The Atlantic province of Newfoundland and Labrador offers visitors a peek into the quietly unassuming beauty and solitude of one of the world's few unspoilt and truly unique destinations. Tourists are quickly caught up in the wild natural beauty of the province, from the rugged rocky cliffs and outcrops to streams and rivers that interweave the rolling green hills and countryside. Labrador also attracts many visitors to its Tundra, which features the 'mini-Rockies' and the historic Avalon Peninsula, home to the charming capital city of St John's.


Travellers enjoy coming here for the world-class fishing, exciting outdoor trails, wildlife viewing, hunting and dozens of breathtakingly beautiful national parks. Newfoundland and Labrador is a haven for outdoor sports enthusiasts, who can enjoy activities like camping, sea kayaking, hiking, canoeing, snowmobiling, bird watching, and any number of other pastimes.


The wildlife here is something to talk about, with thousands of moose, black bear, caribou, Northern River otters, Newfoundland Lynx and Arctic hares being native to Newfoundland and Labrador. The millions of seabirds and thousands of humpback whales circulating the freshly carved icebergs off the 18,000 miles (29,000km) of coastline are also something to behold.


Other key attractions in Canada's easternmost province include the Western Brook Pond, a land-locked fjord, and L'anse aux Meadows, a National Historic Site of Canada and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. L'anse aux Meadows is the site of the only confirmed Viking settlement in North America.
