  Newfoundland & Labrador – 14 day tour
A Unique tour by Land, Sea & Air…. Let us take you “Off the Beaten Path”

The province of Newfoundland and Labrador is almost one-and-three-quarter times the size of the country of Great Britain, as large as Japan, and more than three times the size of the Maritime Provinces combined. In fact, if Newfoundland and Labrador was one of the United States, it would rank fourth in size behind Alaska, Texas and California.  The province covers more than 400, 000 square kilometres of land ranging from barren rock to lush farmland, forests, mountains and fjords.
Join me for this personally guided tour and you will discover why I refer to Newfoundland and Labrador, as my “home away from home”. I love being near the sea.  The landscape is both rugged and beautiful. The people are genuine. Their love of music, pride in their culture and sense of community will stay with you long after you return home. 
Our tour is unique for several reasons:

  • Personal service from the moment we depart, until we return to Pearson International 14 days later
  • Experience - I have been tour guiding in Newfoundland since 2003 and truly love this destination
  • Smaller group numbers – capped at 34 passengers maximum
  • 4 days in Labrador including a 2 night stay on Battle Harbour Island
  • 3 UNESCO World Heritage Sites including Gros Morne National Park
  • Anchors Aweigh Musical Performance during our 2 night stay  in Rocky Harbour
  • Majority of 2 night stays throughout the tour  
  • direct flights including prepaid baggage and airport transfer by motor coach
  •  Motor coach transportation & driver are provided by Parsons & Sons from Seal Cove, Newfoundland Regards, Susanne Hamilton
