It's time to explore North America’s most north-easterly point, where the dramatic coastline, mighty fjords and wonderful wildlife will take your breath away. With a knowledgeable leader to guide the way, you’ll experience a landscape that has been shaped by the elements over thousands of years, hike easy yet spectacular trails, and enjoy delicious picnic lunches surrounded by the splendour of Newfoundland’s famous scenery. Watch huge icebergs bob past the town known as “The Iceberg Capital of the World” in the spring, go whale watching, and spot puffins at one of North America’s best viewing sites.

Intrepid says they always hire local guides. It is what they are known for. They did not have a local guide on this trip. Buyer beware. I am so, so disappointed.

A great way to explore Newfoundland. Simon was an excellent Tour Leader and seeing the puffins and icebergs were real once-in-a-lifetime experiences.
