Well known for its network of cycling trails, you’ll surely want to bring your bike with you for some easy coastal riding.
To dive further into indigenous cultures, go to the Elsipogtog Mi'kmaq Cultural Centre where you will be taken on the popular Mi’kmaq Heritage Path Tour experience. Leave enriched by a deeper understanding and connection to the cultural teachings and ways of the Mi’gmaq.
Immerse yourself in traditional Mi’kmaq culture as you learn the fine art of basket making in Elsipogtog First Nation, New Brunswick. After a traditional smudging ceremony in the community teepee, guests will head into the woods for a walk along the Heritage Path where they will learn about the plants and trees used for basket making and other time-honoured purposes. #IndigenousCanada #indigenoustourism #exploreCanada #ExploreNB #basketweaving #mikmaq #indigenousculture
As visitors continue their travels south, they will find Irving Eco-Centre: La dune de Bouctouche, a preserve developed to restore and protect one of the last large dunes on the northeastern North American coastline (12 kms, to be exact!). It offers a unique set of vistas for anyone inspired by the wonder of an ocean landscape. Stroll the 1-km boardwalk for expansive views of the protected shoreline and access to the beach.
If you’re on the lookout for sandy beaches, stop in at Parlee Beach or Aboiteau Beach to sink your feet in the sand and splash around in the Canada’s warmest saltwater.
Finding a place to stay could not be easier – there’s camping, cottages, inns, motels, and even glamping throughout the area. A few stars to check out include Jardine’s Inn, Dune View Inn, L’Ancrage Bed & Breakfast and Cottages, Séjour Kouchibouguac Resort, Motel Chez Freda, The Liberty Village, and Creekside RnR.
