review 30 Jul 2013

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

Where to start? Could it be the close encounters with puffins? Or the white beaked dolphins playing with a humpback whale calf? The spotting of an Osprey nest on top of the telegraph pole? Moose spotting? Trying to find the lighthouse on Care Spear (fog!)Or the tour leader singing local balads whilst travelling to our next wildlife encounter? Or being 'screeched in' in St. John's memorial park? ...most memorable? ALL OF IT!

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Remember NewfoundLAND is vast! Do not underestimate the distances between places you visit.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Yes - we went out with local boat-tour operators, ate in local (and special) places that were off the beaten track. Identification of whale flukes - a mother was spooted with a calf - adult last seen in 2004, and now returned with a calf, great to have this local knowledge and help with whale recognistion and recording.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

Fabulous...what I expected and more. Please visit NewfoundLAND and use this operator.
