NEWFOUNDLAND AND LABRADOR - the best insider tips for vacation, holiday & travel
Newfoundland and Labrador are 2 islands in Canada encompassing more than 405,000 square kilometers of land and over 27,000 kilometers of shoreline in the northeastern part of North America offering a myriad of exhilarating activities, over a thousand years of history, astonishing wild life, and breathtaking natural scenery. The region’s capital – St. John’s city, offers a wealth of many natural and historical sites like the first lighthouse in Canada at Cape Spear, Signal Hill Historical Park, Cathedral of St. John the Baptist, Johnson Geo Centre, The Rooms Museum archive and art gallery, and one of the oldest streets within North America – George and Water Streets that has been a sailor’s rendezvous for many decades where there are many shops, restaurants, and pubs.
Outside St. John’s the rugged outdoors with diverse landscape with majestic mountain ranges, rocky coastlines, 55 marked hiking trails, more than 80 provincial parks, abundant wildlife, the amazing view of the Northern Lights at Labrador, glaciered fjords, six kinds of icebergs, skiing down Marble Mountain slopes, plus 22 different types of whales are just some of the reasons why tourists and adventure seekers come to Newfoundland and Labrador. Avalon Peninsula’s Cape St. Mary’s Ecological Reserve, Witless Bay Ecological reserve, Brigus Village, Harbour Grace Museum, the UNESCO World Heritage site Gros Morne National Park and L’Anse aux Meadows (where the Vikings settled over a thousand years ago), the Fjords by Western Brook Pond, and the beaches of Northern Bay Sands are also must see places in Newfoundland.
The tourist peak season is during summertime but Newfoundland and Labrador is fast becoming a winter-sports and skiing destination and several skiing resorts have opened in the past couple of decades. If you want to go fishing, hunting, hiking, kayaking, and enjoy natural wonders to the fullest then the best time to visit Newfoundland is during the months of Apr-Aug (spring-summer) when the temperature is at its mildest and when most of the cultural events and music festivals are being held.
