We are considering this trip and are wondering if there's anyone out there that has already done this trip and could comment on the hiking opportunities.
Lauren Smith Jan 04, 2016 at 02:30 PM

Hi Daniel! For this program, there is one walk to Western Brook Pond, but there aren't many other opportunities to hike. If you are looking for a hiking program in Newfound, we do have 12391: Hike the Discovery Trail. If you have any other questions, you can contact me at lsmith@routesadventures.ca. Thanks!

we weirdos live east of Sacramento in the foothills and are traveling by public transport (no flying, so are leaving home on Friday the 20th, going via LA as the California Zephyr is running too late to make connections out of Chicago about 50% of the days. Don't forget your raingear.

My husband, Leo, and I are signed up for the Aug 17 session. We've done one other program - in Puerto Rico last year - which was a great introduction to RS. We're working our way through a stack of novels and travel logs about Newfoundland. It should be a fascinating program! And we're looking forward to meeting all of you!

Just got word I've moved from waiting list to going . My first RS program . Chose it because I have an iceberg app which states that there are roughly five times as many icebergs as previous years. Last alert was 200 icebergs along coast.
