Newfoundland & Labrador

AUGUST 8-16, 2019

9 Days 

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. Visit the North American Viking landing site. Enjoy a traditional screech-in ceremony with the locals. Be prepared to fall under the spell of true Newfoundland hospitality.

Itinerary Details

Day 1 Cornwall – Corner Brook Newfoundland.  Your Newfoundland adventure begins today with a connecting flight from Ottawa. Arrive Deer Lake airport and transfer to your hotel in Corner Brook for your first overnight.

Day 2 Corner Brook – Plum Point The journey north this morning allows you the opportunity of travelling through parts of Gros Morne Park where you will visit Birchy Head, Shoal Brook, Trout River and lunch in Woody Point. 

Day 3 Plum Point – L`Anse-Au-Clair This morning cross the Strait of Belle Isle and Iceberg Alley by ferry to the shores of Labrador the “other part” of Newfoundland. You will visit Red Bay, a small community steeped in the history of the Basque Whaling industry that thrived along the coast over 400 years ago.  Red Bay is the home of the whaling industry museums who connect visitors with the ancient traditions, folklore along with the ancient crafts that continue to exist today. The museum will also reveal the gripping story of the oil-laden San Juan that sank in 33 feet of water in Red Bay. And then there are the tangy baked apples fashioned into a pie, the locals call them “cloud berries” a lumpy-looking golden fruit that grows in profusion in southern Labrador. Lessons in sea lore, sea-washed scenery, down-home hospitality and good food sum up this day beautifully.

Day 4 L`Anse-Au-Clair – Plum Point This morning takes you back across the Strait of Belle Isle to visit the UNESCO World Heritage Viking site at L`Anse-aux-Meadows, site of the first European settlement in North America where you will experience true Viking lifestyle of 1000 years ago.
