A Four-Night, Exclusive Journey on the Trail in Newfoundland with Quench Travel

The routes near St John’s Newfoundland reveal some of Canada’s most dramatic scenery: barren headlands, silky marshes, and soaring coastal cliffs. Where else can you spot whales, icebergs, and an abundance of wildflowers as you stride along with the salt-wind in your face? Join Trail Supporter Quench Travel and spend 4 days hiking the first 40 kilometres of the scenic path with animated local guides, starting at North America’s easternmost point, Cape Spear. Dates: September 16 – 20, 2018

“The coastal trails are as beautiful as any in the world. It’s an area of The Great Trail that is not only gorgeous to walk, but that allows visitors to immerse themselves in a unique part of Canadian culture.  A walk is great, but it is the encounters with great characters and local experiences along the way that make a journey like this special.”
