Legendary fishing lives here.
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.
Settle in for some genuinely welcoming hospitality at a pub or eatery; spend a restorative day fly-fishing on the river; dive deep into the region’s history; spend family time at Ritchie Wharf Park kids’ adventure playground, shops and galleries.
History is alive in the Miramichi—and is best experienced through its rich storytelling tradition. The ghost stories, lumberjack legends and other local folklore are ingrained in the roots of Miramichi. Learn about Miramichi’s old shipbuilding industry and Acadian history at Beaubears Island; experience the ways of the Mi’gmaq people at Metepenagiag Heritage Park; and get a taste for lumberjack life at the Central New Brunswick Woodmen’s Museum in Boiestown.
All the way from the northwest of this region (including Metepenagiag, Red Bank, Sunny Corner, South Esk & Eel Ground) and along the Miramichi River Route (Boiestown, Doaktown, Blackville, Miramichi Bay) you’ll be treated to the classic Miramichi river experience. With bountiful salmon pools, and knowledgeable guides to lead the way, you’ll have a salmon fishing experience like you’ve never imagined possible. But fishing is just the start. You’ll also find hiking routes, paddling, tubing, camping and ATVing all along the valley.
