New Brunswick, a province 80% covered by forest and best known for the Bay of Fundy, home to the world’s highest tides. It is also the only one in Canada that is officially bilingual. Its capital is none other than Fredericton, which has only 50,000 inhabitants.
Take a tour to Hartland, famous for its longest covered bridge in the world (391 m) that spans the Saint John River.
If there is one place not to be missed, it is the historic Acadian village. It is above all a very lively and colorful reconstitution of the Acadia of yesteryear. The village is made up of sixty houses and buildings dating from 1773 to 1949. Farms, workshops, school, bistro, shops and church , nothing is missing !
The Bay of Fundy stretches for 290 km. Visit the Fundy National Park along the 20 km bay. There are lakes in shambles, many streams, covered bridges, hiking trails and bike paths. Enough to occupy a whole day.
