CapeRace™ is a boutique travel company specializing in upbeat, self-guided travel experiences at Canada’s most eastern island of Newfoundland.

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.
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.
To make people happy through the delivery of a true Newfoundland adventure.
