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.
Photographers will have their work cut out for them capturing the special charm of classic island architecture.
L’Anse aux Meadows, A UNESCO World Heritage Site, is the only authenticated former Norse settlement in North America. Today, a superb interpretive centre and reconstructions of the several Norse-style sod buildings make L’Anse aux Meadows a must-see for any visitor to Newfoundland.
Red Bay Basque Whaling Station became a UNESCO World Heritage site in 2013. Basque whalers operated out of the Red Bay harbour in the 1500s: North America’s first export industry.
Gros Morne’s Tablelands, a six hundred-metre plateau, form 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.
The wild and windswept coast of southern Newfoundland is home to a few remaining outport communities. Visits here are often a highlight of our trips.
There are many choices of unique bays and coves to explore via Zodiac or land excursions. The geology is outstanding, and plant life is gorgeous here. We’ll be on the watch for wildlife too. We’ll make the most of every chance to explore this beautiful and remote coast.
The First Nations community of Miawpukek became a permanent settlement sometime around 1822. Before then, it was one of many semi-permanent camping sites used by the Mi’kmaw people—who had traditionally travelled nomadically throughout the East Coast.
Explore Saint-Pierre, a last bastion of France’s colonial territories in North America. The colourful and charming shops and residences of the town of Saint-Pierre reveal its unique historical character.
Sail back into St. John's harbour for disembarkation.
