Newfoundland and Labrador Holidays

Newfoundland and Labrador make up Canada’s most easterly province. A colourful past with marauding Vikings, indigenous Beothuck Indians and Basque whalers is still in evidence today in a wealth of historic sites and museums, whilst countless lighthouses stand testament to the mariners and fisherman that continue to brave these waters.

Whale watching

Boasting a lengthy Atlantic coastline, the region is renowned for whale-watching, with large pods of humpback, minke, sperm and blue whales frequenting these waters between May and September.

Bird life

Bird life is in abundance with over 35 million seabirds, including puffins, petrels and razorbills, as well as falcons, hawks and ospreys.

Icebergs

Icebergs are also regularly sighted in the ocean here – spectacular structures up to ten thousand years old float south from the Arctic in early spring each year, following a route known as ‘Iceberg Alley’.

National Parks and Historic Sites

Of Canada’s 17 UNESCO World Heritage Sites, three can be found in Newfoundland and Labrador – Gros Morne National Park, L’Anse aux Meadows National Historic Site, Torngat Mountains National Park, and Red Bay National Historic Site. All offer spectacular scenery as well as a wealth of historic interest or wildlife attractions, and provide a real sense of the remoteness of this awe-inspiring part of Canada.
