New Brunswick's geographical diversity has something for everyone, from mountains to fertile river valleys to Atlantic coastlines, both rocky and gentle. Fans of fishing visit the Miramichi River valley in the center of the province or, in colder months, go ice-fishing on the frozen bays and inland lakes. The northeastern branch of the Appalachian Mountains provides natural beauty and opportunities for hiking and climbing. The French-speakers of the Acadian Peninsula welcome skiers; New Brunswick is the destination in the Atlantic provinces for winter sports enthusiasts. In the summer and fall, popular destinations include Grand Manan and other resort islands as well as the province's two national parks: Fundy National Park, in the south, with its rugged coastline carved by the highest tides in the world; and Kouchibouguac, in the east on the milder Northumberland Strait, with sandy beaches and the warmest salt water on the Atlantic coast until the southern United States.
