Newfoundland/East Coast Trip

Jump to last reply

Our family has 3 weeks to visit the East Coast and plan to spend approx 10 days in NFLD. We have 2 kids, aged 8 and 10 and we love hiking, nature and pottering around cities. This is what I've tentatively planned but am a little concerned that we're trying to put too much into 1 trip (although multiple trips out East will not be feasible so we want to make the best of this trip).

Due to the cost of rental cars and drop off fees in NFLD it seems to me its best to use Halifax as our base

Day 1: Fly to Halifax
Day 2-3: Halifax/Peggy's Cove
Day 4-7: PEI
Day 8-10: Cape Breton
Day 11: North Sydney to St. Johns
Day 12-14: St. Johns
Day 15: Drive to Twillingate
Day 16: Drive to Gros Morne
Day 17-20: Gros Morne
Day 20: Overnight Ferry to North Sydney
Day 21: Drive to Halifax to catch flight home

We haven't booked anything yet and as such are very flexible - I would appreciate any ideas to make this trip one to remember.
