Cabot Tower, St. John's Newfoundland

Newfoundland & Labrador

Newfoundland tailor-made holidays

Introduction

Explore one of the most striking national parks in Canada found on the Northern Peninsula of Newfoundland. Watch icebergs drift by from the coastline and try whale watching from one of the bays.

The Long Range Mountains of Gros Morne National Park overlook fjords that attract a large numbers of wildlife to admire. Feel the spray from the waterfalls on a boat tour along the fjords or try a scenic hike through the park. Enjoy trails through this UNESCO World Heritage Site and admire the geological history of the Tablelands area. Here you'll find an illustration of continental drift that reveals the earth's mantle following the collision of North American and African Plates.

In contrast to this, Terra Nova National Park features bays and inlets with rolling hills and an underwater video feed that broadcasts activity on the seafloor.

Vast wilderness surrounds the iron-mining town of Labrador City. The addition of lakes and rivers make a brilliant playground for hunters and anglers as well as tourists looking to spot herds of caribou.

Alternatively you can explore the provinces for signs of their early settlers that include Archaic Indians, Dorset Eskimos and Vikings. Visit St John's to learn more about the Italian explorer John Cabot. Admire historic sites in the Labrador Straights and Nain as well as the impressive hydroelectric power station at Churchill Falls.
