New Brunswick makes the most of winter.
We’re a truly “Canadian” province in that winter here is…really winter. Which means, our winter isn’t a meek, slushy chilly spell. It’s for real. Our winter is lots of snow that sticks around for months. It’s what our people know—and we’re known to make the most of it. No wonder snowmobiling is so much a part of our culture.
In New Brunswick, 8,000 km (5,000 mi.) of groomed trails maintained by volunteers with the New Brunswick Federation of Snowmobile Clubs are primed and waiting for you. You’ll feel the wind race over your face as you travel through snow-dusted forests, along wind-swept coastlines, and following winding rivers. There are restaurants, gas stations, snowmobile-friendly accommodations and other amenities located all along the trails. The Northern Odyssey network is a favourite ride you’ll want to check out – taking you through Edmundston, Campbellton, Bathurst and the Acadian Peninsula. You can also snowmobile your way south on trails that hug the Miramichi and the Saint John rivers, all the way to the Fundy Highlands with incredible coastal views.
