DAY 3

After the challenging hike yesterday you get a break today with some lighter walks. But although the walks are not intense the scenery definitely is! Today you will be taking a boat ride through a fjord that is well-known for it's stunning views. You will learn how the glaciers carved out the landscape so many years ago and see waterfalls tumbling from the cliffs. In the afternoon you will stretch your legs on a short trek to a stunning beach with sand dunes and views of the mountains that you cruised through earlier today.

You will start with a hike to a lighthouse and then walk along a path by a cobble beach. Once again, you will get a beautiful view of the Long Range Mountains in the distance. Your journey today will also take you through "tuckamores" - short, crooked trees that are stunted from the frost and wind of the harsh Newfoundland environment.
