Newfoundland & Labrador Holidays

Newfoundland and Labrador holidays open up a province full of history, where awe-inspiring nature reigns supreme, and incredible wildlife roam the mountains and swim along the dramatic coastline. Here, you’ll find fishing villages and colourful cities, home to hospitable locals, and sites that speak of the province’s rich heritage. 

At Gros Morne National Park on Newfoundland’s west coast, you’ll find a dramatic landscape shaped over many years. Here, you can walk across the Tablelands, hearing the sound of the red rock, that of the earth’s exposed mantle, crunch beneath your feet.

See incredible coastal wonders at Green Gardens, and explore the freshwater of the stunning Western Brook Pond by boat. 

For a glimpse of what life was once like in this stunning part of Canada, explore the Viking Encampment at L’Anse aux Meadows, or visit Bonavista, the seafront town where Italian explorer John Cabot first touched down when he discovered the North American coastline.

Discover Newfoundland and Labrador’s Historic Capital

Spend a few lazy days discovering the charming streets of St. Johns, Newfoundland and Labrador’s historic capital city, which sits on the oceanfront. 

St. Johns is a city defined by its friendly locals, incredible seafood and the colourful houses of Jellybean Row. Head up to Cabot Tower, perched on the Signal Hill National Historic site and gaze out over the calmness of the city resting beside the enthralling Atlantic Ocean. Experience the mightiness of the ocean at Cape Spear, the easternmost tip of North America that is just a short drive from the city. You can also visit the nearby picturesque fishing village of Quidi Vidi.

There’s even more to maritime heritage and much more stunning coastline to discover on Canada’s Atlantic Coast, so why not journey onto the neighbouring provinces of Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, and Prince Edward Island?
