Newfoundland & Labrador
You’re always welcome on the “rock”, in Newfoundland and Labrador
Newfoundland and Labrador: craggy, colourful and nothing short of spectacular. There’s no better way to explore this scenic province than with Ambassatours Gray Line. Our kilted guides and drivers will take you through tiny villages dating back to the Vikings; manoeuver you through the winding streets of St. John’s, perhaps even introduce you to the joys of “Screech” – we don’t want to spoil the surprise of that one! And everywhere you go, you’ll hear music: Celtic music, classical music, rock (of course!), country, soul and more.
So many things to look forward to:
Hiking: The Viking Trail, which stretches from the province’s west coast to southern Labrador. Where streams teem with salmon, wildlife frolics in the forests and some of the rarest plants on the planet grow.
Keeping Watch: For black bears, arctic hares, caribou and moose that roam at will through Gros Morne National Park. Where architectural records have provided evidence of human history, dating back 3500 years. Don’t forget to watch out for huge humpback whales, and icebergs – many of which are believed to be among the largest in the world.
Becoming an “Honourary Newfoundlander": By enjoying, or enduring, a “screech-in” ceremony. We hope you have a strong head for spirits!
Exploring: Our capital, St. John’s, with its steep, twisty streets brightened by houses in many hues; and, of course, Signal Hill where, on December 12, 1901, the first transatlantic wireless transmission was received by Guglielmo Marconi. The transmission originated from his Poldhu Wireless Station in Cornwall, England.
