Weekend in St. John’s | An Historic and Vibrant City

Holiday Duration: 4 Nights

Overview

Overview

People have been visiting St. John’s for over 500 years, but it has far more to offer the weekend visitor than just history! Enjoy the many sea food restaurants, shops and galleries, live entertainment and the Celtic music which has developed a style all of its own since the early settlers arrived from the UK and Ireland in the 16th century. But you can’t ignore the past, and this part of colonial Canada has such an exciting one. Visit Signal Hill (which in 1901, was on the receiving end of the first transatlantic wireless signal by Marconi) and Cape Spear, the most easterly point in North America, better known as the Far East of the Western World.

Also special to this area of Canada is the wildlife, and you will enjoy a whale watching cruise aboard a catamaran.

 

Suggested Hotels

"The Rocky Mountaineer was superb"

Everything went to plan and ran smoothly with planes, cars, trains and accommodation. The Rocky Mountaineer was superb and a great experience, so well organised and such good service on board. The selection of hotels we ended up with was an eclectic mix. Cathedral Lodge in Field was outstanding and by far the best in terms of location, style and service. Just out of this world although the Black Fish Lodge experience was equally good although quite different. Lovely people there who took good care of us with amazing wild life spotting opportunities along with the fishing.

I can’t thank you enough for your patience in the planning process getting the package together and trying to match to our specific requirements. You always understood the brief and were quick in following up options and so on. Not an inexpensive holiday for sure but so memorable. It will be very hard to beat.
