About the Eastern Region

There are many historic, charming communities, flanked by big blue seas and sheltered coves to be found throughout the eastern region of Newfoundland and Labrador. The area was the first part of the New World to be discovered and it stretches from John Cabot's historical 1497 landing place on the Bonavista Peninsula to the gateway of France, the French islands of St. Pierre et Miquelon, which can be reached by a short ferry trip from the Burin Peninsula.

The eastern region also lays claim to scenic driving trails and several provincial parks, where you can camp, hike and boat, surrounded by sweeping coastal landscapes.

Centuries ago, towns in the eastern region once rivalled St. John's as the fishing capitals of North America. Today, the pace of life is a little more relaxed, and they instead lay claim to being some of the most historic, beautiful and unique communities on the continent. Here you'll see quaint English architecture, winding streets and breathtaking seascapes, which are perfect for whale, bird and iceberg watching, hikes and boat trips. In this area, you'll find some of the most beautiful walking trails on the island, and they weave through land richly populated with migratory birds like kittiwakes, gannets, great-backed gulls and puffins.

Throughout the entire region, you'll discover a vibrant sense of culture and artistry, and you can step inside the memories of a long-ago time – often by experiencing performance events like the renowned Trinity Pageant. It's all part of the charm and personality of eastern Newfoundland and Labrador.

    In 1497, the Italian explorer John Cabot landed at Cape Bonavista and set off a five-century rush for the huge shoals of codfish he discovered. As it turned out, the spot where he landed developed into a major fishing centre whose history is told at a National Historic Site in the town of Bonavista. The whole of the area was consumed with catching, curing and shipping fish to market. The story took some surprising turns along the way to today.

    The Heritage Run is steeped in colorful history. Located on the Burin Peninsula, the trail differs from the rest of the province in both geography and outlook. Separated from the seat of political power in St. John's for centuries, the Burin Peninsula developed its own trade links with the eastern seaboard and beyond. Its dialects, architecture and traditions are all unique. On this drive, keep an eye out for orange signs, which indicate viewparks — lay-bys with interpretive panels about the history and ecology of the trail.
