About This Place

Welcome to Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada, the most easterly edge of North America.

This is where the sun rises first. Where Vikings landed over 1,000 years ago. This place is home to the oldest settlement and the oldest city in North America, but is the youngest province of Canada. A vast land, with a relatively small population, Newfoundland and Labrador has some of the friendliest people you'll ever meet. Here, you can immerse yourself in wilderness solitude one day and embrace a vibrant culture at the cutting edge of the contemporary western world the next. This is a land of rich history and natural wonders: stunning coastlines, breaching whales, icebergs, and some of the most incredible skyscapes you'll ever see. With a temperate climate, Newfoundland and Labrador is a perfect place to enjoy outdoor adventures like hiking and kayaking in the late spring, summer and fall, as well as sports like snowboarding, skiing and snowmobiling in the winter. From vibrant cities to quaint, historical outports, mountain ranges, rivers, waterfalls and winding coastlines, there are always fascinating places to see and countless things to do.

Embark on the first step of your journey by browsing through our site, and prepare yourself to be lost and found in Newfoundland and Labrador.
