As Premier of Newfoundland and Labrador, I may be a bit biased when I say that this province is one of the most magical places on earth. But I hear the same from people who have visited. Our breathtaking scenery and rich, vibrant culture are an endless supply of inspiration. Maybe that’s why our province is home to such a unique and colourful community of storytellers. Writers, musicians, filmmakers, comedians, dancers, actors, craftspeople, and visual and performance artists. They are as much a part of our landscape as the rugged cliffs and windswept hills. This year, we’re celebrating the creative community. 2024 is Year of the Arts in Newfoundland and Labrador. With festivals, events, and special performances, it’s the perfect time to visit and share in our art, culture, and heritage. So come and meet some of our storytellers. I’m sure you’ll leave with a few stories of your own. The Honourable Dr. Andrew Furey Premier of Newfoundland and Labrador

How to Plan Your Trip This guide will be your information source to help plan your visit and assist you during your stay. There may be times when you truly want to get lost in this land, but to help you find your way, we have divided the guide into five geographic regions (page 9).

Do-it-yourself travel You’ll find the regions colour-coded for easy identification. Within each of the five regions you’ll find a brief overview and the following sections: Sample Itinerary, Best Kept Secrets, Road Trips, Accommodations, Attractions & Adventures, and Shops & Galleries. A grid-referenced map and index accompanies each region, which allows you to search for things to do or places to go in four different ways: by map coordinate, by category of activity, by driving route, and by community. Every effort has been made to verify the contents of this guide prior to printing. However, travellers are encouraged to check for additional updates on NewfoundlandLabrador.com and confirm details with individual operators prior to and during travel.

Package tours Interested in visiting Newfoundland and Labrador but don’t want to worry about the details? Then a package tour is just right for you. Contact one of the tour operators listed on page 436 to start planning your vacation.

Driving Tips Signage With over 29,000 kilometres of pristine, rugged coastline, there’s plenty of room to find yourself – or lose yourself for that matter. But when you have a specific destination in mind, you need to know how to get there. The province has developed a new signage system to help you find your way. We are phasing in TouristOriented Directional Signage – an internationally-recognized system based on well-known symbols. With this

guidance, travellers will be able to arrive at their favourite attractions with ease. Book your vehicle ahead Whether you’re here for fresh air, colourful houses, or something more intangible, the last thing you want to be searching for is something to drive. Which is why it’s a good idea to make car rental reservations before you travel. While this place certainly is off the beaten path, lots of people want to get lost and found at the very same time as you. Besides, booking ahead means you get to travel when you want, exactly how you want. And what could be better than that?

Is it possible to feel lost and found at the same time? “The traveller sees what he sees. The tourist sees what he has come to see.” – G.K. Chesterton Some might argue Mr. Chesterton was just being overly fussy – that this is a distinction without a difference. Those people aren’t travellers. You see, tourists know what they are looking for long before they know what’s really here. A knowable, containable, and packageable experience. But these are mere parts of the puzzle. A traveller, on the other hand, seeks the truth of a place, the essence that can only be appreciated by seeing the puzzle as a whole. Wildlife? Check. History? Of course. Amazing vistas? In spades. And culture? We speak more dialects of English than the English do. This is a place where turquoise and lime green houses make amiable neighbours on steep city streets and in snug little harbours. Where fresh air ripples freely through tiny gardens and sprawling barrens, finding its way to open windows. Bringing with it a renewed sense of possibility as sweet as the air itself. But these are only elements of what makes this place truly unforgettable. And therein lies the magic of this mysterious land. To find what you are looking for, you must first be willing to let go of expectations, to really lose yourself. And then, there you will be. Lost. And found.

With 35 million seabirds this close, binoculars are optional. With over 350 species of birds, it’s no surprise that Newfoundland and Labrador is a major birdwatching destination. In fact, this place is known as the Seabird Capital of North America. Wherever you turn, you’ll have plenty of chances to get up close and personal with over 35 million seabirds, including 25,000 gannets, 500,000 puffins, and 7 million storm petrels. So close, you can leave your binoculars at home. Umbrellas, however, may be required.

Every year 10,000 whales get front row seats to go people watching. When you think about it, it makes sense that Newfoundland and Labrador is the destination of choice for the world’s largest concentration of humpback whales. After all, this place is home to 29,000 kilometres of dramatic coastline that provide plenty of snacks for our aquatic visitors. Every summer, from May to August, you can catch 22 different species of whales frolicking in the ocean, breaching the surface and spouting near the shore. The best part? No matter how many you see, each one still seems larger than life.

Whale Watching Hot Spots

How to Watch You can experience these majestic animals from the rail of a tour boat, the seat of your kayak, or while hiking along a coastal trail.

It’s easy to see the beauty of our planet. The real wonders require you to dig a little deeper. The story of life on Earth began billions of years ago, and some of the greatest narrators of this tale are the rocks of Newfoundland and Labrador. Our geological marvels aren’t stowed away behind glass or hidden beneath deep layers of rock. Here you can see and even touch some of the most fascinating and rarest phenomena on the planet. At Mistaken Point Ecological Reserve, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, fossil discoveries shaped our understanding of evolution. Gros Morne offers opportunities to walk atop the Earth’s mantle, tour inland fjords carved by massive glaciers, and marvel at volcanic sea stacks. And the Discovery UNESCO Global Geopark is a time machine that can bring you back a half-a-billion years.

The Tablelands

Outdoor adventure, one trail at a time. With over 200 hiking and walking trails to explore, you can quite literally spend your entire journey on your feet. The East Coast Trail and the International Appalachian Trail headline the 200 hiking and walking trails that lead to stunning views of whales, icebergs, and long stretches of unspoiled nature and wilderness. Not to mention an abundance of breathing room. When you’re hiking in a place that’s off the beaten path, you never know what you’ll find. It might even be yourself.

26 | For more info call 1-800-563-6353


Choose Your Adventure Whether you’re looking for a casual stroll or a challenging trek, you’ll find many trails to choose from. The East Coast Trail offers a wide variety, including an easy path to the abandoned fishing village of La Manche. The moderately difficult, 4.8-km Rockcut Twillingate Lower Little Harbour Trail takes you to a resettled community and a 30-foot natural arch. On the Bonavista Peninsula, the Hike Discovery Trail Network will bring you to sea stacks, towering cliffs, and rugged coastlines. And for an extreme experience, Labrador’s Torngat Mountains National Park boasts 9,700 square kilometres of untouched wilderness and some of the highest mountains in eastern North America.

10,000 years later, they find their way to Iceberg Alley. We don’t suggest you wait that long. When it comes to icebergs, there’s no better place to catch a glimpse than right here. Oftentimes during spring and summer, thousands of frozen giants drift past our shores in search of inlets, coves, and bays. Carved from 10,000-year-old glaciers, they come in all shapes and sizes. You’ll find them making their way, entirely at their leisure, down an ancient path called Iceberg Alley. Careful never to stay in one place too long, their presence creates an ever-changing landscape. One you won’t want to miss. For updated locations on icebergs travelling along the coast of Newfoundland and Labrador visit icebergfinder.com

How to Watch During spring and summer you may be lucky enough to view icebergs by taking a boat tour, going sea kayaking, or even from land along a coastal trail.

St. John’s

There’s no shortage of reasons to celebrate, perhaps just a shortage of time. While this place is always chock-full of reasons to have fun, you’ll find this is especially true during the summer months. It’s a time when everyone comes together to share a laugh, sample fresh local cuisine, and get swept away by lively local music. There are hundreds of diverse festivals and events that embrace everything from film, dance, and music, to blueberries, squid, and mussel beds. Whatever the reason, there are tons of ways to celebrate the unique culture and heritage of this place while you meet new friends, or get reacquainted with old ones. For a complete list of festivals and events taking place throughout the province, visit NewfoundlandLabrador.com/FestivalsEvents

Coast-to-Coast Entertainment When the sun goes down, this place goes up. In Trinity, Gander, Grand Falls-Windsor, Stephenville, and Grand Bank, our thespians tread the boards in productions ranging from comedy and Shakespeare to Broadway and stories that are all our own. In Gros Morne National Park, take in a lively literary festival, plus theatrical performances and music. Corner Brook also offers a range of music and theatre. Twillingate is always rollicking with dinner theatre, as is Ferryland, where there’s a wee bit of Irish wit and devilment on display. Visit L’Anse aux Meadows National Historic Site and experience the exciting Viking re-enactments. St. John’s has music, dance, film, ghost walks, and yarns. From Bay Roberts to Clarenville to Happy ValleyGoose Bay, keep an eye and an ear out for local talent and a good time.

Best Excuses to Celebrate 1. Trails, Tales and Tunes Festival (May 17-26, Norris Point) 2. Mussel Bed Waterfront Festival Soiree (Aug 7-12, Lewisporte) 3.

Battle Harbour

You’d be a great storyteller too, if you had thousands of years of practice. Out here, you’ll find history around every corner. In fact, there isn’t a rock, cliff, or cave without a story attached. Take the Vikings, for example, our first European settlers. They landed at L’Anse aux Meadows a thousand years ago. And then there’s John Cabot. He dropped anchor in Bonavista back in 1497 and declared it the New World. Tales of our past visitors are all around, and some of the best places to discover them are the 9 national historic sites, 13 provincial historic sites, 4 UNESCO world heritage sites, and 150 community museums you’ll find here. Chances are, you’ll uncover a few stories of your own along the way.

Let someone else worry about the details. Making your own way is sometimes exactly what’s called for, especially if you’re interested in finding – or losing – yourself along the way. But if you’d rather travel here without having to worry about the details, there are many package tours to bring you to Newfoundland and Labrador. If you’re looking for a group motorcoach tour, an all-inclusive fly-drive holiday, or a cruise vacation, you’ll find something to suit your interests. The best thing to do is call a Newfoundland and Labrador tour operator. Many of their packages can be tailored for you, whether it’s watching whales chase icebergs from your kayak, biking the Irish Loop, walking or hiking the coastal trails, or just relaxing in a spa by the sea. See page 436 for more information on these tour operators.

Western Brook Pond, Gros Morne National Park, UNESCO World Heritage Site

Visit NewfoundlandLabrador.com | 41


West by Nature Our version of western medicine. With ancient mountains, fjords, and thousands of miles of coastline, this wild and rugged region sports abundant breathing room and diverse natural heritage, not to mention a pair of UNESCO World Heritage Sites. The first, spanning 1,805 square kilometres, is Gros Morne National Park. It boasts more than 100 kilometres of hiking trails, many passing through the towering Long Range Mountains and the unique Tablelands. The other, L’Anse aux Meadows National Historic Site, the first European settlement of the New World, features a reconstructed Viking village that offers a glimpse into the life of Nordic visitors a thousand years ago. For a truly out-of-this-world experience, the International Appalachian Trail is a can’t-miss. The trail stretches from Mount Katahdin, Maine, through eastern Canada and across western Newfoundland and Labrador before extending into Europe. Western Newfoundland also boasts conservation areas like the Codroy Valley International Wetlands, where you can watch wildlife like moose, caribou, and migratory birds. While this region may seem larger than life, there are plenty of ways to take it all in. Spend a day hiking or kayaking around the coast. Looking to relax? Kick back on one of the many secluded sandy beaches.

Green Gardens, Gros Morne National Park, UNESCO World Heritage Site

Western Visit NewfoundlandLabrador.com | 43


Your Western journey starts here. Western is full of stunning terrain and fascinating history with two UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Stand where the Vikings stood over 1,000 years ago, or explore the geological masterpiece that is Gros Morne National Park. Learn about the exciting career of Captain James Cook, and then drive along the French Shore for a deliciously musical experience. Then, feel free as a bird as you stare up at feathered friends on the southwest coast.

FESTIVALS, FOOTPATHS, AND FJORDS

Choose from over 100 kilometres of trails for hikers and walkers of all abilities and interests. Hike along the moonscape called the Tablelands– gigantic peridotite rocks that were once part of the Earth’s mantle. Or choose Green Gardens, a more challenging trek through a boreal forest leading to a fertile volcanic seacoast.

DAY 1 Start your western journey at the natural wonder that is Gros Morne National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Pop into the Discovery Centre in Woody Point and get a brief introduction to this earthly marvel. Then it’s time to lace up your shoes for some unforgettable hiking.

44 | For more info call 1-800-563-6353

Now it’s back to Woody Point, a charming village with a Registered Heritage District full of quaint galleries, craft boutiques, and restaurants with mouthwatering local cuisine. Before calling it a night, be sure to check out some of the evening entertainment for a toe-tapping time.

THE ARCHES AND THE ANCIENT DAY 4 Start your day by visiting Arches Provincial Park, just a short drive from Cow Head.

The last stop of the day is Port au Choix National Historic Site. Witness relics of Maritime Archaic, Dorset and Groswater People, and Recent Amerindian cultures as they learned to live and thrive in this rugged place many years ago. After exploring the exhibits, take a walk along the coastal trails and scan the waves for seals and whales.

DAY 2 When you take the boat tour into Western Brook Pond and float through the majestic glacier-carved fjord, you’ll feel like you’ve entered another world. A 2,000-foot-high waterfall cascades down the Long Range Mountains – part of the Appalachian chain. The boat launch is a 45-minute walk down a picturesque nature trail filled with plant life and curious creatures.


DAY 5 Today it’s all about the Vikings. Just over 1,000 years ago, the first European settlement was built in North America, a place now called L’Anse aux Meadows – both a National Historic Site and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Reconstructed sod huts “inhabited” by costumed interpreters help bring this historical place back to life. Next, drive to Conche on the east side of the peninsula where the French Shore Interpretation Centre houses an incredible 222-foot tapestry depicting the history of the area.

DAY 6 Hop on a tour boat in St. Anthony and start your day by watching frolicking whales and majestic 10,000-year-old icebergs. Gaze on as these larger-thanlife spectacles put on a show. When you’re back on dry land, be sure to drop by the Grenfell Historic Properties and discover how Dr. Grenfell brought modern medical care to remote coastal communities more than a century ago.

A ROAD TRIP SOUTH DAY 7 About a half an hour south of Deer Lake, the city of Corner Brook overlooks the scenic inner Bay of Islands. Take the day to road trip along the north and south shores looking for adventures – of which there are many. Try traditional dory fishing or salmon fishing, ATVing, kayaking or SUP, or take a hike on one of the many walking and hiking trails. In the evening, eat a home-cooked meal while taking in local entertainment.

DAY 8 Almost an hour south of Corner Brook is the Port au Port Peninsula. It’s here, in southwestern Newfoundland, that many French-speaking Newfoundlanders call home. Explore the unique culture of the region and be sure to try a slice of traditional French baked bread slathered in local jam. In the evening, catch a show at the Stephenville Theatre Festival – a treat for all performance enthusiasts.

Arches Provincial Park

Western Itinerary

Venture south for a ride along Routes 404 or 405, where expansive meadows, scattered with trails, border the edges of the coast – perfect for walking, biking, or riding an ATV. Next stop is the gorgeous farmland of the Codroy Valley, where the surrounding wetlands are internationally recognized as an

integral spot for migrating birds. Then it’s on to Port aux Basques where the mountains meet the sea, and then to Rose Blanche where a magnificent granite lighthouse stands guard. Built in 1871 from a nearby quarry, this historic site is a must-see for all lighthouse lovers.

SCENIC SIDE TRIP If you have a few extra days, visit Newfoundland’s south coast and take a trip to Burgeo. Start out on Route 480 and travel through the pristine boreal forest. Then turn south where the land is otherworldly in appearance, swimming with glacial erratics and shallow ponds. After two hours on this breathtaking drive, you’ll arrive in a small seaside town bordered by Sandbanks Provincial Park. Walk along the four sandy beaches and take in the fresh sea air while the mist from the ocean delicately sprinkles your face. Then, take a short ferry ride to Ramea Island for a truly authentic outport experience. Don’t be surprised if you leave with a few new stories, and a few more friends.

Sandbanks Provincial Park in Burgeo offers kilometres of sandy beaches and walking trails. From Burgeo, you can travel via ferry to remote communities along the south coast. The ferry to the island of Ramea operates several times a week. Take a stroll along one of the walking trails and check out the community’s wind turbines. From Burgeo you can also take the passenger-only ferry to the community of Francois. The ferry ride itself is a picturesque full-day journey, and it’s not uncommon to see dolphins swimming alongside the bow of the boat or sunfish basking on the water’s surface. Francois is home to multiple fishing and climbing opportunities, as well as several hiking trails offering spectacular views of the fjord. This remote pocket of the island provides a peaceful respite from the outside world, and the wildlife knows this too – birdwatching and wildlife viewing opportunities are abundant.

A 15-minute drive north of ChannelPort aux Basques you’ll find Grand Bay West and J.T. Cheeseman Provincial Park – nesting sites of the endangered piping plover. Please pay close attention to the exclusion signs that mark their territory. Southwest Newfoundland is an excellent birding location. Not only is it on the flyway of many migrating species, but the area’s beaches, marshes, and estuaries – such as the Codroy Valley International Wetlands – provide excellent refuge and food. This area has some of the island’s best farmland, settled generations ago by Scots who brought with them place names like St. Andrew’s, and further north off Routes 404 and 405, Highlands and Lochleven. Cape Anguille is worth a visit while you’re in the area for some of the best sunsets on the island. The mountains just north of the Codroy Valley and west of Route 1 are famed for their winds. When the trains passed through here, the railway employed Lauchie McDougall to warn of high winds from Table Mountain. Those 160 km-per-hour gusts could blow a train from the narrow gauge tracks. Today, both Lauchie and the railway are gone, and truckers rely on cellphones to find out when the wind is up. There are several world-class hiking trails here, including the moderate, 5.1-km Starlite Trail to the top of the Long Range Mountains. The trailhead is on Route 1 near Route 407. For a coastal trail with a mountainous backdrop, the moderate, 5.5-km Coastangs Trail

Off the main highway and onto Routes 404 and 405 you’ll find some great salmon fishing in streams like the Crabbes and Robinsons rivers. The sandy trails that edge coastal meadows in the quiet communities provide fine lookouts over Bay St. George South. Join an ATV tour and explore backcountry trails while learning about the area’s pirate history. Legend has it, there’s treasure buried here. Excellent fishing can also be found further north at Flat Bay Brook.

Caribou Trail Start: Barachois Pond Provincial Park Length: About 150 km. Optional ferry crossings from 75 minutes to 3 hours.

The largest park in the provincial system, Barachois Pond has excellent outdoor recreation facilities and a large campground. Walk the Erin Mountain Trail, beginning with a boardwalk and leading to a lookout over Barachois Pond. The upper part of the trail climbs 340 metres and offers views over Bay St. George, the Gulf of St. Lawrence, and the Long Range Mountains. For a change of scenery, leave the coast and drive through the interior along Route 480. The route snakes Visit NewfoundlandLabrador.com | 65

The endangered Piping Plover nests here, so please exercise caution and pay attention to signage. From Burgeo, take the ferry to nearby Ramea. From here, leave your car behind and take a day trip to communities further east like Grey River and Francois, where there are no cars, and roads are replaced by boardwalks.

Learn about the history of the French Shore at one of the many local museums. At the very tip of the peninsula is Park Boutte du Cap, home to the only monument in the province to French Acadians expelled from the area by the British. This park has a traditional bread oven available for public use, with frequent demonstrations and bread tastings.

Captain Cook’s Trail Start: Corner Brook Length: About 54 km

French Ancestors Route / La route des ancêtres français Start: Stephenville Crossing Length: About 240 km

Newfoundland only gained control over the west coast in 1904. Prior to that, it was known as the French Shore, because France had exclusive fishing rights there. Today, many French place names remain, and the Stephenville-Port au Port Peninsula area is still the hub of French Newfoundland culture. Reach it via Route 460 or 490. Stephenville was once known for its American airbase. Reach back into history at the Stephenville Regional Museum, which celebrates the traditions and culture of the area. On the Port au Port Peninsula, drop by the francophone folk festival and hear tunes passed down from generation to generation. For a breath of fresh air, hike Danny’s Trail, starting at the Port au Port isthmus, where it’s believed that Jacques Cartier landed in 1534. This trail has views of the bay and the Long Range Mountains, with interesting rock formations, beaches, and coves.

Yes, the Captain James Cook. Before he became a famous South Seas explorer, Cook refined his cartographic skills along the coast of Newfoundland in the 1760s. His charts of the Bay of Islands are – remarkably – still accurate enough to be used today. A statue in his honour overlooks the bay from Corner Brook, the largest city on the west coast. The scenic drive along the south shore of the Bay of Islands on Route 450 to Lark Harbour is a treat for the eyes. You’ll also find some of the island’s best hiking here. One such route is the popular Blow Me Down Mountain Trail, part of the International Appalachian Trail. Blow Me Down Provincial Park has even more world-class hiking, including the scenic Lark Harbour Head Trail, where a lookout provides endless views of the Bay of Islands. On your descent, you’ll tackle the Governor’s Staircase – a wooden staircase embedded into a 450-million-year-old wall of volcanic rock.

Humber Valley Start: Corner Brook Length: About 57 km

Nestled in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains, the Humber Valley follows the Humber River from the city of Corner Brook to Deer Lake. The area is particularly striking in the fall, when the tree-fringed slopes turn vermilion, amber, and gold. At the Historic Train Site, see the collection of narrow gauge rolling stock from the Newfoundland Railway. The Corner Brook Museum and Archives celebrate the history and culture of the region. Take in exhibits by established and emerging artists at the Rotary Arts Centre, and spend some time on West Street, lined with restaurants, cafés, and

Sir Hugh Palliser was a governor of Newfoundland in the 18th century and the man who sent Captain Cook to survey the west coast. The highway named after him, Route 440, traces the north shore of the Bay of Islands into an area great for ocean fishing, hiking, and birdwatching. A tour will give you a more in-depth experience, and plenty of interaction with the locals. Learn how to catch and fillet cod in Cox’s Cove, and pair the experience with a seafood boil-up and a farm-to-table feast. If you’re lucky enough to be here in the winter, try some guided ice fishing or join a snowmobiling tour.

craft breweries. For unique views, stroll the Corner Brook Stream Trail. Legend says the Spanish buried a treasure on Shellbird Island in the Humber River. Look closely – there’s an old man’s face in a rock formation which overlooks the island, said to be a marker for the treasure. The 5-km Man in the Mountain Trail leads to its rocky summit. Marble Mountain in Steady Brook gets an average of 16 feet of snow every winter and is one of the best ski hills in eastern Canada. There’s a lodge and accommodations at the base of the hill. Take a snowmobiling tour on the area’s groomed trails, or try ziplining – yes, even in winter. Spend a day kayaking or stand-up paddling, or tee off at an award-winning golf course. Take a mountain biking tour or explore the area’s hidden cave system. Connect with a local guide for a day of angling on the Humber River, one of the best Atlantic salmon rivers on the planet. In Deer Lake, get acquainted with the colourful creatures at the Newfoundland Insectarium, or hit the Walking Trails of Deer Lake – one path will lead you to sandy Deer Lake Beach.

Admiral Palliser’s Trail


Mere words cannot paint the picture that is Gros Morne. It is one of those rare places that reaches right into your soul. It was here that geologists discovered that trilobite fossils of the area differed from those in eastern Newfoundland and resembled those found in Spain and North Africa, helping to make the case for plate tectonics. Plus there’s the Tablelands, a mesa-like formation of a rock type usually found deep in the earth. This is one of a handful of places where it’s been pushed to the surface by tectonic forces. Take a hike among these unusual rocks and maybe meet a moose. Further north is Western Brook Pond, a remarkable misnomer for this gigantic, glacier-carved fjord with cliffs 2,000 feet high. Explore the fjord as part of a boat tour, or take a cruise along the coast to see the mountains from a different vantage point. There are over 100 km of trails in the park, including iconic treks like Gros Morne Mountain and Green Gardens, plus migrating caribou, Arctic-alpine plants, and other natural wonders. In winter, this place is a wonderland for snowmobilers, skiers, and backcountry enthusiasts – many of whom lead tours. And, unlike most national parks, this one has pockets of civilization: the towns and villages in and around the park provide services and accommodations, and there’s a lively arts community. Annual festivals celebrate theatre, writing, and music, and the region is home to many talented visual artists. You can reach Port au Choix via Route 430-28 from Port Saunders. The Basques, the French, and the English have fished along these shores for almost five centuries. Part of this story is told at the French Rooms Cultural Centre. Crab and lobster are king along this shore – you’ll see hundreds of pots stacked in many places, and the harbour is busy with fishing boats coming and going.

Over the millennia, cultures have come and gone, but dependence on the sea has been a constant. That was true for the Maritime Archaic and Dorset peoples who lived in the Port au Choix area long before Europeans arrived. A 3-km trail connects the village to the Point Riche Lighthouse, built in 1892. Watch for caribou and whales! Other nearby trails will take you to long stretches of beach, across limestone barrens, and through tuckamore forests. St. Barbe is a jumping-off point for southern Labrador. A ferry service crosses the Strait of Belle Isle to Blanc Sablon, right on the Labrador-Québec border. See the Labrador section for more information. On Route 436 you’ll find our second UNESCO World Heritage Site, at L’Anse aux Meadows. It was here Vikings led by Leif Erickson founded the first European settlement in North America a thousand years ago. L’Anse aux Meadows was a tiny fishing village in 1960, when explorer Helge Ingstad came looking for a place the Vikings called Vinland. Ingstad, his archaeologist wife Anne, and Parks Canada uncovered the remains of several Viking houses, a forge, and other buildings, proving the Vikings were here more than 500 years before any other Europeans arrived on this continent. Nearby Norstead depicts life as it would have existed in a port of trade for a Scandinavian country during this era, including a full-scale replica Viking ship and four period-style buildings. The tip of the Great Northern Peninsula has Newfoundland’s longest iceberg-watching season, and is a good place to see whales late into the summer. The best way to see both is from one of the tour boats operating in the area. And the Iceberg Festival in June is dedicated to these glacial giants.

Grenfell Drive Start: Route 432 Length: About 268 km

The handful of communities on the east coast of the Northern Peninsula were once French summer fishing stations, part of the old French Shore. Take Route 432 south to Roddickton, where an underground salmon pool marks an unusual migration route. East on Route 434, the French Shore Interpretation Centre in Conche houses the French Shore Tapestry, 222 feet long and embroidered by local women in the style of the Bayeux Tapestry, retelling the history of the area from prehistory to the present. This area is also a haven for hikers. The Glass Hole Trail in Conche leads to a

On the southeastern side of the Great Northern Peninsula in White Bay, one of the highlights is the Main River, a surging 57 km that will test even the most experienced whitewater paddler. The Main River Waterway Provincial Park / Canadian Heritage River offers a full wilderness experience for capable outdoor enthusiasts, including paddling, rafting, angling, backcountry trekking, and snowmobiling. In Jackson’s Arm, be sure to pay a visit to the Stanley Ford Property and Outbuildings. Tour this group of domestic fishery and farm buildings while learning about traditional arts and crafts – including quilting, knitting, and fabric dyeing – or take part in a culinary demonstration and enjoy some local dishes.

Another visitor to St. Anthony had quite a different impact. Dr. Wilfred Grenfell brought modern medicine to northern Newfoundland and the remote communities of coastal Labrador beginning in the 1890s. His work lives on, and his story is told at the Grenfell Historic Properties.

Traveller’s Story Drive as far north as you can and that is where the excitement starts. Your chariot to Quirpon Island is a flashy red Zodiac. The ocean was a little rough but we were assured we would make the short trip to the island docking area. And what a trip it was. After loading up the small amount of luggage we were allowed to bring, we donned our rain jackets and ponchos, climbed down the dock ladder, and boarded the oversized inflatable dinghy. Assured it was safe, I took a deep breath and held on. When we arrived we were escorted to a light-keeper’s home built in 1922 and met by the warmest, friendliest staff. The Quirpon Lighthouse Inn is inviting and comfortable. The meals were absolutely delicious. The staff and the guests seemed so excited to welcome you. It wasn’t long before we were hearing people shout “whale” so off to the whale watching station we went.

Whale Tales I could have sat in the whale watching station all day. The excitement of spotting a whale circling the island, pods of whales rounding up capelin, whale tails popping through the surface or best of all - the breach of an enormous Humpback. Unbelievable. All while sitting in the comfort of a heated room, relaxing on the rocks on the shoreline, or heading out on a Zodiac tour. There were lots of whale stories floating around the whale station as well.

Icebergs! Yes we saw those too! Lots and lots of icebergs floating by the island on their slow crawl south. The really fun part was heading out in the Zodiac to see them up close and personal. Close enough to safely scoop up a piece of ice and taste it. Surprisingly it is not salty!

And Then There’s More… Despite what appears to be a barren island, there is so much to see. Hiking the island is encouraged. We saw plenty of sea birds just off shore and the views were incredible. Nature is all around you if you slow down and take a look. We came for the whales and icebergs but we were overwhelmed by the hospitality and beauty of this remote northern island.

Adventure Central The heart of the land. Right in the heart of Newfoundland, the central region contains some of the best outdoor experiences in the province. It’s the centre of Iceberg Alley, a stretch of coastline where ancient towers of ice majestically float down from Greenland. It’s also where whales gather in large numbers to feed, play, and people watch. Central is a perfect place to take a boat trip or go sea and river kayaking. It’s also worth visiting Terra Nova National Park – 400 square kilometres of boreal forest and coastline, ideal for whale watching, birdwatching, hiking, camping, and stargazing. The central region also boasts dozens of hiking trails. As you explore, you’ll see clapboard houses sitting atop rocky coasts, and wharves and boats testifying to the continuing importance of the centuries-old fishing industry. Most of the people living here are descendants of West Country fishermen who settled the shores more than two centuries ago. The region also has a rich Indigenous history dating as far back as 6,000 years. It includes the Beothuk as well as the Dorset people, who carved soapstone pots at Newfoundland’s first quarry.

Life’s better on a beach. Legend has it, somewhere buried beneath the sands of Lumsden Beach, is Billy Murin’s treasure. However, on the beaches throughout “The Shore” (Route 320), it isn’t the buried gems and jewels that make you rich. It’s the treasured memories that last a lifetime. Scattered throughout this pristine landscape are beaches that are filled with just as much history as it is with sand. In rural communities like Musgrave Harbour, Deadman’s Bay, Lumsden, and Cape Freels, surf, sand, and sun happily meet for all to enjoy. Relaxing on the hot sand and swimming in the chilled ocean does the soul wonders after a day of adventure – both on land and on water. Kayak through Newtown, known as the Venice of Newfoundland and Labrador. Hook into a cod fish, or if you’re up for the ultimate challenge, reel in a Porbeagle Shark and pose for a picture before releasing it back into the Atlantic.

Central Newfoundland offers an outdoor experience with unusual history, Old English words and Irish customs, aviation history, and music far removed from sea shanties. Hike to see an iceberg, camp in a national park on the coast, and uncover the tragic history of the Beothuk.

Dorset Trail Start: Route 410 Length: About 300 km

A thousand years before Europeans arrived, the Dorset were quarrying soapstone for cooking pots and lamps at Fleur de Lys on the Baie Verte Peninsula. Dorset Soapstone Quarry National Historic Site is the oldest-known mining site in an area known for its complex geology. Take Route 410 to Fleur de Lys to see it. In the 19th and 20th centuries, the peninsula’s mines produced gold, asbestos, copper, and other minerals, and that history is explored in the Baie Verte Peninsula Miner’s Museum. The French were fishing these shores well into the 19th century. This heritage can be seen at museums and historic sites throughout the region, like the Outport Museum and Tea Room in La Scie, which offers a glimpse into rural outport life during this period. There’s also a replica of a 16th-century Basque fishing vessel here. Nearby is Tilt Cove, the smallest town in Canada with a population of four. In 2015 the hit film Ant-Man, based on the Marvel Comics character of the same name, recruited Tilt Cove to promote the movie with a one-foot-high billboard. From spring to fall, you’ll have plenty of opportunity for whale watching and

iceberg viewing. Some of the best places to see them are from the French Shore Lookout and the Lookout Trail in La Scie, and the Ocean View Hiking Trail in Pacquet. Outdoor enthusiasts can extend their time here with guided hunting, fishing, ATVing, snowmobiling, and other backcountry adventures.

Green Bay and the Beothuk Trail Start: Springdale or South Brook Length: About 300 km. Add a 5 minute ferry crossing to Long Island.

Green Bay plays host to an annual parade of 10,000-year-old icebergs calved from the giant glaciers of Greenland. These castles of ice can be viewed from the shoreline or by boat tour. Whales are no strangers to Green Bay either, and there are plenty of opportunities for whale watching in the area – sometimes even just from a dockside restaurant. In Springdale, take the Indian River Walking Trail to explore the estuary. Be sure to bring your binoculars for bird sightings and your camera to capture the fantastic scenery. Join a local tour operator for a guided hike or picnic, or learn the basics of wilderness cooking. Take Route 391 to King’s Point. King’s Point Pottery Craft Gallery and Studio

Start: Badger Length: About 386 km

Take Route 370 south along the Exploits River to Buchans and the island’s second-largest lake, Beothuk Lake. Historically, this area was the winter territory for the now-extinct Beothuk people. This area is also known for its wilderness experiences, and adventure guides will happily arrange backcountry tours for you.

Exploits Valley

The Exploits is the longest river on the island and hosts the king of game fish– Atlantic salmon. Follow Route 1 to Grand Falls-Windsor, where the Salmonid Interpretation Centre tells all about this remarkable (and great tasting) fighter. Run the Exploits Canyon on a rafting tour, or enjoy a relaxing float downstream. The Demasduit Regional Museum in Grand Falls-Windsor explores the 5,000-year human history of this area, including the Beothuk. Walk the Corduroy Brook Nature Trail and visit the Nature Centre to learn about the wetlands and its flora and fauna. If you’re visiting in winter, stick around for the Mid Winter Bivver, an annual festival including snowmobile rides, gourmet food, and live entertainment. Nearby Bishop’s Falls, formerly a major railway hub, is home to one of the longest train trestle bridges in the country. It now carries hikers and ATVs instead of trains, but its almost 300metre length gives an indication of why this river divided the island for centuries. In the winter months, this bridge is popular for skiing, snowshoeing, and snowmobiling. Below Bishop’s Falls, the river empties into the Bay of Exploits, a picturesque area dotted with islands. Route 350 takes you to the western side of the bay and Botwood, which in the 1930s was a refuelling stop for the first transatlantic air passenger service. Visit the Flying Boat Museum at the Botwood Heritage Park, Museum, and Archive to learn more about this aviation history. Important moments in its history are chronicled in 13+ artistic murals located throughout town. Stretch your legs on the Botwood Walking Trails and soak up the seaside views – on the Killick Island Walk you’ll see bunkers from WWII. North of Botwood, the road forks at Northern Arm. Continue along the Bay of Exploits on Route 352. This road follows

have been plying their craft here since 1992, and their work reflects the inspiration of the area. The nearby King’s Point Whale Pavilion features interactive information on anything you’d like to know about these incredible sea creatures. Don’t leave without hitting the Alexander Murray Hiking Trail. It rises more than 300 metres and provides an unsurpassed view of Green Bay and any icebergs that might pass by. Next, after backtracking a little, take Route 380 to scenic Pilley’s Island and take in the Pilley’s Island Heritage Museum. In Triton, take a guided tour of the Triton Sperm Whale Pavilion. See the 13-metre Sperm Whale skeleton, and learn about the giant squid that once washed up onshore in Badger Bay. Take to the sea with a local tour operator to see icebergs, whales, waterfalls, shipwrecks, mussel farms, and a sea cave called Nanny’s Hole. On land, hit the Maple Ridge Hiking Trail. 5 km of coastal terrain awaits, but tack on some extra time to enjoy the outdoor pool, boat launch, and public pier area. Get even further off the beaten trail by taking a short ferry ride from Pilley’s Island to Long Island.


the scenic coast, with ample iceberg viewing opportunities in the spring. In Point Leamington, climb to the summit of Rowsell’s Hill Nature Trail for views over the whole area. In Fortune Harbour, join a kayaking tour around the coast, including a paddle to resettled Exploits Island.

Coast of Bays Start: Bishop’s Falls Length: About 485 km

Take Route 360 south from Bishop’s Falls (be sure to fuel up beforehand) and keep an eye out for the caribou herd that makes their home on the barrens. As you near the southern section, the forests and barrens give way to a fjordland of secluded bays and deep inlets: Hermitage Bay, Connaigre Bay, Great Bay de L’Eau, Corbin Bay, Belle Bay, Fortune Bay, and Bay d’Espoir. At the junction at Route 361, you have a few choices. Route 361 will bring you to several scenic communities in Bay d’Espoir, including Milltown and St. Alban’s. Here, join a local boat tour to explore the great mysteries of the bay, including a resettlement tour of Great Jervis or a traditional beach boil-up. Head back towards Conne River on Route 365, home to the Miawpukek First Nation Reserve. A powwow held here every July introduces visitors to Newfoundland Mi’kmaq traditions, including plenty of dancing, spiritual walks, and special ceremonies. At the Miawpukek Culture and Family Recreation Park, you may encounter locals building a traditional birch bark canoe – and don’t forget to climb the wooden staircase to Clem’s Lookout for a view over the bay. Outfitters with Indigenous guides will also lead you deeper into the interior on snowmobiling or ATV tours.

Further south on Route 360 is Harbour Breton, one of the oldest and largest communities on the south coast. First settled by French fishermen, and later by the English, its commerce was dominated for decades by the Newman family, famous for their port wine, which is still available today. Learn about the Newman story at the Elliot Premises. Tour the Sunny Cottage Heritage Centre, a large well-preserved Queen Anne-style home built in 1907. Visit Deadman’s Cove beach, and walk the leisurely Mile Pond Boardwalk. Top it all off with a hike up to Gun Hill Lookout for a spectacular view. On a clear day, you can see Saint-Pierre et Miquelon. Route 364 takes you to Hermitage, where Routes 362 and 363 can take you deeper into the Coast of Bays. Here you’ll find deep fjords and ocean vistas. Belleoram is home to the annual Iron Skull Folk Festival and the Iron Skull Mountain Hiking Trail, a challenging trek but worth it for the views. For a dose of history, visit the John Cluett Heritage House, which dates from 1844 and houses many historical artifacts from that period. Explore other small communities like St. Jacques, Boxey, Coomb’s Cove, and Wreck Cove, take in the views and beachcomb the area’s many beaches. Pool’s Cove marks the entrance to the Bay du Nord River, a designated Canadian Heritage River.

South Coast Adventure Start: Hermitage Length: Ferry crossings from 20 to 90 minutes

Hop the passenger-only ferry in Hermitage, headed for Gaultois and McCallum. Spend some time in Gaultois, where

Kittiwake Coast: Road to the Isles Start: Notre Dame Junction Length: About 311 km

Lewisporte is a major service centre for Notre Dame Bay. Historically known for shipping and forestry, learn more about this history at the By the Bay Museum. Other attractions include boat tours, walking trails, entertainment-chocked festivals, and even a dinner theatre.

Fortune Bay Adventure

backcountry to encounter woodland caribou, moose, and other wildlife. The Loon Bay and Birchy Bay areas will appeal to birdwatchers and beachcombers alike – watch for terns diving for fish as you stroll. Be sure to tour the Over the Top Museum to learn what life was like here in the early 1900s. There’s also a scaled replica of the schooner Over the Top, built to honour Newfoundlanders and Labradorians who lost their lives in WWI. Nearby is Notre Dame Provincial Park. This serene, forested park borders on the calm waters of Junction Pond and is ideal for camping, canoeing, kayaking, and swimming. Sink your toes into the sandy beach, and take a refreshing dip in the water. A major attraction on this part of the coast is the Beothuk Interpretation Centre Provincial Historic Site in Boyd’s Cove. Tour the exhibits and artifacts, and an easy 1.5-km walking trail leads to a former Beothuk village site – today, all that remains are the outlines of housepits. On your way towards Twillingate, take a slight detour on Route 345. There are hiking trails and berry picking opportunities along this stretch, and the town of Bridgeport is a little-known hotspot for iceberg viewing. Take Route 345 back to Route 340 and Dildo Run Provincial Park. The park is open year-round and is popular for its cross-country skiing in winter and camping, hiking, and paddling in summer. On the drive to Twillingate, you’ll see a giant Sei whale skeleton on the dock outside the Prime Berth Twillingate Fishing and Heritage Centre. Join the captain on a fishing trip, or take a boat tour to scout for whales and icebergs. Twillingate embodies everything Newfoundland and Labrador outports are famous for: rugged coastline, picturesque streets, and lush countryside roads. In the waters off the coast, look for whales, dolphins, seabirds, and – if the season is

Central

there is no shortage of fresh seafood and warm hospitality, and hike the interior trail to the resettled community of Piccaire. At the local inn, ask about events or activities happening during your visit. McCallum, another small village only accessible by boat, has walking paths and is best explored as a day trip from Gaultois. From McCallum, there’s a ferry that runs weekly to Francois, a small fishing outport framed by the walls of a deep fjord. This route requires careful preparation. You’ll have to spend a week in Francois before you can return to McCallum, and the service can be delayed due to weather or medical emergency. Be sure to check ferry schedules before heading out and make all necessary accommodation arrangements in advance.


right – icebergs. Twillingate sits in the heart of Iceberg Alley. A great place to view from land is Long Point, where a lighthouse stands atop a high cliff overlooking the bay. Boat and kayak tours are plentiful here. Twillingate has live entertainment almost every night and festivals throughout the season, including the Unscripted Twillingate Digital Arts Festival, where visitors participate in experiential digital arts workshops along with music, food, and entertainment events. Attend a live show at the Twillingate New World Island Dinner Theatre. Wrap up your visit with a trip to the Twillingate Museum and the Isles Wooden Boat Museum, both of which pay tribute to the area’s vibrant past. You’ll have your pick of restaurants, cafés, and bars around here, as well as the Auk Island Winery. Hikers can take advantage of the Rockcut Twillingate Trails network. These will carry you along the coast to hidden coves and great views overlooking the islands. Nearby outports like Too Good Arm and Herring Neck are full of historic homes and colourful fishing sheds, and as you navigate the winding coastal roads and streets, you’ll find photo-worthy moments at every turn.

Kittiwake Coast: Islands Experience Start: Route 335 Length: About 115 km. Optional ferry crossings from 20 minutes to Change Islands and 75 minutes to Fogo Island

Change Islands has a way of slowing you down. Only about 300 people call this idyllic and historic island home, and many of the island’s original dwellings,

stages, and fishing sheds have been perfectly preserved. The place inspires artists of all backgrounds – head over to Forge and Fibre to watch a blacksmith create custom ironwork using a traditional coal forge. While here, hike the Squid Jiggers Trail, which hugs the rugged coastline, and visit the Olde Shoppe Museum, a private collection of local artifacts from the early 19th and 20th centuries. Fogo Island, the largest along Newfoundland and Labrador’s vast coastline, is home to eleven settlements, each with its own distinctive flair. Traditional craft is in abundance here. You’ll see plenty of it at the Fogo Island Workshop, where handmade furniture and textile design reflects the island’s ingenuity. Settled in the 18th century, Tilting is a National Historic Site of Canada and a Registered Heritage District. Wander through the tall, lush grasses and run your fingers over the red paint of old fishing stages, or learn more about this incredible history on a walking tour of Tilting and Oliver’s Cove. In 1967, island residents had to decide whether or not to leave their home to resettle. Instead, the community-based Fogo Island Co-operative Society Limited was formed to build a sustainable economy around the sea and its natural resources. They built more boats, took over abandoned processing facilities, and sought new markets. As you might expect from a place so in touch with its heritage, there’s no shortage of festivals here. Soak up the music at the Brimstone Head Folk Festival and the Etheridge’s Point Seaside Festival, or indulge your sweet tooth at the Fogo Island Partridgeberry Harvest Festival. A number of museums, such as the Bleak House Museum and the Marconi Wireless Interpretation Centre, amongst others, celebrate Fogo Island’s unique history. Coastal hiking trails will lead you to

Start: Gander or Gambo Length: About 307 km

Gander is an airport town. As one of a few airports capable of handling the traffic when US air space closed on September 11, 2001, Gander was perfectly positioned to welcome 38 airplanes and close to 7,000 stranded passengers, almost outnumbering the locals. People up and down the Kittiwake Coast opened their homes and hearts to these strangers from all over the world, providing warm beds and home-cooked meals during a truly terrifying time. The kindness and hospitality shown to these visitors has become the basis for the Tony Award-winning Broadway musical Come From Away. When you’re in Gander, take the Beyond Words Tour and learn more about the events and the people who inspired the play. Gander, known as the Crossroads of the World because of its role in post-war transatlantic aviation, was a transhipment point for aircraft being flown to Britain during WWII. Today it’s a modern service town, but its air history is vividly remembered in the town’s aviation museum, and in the town’s street names. For a breath of fresh air, head to the Thomas Howe Demonstration Forest

and Cobb’s Pond Rotary Park. At the Gander Heritage Memorial Park, visitors can view various monuments reflecting the aviation and military history of Gander. In the winter months, the Airport Nordic Ski Club provides cross-country skiing and snowshoeing. Follow Route 330 north to Gander Bay, a scenic area known for its great salmon fishing. There are three popular sandy beaches along this route, at Musgrave Harbour, Deadman’s Bay, Lumsden, and Cape Freels. First up is Musgrave Harbour, where you can follow up a beach stroll with a visit to The Fishermen’s Museum. Originally built in 1910 by Sir William Coaker, the museum displays artifacts from the fishery over the years, and features a beautifully-painted mural on its exterior. Lumsden Beach is the most popular beach on the Kittiwake Coast, but it’s rarely crowded – there’s enough space for everyone, and then some. Local folklore suggests that pirates once roamed these shores. The Wonder Shore – Lumsden Shoreline Hiking Trail will take you along the coast, over sand dunes and rocky cliffs, to resettled communities and graveyards. An important nesting habitat for several species, the Cape Freels coastline is a designated Important Bird Area by BirdLife International. Keep an eye out for the Common Eider, Common Murre, Razorbill, Arctic Tern, and more. One of the best places to birdwatch is on the Wonder Shore – Cape Freels Hiking Trail. The New-Wes-Valley area has a unique history. The waters here are a bit warmer, which means the area has milder winters. This is what first attracted Indigenous people to the area thousands of years ago. Excursions available include hiking and kayaking, beach boil-ups, and berry picking. For a gentle trek, try the Business Pond Walking Trail, part of the Wonder Shore Trail system. Before you leave, pop into Norton’s Cove Studio to peruse the artwork.

Central

resettled communities and scenic lookouts – you may even catch a glimpse of the island’s caribou herd. The Brimstone Head Hiking Trail leads you to a place identified by the Flat Earth Society as one of the flat earth’s four corners. For an easier walk, stroll the Joe Batt’s Point Walking Trail to see the Great Auk statue commemorating the now extinct bird species.


Newtown – the Venice of Newfoundland – is built on a series of tiny islands. The Alphaeus Barbour House is a Queen Anne-style mansion built in 1904 by a local merchant. Inside are many original furnishings and fittings. Nearby Greenspond is a photogenic community, and one of the oldest continuously inhabited outports in the province, with a European presence dating back to the 1690s. Wander around town to see historic buildings, hike the Wonder Shore – Greenspond Hiking Trail, or take a boat tour to look for birds, icebergs, and whales. Your guides may also lead you to resettled islands and secluded beaches, where you’ll enjoy a hearty meal cooked over an open fire. In Dover, head to the lookout over the Dover Fault, a major break in the Earth’s crust, marking the area where the North American and European continents collided 150-million years ago. The coast around Dover and Hare Bay is excellent for whale watching, iceberg viewing, fishing, and birdwatching. Hop on a boat tour that will take you out exploring the nooks and crannies of the Kittiwake Coast. At the end of this scenic drive is Gambo, birthplace of Joey Smallwood. He successfully led the province into Confederation, and became our first Premier when Newfoundland joined Canada in 1949. Several commemorative pieces that recall his life and work, including a statue and a museum, dot the town. Logger’s Memorial Park highlights the community’s storied logging history, while the David Smallwood Park has access to trails and a natural swimming hole. This is also the location of the Just Imagine Dinner Theatre, based on events from September 11, 2001. Stop at Joey’s Lookout on your way out of town for magnificent views over Gambo and the Gambo River.

Kittiwake Coast: Road to the Beaches Start: Glovertown or Traytown Length: About 90 km. Add a 1 hour ferry crossing to St. Brendan’s

The Eastport Peninsula is famed for its sandy beaches. Take Route 310 from Route 1 at Glovertown or Traytown and get ready for some beachcombing. There’s more here than just sand, including exceptional hiking on the Damnable Trail network. Ranging from rugged and challenging coastal trails to leisurely strolls along beaches and through historic communities, the network has something for every ability. The leisurely Ken Diamond Memorial Park & Trail in Glovertown is a great place to start. Before you leave, pay a visit to the Glovertown Museum – The Janes House, to learn about the resettlement history of the islands in Bonavista Bay. There are also informative exhibits about the area’s boat building heritage and educational exhibits about the lumber industry. Eastport is the main beach hub. Eastport Beach and Northside Beach draw visitors all summer long – these white sandy beaches are connected by boardwalks and a nature trail. Northside Beach is the starting point of the High Tide Trail, part of the Damnable Trail Network. The town also hosts a well-regarded literary festival and an accordion festival each summer. Get further acquainted with the arts and culture scene by seeing what’s on at The Beaches Arts & Heritage Centre. The aptly named Sandy Cove Beach can be found in nearby Sandy Cove. There are Damnable Trail network trails in this area, including the Old School House Trail, an easy 2-km trek to Happy

OUR HONEYMOON ROAD TRIP by Malissa Ellen

164 | For more info call 1-800-563-6353


Newfoundland and Labrador has always been a place I have dreamed of. When my husband and I decided where we wanted to explore for our honeymoon we knew instantly that this was the place we wanted to see.

Terra Nova We spent two nights at Terra Nova National Park. From the boardwalks that took us along the water and through marshland, to climbing stairs taking us to breathtaking views, to spending the night under the stars.

My Favourite Spot, Twillingate Something about the place I think will stay with me forever. Walking through the streets, exploring Long Point Lighthouse, eating delicious food, seeing the hills of colourful homes, walking nearby trails… it was easily my favourite.

Boyd’s Cove and the Beothuk At the Beothuk Interpretation Centre there was so much to learn; and we got to actually see where the Beothuk village used to be. The trail took us through the forest, to the village, along a beautiful river, and to an amazing view.

King’s Point Alexander Murray Hiking Trail! WOW. WOW. WOW. You have to climb and climb, but every step is worth every spot on this trail. The amazing view from the top and the waterfalls that you see along the way. A team of people volunteer to help keep this trail alive and maintained, and the hard work is so inspiring. Even though I was three months pregnant at the time, I am so glad we started and finished this trail.

An Unforgettable Adventure Newfoundland and Labrador you sure were an adventure. We hiked beautiful trails with spectacular views, and I could have had an endless amount of nights sitting by the campfire listening to some of our favourite music. I tried tons of yummy food I never thought of trying before, and I saw Alan Doyle right out the car window. And I got to feel our little human move for the first time. I will never forget this place.

Way out East The edge of the earth. This historic region is home to many unique, charming communities, flanked by sheltered bays, inlets, and coves. In fact, this area was the first place John Cabot arrived during his 1497 New World voyage. It stretches from his famous landing place on the Bonavista Peninsula to the French islands of Saint-Pierre et Miquelon – accessible by a short ferry trip from Fortune. The eastern region also lays claim to scenic driving routes and several provincial parks where you can camp, hike, and boat. Enjoy sweeping coastal landscapes and beautiful walking trails – some of the most impressive on the island – that weave through land richly populated with migratory birds like kittiwakes, gannets, great black-backed gulls, and puffins. Throughout Trinity Bay, Random Island, and the Burin Peninsula you’re bound to get a sense of the rich fishing culture, artistry, and history of the region. Discover quaint English architecture and iconic fishing sheds that delicately dot the coast. Here you can step back in time – often by experiencing performances like the renowned New Founde Lande Trinity Pageant. And it’s all part of the breathtaking charm and personality of the east.

Your Eastern journey starts here. The eastern region is packed with adventure – from the Burin Peninsula, teeming with communities as unique as the dialects within, to the Bonavista Peninsula, where John Cabot first landed in 1497. Visit the picturesque town of Trinity with its legendary theatre, or hike the Skerwink Trail, an outdoor aficionado’s dream. Dive into history in Grand Bank at the Seamen’s Museum and explore exhibits that display the wonders of the deep-sea fishery. Or hop the ferry to a little piece of France, just 20 kilometres away. the perfect place to nestle in at night as you explore the peninsula on a series of day trips.

STORIES AND SHORELINES DAY 1 The Bonavista Peninsula – craggy rolling coastlines scattered with rock sculptures carved by the ocean and time – is a geographic work of art not to be missed. Start in Clarenville, a natural gateway to the Discovery Trail, and a panorama of scenery, historic sites, and coastal towns and villages. It’s also

Trek off the beaten path with a trip to Random Island via the causeway, and enjoy the tranquility and peace of a place that looks untouched by time. Then, go for an afternoon venture to gorgeous Trinity Bight, popular with visitors and tourists, as well as directors – several movies and television series have been filmed here.

DAY 2

Next, visit the root cellar capital of the world – Elliston. Before refrigeration and electricity came to rural communities, root cellars kept food from freezing in the winter and spoiling in the summer. Wander around and notice these wonders tucked away in the hills. With over 100 still in working condition, they’re a feat of ingenuity that have truly stood the test of time. Continue on to the friendliest colony of puffins on the island. Tame, but full of excitement, you’ll be able to get within feet of these adorable birds.

Hiking fans will fall in love with the magnificent Skerwink Trail, an award-winning, 5.3-kilometre trail that encircles Skerwink head. Film fans should head out to New Bonaventure to visit the set of Random Passage, a miniseries depicting one woman’s struggle to survive early outport life. While in the area, hop on a boat tour and explore the coast while keeping an eye out for whales and seabirds.

Now leap back in history to the summer of 1497, when John Cabot sighted Bonavista (Oh Happy Sight) . At the tip of the peninsula you’ll find a town that has been synonymous with the fishing industry for centuries. Experience rich fishing as you explore the Ryan Premises National Historic Site. Then it’s a short drive to Cape Bonavista Provincial Historic Site to admire the

Take a piece of the past home with you as the Forge turns out items for various craft shops around town. In the evening, grab a tasty bite at one of the local eateries before taking in a night of drama and comedy at the Rising Tide Theatre on the wharf.

entitled “The New Founde Lande Trinity Pageant.” Follow the actors and meander the hilly streets, tucked away alleys, and notable buildings, all while delving into the history of the town and its significance to the province – presented with a comedic twist of course. Then, step back in time at the Green Family Forge where you’ll witness the legacy of six generations of blacksmiths.


Cape Bonavista Lighthouse. Here, you’ll experience one of the only lighthouses in the world where you can still climb up the stone tower and see the same seal-oil-fuelled catoptric light apparatus that was used in the 19th century.

DAY 3 Take a morning drive down Route 235 and keep an eye out for small villages where residents still pursue traditional lifestyles. The coastline here is truly spectacular, and is best viewed on foot. Walk the Lighthouse Trail in King’s Cove, or take a stroll to view the sea arch at Tickle Cove.

COASTAL HERITAGE DAY 4 The Burin Peninsula – affectionately referred to as “the boot” – comprises 39 communities, of which 38 are located directly on the coast. The area is rich in history, culture, and tradition – thriving on the gifts from the sea. Start exploring by following Route 212 to Bay L’Argent, where you can take a day trip by ferry to the remote communities of Rencontre East and Pool’s Cove on the western side of Fortune Bay. Here you’ll witness not only the isolated beauty of a land untouched, but also two tight-knit communities that rely on the sea and each other to maintain their way of life.

Then it’s on to Marystown, the largest community on the peninsula, and its commercial hub. Check out the museums and learn about the town’s proud fishing heritage.

DAY 5 Route 221 winds on to Burin, which is built along a series of high cliffs and sheltered coves – once a haven for pirates and privateers because of the many narrow channels and dead-end passages. In the 1760s, Captain James Cook charted these shorelines and kept a lookout for rum-runners from a perch that still bears his name – Cook’s Lookout. If you’re in an educational mood, visit the museums and heritage houses in town. The Oldest Colony Trust building was once a cold storage facility and now exhibits 19th-century Burin artwork. If you’re visiting during the summer, stick around for some knee-bouncing, head-bobbing, musical entertainment. Now it’s on to one of the most famous communities – St. Lawrence, where fluorspar was mined for several decades and may yet be again. To truly understand the town’s history and the hardships of

Fancy a trip to France? If so, you can hop on the ferry at Fortune headed to Saint-Pierre et Miquelon – the only remnant of the former colonial empire of New France. See page 435 for more information. Fortune is also the site of the Fortune Head Ecological Reserve. It’s here that the world’s best examples of 540-million-year-old marine fossils are preserved. They mark the boundary between the pre-Cambrian and Cambrian geological eras. Tours begin at the Interpretation Centre. For some classic Newfoundland and Labrador hospitality, head to Grand Bank – named for the high bank that

extends from Admiral’s Cove to the water’s edge. Here, the cool waters from the Labrador Current mix with the warm Gulf Stream, creating the perfect nursery for fish, and thus the perfect location for a friendly fishing community. Stop by the Seamen’s Museum and explore artifacts from land and sea, used by local families from the 1800s to the mid 1900s. Next visit Frenchman’s Cove Provincial Park, complete with 51 hectares of luscious habitat, a pebble beach, and a nine-hole golf course. Nearby Garnish has an excellent view over Fortune Bay, with Brunette Island and the Connaigre Peninsula off in the distance.

Our geological treasures are like nowhere else on earth, and as you travel back more than half a billion years you’ll discover stories of volcanoes, glaciers, and fossils that changed our view on how the world works. This is the place where animal life began, and at the Mistaken Point UNESCO World Heritage Site you can explore a 565-million-year-old sea bed that contains fossils of our oldest animal ancestors. Continue your journey at the Fortune Head Geology Centre, and witness the moment animals took over the world. You can even meet some of the world’s biggest trilobite fossils at Manuels River. Discover how Avalonia continues to shape our communities; from a hike along the stunning coastal landscapes of the Discovery UNESCO Global Geopark, to the spectacular mineral formations near St. Lawrence. With so much to uncover, it’s time to come home to Avalonia. - Dr. Jack Matthews

Eastern Newfoundland is synonymous with the fishing industry. Learn more about this way of life in major museums in Bonavista and Grand Bank. But there’s more here than just fish. How about a round of golf near two salmon rivers, or a walk along a coastal path so beautiful it has won international acclaim? There’s a theatre festival in Trinity that’s been entertaining travellers for many years with local productions, local stories, and local stars. There are beaches and boat tours, history and heritage – and even a ferry ride to France.

Discovery Trail Start: Port Blandford or Clarenville Length: About 425 km

Clarenville, founded in the 1890s, is a youngster compared to many other towns on the Bonavista Peninsula – but it’s the area’s busy service centre and commercial hub. Pay a visit to The Farm and Market, grab a coffee, and browse local products from over 35 vendors. Visit the Clarenville Heritage Museum to learn about the town’s history, or follow a meandering stream on the Rotary Trail. For more adventure, join a local boat or kayak tour to explore the coastline and its resettled communities. As you make your way to Trinity, stop in Milton for a visit to the Newfoundland Cider Company for a taste of their barrel-aged ciders. Trinity, once a prosperous fishing site, is one of the best-known communities in the province. Follow Route 239 to this coastal gem with many architecturally significant buildings. Take a guided walking tour, or just wander around. Among the fascinating exhibits are the Cooperage, where barrels were made, and a working forge where blacksmiths produce iron items to be sold in local craft stores. Fort Point (also known as

Admiral’s Point) was established in 1748 by the British to protect Trinity’s mercantile assets, and a lighthouse was built here in 1871. Coastal experiences are aplenty in Trinity, including whale-watching tours in Trinity Bay. Whales frolic and feed around our shores as they follow their annual migration route, while seabirds like puffins and gannets swoop and dive into the waters around your boat. You never know what unexpected visitor may pop up to say “hello” – even orcas have paid visits in recent years. But it is for the theatre that travellers come in summer. The high comedy, farce, and enduring drama of Newfoundland and Labrador’s history takes to the streets for the New Founde Lande Trinity Pageant, a walking tour of the town led by actors. Rising Tide Theatre also presents Seasons in the Bight at its waterfront theatre. In New Bonaventure, visit the film set for the TV miniseries Random Passage, a replica of an early 1800s fishing village. In Port Rexton / Trinity East, you’ll find the Skerwink Trail, which brings you to a sea stack called the Music Box due to the sounds the winds make. Finish off your hike with a visit to the Port Rexton Brewery. Then, visit the Champney’s West Aquarium, or head to nearby English Harbour where the English Harbour Arts Centre’s programming includes arts and

first federal cabinet minister after Confederation. The grounds feature a restored fish merchant’s dwelling, alongside a former cod liver oil factory. Drop by on July 1, Canada Day, for a special celebration. Outside town is the Cape Bonavista Lighthouse Provincial Historic Site and the Dungeon Provincial Park, where a collapsed sea cave has become a steep-sided crater. To see Bonavista’s coastline from a different perspective, hop on a boat tour and keep your eyes peeled for whales and icebergs. Back on land, join a chef for a boil-up on the beach, where you’ll enjoy tea and a snack over an open fire – or perhaps sample some salt fish, lobster, cod cheeks, or moose. The best thing to do in Bonavista is park your car and walk. It’s a great way to see the old part of town and take in the architecture. The upper portion of the Bonavista Peninsula hosts the province’s newest UNESCO site, the Discovery Geopark, where a collection of 10 geologicallysignificant sites are scattered up the coast. Explore the rock surfaces at the Port Union National Historic District Boardwalk for fossils from the Ediacaran Period, admire the curious existence of the Devil’s Footprints in Keels, and more. On the peninsula’s north side, turn off Route 235 onto Route 235-17 to Open Hall, Red Cliff, and Tickle Cove, famed for the song “Tickle Cove Pond.” Scenes from the feature film The Grand Seduction were filmed in this area. At Three Mile Ridge farm, visit the animals, tour the honeybee field, or hike to a cookhouse where you’ll enjoy a meal at sunset.

crafts workshops, creative retreats, and musical performances. Port Union, as the name suggests, is a union-built town, one-of-a-kind in North America. Founded by Sir William F. Coaker, an early 20th-century reformer, union organizer, politician, businessman, teetotaler, and failed farmer. Coaker devoted his life to bettering the lives of downtrodden fishermen. Another interesting side trip is at Elliston, the root cellar capital of the world. Hundreds of these man-made, frost-free, food preservers – many still in use – recall the ingenuity of the pioneers. The Puffin Viewing Site here offers the best views of these comical birds from shore – they often land on the cliffs mere feet away. While here, visit the Home From the Sea John C. Crosbie Sealers Interpretation Centre, a modern museum and art gallery that brings to life the seafaring stories of sealers and their dangerous work, while the memorial honours the lives lost in the 1914 sealing disaster. Before roads were built, there were two ways to get around: by boat or shank’s mare – on foot – and as a result, there are coastal trails galore in this part of the world. Guided or self-guided, hiking or walking on the Hike Discovery trail network takes you to sea stacks, long-abandoned outports, and interesting rock formations. The northern tip of the Bonavista Peninsula is where John Cabot landed in 1497. Upon seeing land, his first words were “Oh buono vista!” or “Oh happy sight!”. There you will find the Ryan Premises National Historic Site, a restored multi-building fish merchant premises, which tells the story of five centuries of the fishery in Newfoundland and Labrador. The Mockbeggar Plantation Provincial Historic Site is the legacy of F. Gordon Bradley, Newfoundland’s


Heritage Run Start: Goobies Length: About 482 km. Add a 1-hour ferry crossing to the French Islands of SaintPierre et Miquelon

Route 210 takes you down the Burin Peninsula. Everything is different here – from the dialects, to traditional set and square dances, to the architecture. Most communities are on the Placentia Bay side of the peninsula, because of the good anchorage, abundance of fish, and pebble beaches for drying fish. There are only a handful of communities on the west side in Fortune Bay. One of these is Bay L’Argent, where a coastal boat – passengers and freight only – connects with the community of Rencontre East and, further west, Pool’s Cove in the Coast of Bays. The return trip is a fine one-day excursion. Swift Current has long been a favourite area for sport fishing, and antique car enthusiasts will want to check out Vernon’s Antique Car Museum. The highway crosses maritime barrens, one of the main eco-regions that characterize the province’s ecology. Keep an eye out for rough-legged hawks. The boulders dotting the landscape are erratics dropped by glaciers when they melted 10,000 years ago. Community names reflect the diverse European influences on early settlement: Spanish Room, Jean de Baie, Rock Harbour. Basque and Portuguese influences are sometimes buried under several layers of translation of the original names. Marystown is the region’s commercial hub and service centre. Nearby Burin on Route 221 is built along a series of high cliffs and sheltered coves. Take a stroll along the Oldest Colony Trust boardwalk

in Burin Harbour. Captain James Cook stationed troops atop what is now called Cook’s Lookout to watch for pirates and privateers. The community museum has excellent displays on the 1929 tsunami that devastated the coast. Winterland, on Route 222, has the best soil in the peninsula, and has been a farming area since the dark days of the Depression. It’s also a good place for birdwatching. In 1942, two U.S. warships ran aground near St. Lawrence. The people of St. Lawrence and Lawn risked their lives and successfully rescued 186 sailors, bringing the sailors ashore and into their homes. One of those rescued was the late Lanier Phillips. The kindness shown to him by the people of St. Lawrence – most of whom had never before seen someone of African American descent – helped him imagine a better world, and he went on to help desegregate the U.S. Navy. The Chamber Cove Heritage Walk traces the rugged coastline and leads to a memorial monument commemorating this event. For a deeper dive into the history of these shores, a guided walking tour is a must. Grand Bank is the quintessential Newfoundland outport. More than any other, this town is associated with the schooner fishery, and the town’s architecture reflects the prosperity and loss that went hand-in-hand with that once-booming industry. Excellent examples of Queen Anne-style homes are topped by widow’s walks, where the wives of well-to-do skippers waited, sometimes in vain, for their husbands’ return. Buildings in the town have features borrowed from the architectures of eastern Canada and New England, reflecting the reach of the fish trade. The George C. Harris House is a perfect example of this period architecture, and the building’s widow’s walk provides a bird’s-eye view over the town. The Provincial Seamen’s Museum is located here as well.

From Bay L’Argent on Route 212, catch the ferry west to Rencontre East – a rural community accessible only by water – and then onwards to Pool’s Cove in the Coast of Bays. This ferry takes passengers only, and is essentially a full-day return trip or a multi-day trip that will give you a unique view of this remote corner of the province. In Rencontre East, stay overnight in a historic vacation home overlooking the water. From here, set out on a local-led tour to immerse yourself in rural living. Catch a fish for lunch, take on a mountain hike, and explore hidden waterfalls and the remains of resettled communities while soaking up the solitude. Pool’s Cove is the last stop on this journey. Take in this quiet community with a walk around town before boarding the boat back to Bay L’Argent. Pool’s Cove marks the entrance to the Bay du Nord River, a designated Canadian Heritage River, which flows through the rugged landscape of the Bay du Nord Wilderness Reserve. Backcountry wilderness recreation includes canoeing, kayaking, angling, wildlife viewing, birdwatching, and more.

Nearby Fortune derives its name from the Portuguese fortuna, which can mean both good and ill fortune. The lighthouse at Fortune Head, one of several prominent lights along the coast, is surrounded by an ecological reserve preserving fossils marking the boundary between the Precambrian and Cambrian geological eras, about 540 million years ago. Learn about this geological history at the Fortune Head Geology Centre. From Fortune, you can take a side trip to France. A ferry service sails from here to Saint-Pierre et Miquelon – you might have already glimpsed them from Lamaline. These French islands are just an hour away and a good place to buy wine and perfumes. But remember, you have to present your passport and clear customs on your return, and American visitors will have to clear customs before entering the U.S. as well. You can find schedules and fares at www.spm-ferries.fr. The last stop is Frenchman’s Cove on Route 213 where there’s a nine-hole golf course in the provincial park. Hiking trails from here to nearby Garnish and Grand Beach cross beaches that are a great place to see the sun set over Fortune Bay.


IN SEARCH OF PUFFINS by Julie Sheffield

250 | For more info call 1-800-563-6353


We visited Bonavista Peninsula in mid-June, 2013. When planning our trip, we made a list of things we hoped to do on our week-long visit, including spotting an iceberg, hiking, and seeing puffins. On the drive from Clarenville to Bonavista, we checked off seeing icebergs as we saw several as we travelled along the road by the coast.

Cape Bonavista We visited Cape Bonavista Lighthouse where we saw more icebergs, as well as cows and horses grazing in fields right beside the road. It was amazing to see them pastured right on the coast, with icebergs in the background. Unfortunately, no puffins in that area. We travelled down a dirt road to Dungeon Provincial Park, which is a natural cave in the rocks where you can watch the waves come in from the ocean. Then it was on to Elliston, which is where we were told we had a good chance to see puffins. We saw root cellars, small dories, and a beautiful Fishermen’s Memorial, but no puffins.

Skerwink Trail Our research showed a hiking trail about a thirty-minute drive from Bonavista, so we set out to explore the Skerwink Trail. It is a 5.3-km trail that loops from Port Rexton to east Trinity Bay. The trail was well maintained and provided lots of scenic coastal vistas. We saw moose tracks, but no moose (and no puffins). We stopped in Elliston to look for puffins on our way back to Bonavista, but no luck.

Finally, Puffins! Our last day in Bonavista was windy and rainy. We decided to drive to Elliston one more time, in search of the elusive puffins. We were determined to find them, so continued driving to the small community of Maberly. Lo and behold, we saw a sign saying Puffin Viewing Area. I braved the wind and rain and travelled the wet, grassy path to where I saw an island, covered in puffins! We checked all the boxes for our trip. I would love to return to Newfoundland and Labrador to explore further.

And if you’re looking to dance the night away, the infamous George Street is chock-ablock with pubs and restaurants. Overlooking it all is Signal Hill, where in 1901 Marconi received the first wireless transatlantic signal at Cabot Tower. Outside St. John’s, the landscape is not only scenically stunning, but also full of natural wonders: dazzling icebergs, whales including humpbacks and minkes, migratory seabirds, and roaming caribou. The Avalon is full of legends, lore, and history. It’s home to Cupids – the oldest English settlement in Canada. And to outports like Placentia, Harbour Grace, and Heart’s Content – a transatlantic telegraph hub before satellites took over. The Avalon is also the Irish heartland, home of the East Coast Trail and, a little further along, Cape St. Mary’s and its famous northern gannet colony.

Avalon

Tales of the Avalon Welcome to the far east.


Q

Your Avalon journey starts here.

The Avalon Peninsula, where the sun first rises in North America, is home to one of the oldest and most easterly cities on the continent – St. John’s. Chock-full of whales, seabirds, nightlife, history, and ancient fossils, there’s never a shortage of things to do.

WHERE CITY MEETS SEA DAY 1 Today, start by exploring downtown St. John’s with its intricate boutiques, lively bars, and mouth-watering restaurants. Share a bite and have a glass while listening to some toetapping tunes. If you’re hoping to take home some local music, O’Brien’s on Water Street has you covered.

DAY 2 Begin your day at famous Signal Hill – where Marconi received the first

transatlantic signal in 1901. Start in The Battery, a charming assortment of colourful homes scattered on the hilly shore. Around every corner you’ll be delighted with magnificent coastlines, far-off lighthouses, and deep blue as far as the eye can see. After, visit The Rooms, the provincial archives, art gallery, and museum. End your day by standing at the most easterly point in North America – Cape Spear Lighthouse National Historic Site.

DAY 3 Head for the high seas and hop on a boat tour – the best way to view the magnificent weaving coastline and to come face-to-fin with a 30-tonne humpback. Keep an eye on land and sky for puffins and other seabirds.

Quidi Vidi

Avalon Itinerary

DRIVING THE IRISH LOOP DAY 4 The Irish Loop, named for the area’s dominant ancestry, starts in St. John’s and heads south on Route 10 right into the heart of Irish Newfoundland. This scenic and historic drive travels through quaint outports, alongside roaring shorelines, and provides many opportunities to sail out to sea in search of whales, seabirds, and icebergs. Try a boat tour to the Witless Bay Ecological Reserve where you’ll see chatty puffins nesting on the rocky coast, and where humpback and minke whales are the favourite regulars. Visit the Colony of Avalon in Ferryland – founded by Lord Baltimore. Here, an ongoing archaeological dig is uncovering the remains of the 1621 English colony. Next, experience a

picnic like never before at Lighthouse Picnics, reached via a 20-minute walk across the Gaze. Recline on a soft blanket beneath a gorgeous lighthouse on the mildly craggy coast and enjoy a superb fresh lunch and a refreshing jar of lemonade. Retire to your warm and comfortable accommodations in Ferryland or Trepassey.

DAY 5 Start today by visiting Cape Race, where the Marconi station picked up and retransmitted the distress signal from RMS Titanic in 1912. See how the station – 350 miles from the tragedy – played an important role in the rescue of the survivors, and discover the story of 14-year-old Jimmy Myrick, the first person to hear Titanic’s distress signal. Next, examine some of the oldest fossils on Earth at Mistaken Point Ecological Reserve, the province’s fourth and newest Visit NewfoundlandLabrador.com | 295

Next, it’s on to Quidi Vidi. Take a stroll around this quaint fishing village, nestled on the outskirts of downtown St. John’s. Be sure to stop by the Quidi Vidi Village Artisan Studios to see emerging artisans at work, then relax by taking in a tour and beer tasting at Quidi Vidi Brewery.


UNESCO World Heritage Site. Register for a guided tour at the Edge of Avalon Interpretation Centre in Portugal Cove South to learn about what scientists call Ediacara biota – creatures that lived 575 million years ago, when all life was in the sea. Now it’s on to Salmonier Nature Park – an environmental education, wildlife rehabilitation, and research centre. Stroll along the boardwalk that winds between the species-sensitive enclosures and get an up-close look at local animals that have been given a second chance thanks to the park.

DAY 6 For a complete change of pace, drive to Portugal Cove and take the 20-minute ferry ride to Bell Island – the largest of several islands in Conception Bay. Drive around the island, taking in the golden fields, fascinating rock formations, and beautiful beaches. Then take a guided tour of the old iron ore mine and get a first-hand look at the mining life. Drive back to St. John’s for a good night’s rest, or make accommodation arrangements on the island.

HISTORY, HERITAGE, AND SEABIRDS DAY 7 Drive to Brigus and take some time to walk around and admire the quaint homes and gorgeous shoreline. Stop by the house of Captain Bob Bartlett.

Born and raised in Brigus, this brave man went on to lead some of the most famous and dangerous exploratory expeditions to the Arctic in the early 1900s. At nearby Cupids, John Guy established the first English colony in Canada in 1610. Drop by the Cupids Legacy Centre to learn about these brave souls. The centre offers an extensive range of cultural programs throughout the summer. Nearby is the John Guy Flag Site and probably the biggest Union Jack you’ll ever see, celebrating the town’s British heritage. Next it’s a visit to Harbour Grace – a delight to both aviation and history buffs. Amelia Earhart’s successful 1932 solo flight took off from here. Now it’s time to frolic in the sand. The heart-shaped beach of Salmon Cove offers 500 metres of fine grey sand surrounded by imposing cliffs. A 2-kilometre hiking trail and warm water river offer activities for the whole family. At Bay de Verde, the shallow harbour glows aquamarine, hence its name. The Heritage Premises

Northern Gannets

Avalon Itinerary

DAY 8 Turn southwest and drive along the south shore of exquisite Trinity Bay. Don’t leave without witnessing the handcrafted wooden boats the region is famed for. Stop by the Wooden Boat Museum in Winterton where this timeless craft is kept alive, and skills are still passed down from generation to generation by word of mouth. Everything changed in July 1866, when the first permanent telegraph cable connecting Europe and North America was hauled ashore at Heart’s Content. Heart’s Content Cable Station Provincial Historic Site tells a communications story of global significance and is a must-see while in the area.

DAY 9 French explorer Jacques Cartier arrived in 1534 and eventually the French established a colony in Placentia in 1662. Visit this National Historic Site and witness the historical significance of the French fort ruins. The last item on the menu is a real treat: Cape St. Mary’s Ecological Reserve, the most accessible seabird colony in North America. A wonderland for birdwatchers and explorers alike, you’ll gaze upon thousands of northern gannets nesting atop a 200-foot-high sea stack, and smaller numbers of razorbills, common murres, and black-legged kittiwakes nesting on shallow cliff ledges.

Next, explore the waterfalls at Cataracts Provincial Park. Here the river enters a steep gorge, so take the stairs and walkways to get the best view. A great spot for photographs. Visit NewfoundlandLabrador.com | 297

Welcome to the Baccalieu Coastal Drive. The Baccalieu Coastal Drive is a scenic driving route that weaves its way through picturesque fishing villages, rugged coastline, and some of the province’s most important historic sites. You’ll find iconic scenes across the region: the hilltop sign in the small town of Dildo, the fishing sheds of Cavendish beach, the rock walls of Grates Cove, and SS Kyle – a steamer ran aground in Harbour Grace that has become emblematic for the region. The Wooden Boat Museum of Newfoundland and Labrador tells the story of how the Baccalieu Coastal Drive was navigated in the decades and centuries past – at least its waters. At this museum you’ll discover why the wooden boat is integral to our historical, cultural, and provincial identity.

Crafting New Traditions The rural Newfoundland brewing and distilling industry offers a wonderful array of tastes as colourful as the people that serve them. In the town of Clarke’s Beach, The Newfoundland Distillery Company is finding inspiration in local products to inform their traditional distillation. There they craft spirits at sea level – delicious on their own or in their signature cocktails. At the Republic of Newfoundland Brewery in Harbour Grace, The Old Courthouse, built in 1930, you can sip craft beer in Courtroom #2 Speakeasy, dine in the Jail Cells, or outdoors in the Jail Yard. Enjoy a flight of beer on Dildo Brewing Company’s ocean-side deck. Few places offer such a beautiful view – particularly of the town’s iconic sign above the harbour! Across Trinity Bay, you can visit the province’s first rural microbrewery, Port Rexton Brewing Company. They turned an old schoolhouse into the hub of the vibrant community. There they serve a wide selection of options, including the province’s most extensive line of gluten-free beers.

Avalon road trips

The Avalon Peninsula looks like a piece from a jigsaw puzzle, with deep bays separating long fingers of land. Almost completely surrounded by water, it’s where the first European settlers put down roots. It’s full of history and home to the provincial capital, St. John’s, North America’s oldest city, which has a well-deserved reputation for food, music, and good times. The region is full of great places to see whales and seabirds, go sea kayaking or hiking, or enjoy sightseeing in centuries-old outports.

Osprey Trail

Cape Shore

Start: Chance Cove Length: About 70 km

Start: Whitebourne Junction Length: About 303 km

As its name suggests, this is a good place to see these famous fish hawks. From Route 1, take Route 201 along the southern coast of Trinity Bay. This is a popular summer cottage area, and there’s a park with a sandy beach at Bellevue Beach. Nearby is the spectacular Chance Cove Coastal Hiking Trail, which winds through forest, touching down at the far end of Chance Cove Beach. From there, the trail continues uphill and onward, offering spectacular views of the coastline as well as providing access to hidden sandy beaches, scenic lookout points, and sea caves. Take a side trip to Arnold’s Cove and visit the Drake Heritage House. When nearby Haystack was resettled in the 1960s, the owner Frank Drake refused to leave. He lived there an additional 12 years before the home was floated by barge to its present location. Its interior is like a time capsule of the era and now serves as the community museum. Several hiking trails in the area also provide scenic lookouts and coastal views.

Take Route 100 to Placentia. Castle Hill National Historic Site marks the remains of an old French fort. Plaisance, its original name, was the French capital of Newfoundland in the 17th and 18th centuries when the French and English battled for dominance in North America. There’s a fantastic view of the town of Placentia, the waters, and wooded hills. Tour the O’Reilly House Museum, a Balustrade Queen Anne Victorian magistrate’s home, restored to its original grandeur. You’ll see period artifacts and tidbits of fascinating history – including a silver tea set gifted from King George III. Just past St. Bride’s, follow the signs to Cape St. Mary’s Ecological Reserve, the most accessible and spectacular seabird colony in North America. Just 50 feet from the clifftop viewing point nest thousands of northern gannets – beautiful birds with a wingspan of over six feet – crowded atop Bird Rock, a 200-foot-high sea stack. Razorbills, murres, and other seabirds also nest at the reserve. If you have a question, ask one of the interpretive guides, who also lead nature hikes, or drop into the

Start: Whitbourne, Route 80 or Veteran’s Memorial Highway, Route 75 Length: About 310 km

This route traces the long finger of the Avalon Peninsula between Trinity Bay and Conception Bay. Western access is from Route 80 near Whitbourne on Route 1. In the late 19th century, Dildo was the site of an early fish hatchery and later, a whaling port. Now it’s a go-to destination for visitors intrigued by its name and seeking a selfie with the town’s mascot, Captain Dildo. It’s hard to say who is more famous, the good captain or American late-night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel – Dildo’s honourary mayor. He declared Dildo to be the sister city to Hollywood, and now there’s a Hollywood-style sign embedded in the hills over town. Hop onboard a boat tour and look for whales and icebergs, or try your hand at cod jigging or scallop fishing. The entire coastline on this drive is dotted with historic fishing villages and dramatic rock formations, like the jagged peaks of Shag Rock in Whiteway. Don’t forget to stop in Cavendish for a photo of the rainbow of beachfront fishing sheds. The first successful transatlantic telegraph cable was landed at Heart’s Content in 1866. The Cable Station here, once a major relay point for transatlantic

telegraph messages, is now a Provincial Historic Site. You may feel inspired to stretch your legs on the Mizzen Trail, an easy 2-km trail around Mizzen Pond. Nearby New Perlican has a collection of 20 colourful fishing stages on the water. Then it’s on to Winterton. Roll up your sleeves at the Wooden Boat Museum of Newfoundland and Labrador, and learn how traditional dories and punts were built. The most north-westerly point of the peninsula is where you’ll find Grates Cove. Get the lay of the land from the heritage trails in the area. The Grates Cove Studio & Café is a hidden gem. The two-room converted schoolhouse is both a place to try some unique Cajun/ Newfoundland and Labrador fusion foods and peruse the studio’s collection of woodworking, pottery, and printmaking art. The Baccalieu Island Ecological Reserve, a rocky island 3 km offshore, is home to an impressive number of seabirds, including 3-million pairs of Leach’s storm petrels – the largest nesting ground anywhere in the world for this species. There’s an interpretative display about the reserve in nearby Bay de Verde. In Blackhead, pick up an Ugly Stick and join a traditional shed party with food tastings, local entertainment, and a storytelling session (or two). Nearby, Salmon Cove’s heart-shaped beach offers a stretch of fine sand framed by tall cliffs. The quaint town of Carbonear is chock-full of historic buildings. A walking tour will help you get your bearings. Otherwise, just stroll around this scenic town – you might even hear a live music session flowing from the Stone Jug. This is pirate country. An Irish princess captured by pirate Peter Easton settled near here with one of Easton’s crew,

Gilbert Pike, and lived happily ever after. Easton went on to infamy and fortune, while Princess Sheila NaGeira has inspired books, songs, and a stage production. The site of Easton’s old pirate fort is now a museum in Harbour Grace. You can also hike Pirate’s Path Trail for some of the best views over Harbour Grace Island and Carbonear Island. Harbour Grace also played a role in pioneering aviation: Amelia Earhart took off from here on her solo flight across the Atlantic in 1932. The town still retains a wonderful inventory of historic buildings. In Bay Roberts, drop by The Cable Building, a National Historic Site which houses the Road to Yesterday Museum and the Christopher Pratt Art Gallery. Then take a leisurely stroll along the shoreline through the original settlement’s meadows to Mad Rock on the Shoreline Heritage Walk and watch the sea crash against the craggy coast. The first official English colony in Canada was founded at Cupids by John Guy in 1610, and the site is now being excavated. See the artifacts and exhibits at the Cupids Legacy Centre. Brigus was the birthplace of Captain Bob Bartlett, the ice pilot who guided Robert Peary to within striking distance of the North Pole in 1909. His home, Hawthorne Cottage, is now a National Historic Site, and the town retains much of its 19th-century character. Take an easy stroll around town to admire the charming old buildings, and make note of the unique stone walls lining the rivers. When you come to the Brigus Tunnel, walk through it. You’ll know what we mean.

Admiral’s Coast Start: Colliers, Conception Bay South or Paradise Length: About 90 km

Conception Bay South is a collection of shoreline communities, from Seal Cove to Topsail. Kelligrews will be forever associated with the song Kelligrews Soirée, also the name of the annual folk festival held in early July. These waters are great for scuba diving, especially around the ore carriers sunk by U-boats off Bell Island during WWII. Ocean Quest Adventures in Long Pond should be a first stop for divers interested in exploring these wrecks. Boat tour operators are available for anyone who’d like to whale watch, fish for cod, or kayak into a sea cave. There’s a famous fossil bed and walking trail at Manuels River, also a snowshoeing route in the winter months. A guided tour will take you on a walk through time, to when trilobites dominated the seas – or you can join a campfire marshmallow roast and singalong. The interpretation centre is an excellent place to learn even more about the area’s history and conservation efforts, and just past Topsail is the town of Paradise where you’ll find more walking trails around several ponds. Continue on Route 60 to Topsail Beach. This is a popular spot for locals to picnic, or gather around beach fires. On clear evenings the sunset here is one of the most spectacular on the island.

St. John’s Metro

Start: Paradise, Portugal Cove or Logy Bay Length: About 80 km. Add a 20 minute ferry crossing to Bell Island.

Start: St. John’s Length: About 70 km

St. John’s, our province’s capital, is the perfect combination of big-city luxury and traditional small-town charm. It is the oldest city in North America, and is full of character and charisma, with a contemporary, sophisticated edge. Downtown is home to a working port, years of history, dozens of award-winning restaurants, and the bright houses of Jellybean Row. An active arts community and energetic music scene ensure the city’s oldest streets are busy well into the night. Cabot Tower, at Signal Hill National Historic Site, overlooks the city and harbour. Guglielmo Marconi received the first transatlantic radio signal here in 1901, ushering in the modern world of telecommunications. The North Head Trail winds around the tower and is popular for both locals and visitors, offering unparalleled views of The Narrows and downtown. It’ll carry you through the Battery, where tiny wooden homes still cling valiantly to cliffsides ravaged by ocean waves. The cliffs here are high, and sections of this trail are narrow. Be sure to stick to the path, and use the installed chains and handrails to negotiate the steep sections. Wander the twisting, colourful, tree-lined streets on your way to visiting the provincial art gallery at The Rooms, Commissariat House Provincial Historic Site, Government House, or one of the many historic churches. The Grand Concourse walkways will impress you with their variety, as 160 km of trails run between St. John’s and neighbouring towns.

The Killick Coast extends east from Paradise along the south shore of Conception Bay to Cape St. Francis, and ends just outside St. John’s. Travel to Portugal Cove via Route 50 or Route 40. From here, take the ferry to Bell Island and tour the former submarine iron mines, the lighthouse perched on a cliff, and see large outdoor murals inspired by the island’s history. The waters around this place are full of shipwrecks – diving tours will take you to the best spots. From Portugal Cove, take Route 21 through Bauline to Pouch Cove (pronounced “pooch”) on Route 20. This is good berry picking country, especially on the gravel road to Cape St. Francis and along the Biscan Cove Path. This is part of the East Coast Trail network – as are many of the hikes on the Killick Coast. The scenery along this coast is spectacular. Flatrock, Middle Cove, and Logy Bay are settled enclaves along a rugged shore, and around each bend in the road is another view of the coast that seems even better than the last. Torbay is another rapidly growing town just outside St. John’s. Drive to the beach and take the Father Troy Trail along the shore, passing fields of farm animals and wildflowers. When it’s stormy, you can feel the power of the ocean pound against the rocks.

Visit Quidi Vidi Village at the eastern edge of St. John’s and sample craft beer at the Quidi Vidi Brewery or check out up-and-coming artisans at the Artisan Studios. Back on the Grand Concourse, walk the Waterford Valley following the Waterford River to charming Bowring Park. Tours are plentiful in St. John’s, giving you the opportunity to learn more about the city’s culture and history – or even practice your photography with a pro – while taking in the sights and sounds. Boat tours in the area offer whale watching, iceberg viewing, and fishing. Out on the Atlantic, you’ll see the city and its surrounding craggy cliffs with a brand-new perspective. Rise early to catch the sunrise at Cape Spear Lighthouse, another of our many National Historic Sites. This is the first sunrise in North America, at the most easterly point of land on the continent. You can also join the East Coast Trail here for a hike. Continue on to Petty Harbour for some sightseeing or a boat tour with a side of fishing. Make a meal with your fresh catch, knit a net, or weave a sailor’s knot with Fishing for Success.

feed, and the plentiful food has attracted millions and millions of seabirds to the reserve’s four islands. Most years, 10,000-year-old icebergs drift past, making for an incredible triple natural threat found nowhere else. Long before cars, people travelled between communities along coastal trails. That history inspired development of the East Coast Trail, stretching from Topsail to Cape St. Francis on the Killick Coast to Cappahayden on the Irish Loop. The trail offers a range of wilderness hiking and walking paths from easy to strenuous. Hike past towering cliffs, fjords, sea stacks, rock arches, and a wave-driven freshwater geyser called The Spout. Headlands offer spectacular views of our coastline and wildlife. Even the man-made elements, like the impressive suspension bridge at La Manche, complement the landscape perfectly. If you’d like to thru-hike the East Coast Trail, a local hiking tour operator can arrange accommodation, transportation between trail heads, luggage transfer, and meals. This route is rife with song and storytelling too – much of which is influenced by the area’s strong Irish heritage (hence, the Irish Loop). Join a kitchen party in a traditional outport home at Sullivan’s Songhouse in Calvert. Ferryland is one of the oldest European settlements in North America. The Colony of Avalon, as it was named, was founded in the 1620s by Lord Baltimore, whose family later founded the American colony of Maryland. Peer over the shoulders of working archaeologists as they uncover the remains of houses and cobble streets from the 17th century. The town’s famous lighthouse is home to Lighthouse Picnics. Pick up your basket of homemade delicacies and fresh lemonade, sit in the grass, and watch for whales, seabirds, and icebergs to pass by.


Road Trip Tips If your trip includes a ferry jaunt, visit www.gov.nl.ca/ti/ferryservices/schedules for routes and rates. Some ferries do permit vehicles, with a set limit for vehicle capacity; other ferries are passengers only (no vehicles accepted) so plan accordingly. Please check exact directions and road conditions before you start each road trip. Visit www.511nl.ca for current road conditions and ferry updates. Distances are estimates and for guidance only. Routes can be taken as is, or in reverse order.

In 1928, Amelia Earhart became the first woman to fly the Atlantic as a passenger when she took off from Trepassey. Listen to tales of fairies, pirates, and battles at The Edge of the Avalon Inn. Route 10 becomes Route 90 at Holyrood Pond as the Irish Loop continues north along Salmonier Line. Watch for whales along the shore near St. Vincent’s, where they come so close to shore you can literally smell their breath. Stop by the Salmonier Nature Park, where injured native animals are rehabilitated, after which some make it their permanent home.

Avalon

Cape Race is one of the first points of land in the New World observed by westward-bound sailors, and historically a treacherous one, sending literally hundreds of ships to the bottom. A lighthouse was built here in 1856. The nearby wireless station received and transmitted the distress signal from RMS Titanic in 1912. The UNESCO World Heritage Site at Mistaken Point showcases rare fossils from 575 million years ago, the oldest-known record of complex multicellular life on the planet. The visitor centre in Portugal Cove South has displays on all three attractions, but if you book ahead, you can also take a guided hike with an interpreter to see the fossil site up close.

Traveller’s Story

The Spirit Of The Rock Led by my cousin Wendy and her husband Dennis (Botwood-born), my husband Vince and I enter Newfoundland with tourist expectations. We leave with the spirit of the Rock inside us. From every window of our car, a panorama of beauty captures us. Rocky cliffs line the roads. Trees like old green fences bend in the direction of the wind. Houses of all different colours blend into the landscape with artistic freedom. Blankets of lupin, daisies, buttercups, roses, and clover sweetly scent the air.

Witless Bay One particular day on our journey, we arrive at the Witless Bay Ecological Reserve for our boat adventure. The sun is warm and the wind refreshing. As we head out to sea, the waves are high and the ship plows up and then down again, a swing and a dip. Our Gatherall’s hosts are funny, as well as talented singers and tour guides.

Puffins And Whales Puffins here are as numerous as the murres and seagulls. They flap their small wings furiously to combat the wind and propel their chubby little bodies. They are beautiful, with their orange beaks and feet. We then roller-coaster further out to sea and suddenly, we are surrounded by whales. Spouts everywhere. Captain Al says there are about 50 in the area. The humpbacks are the most playful. With a swish and a loud puff of water, two female humpbacks swim alongside our ship.

Alas, All Good Things Must Come To An End... We have to head home tomorrow. “I trust we had a wonderful trip, saw some amazing sights, learned a few things, had a lot of laughs, met some interesting people and strengthened our friendships. Travel is about creating memories. I hope we have managed to create a lot of lasting, treasured memories over the last few days.” So reads Wendy’s travel book. Her hopes have more than come true. End of this wondrous journey. But how many times have I said the words “next time we visit”? Countless!
