Your guide to Newfoundland and Labrador
Welcome to Newfoundland and Labrador
Canada’s province of Newfoundland and Labrador is one big place, spanning more than 405,000 square kilometres (157,000 square miles) of rocky coastline, dense forests, and maritime landscapes. Newfoundland is an island between the Gulf of St. Lawrence and the Atlantic Ocean, while the more remote Labrador borders Quebec on the Canadian mainland. The province didn’t become part of Canada until 1949, and it can still feel like a different country, with its distinctive accents, music, and quirky local customs — you’ll want to get “screeched in” as an honorary Newfoundlander.
Outdoors, you can spot massive icebergs along “Iceberg Alley,” go whale watching or seabird scouting, and explore the dramatic fjords of Gros Morne National Park. There are scores of hiking trails and many days’ worth of road-trip adventures.
Labrador has a significant Indigenous population, with Innu and Inuit communities offering various experiences for visitors. You can even visit France — the French islands of Saint Pierre and Miquelon are just an hour by ferry from Newfoundland’s south coast.
How do I get around Newfoundland and Labrador?
St. John’s International Airport (YYT), in the provincial capital, is Newfoundland and Labrador’s main airport. Consider connecting into a smaller regional airport, such as Deer Lake Regional Airport (YDF), which serves Western Newfoundland, or Gander International Airport (YQX) in Central Newfoundland, if you’re travelling to other parts of the province. In Labrador, Wabash Airport (YWK) is located in Labrador City, and Goose Bay Airport (YYR) serves Eastern Labrador. Another option to get to the province is to take a car ferry between Nova Scotia and Newfoundland. A year-round ferry links North Sydney, NS, with Channel-Port aux Basques in Newfoundland’s southwest, and a summer ferry connects North Sydney with Argentia on the Avalon Peninsula, closer to St. John’s. Another car ferry connects Newfoundland with Labrador. You can also reach Labrador by land, on an epic road trip from Quebec’s Côte Nord region. Once you’ve arrived in the province, driving is the best way to get around, although local bus services do exist. Just remember that distances between many destinations are quite long.
When is the best time to stay in a vacation rental in Newfoundland and Labrador?
Most travellers to Newfoundland and Labrador visit between late spring and early autumn. Peak season for viewing the icebergs that pass through Newfoundland’s waters is late May and early June (there’s even an Iceberg Festival held in June at the island’s northern tip), although icebergs can be visible in various areas between April and August. For whale watching, visit between May and September. Newfoundland’s maritime climate is relatively temperate, with average temperatures of 16 degrees Celsius in summer and 0 degrees Celsius during the winter. Labrador’s weather is more extreme: much hotter in the summertime and much colder in winter.
What are the top things to do in Newfoundland and Labrador?
With colorful row houses along its narrow streets and terraced into the hills, the provincial capital and largest city, St. John’s, makes a good starting point for a Newfoundland trip. Tour its historic sights, visit its small museums, and raise a pint in the pubs.
While Newfoundland has plenty of places where you can see icebergs, whales, and seabirds, Twillingate, a five-hour drive north of St. John’s, is one of the more accessible areas. Book a boat tour, take a whale-watching cruise, or go kayaking. Take in the views from the top of the Long Point Lighthouse, follow the hiking trails along the coast, and check out the local winery, which blends its fruit wines with iceberg water.
Gros Morne National Park
Explore the mountains, fjords, sandy beaches, and unusual Tablelands of Gros Morne National Park, which extends across 1,805 square kilometres (700 square miles) on the Western Newfoundland coast. The park has more than 100 kilometres (60 miles) of hiking trails through rugged wilderness terrain, and you can kayak on inland lakes, through the waterways, and along the bays.
