Places along trip

Burgeo is the largest communities on the coast, making it the hub for goods and passenger transportation. It is also home to the Sandbanks provincial park which offers 7 kilometers of white sand beaches. Leaving directly from the ferry terminal, we usually spend some time paddling around the 365 islands and then explore the beaches for the rest of the day

Located 6 kilometers off the Southwest coast, Ramea is a very lively and high in culture (and accent!) outport community. The islands offer pristine paddling grounds with sheltered waters and carribean green underwater scenery. Many day and half day paddles are a stone throw away from the Lodge, while the islands themselves offer great hiking terrain as well..


Grey River

Grey River CanyonGrey River CanyonLocated about 10 miles east of Ramea, the community of Grey River sits at the mouth of a beautiful fjord. The lower part of thebay is surrounded by 1000′ cliffs while the upper section branches into three arms, one of them leading to world class salmon fishing Grey River.
This day-trip you will let you experience a genuine outport adventure and feel the accomplishment of a good day’s paddle.


White Bear Bay-Fox island 

Jane's HillJane's HillFrequently Sometimes called ‘God’s Country’ by the locals, White Bear Bay is literally a small cabin community. A number of Ramea residents go ‘up the bay’ to go hunting, fishing and to get back to nature. The 12-mile long inlet is very rugged and scenic, with numerous waterfalls and unique wildlife sightings such as caribou and bald eagles.
We make this an overnight trip to Eastern Outdoors’ cabin, accompanied by a support boat. Hike Jane’s Hill, swim in Northwest Brook and enjoy the peacefulness of this very special place. Very weather dependent.



Journey back to the roots of true Newfoundland. Experience modern day and iconic past all nestled in a picturesque fishing village. Relaxation and tranquility for those who want to get away from the hectic pace of the outside world.
