Escorted Tours of Newfoundland and Labrador

I am looking for an escorted tour of Newfoundland and Labrador where most of the participants are in the 35 - 55 year age bracket. Has anyone been on the Newfoundland and Labrador tour offered by Globus? Can anyone recommend a company that offers NL tours for this age group? I looked into McCarthy's Party, as they got good reviews, however, their participants are primarily seniors.

Thank you.

You may already have looked at the main Newfoundland and Labrador tourism website -- they list many, many tour operators. I found a couple of Viking Trail tours (departing Deer Lake in western Newfoundland) that were around 12+ days. newfoundlandlabrador.com/planyourtrip/localt…

Thanks to both replies. I am not necessarily concerned about the length of the tour as I am about the quality of the Tour Company. Decent food and accomodations as well as good wildlife sites etc. Thanks again

Stephen, if you're still interested in Newfoundland as a destination, Eastern Edge Cultural Adventures, listed on the provincial website, does customized tours to your specifications.

Did you have any luck sourcing a company for tours of Newfoundland. I'm looking for similar this year but finding it very difficult to find anything.

Many thanks

Hi,

One of my workmates booked time off during the period that I to go to Newfoundland, coincidentally to go to Newfoundland (self guided driving holiday with her husband), so I am going somewhere else this year. I am still planning to go to Newfoundland, probably next summer. I think I will book with McCarthy's Party tours.

Yes tagging a few days on the end might work. The seniors tours will still do the hotspots. We did a Globus tour in Ireland and there was a full age range including young newlyweds. There aren't many group tour options and limited travel opportunities for those who don't drive. Since we're such a large province with a sparse population it is hard to make money on mass transport. There are regional 'taxi' services that run vans from St. John's to various areas of the Island. These are not tours, just ways to get around. You can easily spend a few days in St. John's without a car if you stay near the downtown or even hire a car for a day to take you to Cape Spear and sight seeing.

There are several companies that offer guided/packaged tours of NL. This link divides them between Local NL based tour companies, Canadian companies, and International companies:

As I live hereand have never taken such a tour, I can't speak to the details or the pros and cons of each, but at least you will have a list of locally based and Canadian based companies that do offer tours here! Good Luck!!

Hello - did you find any company doing what you looked for.

I would like to do the same tour and am the same age group

and also found that many of the companies were for mostly

seniors. Would love to hear if you got on a tour.

Many thanks

Josephine
