While traveling along the Fundy coasts of Maine, New Brunswick and Nova Scotia, discover many diverse parks of international, national, provincial or state significance. Explore untamed, natural beauty, observe rich eco-systems or watch the sunrise from the highest point along the Eastern seaboard north of Brazil.
Hikers will enjoy miles of rugged trails through extensive forests to rocky headlands and along bold coastlines.
Naturalists will discover a rich variety of plant life growing in the forests and meadows as well as an abundance of wildlife. Over 260 species of birds, 40 different mammals and various amphibians and reptiles call Fundy’s parks home.
