Newfoundland Coastal Hiking Relaxed

  • Journey to the far reaches of Canada: the rugged isle of Newfoundland
  • Visit colorful fishing villages steeped in rich maritime history and traditions
  • Hike the acclaimed Skerwink Trail for seastack views and iceberg sightings
  • Relax at indulgent and superior inns and hotels
  • Explore the coves and coastlines of the Avalon and Bonavista Peninsulas
This Drive & Hike tour in Newfoundland, known affectionately as “the rock”, sits so far east in the Atlantic that its time zone is half an hour earlier than Eastern Time. However, you’ll feel more like you’ve stepped back in time a century as you explore the charming fishing villages, visit the iconic lighthouses, and hike the winding paths of this island. From the tiny harbor of Quidi Vidi to the vibrant streets of St. John’s, the province’s capital city, immerse yourself in the local culture, food, and music. Spend your days on short hikes showcasing the highlights of the Avalon and Bonavista peninsulas, where coastal walks offer the opportunity to spot icebergs, whales, and puffins. The hamlets of this peninsula will make history come alive; but even if you don’t believe in time travel, perhaps after a week in Newfoundland you’ll be a believer in magic.
