Experiences include local storytelling and folk art; a Mi’kmaq welcome at Miawpukek First Nation; time in Gros Morne National Park; a taste of the fine wine and cuisine of North America’s last French colony, the island of Saint-Pierre; and the Viking history of L’Anse aux Meadows on the Great Northern Peninsula.

While cruising the coastline of Newfoundland, guests visit picturesque villages while learning about Viking archaeology, an important part of the region’s history experienced by walking through reconstructed Viking habitations at L’Anse aux Meadows, a UNESCO World Heritage site and the only authenticated Norse settlement in North America. Other days bring additional explorations, including learning about Basque whaling history or the native Mi’kmaw culture, with several hikes along the scenic coastlines and remote landscapes.

Canada’s youngest province is unlike anywhere else on Earth, and photo opportunities are frequent. The wildlife and scenery are breathtaking, Canadian hospitality is inspiring, and the Newfoundland & Labrador landscape is filled with unexpected and surprising sights.

Canadian destinations on the itinerary include Gros Morne, where the Earth’s mantle protrudes through the crust; Red Bay, where Basque whalers once plied their trade; L’Anse aux Meadows, where Vikings established a base; Miawpukek First Nation, where a thriving community offers a warm welcome; and the French island of Saint-Pierre, which provides a taste of Europe.

Detailed 2024 and 2025 itineraries and prices are available at Adventure Canada.

Hôtel des Grands Voyageurs Review

It’s often declared Paris’ Left Bank, or La Rive Gauche, the local side of the Seine —  where bohemian and chic are used superfluously, albeit with some veracity. It only makes sense that travelers looking to stay on the Left Bank would seek as local an accommodation as possible — Hôtel des Grands Voyageurs is the new kid on the block and certainly delivers this with its design following the likes of a Parisian art collectors’ residence.

Seoul Garners Good Fortune on a Wave of Cultural Popularity

First came the musical mega-hit, “Gangnam Style,” in 2012, leading the band PSY to the top of the charts, only to be followed by other beloved K-pop bands like BTS. Then, in 2020, Parasite became the first non-English-language film to win the Academy Award for Best Picture. The following year, the latest in a long line of Korean television shows or K-dramas, Squid Game became Netflix’s most watched series and the most watched program in 94 countries. Add the rise of Korean fine dining around the globe along with the demand for K-beauty products and high fashion, often influenced by the traditional Korean garb called hanbok, and you arrive at the cultural phenomenon called hallyu, or the Korean Wave. Indeed, South Korean popular culture, with Seoul at its epicenter, reached such a status Boston’s Museum of Fine Arts installed a hallyu exhibition, currently on display through July, which originated at London’s Victoria and Albert Museum.
