Jonathan Hodgson

In keeping with his recent obsession with island-based natural history and cultures, Jonathan continues the trend with a fantastic 2-week tour of one of the most remote and distinct corners of North America, the Canadian province of Newfoundland & Labrador—viking sites, icebergs, teeming wildlife, charming villages, stupendous mountain and coastal scenery, and one of the most interesting histories and cultures in the Western Hemisphere. Rounding out the intrigue is a visit to St-Pierre & Miquelon, a self-governing territorial overseas collectivity of France just off the coast of Newfoundland.

Serra Hughes

Serra just concluded the first running of our tour of Atlantic Canada to rave reviews:

Enjoyed the tour, excellent tour leader, great group” – Walter J. Edmonton

It was a privilege to travel with a Maritime native and especially to go ‘home’ with her to PEI. We enjoyed all the local flavour she was able to bring to the group in the dining venues and meal selections, especially for appies.” Grant & Paula S. Calgary

I had a wonderful time- the leader, guides and bus driver were a pleasure.

There was variety and activity for the 2 weeks.” Ticia W. Plymouth, MA

[Guide] Maureen on Cabot Trail excursion was knowledgeable. The volunteer guides on Grand Manan Island, a father-daughter team, are not official guides but were delightful as they showed us around Gr Manan’s highlights. Guide in Saint John was elderly Scotsman who also knows the area well and added humor to his tour. Highlight on Campobello Island was Tea with Eleanor. The two women who did the presentation on Eleanor Roosevelt were able to convey with passion and thoroughness the essence of Eleanor. Wonderful time and highlight of the trip.” Mark & Barbara B, Aurora, CO

Thanks again for a quality trip, exceptional tour leaders and support service.” Ruth H. Oakdale, CA
