Newfoundland - Trinity Bay
Rated #1 in 2011 by National Geographic’s Traveler magazine of the world's great coastlines for sustainability and authenticity, a journey to the Avalon Peninsula is like going back in time. It’s close-knit communities; strong local culture and unspoiled scenery provide a unique insight into an earlier era. During this wilderness journey we will visit the ragged coastline of western Trinity Bay on a journey from Random Island, to the historic town of Trinity. Along this unspoilt coast the cliffs, coves and sea caves have not changed in millennia with a variety that will captivate the coastal paddler. A highlight will be a visit to the abandoned community of Ireland’s Eye.
The Trinity Bay sea kayaking expedition is suitable for paddlers with some previous experience. The trip is run in cooperation with Coastal Adventures.
