New Brunswick - Unique Experiences and Wildlife

New Brunswick’s three unique coastlines, miles of untouched nature and panoramic views will capture hearts and camera lenses, alike. The bustling cities and charming villages each adorn unique culture and authentic cuisine. The infectious Acadian “joie de vivre” gets toes tapping. The Bay of Fundy is home to multiple UNESCO biosphere reserves and the highest tides in the world. These are best experienced at the famous Hopewell Rocks; where you can walk the ocean floor and 6 hours later, kayak the tides that have risen over four stories high.

At Little Big Bear Safari, you will experience a unique way of viewing the black bear of America in its natural habitat in the deep forest of New Brunswick. You will learn from Richard, ‘the Bear Man’, about the life of this magnificent creature, the way they communicate, what they eat, and more. Birds, squirrels and sometimes ducks will be entertaining you as well. The scenery and the sound of water on rapids are breathtaking! Little Big Bear Safari is not a zoo. The bears are free to come and go as they please. You will be transported with a mini bus to the foot of a secure and comfortable viewing tower, always accompanied by certified guides. Once in the tower, you will be asked to be very quiet (whisper instead of talking). For the next two hours, you are in the bear's world. Enjoy the interaction between these magnificent creatures while they play, chase one another, and fight. The little ones often climb trees while Mama Bear ferociously chases away a big male intruder. On occasion, you will see Mama Bear nurse her cubs; something you will never see elsewhere. So be sure to bring your camera/videocamera to capture this rare opportunity. Note: Due to the nature of this activity, the minimum age is five years old. If you have questions about the bears, Richard will do his best to answer you, all while whispering. This is an adventure you will never forget! The bears are waiting for you!

Where the world’s highest tides are experienced twice daily; where the Acadian “joie de vivre” is infectious; where Canada’s warmest salt water beaches are found; where the abundance of nature causes relaxation; and where dinner is caught the same day it’s eaten. New Brunswick: simple pleasures and majestic natural wonders.
