Departing October 1, 2023

Visit picturesque villages and charming communities. Immerse yourself in Viking archaeology and Basque whaling history. Enjoy the scenic coastlines and hike through incredible geology. Explore Newfoundland in autumn, when trees and shrubs are in peak colour—and locals’ spirits are as vibrant as the stunning scenery! Expand your knowledge of the places we visit alongside Canadian Geographic ambassador Jenny Wong and Adventure Canada experts on this life-changing journey.  

Also known affectionately as the Rock, Newfoundland is where hearty fishing families have endured for generations, wresting a living from the sea and developing a famously extroverted culture that’s rich in folk music, friendly humour, delightful dialects, and unique foods. The best way to see it all is the old way, by sea.
