Newfoundland and Labrador is an adventurer’s paradise. Teeming with spectacular scenery, outdoor space, and more than enough breathing room, it’s the perfect place to explore and discover your inner traveller. The best part? It doesn’t matter when you visit because outdoor experiences are available all year long.

Exciting Things to Do

With so much to see and do and a variety of provincial and national parks, there’s an outdoor activity to suit everyone. Why not traverse some of the 200 hiking and walking trails, or kayak along our 29,000 km of pristine coastline. During the winter months, hop on a snowmobile and ride through the rick wilderness with 5,000 km of groomed pristine trails to choose from. And with 16 feet of annual snowfall, there’s always an opportunity to hit the slopes on skis or a snowboard.

Off-the-Beaten-Path Activities

Enjoy a thrilling half-day of rafting on the Exploits River with Rafting Newfoundland. The family-oriented rafting trip features plenty of opportunities to swim, surf, and play in the river’s friendly rapids. Once you've worked up an appetite, you'll be served a hearty, nutritious picnic lunch on a scenic rock island surrounded by nature.
Western Newfoundland is a cycler’s dream, especially in Gros Morne National Park. In the summer, get your thrills by mountain biking along park tracks with Cycle Solutions or Bike the Rock, or try caving and road biking in Corner Brook.
Get a bird’s-eye view of the countryside with Marble Zip Tours at Steady Brook, near Marble Mountain. Here, you’ll fly over a breathtaking gorge and through beautiful scenery. Near St. John’s, zip over the historic fishing village of Petty Harbour and enjoy the rugged coastline with North Atlantic Ziplines.
Have the adventure of a lifetime and witness the terrestrial beauty of Newfoundland’s most breathtaking parks from high in the air. Flightseeing is the perfect way to experience the boreal forest bordering the Atlantic where you could witness frolicking whales, massive icebergs, and majestic bald eagles.
Have you ever been dogsledding? With up to 16 feet of annual snow, Newfoundland’s west coast and Labrador are the ideal places for new winter ventures. Go for a mush and learn how to maneuver the dogs. As you race through the snow with a pack of huskies, the sense of freedom and excitement is unlike anything you’ve ever experienced.
