To be done on a sunny day with good visibility! We were lucky and had the most amazing boat ride. Stunning views of the fjords! Easy and scenic 3 kms trail to the boat.

We recently returned from Newfoundland and this had to be one of the best activities that we did. The views were absolutely stunning! I couldn't stop taking pictures. The history and the stories told by the staff were really interesting. Even the 3.5 km walk to the boat was spectacular. They post information about the animals, plants, landscape, etc. along the route. This is definitely something not to be missed.

Great Boat tour. Beautiful scenery on the tour.. Very popular so try and book ahead.. But well worth the walk back to the boat if you can do it.

We have rated this an excellent and were only able to complete half the tour!! The guides were very informative along the way. What impressed us the most was they decided to end the trip half way through because the fog did not allow us to see to the top of the fjord walls. When we reached the dock, we were given a full refund. It takes a class act to give up the revenue from a fully booked trip. Due to our time constraints, we could not return to redo the trip........ our loss!

The 40 min walk in is very interesting and an easy hike. The boat trip is worht every penny and is one of a kind. Anyone visiting Newfoundland should try to make the trip.
