Itinerary

    Day 1: St. John’s, NL, Canada
    Begin Your Adventure

    Welcome to St. John’s—Newfoundland’s historic, vibrant capital. Sailing out of the port of St. John’s, Signal Hill keeps watch as we exit the world-famous Narrows. The charming houses of the Battery are always a hit with shutterbugs. Watch for icebergs, whales, and seabirds as we sail!

  • Checking out the shops in saint pierre

    Day 2: Saint-Pierre, France
    Savour European Shops & Cafés

    Indulge in the colourful town of Saint-Pierre, a charming start to your trip. Just off the shores of Newfoundland lie the islands of Saint-Pierre and Miquelon—an official territory of France.

    Wind through charming streets lined with shops, houses, and cafés that bring a taste of Europe to the east coast of North America.

  • Traditional miawpukek gathering

    Day 3: Miawpukek (Conne River)
    Experience Mi'kmaw Culture

    Receive a formal welcome from local leaders of the First Nations community of Miawpukek.

    Learn more about the history of the community, formerly called Conne River, which became a permanent settlement sometime around 1822. Before then, it was one of many semi-permanent camping sites used by Mi'kmaw people, who traditionally travelled nomadically throughout the east coast of Canada.

    Have a chance to explore this special community, which was established as a reserve in 1987 and has successfully bridged traditional knowledge and contemporary practice.

  • Town of francois

    Day 4–5: Southern Coast
    Explore Scenic Coastlines & Remote Outports

    Journey through the beautiful and windswept coast of southern Newfoundland, dotted with bays, coves, and a few remaining remote outport communities.

    Admire outstanding geology and gorgeous botanical life.

    Spot plentiful birds, whales, and other wildlife as we make the most of every opportunity for Zodiac and land excursions.

    A visit here will be a highlight of your trip!

    Day 6–7: Gros Morne National Park & Woody Point
    Hike through Incredible Geology

    Stretch your legs with a walk or hike at Gros Morne National Park.

    Soak in the extraordinary views of beautiful Bonne Bay and be sure to take time to explore the park’s excellent interpretation centre and the town of Woody Point.

    Witness for yourself the spectacular Tablelands, a six-hundred-metre plateau that forms one of the world’s best examples of exposed mantle.

    Normally found below the Earth’s crust, the mineral-rich rocks support very little life, making the Tablelands an eerie landscape.

  • Beautiful view of small village

    Day 8: Red Bay
    Soak in Basque Whaling History

    Make a stop in Labrador at the Red Bay Basque Whaling Station, which became a UNESCO World Heritage site in 2013.

    Learn firsthand about how Basque whalers operated out of the harbour in the 1500s, creating what was to be North America’s first export industry.

    Browse through the excellent interpretation centre to see the tools, personal items, and navigational instruments recovered from the wreck of the whaling ship San Juan, which was lost in a storm in 1565 and found centuries later submerged in the harbour.

    Visit nearby Saddle Island to delve even deeper into the history of the whaling industry.

  • Conversation with a viking in lanse aux meadows

    Day 9: L’Anse aux Meadows
    Immerse Yourself in Viking Archaeology

    Wander through the reconstructed Viking habitation at L’Anse aux Meadows, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and the only authenticated Norse settlement in North America.

    Learn more about the archaeological remains that date to approximately 1000 CE, and how—amazingly—the site was first found here in 1960 by a close reading of the Viking sagas.

    Be sure to visit the superb interpretation centre and meet the actors in period costumes as you make your way through the reconstructed Norse-style sod buildings. This is a must-see for any visitor to Newfoundland and Labrador!

    Day 10–11: Northeast Coast
    Visit Picturesque Villages & Charming Communities

    The northeast coast of Newfoundland is known for the dozens of picturesque villages that dot its rocky shores, and we’ll find harbour in one of these unique communities. We look forward to a characteristically warm Newfoundland welcome upon our arrival.

    Photographers will have their work cut out for them capturing all the special charm of classic island communities and picturesque coastlines.

    Day 12: St. John’s, NL, Canada
    Wave a Fond Farewell

    Complete your journey by sailing back through the picturesque Narrows and into St. John’s harbour.

    Say your farewells in this cultural hotspot and what is sometimes called North America's oldest city.
