Day 1

    St. John's, Newfoundland

    Meet in St. John's, Newfoundland's historic, vibrant capital. Picturesque and welcoming, it has been continuously fished since 1498, allowing it to boast the designation of North America's oldest European settlement. Join the Clipper Adventurer here.

    Day 2


      Explore Bonavista Bay by first discovering Canada's easternmost national park. Terra Nova National Park was established in 1957, and provides 400 square kilometers of pristine natural habitat to salmon, bear, moose, lynx and bald eagles. Rolling hills and sheltered inlets have supported human existence since the days of the Beothuk and early European settlers. Today, the park's rugged coastlines and densely forested hills attract visitors from all over the world.

      Day 3

        L'Anse aux Meadows

        L'Anse aux Meadows, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is the only authenticated Viking settlement in North America. Located at the tip of Newfoundland's Great Northern Peninsula, it is widely regarded as one of the most important archaeological sites globally.

        Day 4

          Red Bay & L'Anse Amour

          Red Bay is a fishing village and former site of several Basque whaling stations occupied between 1550 and the early 1600s when they hunted right and bowhead whales. The remains of three Basque whaling galleons and four small chalupas haunt the depths of the waters in this area, making it an important archaeological site and earning it a UNESCO nomination.

          L'Anse Amour is an important archaeological site, located on the Strait of Belle Isle coast was occupied between at least 5500 and 2000 BC by the Maritime Archaic people who used the area for fishing and hunting harp seals and walrus. The site contains the oldest burial mound found in North America to this day at about 7500 years old. The skeleton of an adolescent child was found underneath, his body was covered with red ochre and accompanied by several stone and bone spearpoints and knives, a walrus tusk, a harpoon head, an ivory carving and a bone whistle. The importance of L'Anse Amour Burial was recognized in 1978, when it was made a National Historic Site.

          Day 5

            Gros Morne National Park

            It has been said, "Gros Morne is to geology what the Galapagos are to biology." Spectacular scenery including Precambrian cliffs, deep inland fjords and volcanic "pillow" rocks formed as lava cooled underwater- is just one of the reasons we stop here year after year. Highlights on this day include time spent exploring the Tablelands, a 600m (1900 ft) high plateau that forms one of the world's best examples of ancient rock exposed from the earth's interior, and exploring the fjord by ship.

            Day 6

              Cape St. George

              The small, picturesque community of Cape St. George is located at the westernmost tip of the Port au Port Peninsula and serves as an unspoiuled slice of Newfoundland life surrounded by mountains and ocean.

              Days 7-8

                Garria Bay, Francois & Ramea

                The last of the true outport communities are found here, and you will visit two of them. First, visit the tiny village of Francois. Dramatic rock strewn cliffs surround the village, a delicate waterfall runs through the center of town and there is a short hike to a picturesque pond overlooking the community. Thirty miles away by ship is the neighboring community of Ramea. Though fewer in number now than at the peak of the cod fishery, the friendly residents of Ramea are no less hospitable. Tonight you are treated to music by the local band at an authentic Newfoundland 'Kitchen Party.'

                Day 9

                  Arran Cove and Conne River / Miawpukek

                  A visit to Miawpukek (Conne River) will reveal a First Nation's community that has the mandate of turning the community into an economically self-sufficient community guided by traditional values. Miawpukek became a permanent community sometime around 1822. Before 1822 it was one of many semi-permanent camping sites used by the Mi'kmaw people who were at the time still nomadic and travelling throughout the east coast.

                  Day 10

                    Miquelon, France

                    On the northern side of the larger island, the village of Miquelon is inhabited by 600 people, mostly of Basque and Acadian ancestry. Wildlife is most abundant on this island and its couterpart to the south, the island of Langlade. The 8 mile sand dune between the two islands is peppered with over 500 shipwrecks.

                    Day 11

                      St. John's, Newfoundland

                      Discover one of the oldest cities in North America, a city unlike any other. Cradled in a harbour carved from 500 million year old rock and surrounded by hills running down to the ocean, St. John's is the most easterly point in North America. St. John's has been vitally important for centuries to explorers, adventurers, merchants, soldiers, pirates, and all manner of seafarers, who provided the foundation for this thriving modern day city. It is a lively metropolis with a vibrant art community and is home to many galleries, theatres and museums. The colorful streets and attractive waterfront, brimming with cafes, restaurants and boutiques, do not disappoint. Connect to the airport for your independent flights home.
