CapeRace™ is a boutique travel company specializing in upbeat, authentic self-guided travel experiences at Canada’s most eastern island of Newfoundland. We are the only travel company that transparently initiates real connections with the local community in a self-guided travel format. With spontaneity as your compass and your energy as your limit, we send you on a scavenger hunt for colourful people and exotic places in an environment unmatched anywhere in the world.

Typical Day

CapeRace will give you a key that fits the locks of three newly restored homes situated in spectacular coastal locations, a car, and a one-off self-published commercial-grade guidebook written specifically for your CapeRace trip. Travellers stay at these authentic indigenous homes on an exclusive"use basis, and use the self-directing "Traveller's Diary" to explore unique and out-of-the-way nature sites, pubs, and music venues - recommending activities that will inspire the traveler to become part of three local communities. Each are located within a three hour proximity, and offer a different measure of Newfoundland's intriguing cultural, scenic, and sporting assets. The flexible self-driving, self-guiding circuit-tour gives you the opportunity to experience cultural and ecological discovery at your own pace, on your own terms. In 2004 we introduced our first tour, the "Eco-Culture Experience". This spring, our self-guided package was chosen by the editors of National Geographic Traveler as "2009 Tour of a Lifetime", based on a criteria of authenticity, seasoned expertise, sustainability, unprecedented access, and local connections.

Policies & Restrictions

We base our travel principles on the newly emerging geotourism concepts. Geotourism is not about rocks. It is tourism that sustains or enhances the geographical character of a place"its environment, culture, aesthetics, heritage, and the well-being of its residents. Geotourism incorporates the concept of sustainable tourism"that destinations should remain unspoiled for future generations"while allowing for enhancement that protects the character of the locale. We have integrated these ideas and concepts into our overall approach, and you will come away with a surprising newfound feeling of how and why responsible travel should be undertaken.


$ 1495 per person based on quad occupancy. Other rates available.

Other Information

We have had a overwhelming response to our new concept in experiential Newfoundland travel. The key to having a life less ordinary while on your time away from home is the CapeRace Traveller's Diary, a commercial grade guidebook written and demand-printed specifically for your trip, The custom guidebook will help you reach those elusive authentic social experiences and at the same time allow you to make decisions on just how mainstream-or not-- you want your trip to be. It can guide you to the "good crowds", and keep you away from the bad. It gives you choice. The Traveler's Diary is also key to our desire to promote responsible travel. Unknown to many, responsible travel often produces the best travel experiences, and at the same time takes care of our environment and preserves our sense of place.
