Places Welcoming You

Take a loop through the southwest edge of one of Canada’s untamed provinces. See icebergs, whales and stunning sea birds on your trip. Cap your journey with a tall pint of ail in a pub at St. Johns

1) St. Johns

Starting Point

Perched along the steep hills of a sheltered harbor, the 500-year-old capital of Newfoundland combines modern luxury and small-town charm to create one of the most unique destinations in North America. The province’s largest city is known for its lively pub life: newcomers are invited to kiss a codfish followed by a shot of Screech, a popular rum. Spellbinding views over the Atlantic Ocean, colorful row houses, world-class attractions and locals with the most unique accent west of Ireland make this town an alluring destination.

2) St. Mary’s

Drive 74 miles, 1 hour,  25 minutes

See stunning views from dramatic cliffs on this stop. Cape St. Mary’s Ecological Reserve is a wonderland for birdwatchers and explorers alike. Thousands of gulls, razorbills, common murres, black-legged kittiwakes, northern gannets and double-crested and great cormorants nest here. It’s one of seven protected seabird ecological reserves on the planet, and its natural beauty makes it perfect for nature walks and family adventures.
