Getting to the Chaleur Region is easy!

The Bathurst Regional Airport (ZBF) is located only 8 km away from the downtown centre. It’s a short 5-minute drive to the closest hotel – which means you’ll be checked in and ready to go before you can say “let’s get some lobster”!

There’s nothing quite like a road trip to the Maritimes! Three main routes bring you into the region: Trans-Canada Highway (NB-8N, NB-11S) and NB-180. If you’re driving an Electric Vehicle, the Chaleur Region has 4 convenient EV stations – part of NB Power’s eCharge Network!
