Visit the top of Signal Hill for a photo stop, and a chance to sample the local rum. A costumed character will share with you historical recipes and mixing ingredients used to make rum. You’ll sample several varieties that were once served to the pirates of the 17th century, Royal Navy of the 19th century and the British Army from the 19th-20th century.

Continue your journey through the historic fishing village of Quidi Vidi, pronounced Kiddy Viddy, a small fishing village, which is still home to local fishermen that brave the Atlantic Ocean every day making a living. You’ll stop at a local pub and sample a local brew, and then continue on foot to a second pub to take part in the time honored ‘Screech-In’ ceremony. Be prepared to introduce yourself and recite the ceremony oath, swig back a shot glass of ‘Screech’……..and if you pass the ceremony you’ll be an honorary Newfoundlander!
