About the Western Region

The western region is a great sliver of land on Newfoundland's island, stretching 750 kilometres from Channel-Port aux Basques on the southwest corner, to the Viking site of L'Anse aux Meadows at the tip of the Great Northern Peninsula. With ancient mountains, fjords, icebergs , whales thousands of miles of coastline and two UNESCO World Heritage Sites, this wild and rugged region sports abundant breathing room and diverse natural heritage. It's also home to the International Appalachian Trail, which extends from Mount Katahdin, Maine, through Eastern Canada and stretches fully across the western region of Newfoundland Labrador, before extending into Europe.

The land found here has a unique geological history dating back 1.25 billion years, not to mention a human history spanning 4,500 years, which is still being researched and discovered today. You'll find Gros Morne National Park here, a UNESCO World Heritage Site stretching across 1,805 square kilometres, encompassing the towering Long Range Mountains and the unique Tablelands. The park offers more than 100 kilometres of hiking trails, many passing through fascinating rock formations thrown up from the earth's core due to tectonic upheaval.

Stumble across the first European settlement of the new world at L'Anse aux Meadows. This Viking village, yet another UNESCO World Heritage Site, features a reconstructed complex of sod huts that offers a glimpse into the life of Nordic visitors a thousand years ago.

A journey heading south will take you to the City of Corner Brook on the west coast, a sizeable hub of activity just five minutes away from the world-class ski resort, Marble Mountain. At Marble, you'll find yourself standing at the base of a 1,700-foot vertical drop that receives an average 16 feet of annual, natural snowfall. As well as offering skiing and snowboarding, there are 1,250 km of trails for snowmobiling in the winter.

Here in the wild west of the far east of North America, you'll find scenery to take your breath away. It's a place of mountains, a place of conservation areas like the Codroy Valley International Wetlands, where you can watch wildlife like moose, caribou and migratory birds. It's a place where you can plan boat trips, go kayaking, hiking and even visit secluded sandy beaches. It's also full of culture, so be sure to make time for some high–level theatre, music and art along the way.

    The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) has identified just over 800 places in the world that are of outstanding natural and cultural significance. There are only 13 in Canada, and two of those are in Newfoundland and Labrador. Both of them — Gros Morne National Park and L'Anse aux Meadows National Historic Site — are located on the west coast of the Island of Newfoundland, and are only a few hours drive apart on the aptly-named Viking Trail.
  • 2 Days
    Newfoundland and Labrador is on the migration route of a variety of birds, especially during the spring and fall migration periods, when storms often carry rare species here. The location, number and variety of these windblown rarities draws twitchers – birdwatchers – from all over. Take a two-day excursion through southwestern Newfoundland, and don’t forget your binoculars.

    There’s something about this place, a place where, during the winter months, life itself is cloaked in a blanket of white. It’s the peace and quiet that can be found snowmobiling, snowshoeing or cross-country skiing over wide-open barrens and winding, wooded paths. It’s the high speeds of the dramatic slopes of Marble Mountain, a 1,600-foot adrenaline rush that comes with traversing 16 feet of deep snow. Whatever your inclinations, enjoy a long weekend where living in a winter wonderland is all you want to do.

    Sir Hugh Palliser was a governor of Newfoundland in the 18th century, and the man who sent Captain James Cook to survey the west coast of the island. The highway along the north shore of Humber Arm, Route 440, is named for him, and takes visitors into an area renowned for hiking and seabirds.

    Yes, it's the Captain James Cook. Before he became a famous South Seas explorer, Cook refined his surveying and 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 plaque in his honour overlooks the bay from Corner Brook and copies of some of his charts of the area are on display here.

    For a complete change of scenery, you can leave the coast and drive through the interior. The aptly named Caribou Trail takes you to Burgeo and the stunning Sandbanks Provincial Park, a beautiful sandy beach in an area popular with sea kayakers. From here you can take the ferry to nearby Ramea, and the coastal boat to communities further East along the South Coast, Grey River and Francois, with connections to Gaultois and Hermitage.
  • 60 km
    Just a 15-minute drive north of Channel Port aux Basques on Route 1 are two nesting sites of the endangered piping plover, a native shorebird, at Grand Bay West and J.T. Cheeseman Provincial Park. Pay close attention to the exclusion signs that mark their territory. The Codroy Valley International Wetlands, accessible via Routes 406 and 407, provide excellent refuge and food. See the resident breeders in summer, and the migratory birds in spring and fall.
  • 125 km
    Newfoundland gained full control over the west coast only in 1904. For centuries before that, it was known locally as the French Shore because France had exclusive fishing rights there. Today, many French place names remain, and this area continues as the hub of French Newfoundland culture. The traditions, lifestyle and heritage of those early settlers still dominate this small pocket of French-speaking communities.
  • 45 km
    This tour starts in Rose Blanche. Along the way, you will see dark cliffs, crashing waves, spume and spray. The real spirit and traditions of outport Newfoundland survive in the small fishing villages that cling tenaciously to the rocky, exposed shores of the southern coastal plain.

    The handful of communities on the east coast of the Great Northern Peninsula were once French summer fishing stations. Take Route 432 South from St. Anthony airport to Roddickton where an underground salmon pool marks an unusual migration route. East on Route 434, the French Shore Interpretation Centre in Conche tells the area's history. Nearby Crouse, resettled in the 1960s, is a favourite destination for hikers.

    Start off by taking Route 406 from Route 1. The Three Rivers Scenic Drive is named for the three salmon rivers in this area. The Robinson's, Crabbes, and Barachois rivers offer excellent sports salmon angling. If you're from outside the province, you'll need a licenced guide to fish here. Ask at any Visitor Information Centre for a list of guides. These guides know the best places to cast a line. Keep an eye and an ear out for the great horned owl that nests in the area.

    A car cruising the Viking Trail is really a time machine that takes you to the beginnings of our planet, ancient native burial grounds, and the thousand-year-old Viking settlement at L'Anse aux Meadows National Historic Site. Home to two UNESCO World Heritage Sites, the Viking Trail is one of those rare places on the planet that transcends the hype and stirs the deepest of emotions. You will travel through wooded valleys, over mountains and along a windswept seacoast. This tour can take from two to ten days, and you should relax and soak it up, for time will move gently, urging side trips to fjords and falls, sand dunes and fields of wildflowers.
