Holiday Overview

Newfoundland and Labrador Fly Drive Adventures

Canada’s most eastern province celebrates European and First Nations histories amidst a diverse landscape of coastlines, mountains and ancient forests. This excellent introduction to Newfoundland and Labrador begins and ends on the island in the modern gateway city of St. John’s – a city in dynamic contrast to the colonial ports and fishing villages along the northern shores.

Journeying along the coastlines of Labrador display some of the most rugged and raw meetings of ocean and shore in Canada, perfectly complemented by visits to the immaculate North Shore, Gros Morne National Park and the incredible experience of seeing icebergs and whales up close. This itinerary is ideal to be enjoyed either as a casual, stop-and-visit package, or as a base to incorporate signature hikes and other outdoor adventures.

Newfoundland and Labrador Adventures includes:

  • Return flights from the UK
  • 13 nights accommodation
  • Car Hire
  • Return Ferry- St Barbe To Blanc Sablon
  • Admission to Gros Morne National Park
  • 2-hour Iceberg Quest Whale, Iceberg and Boat Tour
