Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada

Separated by the Strait of Belle Isle, Newfoundland (an island) and Labrador (connected to mainland Canada) along with more than 7,000 tiny islands, comprise the province. The rugged wilderness, blue-green glaciers, undulating mountain ranges, narrow fjords, rocky coastlines and maritime lifestyle that enticed early explorers, continue to draw adventure-seekers today. Natural wonders abound – from unspoilt hiking trails where moose sightings are common to craggy sea-cliffs where you could spy the flick of a humpback whale tail. There is also a rich history and mix of French, Irish, English and Aboriginal inhabitants who contribute to a culture of artist collectives, arts and crafts museums, theatre and a folk music tradition. However you chose to explore, be prepared to give yourself over to the tranquil, yet powerful, pull of life by the sea.
