Our 2019 adventure exploring Newfoundland and Labrador aboard the RCGS Resolute was a win-win-win. For one thing, we visited a new-to-us part of Canada, including many stops well off the beaten path. We made new friends. And our experience confirmed that expedition cruising is a pretty good fit with our travel preferences.
What a spot for the last Zodiac excursion on One Ocean's Labrador and Torngat Mountains expedition cruise: the Button Islands are located near an upwelling of ocean currents laden with nutrients, which make these barren, low islands the Arctic equivalent of an African watering hole. A frigid Zodiac safari in the Button Islands is likely to encounter sea birds, marine mammals and polar bears.
