Our handwritten guide on Backpacking New Brunswick

New Brunswick is the western most province in Canada that makes up the group of provinces known as the Maritimes. There are very few hostels in New Brunswick and most of them are in the major cities and towns so if you are planning to stay in hostels through New Brunswick, do your research and plan your trip around these major centres to save on cash. Public transport is not very good in New Brunswick so to get around to the awesome sights it is recommended that you hire a car to get around.

The major towns where you will find the hostels include Miramichi and Saint John. The hostels have quite a homely and quiet feel to them as this area does not attract many backpackers. However if you manage to venture out this way, you should definitely go and visit the Joggins Fossil Cliffs UNESCO World Heritage Site and try your hand at finding a fossil among the thousands here that lie among the rocks on the beach. The Bay of Fundy is also stunning and has the largest change in tides of any region of the world. They have here an interesting centre giving information about using these tidal changes to create hydroelectricity. While you are down this way, the Hopewell Rocks are also a very popular and well known attraction for New Brunswick.

In the northern part of the province you will find a lot of Arcadian history relating to the first European settlers to this area, who were French. The cities are very uninteresting. While there are a few nice looking colonial buildings in them, you will not need more than a day to explore each place you stop in. The nature of New Brunswick is by far the most impressive and interesting thing to see and do here.
