Out There New Brunswick  
New Brunswick is a beautiful oceanside province, nestled between the Gulf of St. Lawrence and Northumberland Strait in the east, and the Bay of Fundy and Chignecto Bay in the south. The province's neighbors are Quebec in the north and Nova Scotia in the south
but most of it is bounded by the ocean. Miles of sandy beaches at Kouchibouguac National Park, the Bay of Fundy's world famous tides and the beautifully sculpted rocks and cliffs of The Rocks Provincial Park are a few of the spectacular coastal sights in New Brunswick. In the Fundy Isles there are a number of great places to sea kayak. One of the best is off

  Grand Manan Island. There is a regular ferry service from Blacks Harbour to the Island every day. You'll find a beautiful combination of cliffs falling off into the sea, small offshore islands and pebble beaches sloping gently up to beautiful landscapes, typical of the maritime provinces. If you want to kayak with ocean wildlife, try Deer and Campobello Islands.
These areas are teeming with marine life like the finback and minke whales, porpoises, seals and eagles. These two islands are located in the proposed West Isles National Marine Park.

For the canoeist, the Kouchibouguac and the Madawaska rivers are perfect for easy tripping.

If white water is what you're after you can try the Miramichi or the famous St. Croix rivers. You'll want to run these rivers in the spring when the water level is high enough.

Point your compass towards Mount Carleton Provincial Park if you want to do some hiking or backpacking.Wtth the highest peak in the Maritimes at 820 metres the park has some 62 kilometers of trails to choose from. Grand Manan Island is another wonderful place for hikers who like to explore rugged coastline and watch sea and bird life at its best.

New Brunswick has some of the best mountain biking in the east. With an abundance of narrow, rarely-traveled back roads, long stretches of abandoned rail line and miles of great single track twisting through the forests, what more could you ask for. Follow the Miramichi River Route for beautiful river scenery or for beach biking go to the Acadian Peninsula, which includes the islands of Lameque and Miscou. Carleton County has great trails for the vertically inclined and don't forget Kouchibouguac National Park with its large network of gravel paths and some good twisting single track.
