Famous for its world-class salmon fishing and local friendliness, this is one city that lets you experience the best of what the great outdoors has to offer. A trip to the City of Miramichi and its valley is about authentic spirit, nature, and a total sense of renewal. French Fort Cove is a stunning historic area, formally known as Mill Cove, and is perfect for those who love birding, hiking, biking, paddling, zip-lining, or maybe just picnicking while taking in the scenic views. Make sure to visit Boishébert and Beaubears Island Shipbuilding National Historic Site of Canada, which offers costumed guides to learn about the Acadians who took refuge there, and the shipbuilding of centuries past. Take a walk through 30 centuries of Mi'kmaq culture. For over 3,000 years, our ancestors have stood above the ancestral grounds of the Mi'kmaq, overlooking the Oxbow National Historic Sites. Metepenagiag Heritage Park allows you the chance to experience a connection to one of New Brunswick's oldest continuously inhabited communities. Enjoy a guided tour of the Metepenagiag Interpretative Centre, where you can learn about the cultural significance of the community and the two national historic sites, experiencing storytelling handed down through generations. Then walk in the footsteps of our ancestors through our beautiful groomed walking trails as you gather some of the ingredients for your Indigenous meal of wild game or fish; traditional bannock, and traditional tea.

Day 6 - Miramichi to Shediac

Known as The Lobster Capital of the World for lobster fishing, processing plants, live-lobster tanks, and the famous Lobster Festival, this is where you'll find The World’s Largest Lobster Stop and have your picture taken with it! Take a dip in the finest saltwater beaches in Eastern Canada! With waters peaking at 24 degrees Celsius (75 degrees Fahrenheit), it’s some of the warmest water north of Virginia. Boating, windsurfing, golf, and hiking are just a few of the attractions on or near its pristine, sprawling beaches. Enjoy a 2.5-hour cruise on a covered boat and learn all you need to know about the Atlantic Lobster. Cruising on beautiful Shediac Bay, listen to a knowledgeable guide who also will guide you carefully through the proper process of cracking and eating a cooked lobster.

The park is a haven for bird watchers, golfers, cyclists, canoeists, and naturalists. Be sure to visit Hopewell Rocks Provincial Park, home of Hopewell Rocks. Visit the excellent interpretive center on site before exploring this natural phenomenon. Twice each day the highest tides in the world, up to 46ft/14m, flood the beach, and twice each day you can explore the floor of the Bay of Fundy at low tide!

There are options for single travelers to join most tours. Solo Travelers can choose to pay the single supplement and have their own room throughout the tour. For those willing to share, we also have a Twin Share option that is offered for the majority of our tours. This means you will be sharing the hotel rooms with another single, same gender traveller who also books the Twin Share option. If this is the case, there will be no single supplement charged to either of you. If we are unable to match you with another Twin Share traveler, there may be a single surcharge applied to cover the full cost of the rooms on some of our longer tours. Please enquire before finalizing your booking for full details.
