Green. The deepest and most vivid shades of green, perfect for long meadow walks and lazy picnics. This is Codroy Valley, a collection of 15 communities tucked away in western Newfoundland. Sheltered by the Long Range Mountains, boasting temperatures milder than the rest of the island, a haven for birders, nature lovers, adventurers, historians, and travellers alike.

Dramatic churches stand on cliffs overlooking the ocean, and clouds float over traditional farmlands dotted with grazing Newfoundland ponies.

Visit the lighthouse at Cape Anguille, the most westerly point of the island.

Experience Birdwatching

The Grand Codroy Estuary Ramsar Site is located at the mouth of the Grand Codroy River – a 925-hectare area recognized by the Convention on Wetlands of International Importance and as an international Important Bird Area (IBA). This is a stopover for migrating fowl, and a landing place for rare species occasionally blown off course. It has a large raptor population in the fall and is a good place to see songbirds. Spend the day watching and photographing birds in their natural habitat. Head to the interpretation centre and then hike the trail along the rushing riverbank, making note of the rare plants and wildlife you see along the way.
