Circle Newfoundland & Labrador Escorted Tour of North America's Eastern Edge

12 nights

Find yourself caught up in the friendly east coast way of life on this exciting tour that combines inspiring scenery, wildlife sightings and reminders of an ancient past. The tour begins in Halifax, Nova Scotia's attractive capital city and central port and ends in St John's, Newfoundland - one of the oldest cities in North America.


On this exploration of Canada's youngest province you'll visit many of Newfoundland's significant historical and natural sites, including the UNESCO World Heritage Sites of Gros Morne National Park and L'Anse aux Meadows, a Viking archaeological site. Along the way, you'll stand at the northern-most tip of the island of Newfoundland and journey to the eastern-most point in North America. Boat tours included in the tour offer the opportunity to see whales, sea birds and, depending on the time of the year, even massive icebergs!
