The tranquil bi-lingual Maritime province


The heavily forested maritime province of New Brunswick lies between Nova Scotia and Quebec.

The St John River valley runs south along the west of the province through the industrial city of Saint John into the Bay of Fundy. Here the world’s highest tides are very apparent, especially at the Reversing Falls where the tide change is so dramatic it causes rapids in the river mouth which change direction with the tide.

The province’s capital, Fredericton, is a small city of just over 50,000 residents and lies in the heart of the province on the St John River.

Moncton is the gateway to both Prince Edward Island and Nova Scotia making it a popular transport stop over.

Most of the north of the province is mountainous while the south and along the St John River, farming and pastoral lands occupy much of the dramatic views.
