Newfoundland and Labrador Travel Guide
Quaint villages and colourful clapboard houses line the shores around the province of Newfoundland / Labrador and the unmistakable hospitality shines notability anywhere a Newfoundlander travels! A world of its own, Newfoundland / Labrador has distinct characteristics that set it apart from the other province’s, not to mention North America. Newfoundland is home to the oldest city in Canada, St. John’s, where the wharves and weathered fishing boats trim the popular coastal area known as Petty Harbour. Newfoundland / Labrador are often referred to as the “Edge of the Earth” with its chiseled coves, rocky point light houses, seaside inlets, and rolling hills layered in coastal sunset, this edge is paradise filled with tranquility, amazing views, and rich history. Labrador, recognized as “The Big Land”, hosts the pristine coastal forests, the Torngat Mountains National Park, and the abandoned Moravian settlement at Hebron being key highlights. The natural position on the Atlantic sea gives visitors rare opportunities to view gigantic icebergs (not found as effortlessly from any port anywhere in the world), migration of an incredibly wide variety of whales, and one of Canada’s largest seabird colonies of over thirty thousand birds – mind boggling proportions when standing front and center. A province in constant celebration and which hosts it all during the four seasons, Newfoundland and Labrador undoubtedly enriches the visitor’s spirits!
