    michael, 65 years old was there in June

    The weather was mostly sunny with temperatures around 20 degrees. but there were also some days where it rained very strongly. the lowest temperature we had in Lans aux Medeauws and Red Bay with only 2 degrees in the night. also the crossing to Labrador was not exactly pleasant with almost 3m high waves and enormous icebergs, as the crew mastered the excellent. Days later, the storm had thrown huge blocks of ice overnight to the shore at Blanc Sable. Nevertheless, everything was uniquely beautiful and always worth a trip.

    Weather Rating: 4 stars – Good
