Newfoundland &
Labrador

Regions
Newfoundland & Labrador is divided into five
touring regions:
* Avalon Region: This region is home to
Newfoundland & Labrador's capital city,
St. John's, which has been inhabited since
the 1620s. The city is a great place for
those who enjoy fine dining, hotels and
night life. For a bit of history, visitors can
see the Castle Hill National Historic Site
at Placentia, the remains of an old French
fort marking the French capital of Plaisance
from the 17th and 18th centuries. At
Heart's Content, the old Cable Station
is now a Provincial Historic Site. It was
once a main relay for transatlantic telegraph messages, and still houses much
of the old equipment. The first successful transatlantic cable was landed here
in 1866. The National Historic Site of
Hawthorne Cottage was once home to

Captain Bob  Bartlett, the ice pilot who
guided Peary to within striking distance of
the North Pole. Whale and seabird tours
in the Witless Bay Ecological Reserve will
astound visitors with visions of humpback
whales and seabirds, all amidst a backdrop
of 10,000-year-old icebergs.
* Central Region: The central region is
one of the best places in the province to
see whales and icebergs. This northeast
coast area was settled mainly by people
from southwestern England, and the area
still retains speech patterns familiar in
Shakespeare's day. The coast is dotted
with outports - small fishing towns - and
the interior is mainly forests and lakes.
You'll also find Canada's easternmost
national park, Terra Nova National Park of
Canada, in this region. The first mine in
the area was a soapstone quarry dug by
the Dorset people 1,500 years ago. The
region's southern coast has more French
flavour in the place names, undiscovered
fjords, aboriginal culture and tiny remote
communities that don't have cars.
* Eastern Region: This area's Provincial
Seamen's Museum in Grand Bank interprets the region's age-old relationship with
the sea. Visitors can explore villages established during the expansion of the British
migratory fishery in the 16th century. The
St. Lawrence Miner's Memorial Museum
takes visitors into the past, featuring turnof-the-century miners tools, photos and
other displays. For those who enjoy the
great outdoors, the Ski White Hills resort
just west of Clarenville has 15 runs and

lifts that can accommodate 3,800 people
an hour. There's also excellent cross-country skiing in the area.
* Labrador Region: Like the areas of
Newfoundland, Labrador is also rich in history and culture. The Innu and Inuit have
lived in the area for thousands of years.
The oldest funeral monument in all of
North America, dating back 7,500 years,
can be found at L'Anse-Amour, where the
Maritime Archaic people buried a 12-yearold child. The National Historic Site of Red
Bay tells the history of the first European
settlers to the region. The fishing port of
Battle Harbour was established during the
1750s, a must-see for history buffs. There
are several museums in the area. The oldest building east of Montreal can be found
at Hopedale on the coast, built in 1782.
Point Amour has the tallest lighthouse in
Atlantic Canada, built in 1855 and rising
109 feet. Labrador is considered a good
spot for snowmobilers because of the long
winters and heavy snowfalls, and sportanglers will enjoy some of the best fishing
in the world.
* Western Region: This area of the province
is loaded with history, culture and adventure opportunities; everything that any
traveler could want is here. Gros Morne
National Park features fjords, mountains,
forest and shores, offering more than
100  km of hiking trails. Its landscape
is so diverse and so beautiful that the
Park has been named a UNESCO World
Heritage Site. The Viking village of L'Anse
aux Meadows is a National Historic Site

NEWFOUNDLAND & LABRADOR

Rich with histor y. Rife with culture.
Sprawling with natural beauty. All these wonders have been in Newfoundland & Labrador
for thousands of years, embraced by those
who happened upon them. It's up to the traveler to enjoy them, to go vigorously in search
of people, adventure, and experience.
The province of Newfoundland & Labrador
is more than 400,000 square kilometers,
larger than New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, and
Prince Edward Island combined. It boasts
17,000 kilometres of rugged coastline.
Newfoundland & Labrador has been shaped
by its geography, both its sheer size and its
characteristics. Its waters are home to some
22 species of whales, dolphins, and porpoises. More seabirds make their home on
its shores than anywhere else in the world. Its
parks are home to caribou, moose, and the
Bald Eagle, just to name a few. It is home to
protected lands for wildlife and rare flowers.
The province's many ports offer a glimpse
of its sea-faring heritage. With such diverse
natural settings, plus modern cities and historic sites, Newfoundland and Labrador offer
much for the tourist to see and do.
Newfoundland & Labrador is a place rooted
in history and peopled with indigenous cultures and settlers from across the globe.
There is evidence of Viking settlement in
Newfoundland as early as 1000 AD. Fishers
from Brittany, Normandy and the Basque
Country visited the region starting in 1504.
The last province to enter the confederation
in 1949, the region was already rich with history and culture by the time it joined Canada.
Aboriginal, English, Irish and French peoples
had already been settled here for centuries.
