DAY 1 WINNIPEG – CORNER BROOK, NEWFOUNDLAND Arrive at Deer Lake on the West Coast of Newfoundland and transfer to Corner Brook to begin your holiday. This evening we will host a get together to meet our fellow travellers.
DAY 2 CORNER BROOK – PLUM POINT This morning, we take the Viking trail to beautiful Gros Morne National Park. We will travel along some of the most spectacular coastlines in North America and visit the National Historic Park at Port aux Choix, which interprets the intriguing history and lifestyle of the Maritime Archaic people who lived here over 3000 years ago. This evening we will enjoy a welcome dinner.
DAY 3 PLUM POINT Today, we travel the coastline to St. Anthony to visit the home of the famous medical missionary, Sir Wilfred Grenfell. The highlight of this day is our visit to the UNESCO World Heritage site at L’Anse aux Meadows, home of Leif the Lucky and the Viking people who settled this area as early as 1000 A.D.
DAY 4 PLUM POINT – LABRADOR Keep a sharp eye out for whales as we travel across the Straits of Belle Isle to the shores of Labrador. Here we visit the recently discovered Whaling Station founded by the Basques in the early 1500’s and learn about the “modern techniques” used by these whalers and the hardships they endured. Later we visit the tallest lighthouse in the province at L’Anse Amour.
DAY 5 LABRADOR – ROCKY HARBOUR This morning, we return to the island and continue to explore the rugged coastline. Stopping at The Arches Provincial Park, where we will learn about the many unique geological formations for which Newfoundland is famous. Tonight we will partake in a traditional Newfoundland dinner.
DAY 6 ROCKY HARBOUR This morning, we take a Water Shuttle tour across beautiful Bonne Bay to Woody Point where we spend time in Gros Morne National Park UNESCO World Heritage Site. We visit the new Discovery Centre and view the famous Tableland Mountains. It is this area that earned the park its UNESCO World Heritage status and its nickname, Galapagos of Plate Tectonics.
DAY 7 ROCKY HARBOUR – GANDER This morning, we start our trek eastward, officially leaving North America and crossing onto a new geological frontier as we enter King’s Point and the beginning of Newfoundland’s Oceanic/European plate. A beautiful harbour provides the perfect backdrop for our lunch and an eventful morning of whale interpretation and pottery exhibits. This afternoon, we visit the charming community of Lewisporte, “The Gateway to the North”, where we will hear stories of the 911 tragedy from those who welcomed the world into their homes.
DAY 8 GANDER – PORT BLANDFORD/ CLARENVILLE This morning, we are off on the “Road to the Isles,” before travelling across “Tickles and Runs” to spend time on beautiful Twillingate Island – one of Newfoundland’s oldest and most interesting fishing communities. We then travel to Terra Nova National Park to view the vistas of Newman Sound.
DAY 9 PORT BLANDFORD/CLARENVILLE This morning, we travel to the gem of the Island, the historic village of Trinity – one of the oldest communities in North America. Then it’s out to Cape Bonavista, the landfall of John Cabot in 1497, for a chance to walk the cliffs and enjoy the spectacular coastal scenery. Here, we visit the Ryan Premises and have an opportunity to learn about inshore fishing techniques that have allowed this town to thrive for hundreds of years.
DAY 10 PORT BLANDFORD/CLARENVILLE – ST. JOHN’S Today, we travel to the Avalon Peninsula to the town of Bay Bulls. From here, we take a boat trip to the Witless Bay Ecological Reserve where we view thousands of Atlantic Puffins, Murres and other seabirds that nest here in the Summer. Witless Bay is also home to many Humpback, Minke, and Fin whales in the Summer months, so whale sightings are a definite possibility. This afternoon, we visit Cape Spear National Historic Park – the most easterly point of land in North America – before heading into St. John’s, the capital of Newfoundland and Labrador.
DAY 11 ST. JOHN’S This morning, we will tour historic St. John’s, the oldest city in North America. This trip includes a visit to Cabot Tower and Signal Hill where we can view the famous “Narrows” and admire the architecture of old St. John’s. This afternoon is left free. This evening, we share our Fehr-Way Dinner.
DAY 12 ST. JOHN’S – WINNIPEG All good things must come to an end, and so we bid a fond farewell to our newest yet oldest Province. As you fly homeward, it will be with many delightful memories of an authentic Newfoundland experience that will be remembered for years to come.
