Enjoy the highlights of St. John’s before leaving the tourists behind and taking the road less travelled. Immerse yourself in the history, culture, and natural beauty of the Baccelieu Trail. Visit an arctic explorers dwelling, see evidence of wars between the French and English, learn the legends of Pirates, and find out why Amelia Earhart is commemorated here all amidst a stunning setting.
As you set sail for a resettled Newfoundland community, keep a watch for whales and dolphins as you make your way to the island. Enjoy Newfoundland entertainment and a traditional “boil up” as you explore a lost piece of history on Placentia Bay.
The Burin Peninsula invites you in next with its magic. Historic shipwrecks and rescues, mining disasters, a devastating tsunami, and the heyday of the schooner fishery are all the historical bounty of this place.
Then on to Europe! Enjoy sipping wine and eating baguettes as you walk in the steps of Al Capone during the prohibition days, hear about the bloodless coup of WWII, visit a ghost town on an island, explore a sand dune and learn about the struggles of existing in this unique part of Europe.
