Miramichi River Route

Famous for its world-class salmon fishing and local friendliness, the Miramichi region lets you experience the best of what the great outdoors has to offer. A trip to the Miramichi region is about nature and a total sense of renewal.

Settle in for some genuinely welcoming hospitality at a pub, eatery, brewery, or distillery; spend an afternoon on the river with the Miramichi River Boat Tour; or take time to check out some unique shops like Crackle and Teal, or Urban Nest.

History is alive in the Miramichi—and is best experienced through its rich storytelling tradition. The ghost stories, lumberjack legends, and other local folklore are ingrained in the roots of Miramichi. Learn about Miramichi’s old shipbuilding industry and Acadian history at Beaubears Island; experience the ways of the Mi’gmaq people at Metepenagiag Heritage Park, and get a taste for lumberjack life at the Central New Brunswick Woodmen’s Museum in Boiestown.

This route travels from the city of Miramichi (also on the Acadian Coastal Drive); to the city of Fredericton; joining the River Valley Scenic Drive.
