From the Inuktitut word Torngait , meaning 'place of spirits', the Torngat Mountains have been home to Inuit and their predecessors for thousands of years, with archaeological evidence reaching back almost 7,000 years.
Day 9: Hebron
Long-abandoned Hebron was once one of the most northerly communities on the north Labrador coast. A Moravian Mission station was constructed here from 1829 to 1831 but the main buildings - the church, the mission house and the store - were not inhabited until 1837.

Day 12: L’Anse aux Meadows & Conche
On our visit to the Great Northern Peninsula, we call in at one of the world’s most important archaeological sites, North America’s only authenticated Viking settlement, L’Anse aux Meadows.
Day 13: 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. We spend time experiencing island life in Fogo Town before heading further south.
Day 14: St. John’s
We finish in St. John's, Newfoundland's historic, vibrant capital. Picturesque and welcoming, it has been continuously fished since 1498, allowing it to boast the designation of North America's oldest European settlement. We will leave the Sea Adventurer here.
