At a Glance

Board a sturdy expedition vessel to fully circumnavigate “The Rock” — the Canadian island of Newfoundland. Close-cruise dramatic shorelines, delve into stories of Vikings and cod fishing fleets, witness our planet’s ever-shifting geology and visit tiny island outposts where hardy townsfolk emerge from their brightly painted clapboard houses to warmly welcome visitors. Keep an eye out for playful whales when on deck!
Activity Level
Keep the Pace
Walking up to two miles per day over hilly, rocky, uneven terrain. Climbing stairs between decks on board as well as external gangway stairs to transfer between the ship and Zodiacs. Most embarkations and disembarkations will be via Zodiac, which require stepping up or down about 12 inches. Zodiac landings will generally entail disembarking onto rocky or gravelly beaches, and in windy weather can make for rather splashy rides.
