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.

- Natural Wonders of New Brunswick
The season to be outdoors is upon us and New Brunswick is an excellent province to explore the marvels of nature. It is a land of natural enigmas, and the Bay of Fundy, located in the southern part of the province, sets the stage and the tone, with its ability to boast the highest tides in the world. Twice a day, over ten billion tonnes of water swirl and churn into the bay, eroding away the land and creating a vibrant home for thousands of marine plants and animals. With tides rising as high as forty-five feet, and falling as low as two feet, all in the span of twenty-four hours, it is no wonder that thousands of people visit the Bay of Fundy each year.
