Combining the Art of Photography and Adventure Travel

Newfoundland Photo Tour - June 12 to 21, 2024  - Our tour is sold out

Newfoundland Photo Tour - "The journey begins on the road less travelled" 

In Newfoundland, the journey can be as colourful as stories told around the kitchen table. As meandering as our thousands of kilometres of coastline. As surprising as a humpback whale breaching in the mist. Or as comforting as bakeapple jam. There are places that travel with you, wherever you go.

There are places on this earth that continue to live inside of you long after you’ve travelled on. Places where you’ll find yourself among the friendliest of unfamiliar faces, some of whom may become lifelong friends. Newfoundland sets the stage for that kind of experience.

We look forward to you joining us in one of Canada's most photographic playgrounds.
