Overview

Discover the many natural wonders in and around Moncton, New Brunswick. Start by visiting Fundy National Park – a 206-kilometre expanse of parkland full of rare birds and marine life. Next, experience the highest tides in the world at Hopewell Rocks or relax on the beaches of Kouchibouguac National Park.

Then there is Magnetic Hill – one of the most fascinating natural attractions in Canada. Drive along a mountainous road where you can put your car in neutral and watch as it seemingly climbs uphill on its own! How is this possible? Just ask a local to explain.

New Brunswick is also home to the Le Pays de la Sagouine village, a wildly popular cultural attraction celebrating Acadian culture, largely based on the writings of author Antonine Maillet. Located on its very own island, the village offers live theatre, music, comedy and dance, all in an enchanting natural setting. Visitors here will discover the unique Acadian way of life, where evenings come alive with dinner theatre and musical shows. The whole cast of characters, accompanied by two house bands, will keep your fingers snapping and your feet tapping throughout your visit.
