The Humber flows into the Bay of Islands, a mesmerizing blend of mountain-topped islands and soaring fjords. To best appreciate the bay and the isolated inlets to the north, contact True North Tours (w truenorthtours.ca). Tony and Joan Oxford run 2hr 30min tours along Middle and Goose Arms from Cox’s Cove (at the end of Rte-440, 40km from Corner Brook), passing resettled villages, a Dorset Paleo-Eskimo site and plenty of wildlife, including whales, ospreys and bald eagles. During the journey they regale their passengers with folk songs and stories of Newfoundland history – you might also catch a cod or two. Tours run daily between July and September ($40).
