Starting and ending in historic St. John’s, we experience Newfoundland’s lively culture. And dramatic scenery in daily expedition stops. A visit to the French island of Saint-Pierre completes the adventure. The welcome we receive in Newfoundland’s outport communities is warm and genuine; the music and stories are unforgettable.
Though Newfoundland and Labrador is Canada’s newest province, joining in 1949, it has a human history that dates back almost 6,000 years. At Gros Morne National Park, the planet’s mantle frames fjords that would be at home in Norway; on the Avalon Peninsula, a chunk of what was once Africa meets remnants of the Appalachian Mountains. We’ll visit Red Bay’s Basque Whaling Station, learn about the Viking history in North America at L’Anse aux Meadows, and enjoy a taste of the Mi’kmaq culture in Miawpukek First Nation. We’ll do it all in the company of a lively expedition team of local musicians, artists, and naturalists.
This expedition is ideally timed for fall colors, foraging, and hiking. Experience the province’s legendary music, food, and hospitality as it was meant to be—by Sea!
