The locals like to call it “running the Restigouche” and for good reason. The Restigouche River, a Canadian Heritage River, is a canoeist’s and salmon angler’s paradise.

Some of the best ways to experience the Restigouche include planning a river run (canoe rentals available from GP Canoe Adventure), or booking a classic salmon fly-fishing stay at historic Larry's Gulch lodge, a rare opportunity to fish in 8 km (5 mi.) of reserved water.

Running through the heart of the Appalachian Range, the Restigouche, Kedgwick, and Upsalquitch rivers are your best chance to connect with nature, stop for a refreshing swim, and take in miles of evergreen trees.

If you’re looking to explore more in the area, hike to the highest peak in the Maritimes at Mount Carleton Provincial Park, or go mountain biking at Sugarloaf Provincial Park
