The rugged shores of Newfoundland’s Southwest coast have changed little since the first Europeans arrived over five hundred years ago. Deep fjords with abrupt, barren, walls alternate with the coastal islands to provide a captivating land/seascape. The rugged interior offers splendid hiking opportunities where we may encounter moose and woodland caribou – and the most glorious wilderness campsites in Atlantic Canada. We will encounter few other travellers along this remote coastline. On the last day of the tour we will return to our departure point via the coastal supply boat.

This trip is run in cooperation with our friends at Coastal Adventures.
