The environment is front and centre, from purchasing green goods to green travel. And now, it is possible to participate in ecotourism and stay well within your honeymoon budget. One of the options is Newfoundland-bound.
What to expect
Experience crashing waves, rugged wilderness and a Viking legacy when you take a six-day trip through Newfoundland and discover another world. Take in the beauty of Gros Morne National Park, Port ou Choix and Saint Anthony, while viewing fantastic wildlife.
What to do
Sea kayak at the foot of the Table Mountains, hike past ancient cultures on the Viking Trail and experience wild mountains on the way to the Baker River chutes. Visit the site of Leif Erikson’s Viking village and then take a boat ride among the seaside icebergs and numerous whales.
Where to stay
It’s all provided. You enjoy the luxury of comfortable hotels every night. Note, however, that the trip is seasonal – summer months only. Cost about $2,000 per person. Other eco-trips ideas can include sailing in Croatia and local living in Patagonia.
