The charm of Newfoundland meets the splendour of Labrador! Newfoundland’s Gros Morne provides an glimpse into ancient geology, while in Torngat Mountains National Park, the tallest mountains east of the Rockies tower over pristine Labrador coastline. Breeding and nesting seabirds are among this voyage’s highlights. Icebergs, whales, polar bears and seals will have us scanning the horizon.
Beginning on the French island of Saint Pierre, we’ll journey through Newfoundland history, exploring French, First Nations, Basque, and Viking influences. In Labrador, we’ll visit the Inuit homeland, Nunatsiavut, as we follow the trail of the explorers, northward along Canada’s Wild East Coast.
This voyage features our Floating Book Club!

The island of St. Pierre is not merely an obscure outpost of the former French empire; it is home to a contemporary French community, complete with cafes, high fashion shopping, fine wines and cheeses.
Yet St. Pierre’s irregular streets reveal an eclectic mix of French, Canadian and Newfoundland influences—a European city at home in North America.
