Wuxly Wanderer - The Bay of Fundy Edition
BAY OF FUNDY EDITION
Is visiting New Brunswick on your travel bucket list? If not, it should be! The Bay of Fundy, just an hour outside of Moncton, NB, it is one of the world’s most spectacular natural wonders.
The Bay of Fundy has the world’s highest tides, with a landscape that transforms as the water rises and falls. You can walk the ocean floor and explore the magnificent rock formations that are scattered along the coastline at low tide, then experience the same coast by kayak from a whole new perspective at high tide. An impressive 16 metres of water rise and fall twice throughout the day.
Here’s a few must see stops on your Bay of Fundy adventure:
Fuel up before you hit the road
The Moncton International Airport has daily flights from Toronto, Ottawa and Montreal. If you are flying in early, head to Calactus (125 Church Street) for an early lunch. Their delicious vegetarian and vegan menu will fill you up and keep you feeling light for the big day ahead.
The Fundy National Park is filled with hiking and biking trails, accessible camping sites and golden sand beaches. The many short hikes in the park make it especially attractive to casual hikers and young families.
The 1.5 km loop to Dixon Falls is not to be missed. The calming sounds of rushing water, lush moss-covered rocks and fresh forest air will send you into immediate relaxation mode.
Point Wolfe Beach
Make your way to Point Wolfe Beach which starts at the picturesque Point Wolf covered bridge. An easy-to-follow trail takes you out towards the bay. At low tide you can hike down to the beach and walk along the rock and sand bottom.
Alma, New Brunswick
After some hiking and exploring in Fundy National Park, drive next door to the quaint town of Alma. Here you’ll find lots of seaside shacks and restaurant patios to choose from if you need a bite to eat. If you’re short on time, grab a famous sticky bun and a coffee at Kelly’s Bakeshop and continue on towards Hopewell Rocks.
Fundy Coast Farm
This Artisan Sea Salt and Hand-crafted Soap Shop along Highway 114 is worth a stop along the way. Here you’ll meet Lorena, the owner and soap maker who creates beautiful and imaginative scent combinations with her cold pressed soaps, hand-crafted with locally sourced sea water.
Your insta-perfect moment awaits at the Hopewell Rocks Provincial Park. The naturally sculpted landscape is iconic of the Atlantic coastline and spectacular to witness. Experiencing it at low tide is an unforgettable experience. When the tide rises, you can paddle around the rock formations by kayak.
