A Colourful Journey

Woodstock, New Brunswick  Canada

The Saint John River offers one of the most scenic leaf peeping routes in the region. Follow the blue thread of water as it winds through mountains, hills, and valleys flanked by a thick blanket of seriously stunning trees. 

From the forests near the city of Edmundston to the waterfront capital of Fredericton and river ferries of the lower river valley, a drive along this route offers great food, plenty of culture, and some seriously good leaf-peeping.

We suggest a stop at a local farmers market (this is farm country, after all), taking a selfie at the world’s longest covered bridge in Hartland, and visiting a U-pick or farm to enjoy harvest activities for all ages of adventurers.
