Description

Day 1: Fredericton
The start of your fishing and outdoor adventure is in Fredericton for your first night stay. New Brunswick’s capital city is noted for its heritage and culture. Spend the afternoon exploring such places as the Historic Garrison District, Beaverbrook Art Gallery, City Hall, Christchurch Cathedral and the Old Government House. For the more energetic, perhaps rent a bicycle and ride the magnificent 85kms trails network that follow the St John River.
Fredericton 1 night

Day 2: Miramichi
Pick up vehicle and drive to one of the world’s best fly fishing rivers – the Miramichi. An angler’s paradise. Fly-fishers from around the world come here to challenge the legendary waters of the Miramichi River for the king of the game fish, the Atlantic salmon. Three night stay here giving you plenty of opportunity to learn or improve your fly fishing skills in this area, famed for having half of all line caught salmon coming from these rivers. An experience of a lifetime.
Miramichi 3 nights

Day 5: Bay of Fundy
Head due south to the Bay of Fundy (Hopewell Rocks) area for a two night stay and time to relax after your exertions with the rod. Hopewell Cape is home to Hopewell Rocks; the giant rock formations carved over thousands of years by the Bay of Fundy’s awesome tidal forces. Visit the excellent Interpretive Centre on site before exploring these natural phenomena either at low tide by walking on the ocean floor in and among the rock formations along the coast or 6 hours later kayak the very same spot at high tide. Twice each day the highest tides in the world – up to 46 feet – flood the beach, a natural wonder not to be missed! Visit Fundy National Park which has 206 square kms of steep coastal cliffs, forested hills, deep rich valleys, rugged shoreline and rolling meadows. The park is renowned for its hiking trails, with over 104 kms of trails to choose from, ranging from easy ½ km loops to a demanding 50 km circuit around the Park. The Park is a haven for bird watchers, golfers, cyclists, canoeists and naturalists.
Bay of Fundy 2 nights

Day 7: St Andrews-By-The-Sea
Drive the Bay of Fundy coastal drive, with plenty of opportunity to observe whales, birds and a variety of other marine life – this is one of the greatest and most accessible concentrations of whales and seabirds in the North Atlantic. Consider taking the ferry from Blacks Harbour across to Grand Manan Island for walking trails and iconic lighthouses. Grand Manan is the largest Island in the Bay of Fundy and is a haven for whale watchers, bird watchers and nature lovers alike. There are many hiking trails on the island – a marvellous network of narrow rustic footpaths that allow for further exploration to areas not accessible by most vehicles. Enjoy an unforgettable fully narrated sailing adventure to view several whale species, including the endangered North Atlantic Right Whale, as well as seals and sea birds. Or, why not join one of the fishing boats and try your hand at sea fishing in this beautiful Bay?
Alternatively spend the day in St. Andrews by-the-Sea, one of Canada’s most beautiful seaside resorts. Consider playing a round of golf, visiting Kingsbrae Gardens or strolling along Water Street viewing the local wares of artisans and potters. A whale watching excursion can also be embarked upon from the St. Andrews wharf. Don’t miss an exquisite dining experience at Rossmount Inn; very affordable fresh, local cuisine
St Andrews By the Sea 2 nights

Day 9: Halifax
Start your journey home or continue your adventure with a spectacular drive back to Halifax
