Geology, Nature and Culture of Newfoundland and Labrador

Viking Ruins, Giant Icebergs, & Geologic Wonders

CanadaJoin award-winning author and Lawrence Professor of Geology Marcia Bjørnerud for a transformative trip to Newfoundland and Labrador!

A message from Marcia Bjørnerud:

The island of Newfoundland – fondly known as ‘The Rock’ to those who live there – is the  easternmost part of North America, with a time zone all its own, 30 minutes ahead of clocks on the mainland. In this and many other ways, ‘Newfies’ march to their own rhythms in a place that is a world apart.

The province of Newfoundland and Labrador is the only place on the continent where, in a single day, can you see Viking ruins, walk over an upturned slice of the Earth’s mantle, and watch giant icebergs from Greenland passing by. For centuries, human culture there has been shaped by the rocky land and stormy but bountiful seas. It’s a place where nature still looms large. The rocks of Newfoundland and Labrador have remarkable stories to tell - of Earth’s deepest Ice age, the emergence of the first animals, the collision of continents, eruption of undersea volcanoes, and much more.

I invite you to explore the landscapes, history and culture of Newfoundland and Labrador with me on a very special Björklunden trip, from August 29 to September 10, 2019. For those who are interested, there will be opportunities for more physically adventurous outings. I do hope you can join us.
