Receptive Tour Operators
Receptive operators can help you plan an unforgettable experience for your clients. As locals, you can bet that they know every nook and cranny, off the beaten path, and awe-inspiring natural places throughout this compelling land of ours. They can find those hidden gems and once-in-a-lifetime experiences too, with customized itineraries for groups, fully independent travellers, and so much more.
We’ve created an Itinerary Planner that will allow you to plan the perfect trip and customize your days to focus on the experiences you’re looking for. With every visit, you’ll discover there is so much more to see and do here.
Top 10 Reasons to Visit
Four UNESCO World Heritage Sites
Visit Gros Morne National Park, a natural wonder 20 times older than the Rockies. L’Anse aux Meadows National Historic Site, the only authenticated Viking settlement in North America. Red Bay National Historic Site, the remnants of a 16th-century Basque whaling station. Mistaken Point Ecological Reserve, the oldest complex life forms on Earth, 565 million years old.
With more than 29,000 kilometres (18,000 miles) of majestic rugged coastline, you’re never far from the ocean. See houses of yellow and blue, lime, aqua, and green that cling to the shore in villages, outports, coves, guts, and bays; as proud to show their true colours as the people you’ll meet at every turn.
Breathe in plenty of fresh sea air along Iceberg Alley, where 10,000-year-old mountains of fresh water, carved from the glaciers of Greenland and the Arctic, glide past in spring and early summer.
World’s Largest Population of Humpback Whales
Icebergs drift south. Humpbacks migrate north. This is the place where their paths cross and is home to the world’s largest population of feeding humpback whales. Every year, 22 species of whales and dolphins come for peace and quiet, and the odd photo op.
The most spectacular and accessible seabird colonies in North America. More than 35 million seabirds gather here every year. Northern gannets, kittiwakes, murres, Atlantic puffins, osprey, falcons, hawks, storm petrels, razorbills, and bald eagles at six ecological reserves, including the magnificent Cape St. Mary’s Ecological Reserve.
In addition to being a great spot for hiking and kayaking, we’re one of the few places in the world to receive simultaneous visits from whales, seabirds, and icebergs. As the whales and birds migrate north and the icebergs sail south, there’s a chance to experience all three of these wonderful sights in one trip. Like so much in nature, there are many factors that vary from year to year, but with luck you’ll witness this exciting spectacle.
