With Newfoundland less than a six-hour flight from the UK, this remote Atlantic Canadian island is close enough for a short adventure that will be full of unique experiences. Take to the ocean in search of whales and Atlantic Puffins. Visit ecological reserves where sea birds have settled by the thousands. Explore enchanting villages with pastel coloured clapboard houses. Follow scenic coastal drives that have more twists and turns than your favourite suspense novel and hike through the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Gros Morne National Park. Take a boat tour from Twillingate to Iceberg Alley where you can see icebergs that have broken off glaciers and floated down from Greenland and Canada’s Arctic (spring to early summer). This is just the ‘Tip of The Iceberg’ of what Newfoundland has to offer you.

Itinerary

Day 1  UK to St. John’s
On arrival from the UK in to St. John’s, Newfoundland, collect your rental vehicle and take the short drive to your downtown hotel.

In the evening head to George Street, known for its many restaurants, bars and pubs. Hotel – Leaside Manor
Day 2  Witless Bay Whale Watching, Puffins (42 miles)
Drive to Bay Bulls where you embark on a cruise to the incredible Witless Bay Ecological Reserve. The area attracts over 2.5 million seabirds and is home to 300,000 pairs of Atlantic Puffins. The waters are also a great feeding ground for whales, but even if you aren’t lucky enough to spot the wildlife, the wondrous seascapes you will witness are worth the cruise alone. Hotel – Leaside Manor
Day 3  St. John’s to Trinity (215 miles)
Your visit to Bonavista Peninsula will take you on a journey through maritime history and to where Venetian navigator and explorer John Cabot first landed in 1497, discovering the coast of North America.

Join a Trinity Pageant, a walking theatre through the village bringing the history of the area alive.
Staying at  Artisan Inn
Day 5  Trinity to Twillingate (192 miles)
Today will offer both natural and cultural experiences. Stop in Terra Nova National Park and kayak around sheltered bays or hike through dense forests where you might spot moose, beavers or eagles.
