Venture Insight

Travel from the northernmost tip of the island of Newfoundland to the most easterly point in North America through national parks – including Gros Morne, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. This comprehensive tour features the best of the “the Far East of the Western World.”


Port au Choix Peninsula

Jutting out slightly into the Gulf of St Lawrence on Newfoundland’s north-west coast, discover the history and evidence of over 6,000 years of human history with archaeological finds amid a rugged coastline of limestone, forests and bays with ancient burial sites, settlements and original artefacts on view from slate spears to harpoons.

Gros Morne National Park

Take a scenic boat trip from the small fishing village of Bonne Bay, one of many that dot the shoreline of Gros Morne, a UNESCO World Heritage Site that is lined with cliffs and waterfalls and a desert-like Tablelands area with unusual rock formations.

St. Johns

Time to explore the oldest and most easterly city in North America, wandering down narrow, criss-crossing streets naturally carved by horse and carriage with colourful houses lining the sides of steep hills and hidden alleyways.

Itinerary

day 1

Halifax

Arrive in Halifax and transfer independently to your hotel. Meet your Tour Director or Driver/Guide and fellow travellers this evening.
day 2

Halifax to Port Aux Basques

Travel via Truro and Antigonish to cross over the Canso Causeway to Cape Breton Island. Board the Marine Atlantic ferry for a relaxing overnight* crossing to Port aux Basques, your port of entry on the island of Newfoundland. * Please note: The Marine Atlantic ferry schedule changes from year to year. As such, a day crossing may be necessary and in that case you would overnight in Port aux Basques.
day 3

Port Aux Basques to Port Au Choix

Drive through the Codroy Valley and through Gros Morne National Park - to the fishing community of Port au Choix to learn of ancient cultures. The Port au Choix Peninsula juts slightly out into the Gulf of St. Lawrence on Newfoundland’s northwest coast and people have lived here for 5,500 years.
day 4

Port Au Choix to L’anse Au Clair

Board the ferry from St. Barbe to cross the Strait of Belle Isle to Labrador. Continue to Red Bay National Historic Site, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. This mystical place takes the essence of Labrador coastal living and transposes it onto a tapestry of rich culture and history.
day 5

L’anse Au Clair to Anthony

Return to Newfoundland and travel to L’Anse aux Meadows National Historic Site, the first cultural discovery in the world to receive recognition as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. June and July are the best time of year to see Titanic-size icebergs.
day 6

St. Anthony to Cow Head

Enjoy a morning whale watching boat tour in St. Anthony before travelling to Cow Head in Gros Morne National Park for a two-night stay.
day 7

Gros Morne National Park

Discover why Gros Morne National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is truly one of the highlights of your trip with a scenic boat tour on Bonne Bay; be on the look-out for the bald eagles that frequent the deep waters of the fjord. Also visit the Tablelands; this mountain of flat-topped rock of a kind usually found only deep in the earth’s mantle is an awe-inspiring sight. Today will be an unforgettable experience; some say the scenery that Gros Morne offers is unequalled in Eastern Canada.
day 8

Cow Head to Gander

Have your camera at the ready as your time in Gros Morne National Park draws to a close. Later, travel through Central Newfoundland on to Gander where you will spend the night.
day 9

Gander to Clarenville

Enjoy a scenic drive along the rocky coast of Notre Dame Bay leads to the beautiful outport of Twilingate where you will visit Long Point Lighthouse and the Prime Berth Fishery & Heritage Centre. Keep your camera close at hand for wildlife as you drive through Terra Nova National Park and on to Clarenville, your home for the next two nights.
day 10

Bonavista + Trinity

Experience the two quaint, historic towns of Bonavista and charming Trinity. Stroll the lanes and explore the many historic buildings preserved from the 18th century.
day 11

Clarenville to St. John’s

day 12

St John’s

Visit Bay Bulls for one of the highlights of your trip, a boat tour in the Witless Bay Ecological Reserve to search for puffins and other seabirds.
