About Newfoundland and Labrador

Now before you animal lovers get too excited, big fluffy dogs don't run around the streets here (we checked).

Newfoundland and Labrador is, however, a fantastic vacation spot. Whether you want to take in the history, try something adventurous or just relax, this is the place for you.

About Newfoundland and Labrador

Newfoundland and Labrador is the most easterly province of Canada. It's a small collection of islands with a lot to offer.

Though it's tempting to stay in St John's - the capital - it's also worth looking at other areas for a more unusual stay. FlipKey has a wide variety of Newfoundland and Labrador vacation rentals, so why not start looking?

The history of this province can be traced back over 9,000 years, right back to when the Beothuk tribes started living here. Visit one of the many museums to learn more about them!

Its position on the Atlantic, and the fact that it’s made up of lots of little islands, means that Newfoundland and Labrador's climate varies quite a lot. The summers are cool, and the winter sees a bit of snow. 

What to do in Newfoundland and Labrador

There's so much to do on these islands, it's hard to know where to start.

To make sure you see all that's on offer, we suggest taking a boat tour and exploring the main islands. While you're out on the water you'll see huge icebergs and probably some humpback whales - don't forget to bring your camera!

There are many lighthouses on the islands, but our favorite is the Ferryland lighthouse. Not only is it one of the oldest - it was built in the 1870s - but they do delicious gourmet lunches! Just pick a spot outside and enjoy.

While we're talking about food, you must try some of the wild Atlantic salmon! You'll never be too far from a plate of fish and chips during this vacation.

For the adventurous, follow a local guide on a harvesting rail up the Torngat mountains. The vast wilderness is spectacular and you may see Inuits hunt, fish and travel as they've done for centuries.

Top Newfoundland and Labrador travel tips

You won't need to worry about your French vocabulary here. Most of the locals speak English.

Gratuities aren't usually included in Canadian bars and restaurants, so you'll be expected to leave a tip. Between 10-15% is standard.

An extra jumper won't go amiss on this vacation, either. Even in the summer, the sea breeze can be a bit harsh. But it's made worth it when you see a whale or two on the horizon.
