Why settle for one rugged wilderness destination when you can drive around both Newfoundland and Labrador?

Take it to the edge – the dramatic eastern edge of North America - and be prepared to discover an environment that is a million miles from the gentle countryside you’re used to in England. Newfoundland and Labrador are wild and remote. Landscapes have their own bleak beauty, while the coast is made jagged by deep fjords and peppered with fishing communities of friendly locals.  

All Bridge & Wickers vacations are tailor-made and no two are the same. We have made some accommodations suggestions, however we will tailor your quote to your preferred standard and style of accommodations.

This is a sample itinerary to inspire your holiday – it can be tweaked in every way possible from the places you want to go to and number of days you spend in each, as well as hotels you stay in and activities you do. Get in touch with one of our experts by calling +44+4402073864646 and a consultant will start creating your perfect trip.
