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, St. John's is proud of its 500 year history.
Day 2: Terra Nova National Park
Terra Nova National Park of Canada is a place where long fingers of the North Atlantic Ocean touch the island boreal forest of Eastern Newfoundland. Rocky headlands provide shelter from the awesome power of the open ocean. The landscape of the park varies from the rugged cliffs and sheltered inlets of the coastal region to the rolling forested hills, bogs and ponds of the inland. Cultural history abounds in the remnants of sawmills and past human cultures.
Day 3: Conche
On the Great Northern Peninsula, the people of Conche welcome us into their charming community. Complete with ties to its history, religion, the fishery and wildlife, Conche is made up of mostly Irish descent. We will explore the colourful town on foot, but don't be surprised if you are invited in by local residents for a 'mug up'!
Day 4: St. Anthony and L'Anse aux Meadows
A UNESCO World Heritage Site, L'Anse Aux Meadows is the only authenticated Norse settlement in North America. The archeological remains found here in 1960 date to approximately 1000 A.D.
Day 5: Red Bay
Today we stop at Red Bay, the fishing village and former site of several Basque whaling stations, occupied between 1550 and the early 1600s when they hunted right and bowhead whales.
Day 6: Gros Morne National Park
It has been said, "Gros Morne is to geology what the Galapagos are to biology." The Park's mountains are both picturesque, and highly unusual: the Tablelands, a 600m (1900 ft) high plateau, forms one of the world's best examples of ancient rock exposed from the earth's interior.
Day 7: Port aux Port Peninsula
Our day ashore explores the coastline and outports of Port Aux Port, an area proudly supporting its francophone connections.
Days 7 - 9: South Coast
The wild and windswept coast of Southern Newfoundland is home to a few remaining outport communities, still largely cut off from mainstream travel. Visits here are often a highlight of our trips. There are many unique bays and coves to explore via Zodiac or land excursion.
Day 10: Miquelon, France
The territory of St. Pierre and Miquelon, France is all that remains of the once-vast French holdings in North America. Off the tip of the Burin Peninsula, Newfoundland, the territory consists of eight islands, two of which are inhabited.
Day 11: St. John’s, Newfoundland
Discover one of the oldest cities in North America, a city unlike any other.
