What travellers are saying
- Was in Twillingate and embarked on Iceberg Quest tour on 7/16/23 and had a fantastic tour. Barry Rogers was the skipper and Roy and Sally the crew. We saw lots of icebergs and had a magnificent experience. Barry was very knowledgable and his commentary was informative.

- The Quidi Vidi Charters cod fishing was a highlight of our time in Newfoundland.
Time on the Atlantic with Ted, Kevin and Natalie was so special with no shortage of cod!
Georgie cooked us up an amazing meal and we felt right at home.

- We chose Wildland Tours’ May Magic on the Avalon on May 16 -May 20, 2023. We travelled North America’s most easterly point to Cape Spear. Breathtaking view of natural habitat. After stopping at Bay Bulls historic site, our fantastic Tour leader, Darrell Penney, took us on O’Brien’s Boat Tour to North America’s largest Atlantic Puffin colony. Coutless varieties of seabirds for the eye to see. We were close up as they flew by! Cameras were clicking. Privileged to see many natural habitats and woodland animals as we travelled upward along the Southern Shore. Stopped by the UNESCO World Heritage site. Bonus to see the oldest, largest complex life-forms 580 to 560 million-year-old Ediacaran fossils that are not found anywhere else on earth! We stopped to see coastal colourful communities-took photos of fishing boats and their hand-made lobster and crab traps, and then continued and saw icebergs in May! If you get a chance, stop by the EDGE OF AVALON INN. What mouth-watering stuffed chiken breasts! Everything is done fresh and delicious. I recommend this Inn. The owners are so friendly and accommodating. We saw our continent’s 3rd largest and most accessible Northern Gannet colony. This is the breeding ground for the world’s most southerly breeding thick-billed murres as well as thousands of other seabirds. Wow. Evenings, we ventured wherever we wanted to go. We explored the shops, and many restaurants for evening meal experiences. I really enjoyed the fresh cod at the Salt House. If you mention you’re a Wildland Tour visitor at this fantastic gift shop: WILD THINGS, 120 Water Street, you receive a 20% discount on all your souvenir purchases. Everyone in St. John's is friendly and we enjoyed talking to them and learning their culture. Bonus: Wildland Tours treated us to a lovely farewell evening meal. And, besides being picked up at St. John's airport, we were given a pre-paid taxi voucher for our return back to the airport. Thank you to all the staff at Wildland Tours for the warm welcome and for this priceless experience. Marie Felix (Toronto, ON)Written May 23, 2023
