The Miramichi River is well-known among anglers and conservationists as a world treasure for Atlantic salmon fishing. For the outdoors enthusiast we offer customized packages (golfing, fishing, hiking, and boating).
Not an outdoorsman? Then the Acadian Shore is a day tripper’s delight . . . full of antiques, shopping in the village boutiques, dropping in for a tour of The Olivier Soapery, the local lighthouses and cafes might be enough to tempt you. The beaches of the Bouctouche Dunes and the eco-museum will make you marvel at the collection of shells and warm temperature of the seawater.
For those individuals interested in local history or researching their personal family tree. There is the Miramichi Open River Museum sites along the river which offer numerous activities for visitors to experience first hand what life was like on this majestic watercourse. With its history in shipbuilding, forestry, and even pirates, the river continues to leave an indelible mark on your heart.
And if you would like to pay your respects to your Irish roots, a stop at Middle Island is a definite must. Now linked to the mainland by a causeway, it is easily accessible by car and is staffed during the summer months by guides who are well versed in the history of this moving and sacred place. This small island in the mouth of the Miramichi River became the final resting place for many who contracted ‘ship’s fever’ or typhus during the crossing. Miramichi is also known as ‘the festival city’ due to the number of popular events throughout the year like ‘Canada’s Irish Festival’ and the ‘Rock n Roll Festival’. Our hospitality is legendary.
