Newfoundland & Labrador


Looking for a host of memorable experiences to persuade your clients to book a trip to Newfoundland & Labrador? Look no further, check out these never-to-be-forgotten options


Gros Morne National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is a must. Recommend BonTours' boat tour of Western Brook Pond along a 15-mile-long glacier- carved fjord with sides 2,000ft high. The combination of jaw-dropping scenery, waterfalls and great atmospherics is unbeatable. Also offered by BonTours are smaller boat trips bound for the fjord’s far end for an overnight hike with Clem, who serves guests gourmet food and great wine in a comfortable tent after a long uphill climb into the Long Range Mountains. Perfect for the ultimate Gros Morne selfie with the fjord in the background.


A great way to see the rugged coast of Newfoundland & Labrador’s Avalon Peninsula (named 'Top Coastal Destination In The World' by National Geogr

aphic) is

from a sea kayak. Stan Cook Sea Kayak Adventures, with 40 years of experience on these waters, leads travellers around a harbour and then out onto the ocean, through sea caves, near whales and seabirds to a meal – called a 'boil-up' – on a pebble beach. Stan also offers guided hikes on the famous East Coast Trail. Visitors see the same magnificent coast, and take in a bird’s eye view.


Bicycle tours, guided tours, Labrador tours, self- guided tours – you name it, Linkum Tours probably offers it. Ed English and crew can take your client hiking in Gros Morne or introduce them – sort of – to polar bears, and some less ferocious denizens, like engaging actors and musicians. They can take in a little island at the northern tip of Newfoundland, reached only by boat or helicopter, and stop at Quirpon Lighthouse Inn, do some indoor whale-watching and spot

late-season icebergs.

GET HISTORIC Climb to the top of the second-tallest lighthouse in Canada and visit an Aboriginal gravesite older than the pyramids in the morning, then head to Red Bay National Historic Site where Basques hunted whales centuries ago. Tour Labrador runs trips to Canada's newest UNESCO World Heritage Site and also up the coast to catch a boat to Battle Harbour National

The longest iceberg watching season in Newfoundland is at its northern tip. Northland Discovery Boat Tours operates into Iceberg Alley for a close encounter.


Historic District, the island where time stood still when the people left. Visit 200-year-old buildings and feel the peace and quiet that comes with luxury

accommodation and a spa way off the grid.

GEOLOGY ROCKS! The geology of Newfoundland & Labrador is so diverse – both in age and rocks and minerals – that it inspired the Johnson Geo Centre in St. John’s. With rock walls many millions of years old, the centre uses the province’s rocks to tell the story of the planet ( Then there's the practical side of geology a ferry ride away at Bell Island where an old iron mine is open for guided tours. Here, 20ft-high galleries slope down at a 10-degree angle. Entry is through the town’s museum.


FOOD FOR THOUGHT Rising Tide Theatre is one of the top attractions in Trinity, itself no slouch at historic architecture and offerings like a working smithy. The theatre troupe stages plays in a seaside playhouse and also leads a

comedic walking tour of the town. (risingtidetheatre. com). Combine with a jaunt to Upper Amherst Cove, on the other side of the peninsula, for the amazing
