Newfoundland & Labrador

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.

Fogo Island

Fogo Island is the largest island around the coast of Newfoundland, which is itself the 17th largest island in the world. Settled centuries ago by both English and Irish migrants, it was a fishing centre for most of that time. When the fishery declined, hard times set in, but a remarkable revival is under way. A visionary daughter of the town has returned to lead it into the current century through a unique form of social capitalism. International artists’ studios attract visual artists from everywhere, and the ultra-luxe Fogo Island Inn has won high praise.

It’s the capital and main business centre, and has a university (16,500 students) and an international airport (YYT). About 220,000 people live in the metro area, many drawn to recent prosperity due to offshore (200 miles away) oil production.

Trinity

Trinity is one of the older towns in the province, being settled in the 1600s.

The town and the area around it have been the backdrop for feature films and a TV mini-series. Some of the old houses have been converted to bed-and-breakfasts and other accommodations and eateries. Rising Tide Theatre makes its home here, producing a summer theatre series and a comedic walking tour.

When the sun shines, you will find paradise and you can dress accordingly. Don’t forget the sunscreen, even with cooler weather offshore the wind and sun will find you.
