Summary

A fascinating history, a vibrant contemporary culture, the friendliest people, and an untamed wild. Newfoundland & Labrador is an incredible vacation destination, boasting two UNESCO World Heritage Sites; the only authentic Viking settlement in North America; the rugged beauty of the Atlantic coastline; and the historic city of St. John's, offering shopping, amazing seafood, and lively nightlife. Along Newfoundland & Labrador's 10,000-mile coastline, humpback whales migrate northwards while 10,000-year-old icebergs drift south. Newfoundland is also home to some of the world's most accessible seabird colonies, with more than 35 million gathering each year. Outdoor adventurers can walk or hike the beautiful East Coast Trail, stopping at Cape Spear, the easternmost point in North America. And for culture mavens, music and art festivals abound.Frommer's Newfoundland & Labrador covers each of the province's regions in detail, offering more information than any other major guide. It provides readers with all they need to plan an unforgettable vacation, from the best place to eat Jigg's Dinner (and information on exactly what that is) and catch some lively traditional music, to the best whale- and puffin-watching tours and perfect camping sites.
