    We absolutely adored Fundy National Park. We didn’t have as much time as I now wish we would have made though. It would have been great to spend a overnight camping. The park covers a diverse landscape and other than not having enough time, it was perfect!

    This is a fairly rugged hike as the trail winds it was for 2.5 km among rocks and tree roots. The return trip is hard as it is all uphill. The hike was worth it though as the falls were very nice complete with a swimming hole underneath them.

    We absolutely loved walking this trail. It was short (the slightly longer version of it was closed) and very well maintained. I love that it is so well cared for and other than people carving their names into the boardwalk it was so prestige. It’s sad that the drought has caused the water level to be so low but that is simply nature. It’s well worth the short walk.

    The best thing about this campground is its location. It’s within walking distance of Alma and the Bay of Fundy. It’s been around awhile and shows it’s age but when our sewer hookup didn’t work, they refunded that night’s stay and fixed it the next day (we arrived late on Sunday afternoon). The staff were very friendly and helpful. We wouldn’t hesitate to stay there again.

    This community opens its arms and makes you feel welcome. Wonderful and reasonable restaurants. The place to buy seafood.

    Is it because we've seen other covered bridges in Vermont, or is it because the day was cloudy, or because it was high tide? I don't know but I was a bit underwhelmed by the scenery. We walked around the Point Wolf area and thought it was nice but not exceptional. If I had to go to that area again, I would focus on the Hopewell Rocks

    The trail to this beach is closed but if you can find a way to get to the beach at low tide, it is a great beach to visit. A combination of sand and rock with views of cliffs, a covered bridge and the ocean.

    Just over 100 stairs take you to this beach which is a must see on every trip to Fundy. Lots of beach to walk at low tide.Rocky but fairly smooth.

    What a wonderful way to experience the Bay of Fundy! I went with my brother and his wife who had never before been in a kayak. From the moment we arrived we were buoyed by both the beauty of the site and how well the outfitter was set-up and organized. The expertise and attentiveness of our guide Gena, also owner/operator of Kayak Fundy, made everyone feel safe and confident in venturing out to Matthew's Head. Sharing her passion, knowledge and stories of this unique coastal treasure made it a truly an immersible experience. The coffee and warm cinnamon buns served afterwards on their cafe patio overlooking the wharf and waterfront is worth the visit alone. We will definitely be back. Thank you so much Gena!

    What a wonderful surprise!! 3 amazing escape rooms and a free history lesson to boot. The owner is so interesting the conversation was worth the price of admission all by itself. Top notch rooms!! Totally a hidden gem. It should be way higher on this list and we have been to all the ones on the list that are still open. We do a lot of rooms and all three made it into my top 5 rooms out of the 50 plus we have done so that is saying something!!

    In a previous review on Cape Breton Highlands National Park's Highlands Links course I described how Stanley Thompson, Canada's foremost golf course architect, was commissioned to build a series of golf courses in national parks from 1924 through 1948 resulting in a legacy that is now recognized as a national treasure. Three of these courses, Jasper Park, Banff Springs and Highlands Links are in the top ten in Canada and people come from around the world to play them. Often overlooked is the nine hole course Stanley designed in Fundy National Park, which is a shame because among nine hole courses it is rated by many as the best in Canada.

    Unlike its big brothers in Jasper, Banff and Cape Breton, modesty is the watchword at Fundy Golf Course, starting with this minuscule pro shop. There is a dichotomy between the big three and Parks Canada's other golf courses which translates directly into course conditioning. Jasper Park and Banff Springs are part of the Fairmont resort system while Highlands Links is affiliated with Keltic Lodge, owned by multimillionaire Jim Balsillie. These courses are administered and maintained by those organizations, while the other Parks Canada courses have to compete for budget dollars with all the other amenities that the populace expects from our national park system. Ok, I'll stop beating around the bush - Fundy Golf Course is starved for money to keep it in the condition that Stanley Thompson would have expected when he designed the course.

    The first is as dramatic a starting hole as you are going to find anywhere. You can from the photo included that the fairway is very burned with few green pathes . But you know what, poor conditioning is not going to overly detract from a great design, just as great conditioning won't gloss over a poor design. Now to be fair, in reading reviews of Fundy Golf Course on Trip Advisor from 2016 through 2018, nobody commented adversely on the state of the fairways and most said the course was well maintained so I am going to assume that the super dry summer of 2020 was largely responsible for the shape of the fairways.

    The greens were in much better shape than the fairways and are notable for their minuscule size. Thompson has made full use of the natural rolling terrain and there are a number of elevated tees and elevated greens. The 240 yard par three has to be the longest from the whites in the country.

    All round this is a great course that is having difficulty living up to its reputation due to conditioning issues. Still I would highly recommend it.

    We walked by the studio on our way to our anniversary dinner. We decided to stop in and had so much fun getting dressed up as a lobster fisherwoman catching a merman. 😂 Funny and silly keepsake to show our kids!

    This 5.2 k trail winds its way through dense woods and crosses several creeks. An old copper mine is at the mid point. It is a very rugged climb to see the old mine but if necessary, there is by pass that can be taken. The second part of the trail follows the cliff edge with fantastic views of the bay of Fundy and the water below. It took us 2.5 hrs to complete this trail.

    This saddens me as it was the only thing we didn't get to do on our trip. We showed up on a Monday to ask about times and rates etc. We were told first come first serve so you do not need to book them and that last boat goes out at 7. Wednesday we showed up at 645 and no one was to be seen. The sign said back at 8:30am. The canoes were still in the water, condiments and hot dog buns were all still out some opened. It looked as if someone may have still been there. We waited 10 minutes, walked around the outside, knocked on doors, but nothing. We were so disappointed as we planned our whole day around this, and were hoping maybe to see a moose this way. We ended up going to Tracey lake instead to spend dusk. On our way back to our campsite we noticed the canoes had all been brought in!!!! Which meant someone was there! This really irked us. I don't usually give bad reviews but this was not a nice move. Sorry to say.
