Travel Tips: Getting to Labrador

Labrador is one of the world's last remaining vast wild frontiers and travel can be a challenge. Airlines are small and some flights are weekly, so careful planning and flexibility are a must, and please remember all amenities that you are accustomed to might not be available. Travel to and from Labrador and meeting kind local people are just as much a part of the adventure. Passports Required.

Your Arrival:

You should plan on meeting us at the WANDERBIRD between 6 and 9 PM on the evening before your cruise departure date. You may stay aboard the WANDERBIRD, as our guest the night before your cruise departs, but plan on finding dinner in town. The first meal we serve aboard will be breakfast on the morning of departure. We will serve cold drinks, tea & coffee that evening and you may want to explore the small friendly port town, and pick up a few last minute items.
