29,000 kilometres of coastline and a story for every step of the way.

Five Great Fall Hikes in NL
Sometimes, you have to take the road less travelled before the real journey begins. In Newfoundland and Labrador, the journey can be as colourful as stories told around the kitchen table. As meandering as our thousands of kilometres of coastline. As surprising as a humpback whale breaching in the mist. Or as comforting as bakeapple jam. There are places that travel with you, wherever you go.

A coastline with more twists and turns than a hot yoga class.
