BIKING

Discover the Acadian Peninsula on your bike! La Véloroute is a series of 14 bike trails covering over 540 km, connecting the towns and villages of  the Acadian Peninsula. Many of the trails are newly paved disused railway tracks. You can’t get views like this in your car.

TUBING

Miramichi is well known for its excellent fishing which attracts celebrities from all over the world. But there is another way to get on the river and that’s in a tube!  Tubing the Miramichi river has become increasingly popular over the years and is a great way to spend a day with the kids.
