Come explore Newfoundland’s natural wonders, rich history, rural charms, and locally sourced cuisines, from the bustling fishing village of Bonavista to the forested shores of Plate Cove. During our week of adventure amidst these windswept landscapes, we’ll experience traditional music, folklore, and culture. We’ve timed this trip alongside Feile Seamus Creagh, a festival of traditional music featuring world-class musicians from both Newfoundland and Ireland. In addition to enjoying local concerts, we’ll get to know Newfoundlanders’ passion for the land, as well as the food produced by it, as we venture into smaller towns along the Avalon Peninsula. You’ll head home with a sense of the tenacious, charming, and unique character of Newfoundland and the people who call it home.
For flights in and out of St. John's International Airport (YYT), you should plan to arrive by 4 p.m. on Monday, September 7, and depart anytime on Thursday, September 17. If you'd like to extend your stay before or after the trip, we're happy to reserve extra nights at our hotel in St. John's or provide additional recommendations. For those interested in a road-trip adventure, there is a vehicle and passenger ferry that makes stops in Nova Scotia and Newfoundland.
This trip is fairly active. Travelers should be reasonably fit and feel comfortable walking three to five miles over the course of each day and remaining outside and on their feet for long periods of time. We will be walking on roads, beaches, and dirt paths. The itinerary also involves time on a boat, so we recommend you be comfortable around and on water.
