2-Day Itinerary for Nature Lovers

2-Day Itinerary for Nature Lovers

Experience the great outdoors and amazing nature that surrounds Moncton.

Day 1

Morning

Experience our magnificent Tidal Bore. Watch the Tidal Bore along the waterfront as the Bay of Fundy tides cause the Petitcodiac River to empty and fill twice a day. Then go for a hike or bike ride along the Riverfront trail that overlooks the Petitcodiac River.

Refresh and refuel your body at one of the many downtown restaurants and cafes nearby.
