Hike the Rock
For those who like salty air in their lungs and the east coast’s best underfoot, tramp over “The Rock” where the wilderness grows as deep as the creases on friendly faces.
Get close to nature on the John Hogan Trail. The boardwalk skirts Torrent River where migrating salmon leap and a waterfall makes it a gorgeous 3km trek! Pretty Port au Choix peninsula is the trailhead for a 7km coastal walk along the Dorset and Point Riche Trails. The gravel path to Crow Head Lookout is fringed with tuckamore and the stairs up the limestone cliffs provide panoramic ocean views.
Vikings stepped off longboats in Newfoundland over 1,000 years ago. Visit L’Anse aux Meadows National Historic Site, North America’s oldest settlement. See a replica Viking ship at the Norstead Viking Village living history museum and hike the fabulous lookout trail before stopping at the Dark Tickle – be sure to pick up partridgeberry jam!
Travel & Leisure magazine gave the 5km Skerwink coastal loop top honours. 5kms of icebergs, seabirds, whales, and sea stacks offer more scenery per linear foot than any other trail in Newfoundland! So join us and explore the nooks and crannies of Newfoundland’s craggy shores!
Walk on the wild side
Untamed and ruggedly beautiful, Gros Morne spoils outdoor enthusiasts! From the Gulf of St. Lawrence Lowlands to the Long Range Mountains, “The Great Sombre” offers unmatched beauty. Boreal forest, bogs, arctic landscapes, waterfalls, cliffs, and glacial fjords cram inside the park.
Traverse unusual geography beside blue water that buries shipwrecks and scuttles icebergs down its coast. A guided hike through the ancient Tablelands takes us through a unique bouldered landscape. Bronze peridotite and green serpentine rock from deep within the earth (thrust to the surface thanks to tectonics), makes this flat-topped barren massif an odd beauty and a geological blueprint of the earth.
At Western Brook Pond, we’ll follow a boardwalk trail and see the majesty of this landlocked fjord carved by glaciers. Billion-year-old cliffs and 2,000-foot-high waterfalls are the rewards. Look for the colony of cliff-nesting gulls as well as salmon, trout, and arctic char.

These destinations offer very limited accessibility and guests can expect to experience uneven surfaces (i.e. cobblestones) or hilly ground on a regular basis. This level applies to many of our overseas tours as many historical landmarks tend to demand greater effort to reach. This also applies to our Newfoundland tours as accessibility options are scarce in some remote areas.
