All our Newfoundland collections:
Newfoundland is a landscape unto itself, its rocky bays may be filled with icebergs, puffins may swoop in the sunshine, or whales may breach and bask. It's also a culture unto itself; there are tiny fishing villages where they have their own dialects - some of them more Dublin than Toronto, there are Viking remains, wonderfully historic towns and cities which have remained unchanged since their heydays as fishing behemoths, and a surprisingly modern and lively capital, St. John’s. Our Guru’s recommendations for the best places to stay in Newfoundland range from family run B&Bs to incredible feats of architecture.
One of the reasons Newfoundland has so much of its own character is that it only joined Canada in 1949 (before that it was a British colony), but the region’s remoteness also has a lot to do with it. As does the landscape itself. It’s dramatic and extremely beautiful, from the varied coastline to the varied interior. And lots of water-versus-rock drama everywhere you look.
Newfoundland is a big place, but Western Newfoundland is where you’ll find the Gros Morne National Park, the Long Range Mountains and L’Anse aux Meadows and many of the old Viking settlements and relics. Central Newfoundland is where you’ll find Fogo Island and the Change Islands, plus many of the other islands and Gander International Airport. And Eastern Newfoundland has St. John’s.
It’s big, but it’s also famously friendly, and even though you might not understand the dialect to begin with, you’ll know you’re being welcomed.
There’s a lot to see and do here, so if you want to see all of Newfoundland you’ll probably want to choose several of our Guru’s recommendations for the best places to stay in Newfoundland to use as bases. Some of the highlights might include:
