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.

Jellybean Row

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.

Twillingate Iceberg

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.

Bonavista Whales

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.
