Newfoundland 2019 Road Trip

Newfoundland by Car

For this year's road trip, we flew to Newfoundland. The trip started out as a desire to see the icebergs that float down Iceberg Alley and Atlantic Puffins, but after researching the island, we realized there was so much more to see. In 10 days we drove 70% of the island, hiked two national parks and a world rated hike. Explored amazing nature and encountered more wildlife than ever before on a single trip. We walked on 1.2 billion year old rocks and explored historical places dating back as far as 1000 AD. And we saw thousands and seabirds. Check out each day to follow our adventures. Spoiler Alert: there's a lot of photos of icebergs and seabirds, in case you're not interested.
