Sit back, relax, and go with the flow.

You don’t need a plan. Just take your cue from the river, and meander your way from memory to memory. This historic 512 km (318 mi.) drive is a romantic combination of inspiring landscapes and rich culture. Discovering Canada’s 38th Heritage River will have you eating, exploring, and celebrating from end to end. The Saint John River route twists and turns from the city of Edmundston to the city of Saint John as re-creations, re-enactments, and pastoral charm line the banks no matter where you travel. Follow it from the one-of-a-kind Madawaska region, to the gorge adventures of Grand Falls/Grand-Sault, to the arts of Florenceville-Bristol and Woodstock, to the dining of the city of Fredericton and to the ferries of the Lower Saint John River Valley.
