  Newfoundland – In the pursuit of Icebergs & National Park Beauty

 “Come from Away inspired Tour - visits the communities involved with this outpouring of generosity”

This tour is designed by Susanne Hamilton, (one of the owners of Hamilton Tours Ltd)  and she will be your personal Tour Director as well.  The tour travels from St. John’s to Gander and then onto Gros Morne National Park, flying home from Deer Lake.  

Tentative Itinerary:

Day 1: Sat., June 23 - The tour will depart in the early morning from Orillia, Barrie, Bayfield Mall behind Canadian Tire Store and the Tour Office for our shuttle to Pearson International Airport.  Parking is available at our Tour Office located at 3479 Hwy 88, Bradford. 

A shuttle van service is available with a minimum of 6 customers in Collingwood, Wasaga Beach & Elmvale upon request and transferred to meet the coach in Barrie.  We will fly on Air Canada from Toronto to St. John’s, the capital city of Newfoundland for a 3-night stay at the Capital Hotel.   A Welcome Dinner awaits our arrival. This evening there is free time to experience “George Street” that is made up of only pubs and bars. You might wish to enjoy some Newfoundland music and entertainment in downtown St. John’s.  (Dinner)

Day 2: Sun., June 24 - This morning we will have a guided city tour of St. John’s, which will include Signal Hill & Cape Spear National Historic Site, the most easterly point in North America. This afternoon we will visit Petty Harbour, a traditional Irish Newfound­land fishing community enroute to Bay Bulls. We’ll enjoy the 2 hour Gatherall’s Whale watching boat cruise which includes viewing the Witless Bay Ecological Reserve, home to hundreds of puffins. (Breakfast)

Today’s activities include: a visit to the Twillingate Museum dedicated to Georgia Stirling, St. Peter’s Anglican Church, Long Point Lighthouse & the Boyd Cove Beothuk Museum. This evening we will return to Gander for a group dinner and hopefully a chance to meet Claude Elliott – the newly retired Mayor of Gander, that you will see portrayed in “Come from Away”.  Our guest speaker is yet to be confirmed. It is hoped that if Claude is available that we can have a “fireside chat” and learn first-hand about the events and efforts of the incredible people during the week that began on September 11.   (B, L & D)

Day 6: Thurs., June 28 - Following breakfast we will travel to Appleton and Glenwood with a stop at the Peace Keeper’s Park.  Then we are off to Lewisport for Lunch.  These 3 communities were all instrumental in their support of 9/11.  Today may become your favourite day of the tour as we travel to Gros Morne National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
