Best time to visit Moncton:

Late Spring to Early Fall (June to September):

  • Late spring to early fall is the most popular time to visit New Brunswick. During this period, the weather is pleasant, with daytime temperatures ranging from the 60s to 70s Fahrenheit (15-26°C). This is the best time for outdoor adventures such as hiking in Fundy National Park, exploring the Bay of Fundy coastline, and enjoying water activities like kayaking and whale watching. Summer is also ideal for visiting historic sites and cultural festivals.

Late Fall (October to November):

  • Late fall is a great time for those who prefer quieter visits and cooler weather. The fall foliage in regions like the Saint John River Valley turns into vibrant shades of red, orange, and yellow, making it ideal for scenic drives and hiking. The weather can be crisp, with daytime temperatures ranging from the 40s to 50s Fahrenheit (4-15°C). Fall is also a good time for apple picking and attending harvest festivals.

Winter (December to February):

  • Winter in New Brunswick offers excellent opportunities for winter sports enthusiasts. The province has ski resorts like Sugarloaf and Crabbe Mountain, with cold weather and ample snowfall. Daytime temperatures can range from the teens to 30s Fahrenheit (-9 to 4°C). This is the best time for skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing, and enjoying cozy winter getaways. The holiday season brings festive events and decorations.

Early Spring (March to May):

  • Early spring is a transitional period with varying weather. While it's not the most popular time for outdoor activities due to melting snow and wet conditions, it can be a quieter time to visit. Daytime temperatures start to warm up, ranging from the 30s to 50s Fahrenheit (-1 to 15°C) in the lower elevations. Early spring is a good time for birdwatching as migratory birds return.
