Things to Do
Whether you like to plan in advance or just go with the flow, you'll never run out of things to do here in Newfoundland and Labrador. From outdoor adventures, wildlife and birdwatching, to soaking up a bit of pub culture along with a plate of pan-fried cod and scrunchions.
You could kayak with whales in the morning, jump on a tour boat and chase icebergs in the afternoon and round up the day with a meal at a world-class restaurant, followed by dancing the night away to live music. On another day, you might decide to walk to a museum like The Rooms, only to find the walk itself so rich in heritage and history that it becomes your entire afternoon's activity (not to mention shopping). The next day you could find yourself diving to shipwreck sites off Bell Island. You can spend hours hiking our famous coastal trails and afterwards take a refreshing swim in a pristine lake or relax your muscles in a spa. In the summer, hiking is a favourite activity, along with golfing, fishing and, of course, whale watching and boating. In the winter, snowmobiling, skiing, cross-country skiing and snowboarding provide endless outdoor fun. And year round, our many cultural festivals and events including The Royal St. John's Regatta, Brigus Blueberry Festival and the Annual Newfoundland and Labrador Folk Festival draw thousands.
But remember, perhaps the best thing to do when you visit Newfoundland and Labrador is absolutely nothing at all. Relax, breathe clean fresh air and soak up the beauty and peace of your surroundings.
