Starting from the top of the National Historic Site of Signal Hill, you will hike along the stunningly beautiful coastline, eventually ending up in St. John’s for a berry wine tasting.


After departing from the pier, you will enjoy a brief drive through St. John’s to Signal Hill, where signal flags were once flown to announce the names of approaching ships. It was also here in 1901 that Guglielmo Marconi received the first transatlantic wireless signal. While walking the hill’s boardwalks, you will learn about the military history of this strategic site, and enjoy magnificent views of sights such as your ship in the harbor below.


Your descent from Signal Hill will be on foot down North Head Trail, a winding path that follows the edge of the bluff in parts. It’s well worth the effort as the views of the sea and surrounding landscape are absolutely breathtaking. Expect to see wildflowers, seabirds, and fishing trawlers cruising through the Narrows, the aptly named channel to the harbor.


In time, you will arrive in St. John’s and make your way to Water Street, which is thought to be the oldest street in North America. It’s now lined with historical shops, restaurants and galleries, one of which you will stop in for a wine tasting. The exact selection of berry wines will be determined at the gallery, but they could be produced from blueberries, raspberries or even cloudberries. Afterwards, you will make the short walk back to the pier.
