Newfoundland's Natural Wonders
Glacier-carved inlets, granite cliffs, and grassy meadows await travelers on the banks of this historic island.
After spring thaw, the Labrador Current carries these massive ice formations past Newfoundland's north and east coasts.
Kayakers narrowly miss an icy collision as they paddle between bergs. Rowers should exercise great caution, as these frozen giants have a tendency to capsize and calve (break apart).
The Newfoundland coast is dotted with tidy fishing villages and unparalleled views of pristine shoreline.
Rugged mountains and wooded slopes frame much of the Great Northern Peninsula and provide a stunning backdrop for a day on the water.
Boating and fishing is second nature to many Newfoundland natives, as the island is surrounded by waters so abundant that for centuries European nations vied for fishing rights.
Visitors often gather on the clifftop helipad and watch for the plume of breaching humpbacks feeding just offshore.
It's not uncommon to find small boats harbored in isolated "outports," ready and waiting for their next sea voyage.
Woolly sheep and wildflowers delight hikers on Gros Morne National Park's Green Gardens Trail.
