About the Eastern Region
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, the French islands of Saint-Pierre et Miquelon can be reached by a short ferry trip from the Burin Peninsula.
Centuries ago, towns in the eastern region rivalled St. John's as the fishing capital of North America. Today, the pace of life is more relaxed, and they instead lay claim to being some of the most historic and beautiful communities on the continent. You'll see quaint English architecture, winding streets, and breathtaking seascapes, which are perfect for whale, bird, and iceberg watching. As well as hiking and boat trips. You'll find some of the most beautiful walking trails on the island weaving 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. Experience performance events like the renowned Trinity Pageant and step inside the memories of a long-ago time. It's all part of the charm and personality of eastern Newfoundland and Labrador.
