Home to some of the world’s highest tides, Fundy National Park lies on the Bay of Fundy.
At its eastern border lies the picturesque town of Alma, a small fishing village where seafood chowder is the basis for an annual festival, the local restaurants competing for the title of “Best Tasting Chowder”. Locals here rely on tourism, lobster and scallop fishing as an integral part of their survival.
Venture into the Park itself and you’ll find sandy beaches, miles of hiking and mountain biking trails, and more than 25 waterfalls. Its rugged coastline rises up to the Canadian Highlands, its world-famous giant tides providing a source of wonder for those who observe this amazing phenomenon.
A drive 45km north of Alma will take you to Hopewell Rocks. Here you can stroll the ocean floor amongst impressive flowerpot rocks at low tide and canoe or kayak as the water returns.
The Fundy Region is a place where covered bridges, biking and hiking trails, museums, quiet beaches, waterfalls and lighthouses are all at your fingertips – just reach out and discover it for yourself!
Some of the world's highest tides can be experienced at Hopefull Rocks on New Brunswick's Fundy Coast. Feel dwarfed by magnificent rock formations as you walk the ocean floor.
