Our Expedition “In the Footsteps of Basque Whalers in Newfoundland and Labrador” is confirmed!
This will mark the opening of the first cultural route and touristic venture ever built around the legacy and vestiges of the Basque fishermen and whalers who built large first scale industry on, and were among the first Europeans to reach the American continent. We would be remiss if we didn’t express our profound gratitude for their support to all of our wonderful friends and collaborators, Canadian and Basque entities, and especially to the many of you who took a chance and signed up to be a part of our trip before we could say with complete certainty that our project would become a reality.
The trip nears. In subsequent newsletters we will bring more reports about our ship “The Ocean Endeavour” and the many activities and destinations which will fill our expedition. What receptions await us at the UNESCO World Heritage Site Basque Whaling Station at Red Bay? What engagement will we have with the Basque community in St Pierre and Miquelon? What are the Menus that the Basque Culinary Center will prepare for us on our trip? Stay tuned, we will talk about these things and much more in the coming months.
For those interested in signing up today please look at our Registration Form.
Again, thank you so much for your support and interest and we’ll be in contact next month! Don’t hesitate to write us before then if you have any questions or comments!
