Bonavista Adventure Tours offers visitors a variety of outdoor adventures available through October including historical walking, boating and hiking tours, as well as foraging and beach boil ups.  Often referred to as a “mug-up,” Newfoundland boil-ups are a local favourite tradition where groups of friends and family gather on the beach for tea and cooking over the open fire.  The Forage & Beach Boil Up excursion starts with foraging for natural ingredients such as berries, plants, and seafood to be cooked during the boil-up,  the four-hour experience also includes samples of salt fish, lobster, cod, mussels and moose.
