Travel Tips

Newfoundland and Labrador may look like a mid-sized island on a map, but it’s actually a vast place with lots of open country. Approximately 29,000 kilometres of shoreline wrap around our communities, trails, forests, parks, and historic sites.

To give you a better idea, Newfoundland and Labrador would rank fourth in size behind Alaska, Texas, and California if it were one of the United States. It’s almost one-and-three-quarter times the size of Great Britain.

There are two parts to the province’s geography: Newfoundland is an island, and Labrador is connected to mainland Canada and borders the province of Quebec.  So take some time to plan your visit.  This is a big land with a big personality.
