Tours highlight Newfoundland and Labrador
Combining famous friendliness, jaw-dropping scenery and memorable seafood meals, there’s a “new” darling on the Canadian tourism scene: Newfoundland and Labrador.
And what better way to explore this vast and remarkable province than in the company of new friends? Globus, a world leader in escorted tours, has two memorable itineraries to Newfoundland and Labrador. Each gives you a wonderful flavour of our easternmost province, from the stunning coastline scenery and wildlife to the welcome of small towns and, of course, that famous toe-tapping music!
You’ll travel on Globus’ state-of-the-art, Wi-Fi-equipped motorcoaches in the company of a fun and informative Tour Director, plus driver. Included is not only accommodation and many meals but also Globus’ signature Local Favorites: insightful cultural and culinary treats.
The Colorful Newfoundland itinerary is brand new this year. This weeklong tour concentrates on the eastern part of Newfoundland and takes you to St. John’s, along the famed Irish Loop road, to the stark beauty of the tiny town of Trinity, the Avalon Peninsula and the hamlets of Heart’s Delight, Heart’s Desire and Heart’s Content. And as no visit to “The Rock” would be complete without viewing hundreds of puffins and seabirds and – if Mother Nature is on our side – humpback whales. End the trip with a visit to Cape Spear, the easternmost point in North America.
Globus has also brought back its Newfoundland & Labrador tour for 2018, a 12 day exploration encompassing a rare opportunity to go to the Labrador on Canada’s mainland and experience the remote beauty. You’ll visit Corner Brook on the west coast of Newfoundland and the breathtaking fiords and seascapes of the Northern Peninsula. Experience the beauty of famed Gros Morne National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage site and travel to L’Anse aux Meadows, the only known Viking settlement in North America. Cross “Iceberg Alley” – the Strait of Belle Isle - to Labrador and visit the remains of a Basque whaling station before overnighting in the small community of L’Anse-au-Clair. On your return to Newfoundland you’ll experience towns such as Twillingate, Gander, the village of Trinity and of course St. John’s where you spend two nights.
“Whether it’s been the 2017 celebrations of Canada 150 or the surprise success of the Broadway hit Come From Away, which is set in Newfoundland, we’ve seen an explosion of interest in our tours to Newfoundland and Labrador,” says Stéphanie Bishop, managing director for the Globus in Canada. “Each year we add more departures and they always sell out – clearly Canadians are loving the downhome warmth of Newfoundland and Labrador!”
Even better, when you book any Globus Newfoundland and Labrador tour between January 1 and March 31, 2018 with our agency you’ll save 5 per cent off the regular price – plus an additional $75 as a Travel Club member. That’s an offer almost as appealing as the hospitality you’re sure to experience!
