“What travelers love about tours is the inside knowledge, but it can be hard to have genuine experiences when you’re being shown around rather than exploring for yourself,” the article states. “From this idea, the folks at Cape Race Newfoundland Adventure Inc. decided to devise a travel guide that would escort travelers through the region at their own pace. The guidebook will bring you to locations that locals hold secret and give you the opportunity to engage with the communities you’ll pass in an organic way. The focus on eco and experiential tourism is what makes this tour truly unique and an experience you’ll cherish for a lifetime.”

“With a biologist as your tour guide, Tuckamore Discoveries will take you out into the wilderness to see and learn about the local puffin population,” the article explains. “You’ll start out in Bonavista, and hike to a remote area where these animals roam so you can get as close as possible while being respectful to their habitat. It’s an incredible experience only local experts could bring you out on.”
