Newfoundland & Labrador

24 day road trip | June 2020

A road trip through the rugged landscapes of Atlantic Canada features high on the bucket list of these two seasoned travelers. When you add Labrador as a far-flung destination, encounters with local people are rewarding while the natural side is even more spectacular!
June = iceberg time, one of the reasons why we suggested an earlier start.

By request, the trip starts and ends in Halifax, Nova Scotia, with a domestic flight connecting Halifax and St John’s towards the end of the trip.
