    MAIN BODY COPY

    Newfoundland & Labrador is one of Canada's best kept secrets. Newfoundland, a separate island to Mainland Canada, boasts so much of what Canada is famous for. Fly into the Province's charming, colourful capital of St. John's - the gateway to the Province, and be greeted with the sincere warmth of an old friend, humpback whales and towering icebergs.

    The untamed wilderness of Labrador, which forms part of mainland Canada, promises wilderness adventures for intrepid explorers. Witness the largest caribou herd in the world and travel to the far north to the Torngat Mountains and stay in Inuit communities - a magical part of Northern Canada where Polar Bear and walrus call home.

    Newfoundland highlights

    The Island of Newfoundland is the size of England and often referred to as a mini Canada. You can expect almost everything that Canada is known for - aside from the big cities:

    • Wildlife encounters to include whales, moose, bears, puffins and eagles.
    • Mountains, forests and fjords.
    • Rivers, lakes and The Atlantic Ocean.
    • Fabulous dining and exciting nightlife.
    • Incredible places to stay - from the award-winning Fogo Island Inn to lighthouses, historic B&Bs, Oceanside cabins and luxury wilderness lodges.
    • Hiking, kayaking and other outdoor activities.
    • History, culture and heritage.

    There are four UNESCO World Heritage Sites to explore:

    • Visit Gros Morne National Park, a natural wonder 20 times older than the Rockies and home to Western Brook Pond fjords. The Long Range Mountains, the northernmost extent of the Appalachians, contain numerous glacially-carved fjords. One of the most spectacular is the Park’s largest lake, Western Brook Pond.
    • Head north to the L’Anse aux Meadows National Historic Site, the only authenticated Viking settlement in North America.
    • Hop on the Labrador ferry to Red Bay National Historic Site and experience the remnants of a 16th-century Basque whaling station – the first industrial site in North America.
    • You’ll find the oldest complex life forms on earth and the first appearance of skeletal organisms – some 565 million years old at our newest UNESCO World Heritage Site in Mistaken Point Ecological Reserve.

    Get a great ocean view from 29,000 kilometres (18,000 miles) of coastline, perfect for diverse and awe inspiring coastal drives. Stroll the laneways of picturesque historic towns and fishing villages nestled around fjords, inlets, coves, guts, bays, and tickles along the way. And take time out for a chat with the locals.

    Breathe in the purest fresh sea air along Iceberg Alley, where a sparkling spring parade of towering, 10,000-year-old icebergs unfolds every year, in a beautiful clutter of pristine white and azure blue. Bring extra batteries for your camera, to view from land or sea.

    Newfoundland boasts the world’s largest concentration of Hump­back Whales. When ancient icebergs drift south while humpback whales migrate north, they’re bound to cross paths. Meet 29 varieties of marine mammals. You’ll find more species, more often, in more places around here than anywhere else in North America.

    It is also home to some of the world’s largest and most accessible seabird colonies in North America. More than 35 million seabirds gather here every year. See northern gannets, kittiwakes, murres, Atlantic puffins, osprey, falcons, hawks, storm petrels, razorbills, and bald eagles at six ecological reserves, including the magnificent Cape St. Mary’s Ecological Reserve.

    You can visit archaeological sites and go back 9,000 years to the Maritime Archaic people (older then the pyramids), or the more recent Palaeo-Eskimo and Beothuk.

    If getting outdoors is your passion, hike along ancient footpaths to deep fjords, towering cliffs and sub-arctic barrens, through lush inland forests, and over the Earth’s mantle. These diverse trails and the fresh sea air will rejuvenate mind, body, and spirit. Take a sea kayak to caves, inlets, and secluded beaches along routes protected by offshore islands, and view the land from the sea.

    Take part in Newfoundland's culinary renaissance. You’ll relish the authentic cuisine and award-winning dishes from land and sea — cod tongues and cheeks, caribou, snow crab, salmon, moose, bakeapples, colourful wild berries, tea and lassy buns, toutons, and salt fish and brewis; all served up with a hearty and proud smile.

    When to visit

    Whale Watching: June – August

    Bird Watching: May – October

    Icebergs: April – July on the island, sometimes until August in Labrador.

    Walking, Hiking, Kayaking: May – October

    Early summer (May onwards), although still cool, is a great time to visit St. John's. Icebergs can still be seen as late as June from the city and whales make their way to the shores of Newfoundland to feed right through to August.

    July and August are the most popular months to visit and temperatures can reach as high as 25 degrees but can dip as low as 12 degrees. As Newfoundlanders say -"there is no such thing as bad weather - just bad clothing". Bring lots of layers.

    Summer activities continue through September to include golfing and hiking. Come October it's dry and wonderfully crisp. Newfoundland boasts a short but breath-taking fall foliage season with colours typically peaking in late September/early October.

    Widely considered as the specialist for Newfoundland experiences, Linkum Tours offer unique itineraries, ranging from relaxed touring holidays to pulse-racing soft adventures. Guides and hosts are Newfoundlanders, passionate about the place they live and preservation of the environment for future generations. Although whales leaping through the air, moose wandering out of the dawn mist and icebergs appearing on the horizon are unquestionably memorable, the small touches such as local dining and quaint accommodations in idyllic locations set these tours apart. A choice of nine itineraries have been created to showcase Newfoundland, and each can be completely self-guided, semi-guided with a host leading you through some experiences, or fully-guided whereby a guide will accompany you the whole way. Owning two award-winning lighthouse inns; Quirpon Lighthouse Inn and Cape Anguille Lighthouse Inn, which offer comfort, history and scenic ocean views, you can include a stay in one or both of these operational lights which continue to guide voyaging mariners, undoubtedly adding a unique experience to any Newfoundland holiday.

    Now that you have wandered by land it is time to visit the whales by sea. Our zodiac will take you on an exploration of the coastline not only in search of the massive wonders of this area but also the subtle beauty - kittiwake colonies and eider ducks nesting in tiny coves where your boat can squeeze through ensuring fun and dozens of photos. Feeling less adventurous? Wander down to the indoor whale watching station with your books and have a good read – not to worry, the sound of the whales will tell you when to look up.

Born in Spain, Bonet’s childhood would be marked by the Spanish Civil War before migrating and creating works of art famous around the world.
