Outdoor Activities and Tours


Outdoor Activities and Tours

Whale-watching, sea kayaking, bird-watching, scuba diving, garden touring, river cruising, golfing, and fishing are just a few of New Brunswick's alluring experiences. Tourism New Brunswick, as well as several other provincial and commercial companies, has details and can provide information on day adventures, scenic driving routes, and accommodations.

Bicycling, in particular is a favorite way to tour New Brunswick. Two favorite biking areas in the province are the 33 km (20 mi) of country roads on Grand Manan Island (you can rent bikes from Adventure High; see the Grand Manan listings) and the Quoddy Loop, which goes around Passamaquoddy Bay and the western mouth of the Bay of Fundy.

Baymount Outdoor Adventures operates bicycle tours for large groups along the Fundy shore near Hopewell Cape. B&Bs frequently have bicycles for rent, and Tourism New Brunswick has listings and free cycling maps.
