Province of Newfoundland and Labrador Favorites

  • Nice and clean

    Was there only for a short time and took a bus tour. Nice place to visit and very clean city. Beautiful parks and mountains. Apparently the weather is fair in winter because of the maritime climate,

  • When is the best time to visit...

    Picking the best month to visit Newfoundland is a challenge. We try and stay away from the Maritimes in July or August as we have been told that there is no room at the B&B's or motels. That leaves June or September. October to May is not very good as most attractions are closed thenWe chose September - the weather was quite good - except for a...

  • Map of Newfoundland Trip

    This map shows our route from Nova Scotia to Newfoundland, with the ferry docking in Port aux Basques. From there, we drove up the west coast to the Port au Port Peninsula for our first night. After continuing north through Corner Brook and Deer Lake, we turned west into Gros Morne National Park, where we spent two nights as we enjoyed the...

  • Fishermen & the sea

    In Newfoundland, the locals are still very much dependent on the sea to make a living by catching fishes and other seafood off the rich waters near Newfoundland. As such, you will be able to see many fishing boats, fishermen and towns located near the sea etc. This is perhaps one of the charms and simplicity of Newfoundland.

  • Irving Big Stop & other petrol stations

    In Newfoundland, petrol stations along the Trans-Canadian Highway plays an important role as a one stop centre for everything. There are convenient stores, restaurants, pubs etc here, but more importantly these petrol stations act as stops for the DRL Coachlines which runs across the island from Port Aux Basque to St John's. One of the most...

  • Sunrise in Newfoundland

    One of my fondest memories was being able to see a beautiful sunrise when I was at Gros Morne National Park.

  • Big trucks

    Although there are not much vehicles on the roads of Newfoundland, a significant number of trucks move along these roads (especially the Trans-Canadian Highway) carrying timber, goods etc.

  • Terrain of Newfoundland

    Newfoundland is a relatively flat island which is sparsely populated. There are many lakes on the island, and it is mostly covered by trees. A lot of wild animals such as the brown bear, moose, caribou lives here. Please view the photos in the travelogue section of this VT page to have a better idea of the island.

    This is just a quick tip but I think a good one.In the fall in cenral Labrador you get nice temperatures at 10 to 15 degrees celsius.There are no flies and I love the fall colors.There is a great picture that I took in October in central Labrador near Happy Valley - Goose Bay, along the Trans Labrador Highway.I hope you enjoy your own experience...

  • Bell Island, Newfoundland

    A great side excursion if you are in the capital city area of St. John's is over to Bell Island. There is a lot of history in this area and it makes for a fun half day trip. You have to take a 20 minute ferry ride and over on the island there are lots of places to explore.One of the main attractions is the underground mine tour that accounts for...

  • Labrador and Newfoundland's Capital City

    The Capital City of the province of Newfoundland and Labrador is St. John's. Newfoundland and Labrador by the way is the proper order of words for this province. I sometime like to say Labrador and Newfoundland just because in this section I am highlighting the Labrador region as a great place to visit.St. John's is a much more urban environment...

  • Partridge Berries and Bakeapples

    Native berries in Newfoundland, you will find lots of pots of jam, preserves and desserts in restaurants made from the deep red tart partridge berries, and the orangey yellow sweet bakeapples. Bakeapples are a bit more expensive as they are harder to get but really yummy. Partidge berries are sort of a cross between blueberries and cranberries,...

  • Climb Gros Morne!

    When climbing Gros Morne, one initially goes through some short, stunted (krummholz) forest. The trees' growth is influenced by the cold temperatures and ocean winds. After awhile, one exits the trees to face the mountain. The next stage is a 'scree' slope of loose rock. After scrambling up the scree slope, one finally arrives at the top.

  • Go to Gros Morne Park Visitor Centre

    The Gros Morne Park Visitor Centre is a useful way to start your visit to Gros Morne Park. They have quite a bit of information about the park and the lands within it. In addition, they post information about the current and predicted weather - always useful if you're planning a hike.

  • Bird watching tour by boat

    While in St. John's we also took a bird-watching tour out of Bay Bulls, 45 minutes to the south. It was fascinating to see the thousands of sea birds that nest on the uninhabitated (by humans) islands just off the coast. We didn't land on these islands, just looked at them from the boat. I'm not sure we would have wanted to land - the islands were...

  • Go to Gros Morne National Park

    You shouldn't miss Gros Morne National Park if you're on the West Coast of Newfoundland. The mountains and forests are wonderful. The Tablelands, also part of the park, are ancient seabed that has been lifted up through plate tectonics. The area is full of heavy metals, so little grows there. It is fascinating.

  • See the whale sculpture near...

    This whale sculpture was near the Confederation Building in central St. John's. It was also near the campground in the middle of the city. Very convenient when we were there in August 1991. The Confederation Building is the provincial legislature.

  • Go see wildlife.

    We saw this Bald Eagle in the Salmonier Nature Park on the Avalon Peninsula while in Newfoundland in August 1991.

  • See unique flora.

    We saw this Pitcher Plant, a carnivorous flower, on the Avalon Peninsula in August 1991. Very interesting. (The lens cap helps provide a sense of scale.)

  • Viking ship

    One of the neatest things we were able to see while in Newfoundland in August 1991, was this replica Viking ship that was in St. John's on its way from Norway to L'Anse aux Meadows to New York City and the UN, on a voyage of ecological apology and awareness. These fellows had the advantage of GPS and maps over their Norse forbears!

  • Have a look around the Avalon Peninsula.

    During our trip out of St. John's around the Avalon Peninsula in August 1991, we stopped for a look at the Salmonier Nature Park. There we had the opportunity to see quite a bit of wildlife: eagles, caribou, snowy owls, etc. It was quite good and involved a bit of a walk, too.
