Torngat Mountains National Park - Basecamp

There are places on this earth that continue to live on inside of you, long after you’ve gone. Where the stories, tales, and traditions are filled with old-world charm, and coloured by Irish, English, French, and Aboriginal influences. And where the legendary culture has a way of seeping in under your skin. There’s no better way to soak it all up than through authentic encounters and hands-on learning experiences – the kind that leads to a true understanding of the living, breathing culture and traditions that exist in every corner of Newfoundland and Labrador.

The Irish Loop is a great place to start. Perched on a gentle slope by the sea, the Ferryland Lighthouse is just a 25-minute walk from the Colony of Avalon. Inside the restored 1870 icon, you’ll find the cheerful kitchen of Lighthouse Picnics in full swing, preparing made-to-order gourmet nosh and freshly squeezed lemonade. All you have to do is pick a spot outside, kick back, and enjoy dining al fresco in a truly inspired setting. They even deliver the delicious goods right to your blanket, so you can keep your eye on the whales below.

For a truly off the beaten path experience, head to the Torngat Mountains in northern Labrador. This national park is generously equipped with spectacular wilderness where Inuit hunt, fish and travel – just as aboriginal peoples have for thousands of years. Join a local guide on an Inuit harvesting trip to gather food for the Torngat Mountains Base Camp. Or take an overnight trip into spectacular fjords where their ancestors have camped and walked before. Hear ancient stories and legends as you enjoy a hot meal prepared over an open fire. Live and interact with researchers and, under certain conditions, accompany them in the field.

At the northern tip of Newfoundland, you’ll find a remote island oasis on the shores of Iceberg Alley where the long, leisurely iceberg season can last well into late summer. Quirpon Lighthouse Inn (pronounced like harpoon) offers the unique experience of an authentic lightkeeper’s home built in 1922. Catch a glimpse of icebergs, killer whales, and humpbacks – all regular visitors – from their indoor viewing station or from the seat of a kayak. Relax under a blanket of Northern Lights, and fall asleep to the lulling sounds of the ocean in the fully restored lighthouse inn.

If spontaneous encounters are an important part of your travels, then CapeRace Cultural Adventures is for you. Specializing in upbeat self-guided travel experiences, CapeRace initiates real connections to the local community and sends you off on an authentic adventure of a lifetime – where every day leads to something new and unexpected. Meet colourful characters as you explore the culture and communities at your own pace. Along the way, enjoy customized guidebooks, itineraries, guest homes, and vehicles that match your personal style and help create an unforgettable travel experience.

For an inspiring mix of hiking, storytelling and music all at once, don’t miss the Trails, Tales and Tunes Festival. This annual springtime festival, held in breathtaking Gros Morne National Park, offers two weeks of hiking and walking complemented by delicious food and top-notch musical entertainment. Bring your own instrument to the Tune Up, a musical workshop and jam session. And don’t miss the music, dancing and fun at the Singing Kitchen – a ‘time’ held at a local restaurant.
