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.
