Detailed Itinerary

Saturday – DAY 1 – Arrive Corner Brook*

Check into your accommodations in Corner Brook where you will spend your first night in Newfoundland & Labrador.   

*If you are arriving late, you may wish to overnight in Deer Lake instead of Corner Brook and this may be requested on booking for no additional charge subject to availability.

Sunday – DAY 2 – Corner Brook to Port au Choix

Meet your Tour Director or Driver/Guide and other traveling companions this morning at your hotel and travel through Gros Morne National Park - to be enjoyed later on during your tour - 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.

(Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner)

Monday – DAY 3 – 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, where the Basques had a whaling station in the 16th century.  This mystical place takes the essence of Labrador coastal living and transposes it onto a tapestry of rich culture and history. Spend the night in Labrador. 

(Breakfast, Dinner)

Tuesday – DAY 4 – L’Anse au Clair to St. 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.  Hear of the Vikings who walked here over a thousand years ago.

(Breakfast, Dinner)

Wednesday – DAY 5 – 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.

(Breakfast, Dinner)

Note: June and early July are the best time to see Titanic-size icebergs.

Thursday – DAY 6 – Gros Morne Touring

Discover why Gros Morne National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site is truly one of the highlights of your tour with a scenic boat tour; be on the look-out for the bald eagles that frequent the deep waters of the fjord while you hear the history of the small villages nestled on the shores.    Today will be an unforgettable experience; some say the scenery that Gros Morne offers is unequaled in Eastern Canada. 

 (Breakfast, Boxed Lunch, Dinner)

Friday – DAY 7 – Depart Deer Lake

Have your camera at the ready as your time in Gros Morne National Park draws to a close.  Continue onto Deer Lake where your tour ends at Deer Lake Regional Airport this morning.
