.
