Welcome to Humber Valley

Learn More
The morning air draping the Humber Valley touches your lips like a cool drop of water – a fresh, distinct sensation travellers find hard to describe. Set along the banks of the Humber River, the Humber Valley is nestled in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains and stretches 70 kilometres from Deer Lake, to the city of Corner Brook.

Explore Outdoor Activities

Paddling along the river by canoe, you can view the lush trees and bushes against the beautiful Long Range Mountains. Here you can camp, hike, boat, golf, zipline, and ski. Or, drop your line in the crystal clear water for a day of angling on one of the best Atlantic salmon fishing rivers on the planet.

For fans of long-range hiking, the province’s International Appalachian Trail section begins at Port-aux-Basques and passes through the Humber Valley on its way up the Northern Peninsula. The hike through the valley is a moderate, 2-day, 25 km scenic trail, along rolling hills through inspiring scenery.
