We also suggest a visit to one of the province’s most photographed places, Quidi Vidi Village, and perhaps a stop at Quidi Vidi Brewery. On the second day, drive to Bay Bulls where you can take a boat excursion to see whales and Atlantic puffin, and maybe even an iceberg. Next it’s on to Cape St. Mary’s Ecological Reserve, which is settled by thousands of sea birds, all nestled along the rocky shore’s edge.

Following an overnight in Trinity, spend your day exploring the enchanting village, with its restored pastel coloured clapboard houses.
