Newfoundland & Labrador is a destination like no other and we build themes that are indeed, incomparable. Newfoundland boasts a unique ‘Half Hour’ time zone and a variety of geological phenomenon that mixes stone from Africa, Europe and North America. We are a funnel for 1000’s of species of migrating fish, whales and birds. We are the birthplace of transatlantic flight and communication systems – instantly bridging the gap between Europe & North America. We've welcomed every fishing nation in the world for several centuries – Basques, Spaniard, French, Dutch, English, Irish, Welsh and Irish all mingled, worked, fought and settled these shores together. The Vikings landed in Newfoundland over 1000 years ago and we have one of the most diverse and intriguing native histories on the planet with archaeological discoveries outlining several attempts of civilization dating back to 5000 BC. The ‘Titanic’ plays heavily on our history. We also played a prominent role in both the first and Second World Wars as the first and last port on the eastern seaboard. We welcomed thousands of refugees from every corner of the planet during the 911 terrorist attacks. There’s ‘Jelly Bean Row’, place names like Quidi Vidi and “come by Chance’ and our diverse culinary background has been identified as the source for some of latest crazes in the foodie world. We are Canada’s newest province and we've offered up some of the most colourful political characters in Canadian history. We boast over 10,000 miles of coastline and one of the most diverse fisheries in the world. We once issued our own stamps and currency and we actually drove on the other side of the road for many years.
Newfoundland & Labrador – A meeting of the mind and a melding of the soul
