Newfoundland’s rugged coastline affords ocean views dotted with icebergs, seabirds and whales. On this fascinating hiking adventure, explore the seascape with qualified experts who discuss the geology, flora, fauna and history of the island, and hike inland trails to study the region’s migratory birds, wildlife and ecology.


Highlights

• Hike the Klondike Trail to Puffin Island with magnificent views of puffins, kittiwakes, whales, other sea life and spectacular coastal scenery.
• Walk Skerwink Trail with its coastal sea stacks, where forest and meadow meet rocky headlands. The trail is rated by Travel + Leisure magazine as one of the Top 35 walks in North America and Europe.
• Travel by boat from New Bonaventure to Kerley’s Harbour with a skipper who is a fisherman born in this enchanting and long-abandoned community.
Due to the nature of this program, listening devices are not available.
