discover rural Newfoundland!

HI-Trinity Newfoundland is situated at the heart of the Newfoundland Discovery Trail! In the beautiful fishing village of Trinity East, HI Trinity Newfoundland is the perfect destination for coastal hikes, sea kayaking, whale watching, and icebergs!

For those interested in a relaxing get away, HI-Trinity Newfoundland is located just outside the historic merchant town of Trinity, the abandoned community of British Harbour, and the Rising Tide Theatre, an award winning theatre company that offers a "blend of drama, culture, and history".

We offer a shuttle service around the area for those traveling on foot, full laundry facilities, breakfast in the price and additional baked goods for purchase when available, and moose in the garden!

We're the perfect place to visit, whether you're excited about taking on the Atlantic in a tiny kayak, or challenging yourself on the beautiful local hikes, or you'd just like to relax, have a cup of tea, and watch an iceberg float by.

After spending a summer here we simply fell in love with Newfoundland, for the ocean, the hills, the wildlife, and the wonderfully warm locals, we invite you to come and fall in love too.



Just 30 minutes up the road from HI Trinity Newfoundland is an enormous puffin colony. Visitors are able to walk to the edge of the cliff face to watch these sea birds in their natural habitat.
