Newfoundland travel guide

4.6
Lighthouses · Historic Walking Areas · Dolphin & Whale Watching
One of the world's biggest islands, Newfoundland sits just off North America's eastern coastline, blocking the mouth of the St. Lawrence River and forming the largest estuary on the planet. A trip to Newfoundland reveals a place distinct from the rest of Canada, where even local time ticks away at its own pace--the island's time zone is 30 minutes ahead of the mainland's. Water remains the lifeblood of this land at the edge of the continent, so most holidays in Newfoundland include some form of sea-related activities. You can fish, sail, whale watch, explore lighthouses, and observe majestic icebergs as they drift by the island's rugged coastline.
