Revel in wild landscapes, maritime culture & Viking history
Embark on a rare expedition and join an exceptional community aboard National Geographic Explorer on a circumnavigation of the island of Newfoundland that includes an exploration of outlying islands in the Canadian Maritimes.
Immerse yourself in the region’s extraordinary historyVenture into the ancient Viking settlement of L’Anse aux Meadows, the only widely accepted site of trans-Atlantic Viking establishment and very early Norse exploration. See WWII harbor defenses, and visit the only North American island that remains under French control, an outpost of its era as a colonial superpower.
Revel in wild landscapesDiscover sweeping dunes, wind- and wave-carved cliffs, and sandstone hills in a wild land. Keep an eye out for moose, see birds, including charming puffins, and rely on our eagle-eyed naturalists to keep an eye on the horizon for whales.
Discover Gros Morne National ParkExplore the intriguing red cliffs and strange tabletop formations at Gros Morne National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage site. We’ll walk one portion of the reserve in the morning with our geologist, and then reposition Explorer over lunch to hike the tabletop formation. This site is one of the few in the world where the same rock at the Earth’s core is visible at the surface, and it has recently become the focus of NASA research since findings from the Mars rover have uncovered very similar features.
