Discover the Breathing Ocean
Take a boat tour, sea kayak or coastal train to catch a glimpse of the world's largest population of whales as they feed in the ocean. Ever heard of the water that breaths? Well, the one in Newfoundland does. Aside from being home to a vast population of whales and dolphins every summer, this ocean also harbors thousands of years old icebergs.
These icebergs show up at the east coast of Newfoundland every summer from the glaciers of Greenland. A fascinating view for both the locals and tourists; a proof that it's a scene you'd never get tired of watching.
And guess what? You can have a drink of this glacier water in its natural or spiked form. Yes, spikes like spiked rum, vodka, and even gin! How amazing would that be!
The Suspended Bridge Enroute to an Abandoned Village
Home to multiple provincial parks and three national parks, in Newfoundland you can get the vacation of your dreams. Overlooking the ocean, mountains and deep wilderness with hundreds of campsites, this is the perfect place for local hiking. Walk across a suspended bridge to an abandoned settlement in La Manche Provincial Park while viewing migratory birds and deep forests. Take a stroll at the beach or have a look at rare geology and incredible beauty at the UNESCO world heritage site, where you can get close enough to feel the splash of one of North America's high waterfalls.
Magical Sunset and Sunrise, just like in the Fairy Tales!
Low population density does come with a lot of advantages. A Clear sky not polluted with human activities of electricity is just one of them what's better than spending the night than to go stargazing and have a beautiful view of the Milky Way or taking pictures of magical sunsets and sunrise at the Terra Nova National Park and Dark sky preserve. Just like in the fairy tales, these views are breathing, and words can't describe how beautiful they are.
Watch the mystical Northern Lights, polar bears, and caribou at torngat mountains; one of the last untamed and unexplored places in the world.
