A Wildly Unique Experience


Experience Twillingate is a local owned tour and culinary group preserving the culture and history of outport Newfoundland and Labrador. Here, we have embraced the old ways and traditions, as we forage along our rocky shores – much like our families did decades before us.

Tour guide and visual artist, Crystal Anstey, is dedicated to preserving these historic and authentic experiences of Newfoundland.

Taste The Difference

Fresh. Local. Hand Harvested.

Newfoundlanders and Labradorians have always lived off the land. Since these deceptively barren shores were first settled, the people of this proud island have learned to harvest its hidden bounty of food and cultivate its rocky soil. Here you will learn how to forage – how to tend an open fire. Here you will learn to prepare the fruits of your labour.

Stroll through our fields and explore our beaches. Know first-hand the stunning beauty that is Newfoundland and Labrador. When you have finished the day’s journey, we will make a fire and experience a traditional Newfoundland boil-up, share stories and laughter.

Along The Shore

Breathtaking Scenery

We dine on the beach, with simple fare, both delicious and fresh, cooked over an open fire. No fancy linen, no evening dresses or suits. Just authentic rustic food in a setting unparalleled to any restaurant in the world. Listen to the sea and the surf; relax and enjoy that which you have found and prepared.

The universe provides everything we need, and sometimes in our own backyard.ATSARUAT (fake berry)

CHAMOMILE (aka Pineapple Weed)

The flowers, leaves and stems can be chopped and used in soups. The berries can be boiled to make tea to help treat cough, stress or depression, headaches and even scarlet fever. The whole plant can be boiled and used as a compress for arthritis but you have to follow the regime precisly.
First you boil the whole plant and wrap in a cloth and apply to the affected area for 15-20 minutes a day for 15 days. If one day is missed you have to start over. They say if slime comes on the wrap that it's the illness being drawn out. If more than one arthritic area needs to be treated you must use separate wraps so not to pass one illness to another part of the body.


1) You can predict a future berry crop by chamomile. If chamomile is abundant, berries will be plentiful.

2) You can dry chamomile, throw it on the wood in your smokehouse when smoking fish.

3) Chamomile is most abundant where dogs live.
