Sightseeing Vacations

Discover the scenic, cultural and historic jewels of Canada’s easternmost province

A Lighthouse Inn, Whales & 'Bergs

 For a rare experience among nature’s giants, come to Quirpon Lighthouse Inn. This heritage inn will put you in the home of a 1920’s light-keeper, on the shores of ‘Iceberg Alley’. Located off Newfoundland’s northernmost tip, Quirpon is an island off the island – beautifully untouched and uninhabited save for flora, fauna and those most welcome guests – the whales! As many as 27 species may be spotted, among them Humpbacks, Minke and Orca. Its iceberg season is the longest found anywhere in Newfoundland.

Fjords, Icebergs & Moose - Gros Morne & More

 Gros Morne National Park is the place where, millennia ago, continents collided, sending huge, flat-topped mountains high into the sky. Here, glaciers spent thousands of years carving out breathtaking fjords. Moose roam, eagles soar and caribou leap in this place of solitude and dramatic natural beauty. Let these five days be an adventure that brings you a lifetime of memories.

   Best of the East - St. John's to Bonavista

   From the energy and character of St. John’s – North America’s oldest city – to tiny outports, elegant in their simplicity, there are many reasons to visit Newfoundland’s eastern coast. Wharves host local characters as colourful as the landscape, thousands of gannets fly close enough for you to hear the beating of their wings. History, nature, culture – it’s all here in abundance.

 

Off the Beaten Path - Western Newfoundland

   Would you travel to Paris and skip the Eiffel Tower?  Consider chatting with a fisherman more of a cultural highlight than theater?  Then this tour is for you! Visit where fewer people venture to experience more dramatic vistas and discover more hidden gems! Let us guide you to places that equal Gros Morne in beauty, but are still a well - kept secret where we go to play!

Off the Beaten Path - Eastern Newfoundland

   Newfoundland is one of the best places in the world for unmatched natural beauty, unique history and cultural experiences. You could spend a lifetime exploring here.  You’ve heard of Trinity and Twillingate, let us now acquaint you with Old Perlican and Grand Bank as we take you to some of the lesser known but amazing destinations with a little taste of France!                                    

Southwest Newfoundland - A secret!

 Ssh! Newfoundland’s southwest region doesn’t get all the plaudits, but it is a mecca for birdlife and boasts scenery quite unlike anywhere else on the island. We have developed a short tour that captures the excitement of the area. Available as a three-day addition to any of our other tours, this excursion will also put you in contact with the vestiges of French culture that exist in the accents and culture of a small number of French descendants.

 

Newfoundland Cultural Tour

   Isolation has its advantages. An island relies on itself for entertainment and survival, the result, a unique and vibrant culture that is reflected in our music, theatre, cuisine, and craftmanship. Dramatic scenery is a powerful enough magnet, but our experience is that time and again visitors are drawn back by the people and the culture.
