How do I make a reservation? How and when do I pay?

The easiest way to make a reservation is to contact us by telephone. You can also book online through our website.

A non-refundable $500 deposit is payable at the time of booking; if a reservation is made within 60 days, full payment is required. Some trips require a larger deposit. If international airline bookings require a non-refundable payment in order to secure space or the lowest available fare, we will require an increase in deposit equal to the cost of the ticket(s).

Early enrolment is always encouraged as group size is limited and some trips require greater preparation time.

Once we have received your deposit, we will confirm your space and send you a confirmation package containing your trip itinerary, any visa/travel permit related documents, invoice, clothing and equipment recommendations, general information on your destination(s), and forms for you to complete, sign and return to us. Your air e-tickets (if applicable), final hotel list, final trip itinerary, and instructions on how to join your tour, will be sent approximately 2-3 weeks prior to departure.

+
+
What about cancellations, refunds, and transfers?

Should you need to cancel your trip, you must notify us in writing (e-mail preferred) immediately. Deposits are non-refundable, though if you cancel more than 90 days prior to tour departure date, the deposit is transferable to any other tour taken within 12 months of the original tour start date, minus a per person transfer fee (some tours have a 100% nonrefundable/ nontransferable deposit; you will be informed of this at the time of booking). Less than 90 days prior to departure, all monies paid are 100% non-refundable, nontransferable. Name changes are not permitted. We will not grant partial refunds for any unused trip arrangements—voluntarily missed meals, sightseeing, transport, etc—after the trip has commenced, or any refunds to trip members who do not complete any portion of the itinerary for whatever reason. All air tickets are non-refundable and valid only for the flight(s) indicated.

We may cancel departures if forced to do so by unforeseen circumstances such as war, civil unrest, disease outbreaks, catastrophic events such as hurricanes, earthquakes, and volcanic eruptions, etc -- things beyond our control that are commonly referred to as “force majeure.” In these instances we will offer 100% credits for all deposits if cancellation takes place more than 60 days prior to tour start date. Such credits can be applied to any future scheduled or custom tour (time limits may apply).

If cancellation occurs within the 60 day period, we will offer to postpone your trip to another departure of the same tour code within 12 months of the original tour start date and your full payment on the postponed tour will remain non-refundable; or, if circumstances do not permit at that time, an alternative will be offered.

Regardless of the timing of cancellation (outside or inside 60 days), we will not be responsible for costs associated with re-issuance or extension of visas, airline policies pertaining to cancellation/change fees, any trip component/s that may be non-refundable from our suppliers, or for any compensation. We strongly recommend that all travellers purchase trip cancellation insurance, either through Adventures Abroad or elsewhere, as this may provide coverage for the above listed circumstances and other perils.

If we cancel your tour due to insufficient enrolment, we will endeavour to find an alternative tour for you, either the same tour on a different date or another tour of your choice. If this is not acceptable, all monies paid will be refunded in full and will constitute full settlement. We will not be responsible for any expenses incurred, such as visas, vaccinations, independently purchase airfare, or any compensation. Notice of cancellation due to insufficient enrolment in any program will be given no later than 60 days prior to trip start date.

+
+
Do you have a shared accommodation program?

Yes! Most tours have a single-share program in which we match you with another single traveller of the same gender. If we are unable to pair you, we will usually absorb the cost of a single room. On some tours a "forced single" will apply; please enquire at time of booking. You will normally be informed of this charge 60 days prior to departure; however, we reserve the right to charge this fee up to your departure and, in rare cases, once you have departed. Upgrading to single room once the tour has begun is subject to availability in each overnight point, and payment must be made immediately to our office or locally to the Tour Leader. If you want to guarantee your own room, a single supplement applies. Payment of single supplement does not, however, guarantee that you will receive a twin size, twin-bedded room.

+
+
I am a single who prefers my own room. What is a single supplement?

All of our tours have a single supplement for those who want to be guaranteed their own room at each location.

This supplement is a reflection of the fact that most hotels around the world do not discount the regular twin-share rate for a room by 50% for only one person occupying a room. Most hotels will give a break on the price, but usually in the range of 25-30% of the twin-share rate. This difference, multiplied by each night, amounts to the single supplement.

The conventional amount can also vary from country to country and some destinations are more expensive than others for single occupancy. In order to be "single friendly," the supplements we apply are not a profit centre for us and we do our best to keep them as reasonable as possible.

On most tours we limit the number of singles available, not to be punitive, but rather because many hotels allow for only a limited number of singles; some smaller hotels at remote locations also have a limited number of single rooms available.

Please note that most single rooms around the world are smaller than twin-share rooms and will likely have only one bed.

Great tour. We most enjoyed the visit to St. Pierre & Miquelon. The transportation was excellent with lots of room for everyone. All the room accommodations were great. Our tour leader was very knowledgeable.

+
(White Rock, BC, 1)

We enjoyed everything. Our day excursions whether cultural or walking, were all excellent. We were most impressed with all of the local, provincial and federal information centres visited - the knowledgeability of the staff, the design of the buildings and the variety of artifacts on display. The best restaurants and accommodations were used. It was a wonderful two weeks, days and days of experiences to dwell on. The group was compatible and it all went too quickly. Wonderful, great holiday.

(Long Beach, CA, US)

This was a very good trip to out-of-the-way places. The variety of history and outdoors walking was good. Our tour leader was excellent. St John's was the highlight. Also totally enjoyed St Pierre-Michelon. The small town museums were wonderful.

+
(Toronto, ON, CA)

Great tour. I enjoyed all the sightseeing. It was well planned and appreciated the flexibility on some days considering the weather forecast. Our tour leader was perhaps the best tour director, used his teaching expertise,a master storyteller and very attentive to detail. Meals always met my expectations. Local guides were well informed.

+
(Mount Holly, NC, US)

Great tour. We enjoyed the geology, unique sites such as oldest grave in North America, and St Pierre et Miquelon was fabulous. The coach was very comfortable. Our tour leader was excellent and our local guide in St. John's was very knowledgeable and witty.

+
+
What is the maximum number of participants on a trip?

Most of our tours carry a maximum of 18 participants; some tours (ie hiking tours) top out at 16. In the event that we do not achieve our minimum complement by our 60-day deadline, we may offer group members the option of paying a "small-group surcharge" as an alternative to cancellation. If all group members agree, we will confirm the trip at existing numbers; this surcharge is refundable in the event that we ultimately achieve our regular minimum. If the small group surcharge is not accepted, we will offer a refund of your deposit or a different trip of your choice.

+
+
Can I extend my tour either at the beginning or end? What about stopovers?

Yes, you can extend your tour either at the beginning or the end and we can book accommodation in our tour hotel. Stopovers are often permitted, depending on air routing. Stopovers usually carry a "stopover" fee levied by the airline.

Full Itinerary


Day 1 Arrival Deer Lake / Corner Brook, Newfoundland
Today we arrive in Deer Lake (airport YDF) on Newfoundland's west coast.* Transfer to Corner Brook (45 min), Newfoundland's second largest city with a population of 30,000.

* LAND AND AIR passengers' transfers are included in their tour cost; LAND ONLY passengers are not entitled to arrival transfers (details included with your pre-trip info package).

Overnight in Corner Brook.

Included Meal(s): Dinner

Day 2 Corner Brook - Gros Morne National Park - Port au Choix
Today we set out by private motorcoach along the sheltered west coast of the Northern Peninsula, via Gros Morne National Park, a World Heritage Site. After a stop at the park's visitor center, we continue along the Viking Trail through the lands the Norsemen tamed and settled over 1,000 years ago, dotted with spectacular mountains and forests, rivers and lakes. We stop at Lobster Cove with its lighthouse and fascinating marine display. We also enjoy views of the famous Arches carved by eons of pounding waves.

The day ends with with a visit to the Port au Choix National Historic Site. Located on the Viking Trail, this site showcases a 4,500 year old time capsule of rare importance. While prehistoric coastlines have long since slipped beneath the encroaching ocean, the raised shoreline and alkaline soil conditions at the site have combined to preserve rich vestiges of the ancient Maritime Archaic Indian, Groswater Paleoeskimo, and Dorset Paleoeskimo First Nation cultures. Within the Visitor Centre are displayed original artifacts, interactive exhibits, a diorama of an archaeological site of a Dorset house, a topological model indicating the area's ancient beaches and a short film.

Overnight in Port au Choix.

Included Meal(s): Breakfast and Dinner

Day 3 Port au Choix - L'Anse aux Meadows - St Anthony
The highlight of our excursion north is a visit to L'Anse aux Meadows Historic Park, the oldest European settlement in North America, and World Heritage Site. Thought to be the elusive "Vineland" of Norse legends, the L'Anse aux Meadows site features overgrown mounds (excavated in the 1960's) which turned out to be the foundations of eight sod houses of the type the Vikings built in Iceland around AD 900. Evidence of ironwork and carbon-dated bone and turf place the settlement at about AD 1000. We tour the sod-house foundations with a local guide. Next is St Anthony, home of the Grenfell Mission. We visit the Interpretation Centre and browse the unique craft center.

Overnight in St Anthony.

Included Meal(s): Breakfast and Dinner

Day 4 St Anthony - Ferry to Blanc Sablon, Quebec - L'Anse au Clair, Labrador
Today we get a closer look at some of the earliest settlements in Canada. We ferry across the Strait of Belle Isle, known as Iceberg Alley, to the fishing village where Jacques Cartier first landed at Blanc Sablon, Quebec.

We then continue by road to Red Bay, Labrador, a community where one of the earliest industrial complexes in the New World – a Basque whaling station, which we visit – has been declared a National Historic Site. Archaeologists have discovered several shipwrecks from the period of 1550-1600 when this was the world whaling capital, supplying Europe with oil for lamps and soap. Archaeologists have also uncovered an astounding number of tools and personal effects that confirm European habitation of this coast during the 16th and 17th centuries. Many of these are now conserved in the Interpretation Centre. This is part of Labrador's famous Coastal Drive Route; modern-day explorers find a wild land dotted with a few coastal settlements inhabited mainly by the descendants of fisherman who began to settle here 200 years ago.

We finish our day back down in L'Anse au Clair, population 264, located 3 km from the Quebec/Labrador border in the Labrador Straits. This is the first established by French fishing interests in the early 1700s; the first permanent settlers were Jersey fishermen. Shortly after the Quebec-Labrador border dispute in 1825, Newfoundlanders and people from the south of England also began settling in L'Anse au Clair. The original name of the community was Anse St. Clair named after one of the first merchants to establish here whose last name was St. Clair. While here, we hope to visit the Gateway to Labrador Visitor Centre.

If skies are favourable this evening, you may see the Northern Lights.

Overnight in L'Anse au Clair.

Included Meal(s): Breakfast and Dinner

Day 5 L'Anse au Clair, Labrador - Rocky Harbour, Newfoundland
Today we ferry back across to Newfoundland and continue to Rocky Harbour, located on the t coast in the heart of Gros Morne National Park. Finds of arrowheads in the area indicate that the Micmac once inhabited the area. Then came the fishermen from England and France, some of whom eventually stayed all year round. Today this is the largest community in Gros Morne National Park and is centrally located for touring the World Heritage Site.

It took Mother Nature 485,000,000 years to mold Gros Morne National Park into the geological and visual wonder we know today. The second largest National Park in eastern Canada, Gros Morne is a UNESCO World Heritage Site stretching across 1805 square kilometres of western Newfoundland as part of the towering Long Range Mountains.

Encircled by tiny seaside communities, and encompassing forests, freshwater fjords, bogs, barren lowlands, moose, and striking cliffs and shorelines, this area is also world-renowned for its complex geology. It was here that geologists proved the theory of plate tectonics.

Overnight in Rocky Harbour.

Included Meal(s): Breakfast and Dinner

Day 6 Cow Head - Table Lands & Gros Morne - Grand Falls
This morning we visit the Table Lands in Gros Morne National Park, a mountain of flat-topped rock of a kind usually found only deep in the earth's mantle, is a truly awe-inspiring sight. We enjoy a scenic boat tour (weather-permitting) on which we learn the geology of the Tablelands, see the bald eagles that frequent the deep waters of the fjord, and hear the history of the small villages nestled on the shores. It is an unforgettable experience; some say the scenery is unequaled in eastern Canada.

Bidding goodbye to the "Viking Trail," we head south then east through open country dotted with lakes and patches of spruce and pine. Soon we are travelling along the Exploits River and through thick forest country to the town of Grand Falls.

In 1768, Lieutenant John Cartwright, while following the Exploits River, named the waterfall he found "Grand Falls"; however, it took until 1905 before the town of Grand Falls was established. Worried about the impending war in Europe, Alfred Harmsworth (Baron Northcliffe) began looking for an alternative source of newsprint for his family's newspaper and publishing business. During their search for a suitable location to build and operate a pulp and paper mill, he discovered Grand Falls. At that time, only employees of the mill and workers from private businesses were permitted to live in Grand Falls. Other people settled north of the railway in a shack town known as Grand Falls Station, which became Windsor, named for the English Royal Family. Today, Grand Falls-Windsor is central Newfoundland's major service and distribution centre with considerable mining and aquaculture activity in the region.

Overnight in Grand Falls.

Included Meal(s): Breakfast and Dinner

Day 7 Grand Falls & Twillingate
This morning we stop at the Salmonid Interpretation Centre to view one of North America's largest Atlantic salmon enhancement projects.

We continue to Twillingate, one of Newfoundland's oldest seaports, first settled in 1700 and now with a population of 5,000. Twillingate's location puts it in the path of icebergs drifting south from the Arctic. We visit the Twillingate Museum, with its collection of antiques gathered from the homes in the area. There is also time to shop for the fine knitted handicrafts produced locally.

We finish our day in Gander.

Overnight in Gander.

Included Meal(s): Breakfast and Dinner

Day 8 Gander - Salvage - Clarenville
We visit Terra Nova National Park on Bonavista Bay, with its tiny islands, rocky headlands and forested slopes; a brief stop at its visitors center. Along the "Road to the Isles" the local predilection for colourful language comes across with place names such as "Too Good Arm," "Virgin Arm," and "Crow Head." With luck, you might spot drifting icebergs and whales along the coast.

Then to Salvage, a friendly little village perched on the rocks around a picturesque harbour, perhaps the prettiest spot in Newfoundland. Fishermen's huts, silver-grey from sun and salt, stand at the end of jetties piled with lobster pots and fishing gear. Clapboard homes are dressed in a variety of colours.

We continue to Clarenville, gateway to the Discovery Trail, which extends down the Bonavista Peninsula to Trinity and Bonavista, reputed sight of the first landing of European explorer John Cabot. The trail is a panorama of scenery, historic sites, coastal towns and villages.

Overnight in Clarenville.

Included Meal(s): Breakfast and Dinner

Day 9 Clarenville & The Discovery Trail
Today, two of Newfoundland's most famous outports, beginning with the site of John Cabot's arrival. We drive to Cape Bonavista, where Cabot is believed to have first sighted the New World on June 24, 1497. Back down the rugged Bonavista Peninsula is Trinity, which was named by the Portuguese explorer Gaspar Corte Real when he sailed into the harbour on Trinity Sunday, 1500. We stroll Trinity's narrow, tree-lined streets, enjoying the beautifully-preserved historic buildings.

Overnight in Clarenville.

Included Meal(s): Breakfast and Dinner

Day 10 Clarenville - Marystown
Depart Clarenville this morning and head south onto the beautiful Burin Peninsula via the famous “Heritage Run” route. True to its name, the Heritage Run still rings loud with the echoes of colonial industry. The famous Grand Banks, was once a rich fishing ground and was the world’s “bread & butter” for centuries. While in Grand Bank, visit the Provincial Seamen’s Museum to learn about the province’s proud seafaring heritage.

Travel continues to the village of Fortune to check out the Fortune Head Geology Centre and the Fortune Head Ecological Reserve. Let the geology interpreters take you on a walk through geologic time, starting the tour off in our innovative and interactive exhibits! Once we finish viewing the collection of rocks, minerals, and fossils, it's time to hop in the van and drive out to the Fortune Head Ecological Reserve. See 41 million-year-old rocks contain internationally significant fossils that mark the beginning of increasing biological diversity on Earth.

Overnight in Marystown.

Included Meal(s): Breakfast and Dinner

Day 11 Marystown & The Burin Peninsula - Arnold's Cove
Today we travel along the bottom of the peninsula known as “The Boot” where views open up to panoramic coastlines. Arriving in St. Lawrence, we visit the Miner's Museum to learn about this town’s history of struggle and bravery. We walk the Trails of Valour to view the crystal blue waters that were the site of one of the worst American naval disasters in history and learn about the harrowing rescue that took place here in February 1942.

We continue along the coast to Burin, where you can stretch your legs on a coastal boardwalk and visit the Own’s heritage square. We finish our day in the pretty village of Arnold's Cove for dinner and overnight.

Overnight in Arnold's Cove.

Included Meal(s): Breakfast and Dinner

Day 12 Arnold's Cove - Baccalieu Coastal Drive - St John's
This morning we travel to Cupids to start a trip on the Baccalieu Coastal Drive, a place familiar with beginnings. It was the first permanent English settlement in all of Canada, dating back to 1610, a history that can be explored at the Cupids Cove Planation Provincial Historic Site and Cupids Legacy Centre. Neary Brigus is one of the prettiest towns in the province, the perfect place for a stroll amongst the colourful historic buildings, including Hawthorne Cottage National Historic Site, the home of famed explorer Captain Bob Bartlett. Our drive northward will continue to unveil this shore’s history at local museum and sites such as The Road to Yesterday Museum in Bay Roberts, the Spirit of Harbour Grace and Site of the S.S. Kyle, the Conception Bay Museum in Harbour Grace, and the Rorke Stores Museum in Carbonear (Note: it’s uncertain at this time what hours of operation may be for the 2021 season but the museums can be viewed if not able to gain entry to all).

Our day will end in St. John’s with a three-night stay in the capital.

Overnight in St John's.

Included Meal(s): Breakfast and Dinner

Day 13 St John's Area Touring
Today we enjoy a city tour of the historic sites of St. John’s, including Signal Hill, Cabot Tower, and the Basilica of St. John the Baptist. Lunch will be on your own in downtown St. John’s.

After the tour, we stop at the Quidi Vidi Brewery for a tasting. We continue to Bay Bulls for one of the highlights of your trip -- a bird watching boat tour on Witless Bay Ecological Reserve (weather-permitting). Witless Bay is alive with the rhythm of four million wings beating and of 40 tonne whales pulsing through clear blue water. The reserve contains North America's largest Atlantic puffin colony more than 260,000 pairs of the province's official bird nest here during the late spring and summer.

Overnight in St. John’s.

Included Meal(s): Breakfast and Dinner

Day 14 St John's Area Touring
Today we visit the Colony of Avalon, an amazing archaeological site and excellent museum featuring one of Newfoundland’s oldest European settlements dating back to 1621. Beyond the Colony’s archaeological site, you’ll see Ferryland Head, where you can find Lighthouse picnics (subject to availability), a unique experience – a gourmet picnic enjoyed on cliffs overlooking the rugged shore and open Atlantic Ocean.

Later we visit the most easterly point in North America, Cape Spear National Historic Site; the oldest surviving lighthouse in Newfoundland is located at the most easterly point of land in North America. It has been restored to its 1839 appearance and shows how a lightkeeper and his family might have lived in the mid-19th century.

This evening we have our farewell dinner back in the city.

Seasonality and Weather

This trip is planned for mid-late summer, when weather is at it's most stable and least stormy/rainy.

Transport and Travel Conditions

We will have a private touring coach for most of our journey. We will have some full days of travel with plenty of stops for sightseeing and refreshment. Local ferry crossings are scenic and relatively short.

This tour is not strenuous per se, but one must be prepared for some early starts, long (but scenic) travelling days, and walking tours on uneven surfaces.

Accommodation

All hotels and inns used on this trip will be a mid-range standard (3-star), with private bath.

Our St John's hotel will be well-located and of an international standard.

Please note that porters will be available only in St John's (you will need to be independent with your baggage).

A mandatory single supplement may apply to this tour if you have selected our share program and we fail to pair you.
