Motor Coach Canada: Tour & Travel Canada 2019 - 46

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, Indigenous 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 turn-of-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-year-old 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 Montréal 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 sport-anglers
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
and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It was the
first European settlement in North America, dating back to 1000 AD. Parks Canada has reconstructed a sod hut complex to show what life
would have been like for the Viking settlers, and
the L'Anse aux Meadows interpretation centre
features many of the valuable artifacts that have
been found there. Visitors can witness history
taking place at the Port au Choix National Historic
Site, where a recent dig is uncovering an ancient
Indigenous village. Four hundred-year-old burial
sites of the Maritime Archaic Indigenous Peoples
have been unearthed here.
