Our Top Traveller Photos from 2019
As we say goodbye to 2019 and say hello to a new decade and 2020, it’s a good time to look back on our top traveller photos from the year that was. Feeling inspired? Be sure to share your 2020 adventures with us using #ExploreNL and tagging us @NewfoundlandLabrador on Instagram.
Mystical Battle Harbour
Battle Harbour is one of those special places where your arrival and connection to the place is what allows you to truly disconnect from the modern world.
Rugged Lark Harbour
The stark beauty of Lark Harbour is perfectly captured here against the backdrop of the Blow-Me-Down Provincial Park on the west coast of the island portion of the province. Legend has it that the community was named after one of British explorer James Cook's ships.
No list of 2019's best traveller photos would be complete without an iconic Jellybean Row image. This shot from Ray Mackey perfectly captures Colonial Street in St. John's with its wondrous pallet of jellybean colours.
When it comes to viewing icebergs, Twillingate is great spot to stay and view these 10,000 year old frosty giants. They come in every shape and size, with colours from snow-white to deepest aquamarine. Despite their arrival from the Arctic every spring, our awe of them remains new, year after year.
Although Newfoundland and Labrador may not be known for its sandy beaches, maybe its time for you to explore one of these hidden gems. Lumsden Beach can be found along the aptly named, "Road to the Shore".
This video of Humpback Whales near Bonavista went viral this past summer. Watching this group of barnacled giants gracefully navigate our waters left us in awe and longing for these leviathans to return again in 2020.
Dildo Mini Library
The road to Dildo hugs the twists and turns of the coastline, leading you to this wonderful and colourful town. While there is so much to do and see, one quirky and off-kilter feature is this quaint little library. Its the perfect place to stop, find a story and read a while!
St. Vincent's Beach
Famous for its deep rich waters near-shore, St. Vincent's Beach is a great place to view whales during capelin season. As the capelin roll, the whales feast and we are all the better for it.
The morning sun lights up the iconic town of Brigus on a fall day, giving rich colour to this historic and peaceful place.
Point Amour Lighthouse
The Point Amour Lighthouse is a Provincial Historic Site and one of the tallest lighthouses in Atlantic Canada. On a clear day, the view stretches out for miles giving you a visual feast of peaceful coastal beauty.
