A Few Items for Your Newfoundland and Labrador Bucket List

Come with us on a journey to the edge of the world, all the way to Newfoundland and Labrador—Canada’s most easterly province. If it’s bucket list experiences you’re after, look no further.

Here, 10,000-year-old icebergs, national historic sites, and colourful Jellybean Row houses vie for your attention during the day, while a cutting-edge culinary scene and vibrant capital have plenty to keep you occupied at night. Condé Nast calls it the X Factor—we just call it home.

Eastern Region

Visit Elliston—the root cellar capital of the world. Before refrigeration and electricity, root cellars kept food from freezing in the winter and spoiling in the summer. Home to over 100 cellars that are still in working condition, Elliston’s dramatic coastline is dotted with these hobbit-like structures that are just begging to be explored.

Central Region

Four hundred square kilometres of hiking, camping, and exploring await at Terra Nova National Park. If glamping is more your speed, Terra Nova has you covered in the form of oTENTiks—a cross between a tent and a rustic cabin that sleeps up to six people. Regardless of your choice in accommodation, you’re in for an outdoor experience unlike any other.

Western Region

Your very own winter wonderland awaits on Newfoundland and Labrador’s West Coast. Nestled in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains, Humber Valley stretches 70 kilometres from Deer Lake to Corner Brook—Canada's snowiest city and home to Marble Mountain Resort. Towering 1,700 feet above the valley, Marble boasts 250 acres and 39 trails available for skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing, and more.
