The charm of Newfoundland meets the splendor of Labrador on this 13-day voyage! Beginning on the French island of Saint Pierre, journey through Newfoundland history, exploring French, Basque, and Viking influences. In Labrador, visit the Inuit homeland, Nunatsiavut, as you follow the trail of the explorers northward along Canada's wild East coast. All along the way icebergs, whales, polar bears, and seals will have you scanning the horizon!

Day 1

    Embark in Sainte Pierre, France

    Arrive in Saint Pierre. The island is not merely an obscure outpost of the former French empire it is home to a contemporary French community, complete with cafes, high fashion shopping, fine wines and cheeses. Embark the Ocean Endeavour today and settle in to your cabin before setting sail.

    Day 2

      Newfoundland's South Coast

      The wild and windswept coast of Southern Newfoundland is home to a few remaining outpost communities, still largely cut off from mainstream travel. Visits here are often a highlight of our trips. There are many unique bays and coves to explore via Zodiac or land excursion.

      Day 3

        Gros Morne National Park

        It has been said that "Gros Morne is to geology what the Galapagos are to biology." The Park's mountains are both picturesque, and highly unusual: the Tablelands, a 600m (1900 ft) plateau, forms one of the world's best examples of exposed ancient rock from the earth's interior. The Park's fiords are equally stunning, and the town of Woody Point has become widely renowned for its annual Writers' Festival.

        Day 4

          Red Bay

          The fishing village at Red Bay, Labrador is Canada’s most recent UNESCO World Heritage Site. Saddle Island was once the site of several Basque whaling stations, occupied between 1550 and the early 1600s. Amazing artifacts from a Basque shipwreck abound in the superb interpretive center here.

          Day 5

            St. Anthony & L'Anse aux Meadows

            A UNESCO World Heritage Site, L'Anse Aux Meadows is the only authenticated Norse settlement in North America. The archeological remains found here in 1960 date to approximately 1000 A.D. Today a superb interpretive center and reconstructions of the several Norse-style sod buildings make L'Anse Aux Meadows a must-see for any visitor to Newfoundland.

            Day 6

              Wonderstrands, Mealy Mountains

              When you think of Labrador, beaches may not be the first thing to come to mind - but it was for the Vikings. Two long trackless crescents of sand, washed by the cold Labrador sea, backed by the Mealy Mountains were given the name “Wunderstrand” by the Norse seafarers, and earned a place in their Sagas. Hunted, traveled, and occupied over thousands of years by various peoples, Wonderstrands is still largely unknown and rarely visited by non-Labradorians.

              Day 7

                Nain

                Explore this Inuit community, especially the Moravian Church and the Nunatsiavut Building with its labradorite stone. Share in the fascinating history of the township, wander the roads or check out the new homes being constructed.

                Day 8

                  Hebron

                  Long-abandoned Hebron was once one of the most northerly communities on the north Labrador coast. A Moravian Mission station was constructed here from 1829 to 1831 but in a highly controversial move, the station was abandoned in 1959, forcing the relocation of the Inuit who resided there. In August of 2009, the provincial government unveiled a monument at the site of Hebron with an inscribed apology for the site closure. Visit this site of Canadian First Nation history.

                  Days 9-11

                    Torngat Mountains National Park

                    The Torngat Mountains have been home to Inuit peoples and their predecessors for millennia, with archaeological evidence reaching back almost 7,000 years. The fjords here reach deep into the heart of the Torngats and are bounded by striking cliffs. Polar bears, caribou, falcons and eagles are among the species hardy enough to make their homes here.

                    Day 12

                      Kangiqsualujjuaq (George River)

                      In the shelter of a commanding granite rock outcrop is the easternmost community of Kangiqsualujjuaq, or George River. Twenty-five kilometers upstream from Ungava Bay, the ebb and flow of the tides define the summer life in this area. Arctic flora thrives in the protected valley. After your welcome back to Canada, enjoy some free time to explore the community, meet with locals and strike out of town for a hike on the tundra.

                      Day 13

                        Disembark in Kuujjuaq, QC

                        Disembark in Kuujjuaq (formerly known as Fort Chimo), located on the shore of the Koksoak River in the Nunavik region of Northern Quebec. Transfer to the airport to continue your homeward journey.
