On your Interlude to Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada, the most easterly edge of North America, you will witness some of the most beautiful maritime exposures. Lighthouses, natural beach fronts, fascinating bird sanctuaries and so much more! This is where the sun rises first and is home to the oldest settlement and the oldest city in North America, but also is the youngest province of Canada. A vast land, with a relatively small population, Newfoundland and Labrador has some of the friendliest people you’ll ever meet. Here, you can immerse yourself in wilderness solitude one day and embrace a vibrant culture at the cutting edge of the contemporary western world the next. This is a land of rich history and natural wonders: stunning coastlines, breaching whales, icebergs, and some of the most incredible skyscapes you’ll ever see. From vibrant cities to quaint, historical outports, mountain ranges, rivers, waterfalls and winding coastlines, there are always fascinating places to see and countless things to do and this tour brings you the best of all possible choices. Newfoundland and Labrador is one of the best places to see and appreciate nature in all its glory.
The province is also home to three National Parks, 18 Wilderness and Ecological Reserves, and breathtaking botanical gardens. I was interested to discover that this place has no ragweed, no snakes, no skunks, no raccoons, and no poisonous insects or arachnids.
Icebergs totally fascinate me and there is no place like Iceberg Alley for viewing these 10,000-year-old frosty giants. On a sunny day, you can view these glacial giants from many points along the northern and eastern coasts – in every shape and size, ranging in color from snow-white to the deepest aquamarine. What a site!!!! Their sheer size sends the mind racing, and that’s not even counting the ninety-percent still unseen below the surface. It was these types and sizes of bergs that sank the infamous Titanic, a mere 400 miles from the coast- daunting.
Interestingly, Icebergs are so plentiful that they have been put them to good use. There is Iceberg Water and Iceberg Vodka, Gin, and Rum and, of course, the popular Iceberg Beer – all so refreshing, no matter what time of year. A must to try and the food is fantastic as well.
This 13 day sojourn has something for everyone. Please review the attached full itinerary and plan to spend July amidst the marvelous, majestic, maritime visages on a fully escorted adventure. What are you waiting for??
