Newfoundland and Labrador

Newfoundland and Labrador is Canada’s easternmost province, and as the name implies, has two distinct land masses: the Island of Newfoundland at the mouth of the St. Lawrence River, and the much larger Labrador on the Ungava Peninsula, bordered on the west by Quebec.

It’s a big place, too, with more than 400,000 square kilometres of land and about 30,000 kilometres of shoreline. But it’s lightly populated, with only 510,000 people, 29,000 of whom live in Labrador. The capital city, St. John’s, has a metro area population of over 190,000. It’s a lively, fun-loving town, and the easternmost city in North America.

Located at the eastern approaches to North America, the province has a long list of firsts, including the first European settlement, the Viking village at L’Anse aux Meadows, near Newfoundland’s northern tip, which was built around 1000 years ago – 500 years before Columbus sailed to the Caribbean. But human habitation goes back much further in time: at least 7,500 years ago the Maritime Archaic people were living in south-eastern Labrador.

Newfoundland and Labrador’s greatest attractions are natural – whales, icebergs, seabirds and people. Every year about 5,000 humpback whales linger here to feed on the plentiful fish that breed on the continental shelf called the Grand Banks just east and south of Newfoundland. At around the same time, icebergs drift south from Greenland and the Canadian Arctic. The fish that attract the whales also attract seabirds – about 35 million of them – making the province a great place for birders. Hikers will find thousands of kilometres of coastal and wilderness trails.

The people are famously friendly, and have a lot to share, especially when it comes to music. The arts scene here has been compared to that of a big city, and there is a constant stream of works in all media that attracts an international audience.

With 95 per cent of the population tracing its roots to England and Ireland, it’s no coincidence that British-style food was for centuries the mainstay cuisine. That’s changed. A generation of brilliant young chefs has revolutionized the food scene. Most were born here but moved away to learn their chops at top eateries, returning to their homeland to take traditional ingredients and reinterpret them in an international style that has the foodies raving.

The climate

Because this is such a big place, the climate varies considerably. St. John’s and the Avalon Peninsula have mild winters and warmish summers. The rest of Newfoundland is cooler in winter and drier in summer, and Labrador has a continental climate that’s cold in winter and, especially in the centre, can be very hot in summer, but only for a short period.


There are over 90 campgrounds in the province. There are three national parks – Gros Morne, Terra Nova and Torngat Mountains. The first two offer the usual range of front and back-country camping, but Torngat Mountains is another world. There are no campsites. No roads. Nothing. This ancestral homeland of the Inuit is pristine. There’s a base camp and research station just outside the park from which guided excursions take place.

There are 13 provincial parks, 12 of which offer camping. These are located in areas of natural beauty and the campsites are in great demand.

There are also about 75 private campgrounds offering a range of facilities, everything from three-way hookups and free wi-fi to basic sites with few amenities but lots of peace and quiet.
