It all starts with the Bay of Fundy.

Walk on the ocean floor (or paddle on the surface around the flowerpot rocks); cross a covered bridge; crack into a lobster feast. When you’re in Albert County, it’s hard to not focus on the wonders of the Bay of Fundy. But these world-famous tides are just the beginning.

The highest tides on earth. The coastline in Albert County follows the Bay of Fundy, where the tides rise and fall farther than anywhere else on the planet. The low tide reveals towering cliffs, expansive discovery beaches, the ocean floor, and of course, the famous Hopewell Rocks Provincial Park. Kayak or canoe the shoreline of the Bay and get a front row seat to all this wonder.

Coastal rivers and forests, perfect for hiking, kayaking, birdwatching, horseback riding and, of course, camping, also make Albert County a beautiful spot. If you’re a golfer, you’re also in luck -- bring those clubs.

Here, our history is as interesting as our tides are impressive. Museums, old covered bridges, and countless historic sites keep the past in the present. A strong arts and crafts community will tempt the souvenir hunter with pottery, clay, and paintings that reflect the culture of this region. In Alma, lobster is a must, as it’s an active fishing village, where you can watch lobster boats come and go, then order lobster your favourite way at one of the local restaurants or lobster shops. After a busy day exploring at Fundy National Park, relax with craft beers and good food in a local restaurant.
