From viking settlements to majestic fjords, make an ocean voyage around Canada’s easternmost province.
The first thing to expect from expedition travel is to expect the unexpected. (Say that five times fast.)
Before I’d even stepped aboard Adventure Canada’s Ocean Endeavor, sitting at anchor in the port of St. John’s, my planned circumnavigation of Newfoundland had become, well, not. Pack ice paired with persistent southwesterly winds made the Strait of Belle Isle, the waterway separating the Labrador Peninsula from the island of Newfoundland, impassable.
And I wouldn’t have had it any other way.
I came to Newfoundland without many expectations; I knew it was in Eastern Canada and that it was pronounced “new-fun-land” with an emphasis on the “land.” That’s about it.
What I found was one of the most genuine places I’ve ever had the pleasure to visit.
