    6 Night Itinerary Escorted

    Thousands of years of history come alive as you explore the West Coast of Newfoundland and Southern Labrador, home to three UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Witness the beauty of Gros Morne National Park where you’ll take a boat tour of the magnificent fjords, carved into the landscape where glacial valleys were once flooded by the sea. Experience the geographical wonder of the Tablelands, visit the small villages scattered along the shoreline and encounter the warmth and hospitality of the local people.

    The second UNESCO World Heritage Site is located at L’Anse aux Meadows. This archeological site has been reconstructed to reflect how it once looked when the Vikings landed. It is the earliest know European settlement in the New World.

    And finally you will travel to Labrador to explore the southern coast and Red Bay, the newest addition to the UNESCO World Heritage Site list. Red Bay has a particularly rare and fascinating history as it was once the base of the world’s first large-scale whale oil production.

    Learn about ancient peoples; the Maritime Archaic and Dorset Indians at Port Aux Choix, the Vikings in L’Anse Aux Meadows, and the Basque Whalers in Red Bay, as you meet the hospitable and friendly people of today.

    Take a boat tour in St. Anthony where you may see whales and, depending on the time of year, thousand year old icebergs!
