Explore Newfoundland & Labrador

Canada's rugged East Coast outpost

On Canada's eastern edge, Newfoundland & Labrador stand guard at the edge of the Atlantic Ocean. Explore fishing villages and catch glimpses of whales, icebergs and wildlife. Newfoundlanders are a warm bunch, and they’re all too happy to make you an honourary Newfoundlander with a good old-fashioned screech-in at a legendary kitchen party.

Newfoundland & Labrador is known for

  • Craft beer
  • Folk music
  • Moose
  • Icebergs
  • Cliffs

What People Love About This Province

  • Active fishing villages and lifestyles that harken back to older times
  • Rugged coastline cliffs dotted with lighthouses
  • The Newfie twang
  • The colourful houses of St. John's (aka Jellybean Row)
  • Incredible seafood fresh from the ocean
