Feed Your Sense of Adventure

Adventure Canada's Taste of Place culinary program has partnered with Ocean Wise Seafood to guide and deliver a menu that combines sustainability with an outstanding culinary experience aboard the Newfoundland Circumnavigation. Join us and our experts committed to healthy oceans for generations to come.

Enduring Traditions

Newfoundlanders are resourceful, with deep connections to the food that land and sea provide. Hunting, fishing, foraging, and gardening have been the mainstays of the enduring traditions that they hold dear.

Incorporating these cultural values in our expedition allows us to increase our initiatives and work towards our goal of becoming an industry leader in sustainable and regenerative tourism.

Designed by National Food Leaders

From hand line-caught cod to sustainably produced mussels, Canadian chefs and food leaders have designed some of the Taste of Place menu with several locally-sourced products recommended by the Ocean Wise Seafood Program. Join the first sustainably-sourced expedition cruise in Canada on an educational, cultural and exceptional culinary travel experience of a lifetime!

Raise Awareness of the Challenges

Food engages every aspect of our lives. Eating with knowledge, conscious choice, and joy not only connects us to each other, but raises awareness of the complexities and challenges of the food system, and empowers us to advocate on behalf of improving it at all levels.

Learn about local food

A Team Effort

We’re inspired to be teamed up with leading food organizations and champions in developing culturally and environmentally regenerative tourism programs. Together, we have a deep belief and operating ethic that “locals know best” and that it takes a whole village to build a healthy food system.
