Over the Columbus Day weekend, we traveled to Saint John, New Brunswick to explore Hopewell Rocks, at the Bay of Fundy, near Moncton.
The Bay of Fundy is reported to have the highest tidal range in the world, rising over 50 feet at high tide.
So lucky to have walked on the Atlantic Ocean floor on two continents...in Europe, in Spain at Cathedrals Beach and in North America, in Canada, at Hopewell Rocks.
At high tide, visitors can kayak the same area where they previously walked.
The mud flats that produce the "Chocolate River."
There are some unique caves and structures to explore, and plenty of places that are "selfie" and "Instagram-ready."
I like big rocks and I cannot lie...
When we were there, one of the staff members was sharing this time lapse of the Aurora Borealis, or the Northern Lights, captured at Hopewell Rocks on September 12th.
Hopewell Rocks are open to visitors from May to October. Your entrance fee ($9 CAD) allows you two consecutive days, in order to see both high and low tides. And don't forget to see the cute mascot near the gift shop, who is always ready to bid you adieu.
Just down the road, along the Fundy Trail, is the Cape Enrage lighthouse, one of the oldest in New Brunswick, built in 1840.
Today, it is a popular spot for rappelling, zip lining and rock climbing.
Have you been to Hopewell Rocks or any other places in the Atlantic provinces of Canada? What are your recommendations?
