During this tour we explore one of the most remote areas along the coast of Newfoundland, Fortune Bay. Our journey that will take us from Bay l’Argent [on the Burin Peninsula] to Pool’s Cove [on the Connaigre Peninsula] and will include a ferry trip.
Along route we will visit Rencontre East, one of the last outports accessible only by sea and Long Harbour, a narrow fjord which runs deep into the interior. at the spectacular promantory guarding the entrance an islolated graveyard marks an abandoned village. A hike up upon the rugged plateau leads to a fascinating primitive cart track that winds over the barren bedrock connecting the remnants of two early settlements - and offering a panoramic view up the coastline.
