Family vacations in the Maritimes begin with a stop in Edmundston, New Brunswick, gateway to the Maritime Provinces. The natural, cultural and friendly charm of this welcoming city bordering Quebec and Maine is unequalled!


Its rolling geography crisscrossing the splendid Appalachians range offers a playground much appreciated by cyclists, both for urban and mountain biking. There are 134 kilometres of trails available to you in the Petit Témis Interprovincial Linear Park, or 50 kilometres of mountain bike trails for the more adventurous.


Edmundston is defined by its particular culinary cultural appeal, typically called “brayon.” Discover its charms with a visit to the downtown market, which will transport you to the uniqueness of the region’s flavours through the products of local artisans and farmers.

For an out-of-the-ordinary family activity, take a leap to the Du Réel au Miniature Railroad Interpretation Center, where the history of the New Brunswick rail network takes the form of an exciting journey into a world that’s as tiny as it is impressive! You could also ride the rails on their new outdoor track.

And finally, did you know that Edmundston is home to one of the best kept secrets in the province? The splendour of the New Brunswick Botanical Garden will take you to a true multi- sensory experience: mesmerizing colours, enchanting aromas and textures, the delicate sounds of this haven of paradise and, of course, the unexpected flavours of Café Flora!
