You'll also have time to enjoy Newfoundland's fascinating museums, remote lighthouses, walking trails, wildflowers and local lifestyles on this comprehensive introduction to Canada's easternmost province.

Day 5 Trinity/Bonavista

Examine Newfoundland's marine ecology with a morning boat trip – you may encounter whales, bald eagles and icebergs - giant chunks of 15,000 year old Greenland glaciers. Spend the remainder of the day experiencing what makes this area so special — moose, osprey, orchids, shore-birds, song birds, and much more. Bird watching, iceberg spotting, flower walks, beachcombing, sea kayaking, land-based whale watching, photographing the local architecture, and hands-on marine biology programs are all possibilities this afternoon. Or spend some time independently exploring the beautiful and historic community of Trinity.
