Discover Newfoundland & Labrador

Welcome to Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada, the most easterly edge of North America.

This is where the sun rises first. Where Vikings landed over 1,000 years ago. This place is home to the oldest European settlement and one of the oldest cities in North America, but has been a province of Canada for barely 65 years. A vast land, with a relatively small population, Newfoundland and Labrador has some of the friendliest people you'll ever meet. Here, you can experience a solitary wilderness one day and immerse yourself in a vibrant culture the next. This is a land of rich history and natural wonders: stunning coastlines, breaching whales, icebergs, and some of the most incredible skyscapes you'll ever see.

Who knew that arriving here could be such a departure?

Travelling here by plane is a popular option, and major airlines fly into multiple destinations. Flying time to St. John’s is about 3.5 hours from Toronto, and about 5 hours from London or Dublin. There are regional airlines which service smaller destinations and operate flights within the province.
