Welcome to Western Newfoundland

An Adventure Awaits

Western Newfoundland is anything but small. It stretches from the gateway ferry port of Channel-Port aux Basques on the Southwest corner of the island of Newfoundland to the Viking site at the tip of the Great Northern Peninsula. 700 kilometres of road separates the two ends of Western Newfoundland.

This wild and rugged land boasts abundant breathing room and a unique geological history going back 1.25 billion years, as well as a relatively young human history - a mere 4,500 years old - that is still being uncovered today. With ancient mountains, fjords, and thousands of miles of coastline, the region is more like a small country.
