Remote Newfoundland & Labrador

Jun 09-19, 2022

11 days | Canada | Alumni Tours

This tour is presented by the alumni associations of the University of Alberta, the University of Saskatchewan, Western University, McMaster University, McGill University, and York University. All are welcome!
 
There are places in Canada that continue to live inside of you long after you’ve travelled onwards. Newfoundland’s Great Northern Peninsula and Labrador are two of these destinations. Join Canadian university alumni to explore places you’ve always dreamed of: Gros Morne; Battle Harbour; Red Bay; and L’Anse aux Meadows. Iceberg viewing, whale watching, ferry crossings, small boat cruising, hiking and walking, and exploring living heritage are all part of this experience.

This is one of the best places to see and appreciate nature in all its glory with dramatic coastlines, sweeping barrens, thick boreal forest, and ancient rock formations. Walk on the Earth’s mantle at the Tablelands and cruise the fjords in Gros Morne National Park. It’s also where we imbibe the rich maritime tradition; touch the soul of Labrador’s fishing heritage at Battle Harbour and learn about Basque whaling history at Red Bay. Medieval history is all around us as we explore the only known Norse outpost in North America at L’Anse aux Meadows.

Ocean-front accommodation puts you right in front of spectacular views. Enjoy two-night stays in two exceptional heritage properties; the Battle Harbour Historic site and the Quirpon Lighthouse Inn.

Contrasting the splendidly rugged geography is the warmth of a very special culture and tradition; rainbow-painted houses; a cuisine of cod tongue and crowberry pie; fiddles and song.
