This area of Canada was one of the first areas in North America to be settled and further explored by the French in the 1600s. At that time, New Brunswick was known as the Colony of Acadia.
Saint John, New Brunswick was also the first city to be incorporated in Canada, back in 1785. As well, in that same year, The University of New Brunswick was one of the first universities established in all of North America.
Bordered by Quebec to the north, the State of Maine to the west, and Nova Scotia to the southeast, New Brunswick is still a heavily forested province. As you tour New Brunswick you’ll notice spruce and fir, as well as beech, sugar maple, yellow birch, conifers, and red spruce trees.
Perched geographically above the Bay of Fundy, and to the west of the Gulf of St. Lawrence, New Brunswick is also a rich, environmental treasure and home to moose, black bear, lynx, and white-tailed deer.
Bay of Fundy New Brunswick
There are plenty of sandy beaches, awe-inspiring vistas, and unique cultural diversity at every turn in New Brunswick. The Bay of Fundy is the body of water between New Brunswick and Nova Scotia. It is a world-renowned whale-watchers paradise and world famous for its Fundy Tides.
The tides in the Bay of Fundy can reach a record-setting height of 55 feet or more in just a six-hour period. As much as one hundred and fifteen billion tonnes of water flows back into the Bay of Fundy at high tide. With this amount of water flowing upstream over such a short time, it’s not unusual to witness waves traveling up the river in reverse direction during high tides. The Bay of Fundy is also unique in that it will experience 2 high tides and 2 low tides within a 24-hour period.
As your tour moves from New Brunswick to Prince Edward Island, you will be crossing Confederation Bridge. Opened on May 31, 1997, The Confederation Bridge is considered one of Canada’s top engineering achievements.
Confederation Bridge is 8 miles long (12.9 kilometres) and holds the record as the world’s longest ocean bridge that is built over ice-covered waters. Confederation Bridge spans the Abegweit Passage connecting New Brunswick with Prince Edward Island. The bridge safely carries travellers through the Cape Jourimain National Wildlife Area to the gently rolling farmlands of PEI across the scenic spectrum of Northumberland Strait.
From the raw natural beauty of the Bay of Fundy to the rich forest-covered coastline and the Acadian culture of the people of New Brunswick, this is a paradise on Canada’s east coast that you won’t want to miss.

Why Travel with Caravan?
Why Travel with Caravan?
Excellence Since 1952
You can trust our years of experience with tours of superb quality and excellent value. Caravan has enjoyed the same family management and ownership since 1952.
Caravan's Proud History
In 1965, Roger Mudd hosted a two-hour CBS TV special on Caravan Tours. This TV production took about one month to make and was so successful it inspired the 1968 romantic comedy movie “If it’s Tuesday this must be Belgium.” In the early 50’s the Mayor of Dublin presented Caravan with the Key to Dublin for bringing the first American tour to the city after WWII. Since then, Caravan has been recognized as a pioneer in travel. You can trust in our stability, experience and dedication to quality.
Stay at park lodges, scenic resorts, and excellent hotels in great locations. See hotel descriptions on each tour page.
