Take part in the ultimate Atlantic-Coast hiking adventure in one of Canada’s most fascinating and hospitable provinces -- Newfoundland and Labrador.
The East Coast Trail is a series of 26 wilderness paths totalling over 300 km (190 mi) along the Avalon Peninsula, ranked the world's top coastal destination in 2016 by National Geographic! Enjoy ocean splendours from the shore while traversing towering cliffs and headlands, sea stacks, and coves. Along the way, enjoy picturesque bay-side communities, historic sites, and ecological reserves. Our guided adventure allows for a taste of the trail, sampling some of our favourite sections in less than a week.
Visit picturesque Quidi Vidi and Signal Hill, hike to dramatic sea arches, enjoy Cape Spear Path at the most easterly point of the continent, and step back in time as we tour the historic Colony of Avalon in Ferryland. Keep an eye on the sea for whales and icebergs (in season) and along the trail for nesting bald eagles and wandering moose! Take in the history and culture of small fishing towns, including some of the very first harbours in North America to be frequented by Europeans.
Max 14 participants. We recommend that you register on this site by April 30 to secure your spot.
