Seasonality and Weather
This trip is planned for mid-late summer, when weather is at it's most stable and least stormy/rainy. That said, this entire region features some of the most unpredictable and changeable conditions on Earth; one must be prepared for rapid changes in temperature -- sometimes all four seasons in one day!
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. You will also have to be independent with your luggage as porters are not generally available for ferries and airports and at hotels outside of St John's.
PLEASE NOTE - As we visit French territory on this (Ste-Pierre), non-Canadian travellers must have a valid passport for entry into France. Canadians currently don't need a passport, however we suggest that you bring it just in case requirements change at short notice.
Am I suitable for this tour? Please refer to our self-assessment form.
All hotels and inns used on this trip will be a mid-range standard (2-3-star), with private bath. Due to the isolated nature of some locales, and because there is not a lot of tourist traffic in some places covered, some hotels may be of a simpler standard. 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.
DAY ONE: Why we stay in Corner Brook and not Deer Lake: If you look at a map, it might seem illogical to spend this night in Corner Brook only to backtrack past Deer Lake the following day. The limited number of hotels in Deer Lake are accustomed to individual travellers booking stays directly and are not geared for groups, applying rigid booking terms that make holding space for our travellers difficult for us. Our chosen hotel in Corner Brook is a "nice" property with some charm and character and a great in-house restaurant, as opposed to a typical airport hotel one would find in Deer Lake. As always we look forward to your feedback.
Staff and Support
Full-time, locally-based expert trip leader plus local step-on guides for a day or half day at several locations. We will have one main coach driver,
Maximum 18 plus Tour Leader
