Expand All

Day 1: Saint-Pierre, France | Embark

Just off the shores of Newfoundland lie the islands of Saint-Pierre and Miquelon, an official territory of the French Republic.

Admire the colorful and charming shops and the town’s unique historical character before you board the Ocean Endeavour for an evening departure.

Day 2-3: Newfoundland's South Coast

Journey through the beautiful and windswept coast of southern Newfoundland, dotted with bays, coves, and a few remaining remote outport communities.

Admire outstanding geology and gorgeous botanical life.

Spot an abundance of birds, whales, and other wildlife as you make the most of every opportunity for Zodiac cruises and land excursions.

A visit here is sure to be one of the many highlights of your trip!

Day 4: Gros Morne National Park | Woody Point

Stretch your legs with a walk or hike at Gros Morne National Park.

Soak in the extraordinary views of beautiful Bonne Bay, and be sure to take time to explore the park’s excellent interpretation center and the town of Woody Point.

Witness for yourself the spectacular Tablelands, a six-hundred-meter plateau that forms one of the world’s best examples of exposed mantle.

Normally found below the Earth’s crust, the mineral-rich rocks support very little life, making the Tablelands an eerie landscape.

Day 5: Battle Harbour

Experience the rugged beauty and fascinating history of Battle Harbour, Newfoundland and Labrador's hidden gem! This restored 19th-century fishing village is located on a small island in the Labrador Sea and was once the salt fish capital of the world.

Step back in time and immerse yourself in the village's rich history as you explore the National Historic District, where the village has been lovingly restored to its original state. Walk in the footsteps of traditional fishermen and merchants and experience life as it was in the 1800s.

Day 6: Labrador Coast

Wander the southern Labrador coast, where you can find a diverse geography of coastal barrens, high subarctic tundra, high boreal forest, mid-boreal forest, string bog, and islands.

Look for opportunities for an exciting Zodiac cruise or hike whenever possible during expedition landings in this beautiful and serene region.

Day 7: Nain

Visit thriving Nain, the most northerly community in Labrador and the administrative capital of Nunatsiavut.

Stop in at the historic Moravian church and learn about its history, listen to the brass band, and visit Illusuak—the stunning new cultural center by the waterfront in Nain. The cultural center showcases the history, language, and culture of the Inuit of Labrador and is a community gathering place.

Expect a warm welcome and the opportunity to peruse plenty of arts and handicrafts during this dynamic visit.

Many of the expedition team members call Nain home. You can have the opportunity to explore their community through walking tours and scenic hikes as you create meaningful cultural connections.

Day 8: Hebron

Step back in time to the historical site of Hebron, which preserves a Moravian mission station dating from the 1830s.

Call in at the old church, which is where the Inuit who resided here in 1959 learned they would be forced to relocate.

Take a moment to read the plaque that commemorates this history and the apology to people affected by the relocations issued by the government of Newfoundland and Labrador in 2005.

Listen to the stories shared by the guides and meet former Hebron residents and their kin, who continue to visit the site to hunt and fish nearby.

Day 9-12: Torngat Mountains National Park

Spend four days exploring an area of treeless, mountainous tundra in Torngat Mountains National Park, where some of Canada’s highest peaks east of the Rockies are found.

Enjoy your time hiking, visiting archaeological sites, and zodiac cruising. Here, the Inuit of Nunatsiavut will be your guides in their spiritual homeland.

The Inuit of Nunavik and Nunatsiavut play a key role as partners in the management of Torngat Mountains National Park.

Many see the park as a portal for a better understanding of Inuit culture. The word Torngat is derived from the Inuttut word tongait, meaning "place of spirits," where Inuit shamans traveled to connect with higher powers. It is not hard, even for a visitor, to feel the power of the place.

Also be on the lookout for marine mammals, polar and black bears, caribou, falcons, and eagles.

Day 13-14: Hudson Strait | Frobisher Bay

Sail through this beautiful bay named for bygone explorer Martin Frobisher and stay on the lookout for wildlife, such as polar bears, seabirds, walruses, and different species of whales and seals.

The geologists will have you raving about rocks! Expect compelling scenery and soak up the Arctic splendor.

Day 15: Iqaluit, NU, Canada | Disembark

  • 1 Breakfast
Iqaluit, at the head of Frobisher Bay, is Nunavut’s capital. A population of nearly 8,000 residents calls the city home. Local attractions include the territorial legislature, the igloo-inspired St. Jude’s Cathedral, art shops, and more.

Transfer from the Ocean Endeavour by Zodiac through the Iqaluit harbor for your charter flight to Ottawa, ON.

This was my first experience with Adventure Life - and I couldn't have been more pleased with the trip. The guides and local staff in both Buenos Aires and Uruguay were terrific - extremely helpful and accommodating. I really enjoyed meeting the friendly staff in Buenos Aires in person (I left my bags with them for the afternoon).
