Grand Falls Gorge
Admire the most impressive waterfall in New Brunswick, right in the centre of town!
Welcome to the beauty and splendor of the Grand Falls Gorge! This natural resource adorning Grand Falls/Grand-Sault has a unique attractiveness which can be enjoyed in a variety of ways. Explore by foot to see fantastic views from various lookouts on walking trails, or take a guided pontoon boat tour for a different perspective. For a closer view of this spectacular sight, climb down 401 steps from the La Rochelle Centre to visit the Wells in the Rocks. You can also explore the famous gorge by kayaking its waters or swooshing over it on a zip line! Prepare yourself for a thrill of a lifetime on a zip line adventure that offers a one-of-a-kind way to see this natural wonder.
The excitement does not end there. You can also deepell your way down a 40-m (135-ft.) rock wall into the gorge. This descent into the abyss edges you further down the rock, face down, and adds a new jolt of excitement and another view of the unbelievable scenery below.
It took millions of years for the powerful cascade of water to carve the majestic Saint John River bed from the rock and form the phenomenal Grand Falls Gorge, which stretches over 1.5 km (1 mi.), encircling half of the town and boasting walls up to 70 m (230 ft.) high.
Discover the interpretive centre, a local artisans gift shop and a small campground located at the top of the cliff where you can hear the roar of the waterfalls.
The largest waterfall in New Brunswick has carved out a unique natural feature. Explore it by boating, zip lining and deepelling adventures!
