Newfoundland & Labrador - Unique Experiences and Wildlife

Welcome to Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada, the most easterly edge of North America. This is where the sun rises first and where Vikings landed over 1,000 years ago. This place is home to the oldest settlement and the oldest city in North America, but is the youngest province of Canada. A vast land, with a relatively small population, Newfoundland and Labrador has some of the friendliest people you'll ever meet. Here, you can immerse yourself in wilderness solitude one day and embrace a vibrant culture at the cutting edge of the contemporary western world the next.
