Labrador & Newfoundland
Gros Morne in Newfoundland, is a UNESCO World Heritage site and its extraordinary geological features are admired internationally, while the remote Torngat Mountains National Park boasts the tallest mountains east of the Rockies that tower off the Labrador coastline, creating deep & convoluted fjords that only a nimble expedition ship can access.
This voyage includes a fascinating cultural aspect offering the chance to learn about the Newfoundland history, exploring French, Basque and Viking influences. Labrador and Nunatsiavut are also full of history and culture as they are the homelands of the captivating Inuit people.
While the wildlife is never guaranteed, the breeding and nesting seabirds can be seen in abundance, and the potential sighting of whales, polar bears and seals will keep you scanning the icebergs and horizon daily. Additional Arctic wildlife frequently seen includes humpback whale, minke whale, reindeer, black bear, moose and birds of prey including osprey and eagle.
