This summer sailing is ideally timed for whales, icebergs, and breeding seabirds. The island's rugged charm and geographic diversity are best appreciated when visiting by ship. At Gros Morne, the planet's mantle frames fjords that would be at home in Norway; on the Avalon Peninsula, a chunk of what was once Africa meets remnants of the Appalachian Mountains. We will visit Red Bay, learn about the Viking history in North America at L'Anse aux Meadows, and visit the legendary French Shore Tapestry at Conche.
Starting and ending in historic St. John's, we experience Newfoundland's lively culture and dramatic scenery in daily expedition stops. A visit to the French island of Saint-Pierre caps the adventure. The welcome we receive in Newfoundland's outport communities is warm and genuine; the music and stories unforgettable.
