Newfoundland's French Shore Trek & Boat Tour

On July 20, IAT Chairperson Paul Wylezol, volunteer Brandie-Lyn Leafloor and hiker Connie Lebrun from Alberta headed out from the lookoff above Conche on the eastern side of Newfoundland's Great Northern Peninsula on a two-day trek of the IATNL French Shore Trail, followed by a full-day boat tour of the surrounding islands and headlands to view icebergs and whales, seals and seabirds.  The goal was to plan the logistics for upcoming guided treks and boat tours of the scenic and historic French Shore of Newfoundland.

The IATNL French Shore Trail begins at the communication tower above Conche, near the scenic lookoff overlooking Conche and Crouse Harbours and Peninsulas, and the North and South Grey Islands.
