Friday, September 7, 2018 9:30 am - 5:00 pm- Sunday, September 09, 2018

Includes three picnic lunches and transportation from Cupid's Cove Plantation to the departure point and return.

Join us for an epic adventure from the oldest English settlement in Canada. Explore how early settlers and the Beothuk used the resources available to them to survive and live on the Avalon Peninsula by hiking a portion of Crout's Way trail with costumed interpreters & black powder demonstrations. Explore the former Beothuk encampment in Blaketown as well as a short boat to Dildo Island. There's a lot to discover.
