Towering icebergs drift south on Arctic currents as wild birds soar above bright blue waves, where whales cavort in the glory of springtime.
Among the brightly painted clapboard houses of tiny outports, smiling faces greet curious travelers. Newfoundlanders are famous for sharing their unique culture with visitors at legendary kitchen parties. Visitors will soon find themselves revelling in the warm welcome and deep sense of community at every stop.
History haunts the rugged shores of Newfoundland. From the Vikings at L’Anse aux Meadows to the outports as deserted as the cod fishing grounds.
Geology overwhelms the mightiest works of man: the dramatic vistas of Gros Morne National Park reveal Precambrian cliffs and deep fjords that formed as magma cooled amid collisions of continental crusts.
Nature and culture nestle together, from the island of Miquelon—the last outpost of France’s former North American empire—to Fogo, where old English and Irish dialects linger.
In St. John’s, one of Canada’s great cities surrounds one of the world’s great harbours, and 500 years of history beckons at both the beginning, and ending of a trip that will live on forever in memory!
