Friendliness is not just a word in Newfoundland.....it is a way of life ! This is Eastern Canada’s greatest destination. Nowhere else in all of our great Nation will you find as much warmth among its people as you will on this tour. Stand on Signal Hill and view one of the greatest city harbours in all of North America. Sail across the strait of Belle-Isle and step back a few hundred years to the era of the great whale hunts. Drive along the South arm of Gros Morne National Park.
This performance takes you into the heart of the remarkable true story of 7,000 stranded passengers and the small town in Newfoundland that welcomed them. Cultures clashed and nerves ran high, but uneasiness turned into trust, music soared into the night, and gratitude grew into enduring friendships.
The setting is warm & country and we have planned what we describe as “an old fashioned Christmas.” Your memorable experience starts with a finger food reception upon arrival, just the very beginning of your cozy Country Christmas celebration!
What better way to enjoy summer vacation than to relish in the highlights and attractions of this beautiful Country we call home….CANADA! Departing from home, we make the short drive to Montreal where you board the lovely Holland American ms Zaandam, for your seven night cruise.
Since medieval times, towns and cities across Germany come alive with the sights, sounds and smells of Christmas during the month of December. Charming Christmas markets begin to appear at the beginning of December boasting local artisans, handmade toys and delectable eats just to name a few. An authentic market experience can be found in old Québec City thanks to its stunning old-world European charm.
