Thirteen feet of snow in a typical winter means you’re going to have some fun! New Brunswick offers over 7,000 kilometres of groomed trails in a province that embraces winter in a big way. You can stick to the trails for some excellent riding, or perhaps mix in a stop at one of the province’s winter festivals (like Snow-Fest in Cambelton; Winterfesthiver in Fredricton or the Miramichi White Gold Festival). New Brunswick is another jurisdiction that allows snowmobiling in provincial parks on designated trails.
One route highly recommended by Tourism New Brunswick is the Great Northern Odyssey, a 1,000 kilometre loop that touches on four cities (see map on left /right/above). Be sure to see Craig Nicholson’s tour of the Fundy Highlands region of New Brunswick elsewhere in this issue.
