Download Circumnavigation of Newfoundland Detailed Itinerary
Day 1: St. John’s, Newfoundland
We meet in St. John's, Newfoundland's historic, vibrant capital. Picturesque and welcoming, it has been continuously inhabited since 1498, allowing it to boast the designation of North America's oldest European settlement.
Day 2: Trinity Bay
During the 1720's Trinity was home to about 30 permanent families and host to 200-300 seasonal fishermen per year. By 1869, the population peaked at more than 800 people.
Day 3: Fogo Island
Located 15km off Newfoundland's northeast coast, Fogo Island was originally named 'fuego' or 'fire' by the Portuguese, after fires set by early fishermen were seen burning on the island. A lucrative crab fishery has since replaced the salmon and cod fisheries that once supported the outport communities of the island. Fogo Island supports 11 communities, and a landmark proclaimed by the Flat Earth Society as one of the four corners of the Earth.
Day 4: Notre Dame Bay
Notre Dame Bay was home to Native cultures like the Dorset Palaeo-Eskimos and the Maritime Archaic Indians,

We call in this morning at one of the world’s most important archaeological sites, North America’s only authenticated Viking settlement, L’Anse aux Meadows.

On the northern side of the larger island, the village of Miquelon is inhabited by 600 people, mostly of Basque and Acadian ancestry.
