Trail Connections


I am writing to say that our entire trip was a huge success and we are extremely grateful to you for making all the arrangements.... What was wonderful about this trip was that we got great exercise, saw beautiful scenery, met warm and funny people and had no responsibility (ie meals were arranged, hikes were suggested ... we just had to do what we were told). We came back relaxed, rested and happy.

...Rest assured that the East Coast Trail is getting good publicity amongst our friends and colleagues both here and in Europe.

Just a quick note to let you know that Neil and I loved our hiking experience in Newfoundland. You and all our B&B hosts were fabulous and made us feel right at home. Also, the hiking was wonderful. The NFLD scenery and weather exceeded our expectations. We took some great pictures of our hikes which I hope to paint.

I just arrived home this afternoon after the best hiking holiday I think I have ever had. Thank you so much for making it possible. We had great weather, good accommodation with super hosts and more great food ... The hikes we took were spectacular. ... We were all sorry to leave Newfoundland but we are coming back.

We had a wonderful 3 weeks - 10 days of memorable hikes and encounters with friendly fun-loving people ... the first 3 weeks in June were perfect for hiking - cool, clear and not at all busy! We have become Alberta ambassadors for the East Coast Trail - We Loved IT!!!! You have a terrific province and fine people - Thanks for ordering all of the icebergs for us to see. We are hoping to return at some point in the future.

We just got back to Kingston yesterday, and we already miss NL. We had a wonderful trip, everything was great, and we are quite sad to be back. ... Thanks again for setting up our itinerary the way you did; it was perfect and we enjoyed it very much. We think that the East Coast Trail initiative is a wonderful thing both for NL and for hikers like us. Further, Trail Connections makes everything simple, easy, and worry free. Thanks again for a great vacation!

Wir hatten wirklich eine sehr schoene Zeit und moechten uns noch ein Mal sehr fuer die hervorragende Organisation bedanken! Wir werden sicher viel und gern davon erzaehlen, vielleicht koennen wir auf dem Weg noch mehr fuer eine solche Tour begeistern.
