The Bay of Fundy is a bucket list destination for thousands of avid vacationers, but there’s so much more to the experience than just the awe-inspiring bay itself. There are memories to be made around every turn, which is what calls everyone back for more.
Happy International Trails Day! 🌿How are you spending this day in the Fundy region?! | 📷: Nigel Fearon/Parks Canada • • For a chance to be featured, use the hashtag #FundyTourism on all your Albert County Explorations • • #fundytourism #discovernb #tourismnb #albertcounty #explorenb #discovernewbrunswick #newbrunswick #maritimesbest #imagesofcanada #exploremore #bayoffundy #tourism #explore #alma #riversidealbert #hillsborough #hopewell #riverview #travelinspiration #letsgoeverywhere #biking #trailsday #internationaltrailsday #fundy
The first thing to design is your driving, walking, hiking, and biking plan because there are no bad choices in this beautiful area - you’ll find trails aplenty! The region exists in the boundaries of the Fundy Biosphere Reserve, which UNESCO designated as one of the world’s Amazing Places. It needs to be experienced to be believed and brings many people to a moment of both meaning and magic.
As you create your plan, prepare to be enchanted by the coastal views, the waterfalls hidden in the spectacular Acadian forest, and the unique costal formations rising from the ocean floor under the powerful Bay of Fundy tides. Some of the most visited choices along this discovery route are Fundy National Park, Hopewell Rocks, Mary’s Point Bird Sanctuary, Crooked Creek Lookout and Trail Riverside Albert, Waterside Beach, and White Rock Recreation Area in Hillsborough.
You can also experience some of the local ‘flavour’ by sampling world class seafood and local produce, and taking in the ‘Fundy Fresh – Taste of Place’ tour connecting eclectic villages by trails that bring you to local wineries and craft breweries like Riverview’s Craft Brewery Beer Garden Patio. You can also find out more on the history of this magnificent area by stopping by the Albert County Museum in Hopewell Cape where they are celebrating a 175th birthday this year.

We are so excited to see small businesses reopening over the next few weeks.

Schuller: “Tough times never last, but tough people do.” Nous sommes heureux de voir la réouverture des petites entreprises au cours des prochaines semaines.
