Description

This tour begins by following the St. John River north through New Brunswick, then crosses into Quebec where it follows the St. Lawrence River around the Gaspe Peninsula, and then turns south along New Brunswick's Acadian Coast toward the island of Fredericton. Begin with a drive north to Perth-Andover to visit Grand Falls, where the St. John River creates a waterfall and then squeezes through a mile-long gorge that partially encircles the town. Continue your route along the peninsula to the Gaspesie Provincial Park located in the Chic-Choc Mountains. Catch herds of deer, moose, and caribou in their natural habitat, and spend some time on the fishing lakes (boat rental available). Finish your tour by driving southwest to Fredericton. Stop at the Beaverbrook Art Gallery, York-Sunbury Historical Society Museum, and the Christ Church Cathedral.
