New Brunswick: Bay of Fundy & Campobello Island

Easy to Moderate Terrain: 3-7 Miles Daily

Map of New Bruswick Walking Tour

Sculpted over millennia by the largest tidal surge in the world, the Bay of Fundy presents remarkable seascapes of gouged caves, soaring cliffs, sea stacks, and expansive tidal flats. Here, walking along trails through spruce-fir forest, vast marshes, and quaint seaside villages, you’ll discover the essence of New Brunswick’s unique charm: a delightful mix of Acadian roots, maritime culture, natural beauty, and vibrant Scottish traditions. On Campobello Island—the summer home of Franklin Delano Roosevelt—encounter a secret chapter of world history as you stay in 19th-century cottages within the Roosevelt Campobello International Park, enjoying a private talk with a local expert. Search for minke or finback whales breaching the cold Atlantic waters during a private whale watch. Of course, a visit to this magnificent corner of Canada wouldn’t be complete without farm-fresh cuisine, just-caught Atlantic lobster, and traditional maritime music.


Tour Highlights:
  • Beside the village of St. Martins, enjoy a walking route determined by the tides: either ascending to a lookout point above the crashing waves or strolling along broad flats to sea caves carved by the surf.
  • Enjoy an exclusive stay in turn-of-the-century cottages on Campobello Island, complete with a traditional lobster dinner overlooking the ocean.
  • Stroll through the town of Saint Andrews, learning about everything from the town’s 200-year-old homes to the beautiful Kingsbrae Garden, recognized as one of Canada’s best.
