Highlights from your trip

Newfoundland and Labrador travel guide

4.6
Lighthouses · Historic Walking Areas · Dolphin & Whale Watching
Canada's easternmost province of Newfoundland and Labrador encompasses a varied landscape of rugged sea cliffs, secret fjords, majestic mountains, and small settlements with wooden homes precariously perched right on the edge of the sea. First Europeans visitors were probably the Vikings, but today's travelers on tour of Newfoundland and Labrador come from every corner of the globe. Geographically, Canada starts here, so it makes perfect sense to begin your Canuck adventure by exploring some of the nearly 18,000 km (11,000 mi) of the province's coastline. Plan to spend a good deal of your Newfoundland and Labrador holiday looking for humpback whales, spotting hundreds of different seabirds, and discovering ancient icebergs floating by quaint fishing settlements.
