Around here, there's no such thing as an accidental tourist. Newfoundland and Labrador is not Disneyland. It's a harsh and beautifully rugged destination with 29,000 kilometres of pristine coastline, perched at the most easterly edge of North America. Our landscape is full of a strange and terrible beauty. Our towns and cities, soaked in centuries of colourful history and culture, and we have perhaps the most genuine, creative and warmly funny people you're ever likely to meet.
With an average annual snowfall of 16 feet and a predisposition for fun, Newfoundland and Labrador does winter in a way that makes you forget you ever cared for summer at all. With our perfect powder, exhilarating slopes, and beautiful backcountry, we own the season. Of course skiing, snowboarding and snowmobiling are givens, but did you also know you can zip line and even dog sled? And all this activity just makes your downtime, flaking out in a cosy cabin and enjoying some of the best entertainment and cuisine in North America all the sweeter.
Language is one of Newfoundland and Labrador's most charming and irresistible qualities. It's a fascinating mosaic of words, phrases, and accents that can turn a simple chat into the conversation of a lifetime.
And the only thing more interesting than the hundreds of dialects of English you'll find here, more than any where else in the world, are the real, genuine characters who speak them.
So sit back, relax, and let Chris, Tolson, Nicole, Jim, and Michelle take you on an oratorical jaunt like you've never heard before.
And don't worry. If you miss a word or a phrase, you can always look it up in our very own Dictionary of Newfoundland English.
And you thought the houses were the only colourful things around here. Truth be told, there’s a smile to this place, a little grin that breathes in every bay, bight, and tickle. And we wouldn’t want it any other way.
It’s not like we’re against grid plans and committees. It’s just that with places like Comfort Cove, Happy Adventure, and Ha Ha Bay we tend to see things a little bit differently.
Around here, you never know where you’ll find yourself.
What else would you expect from a place with its very own time zone?
At the very edge of the continent, half an hour off kilter with the rest of the world, there's a tendency towards the unexpected. So why not breathe it all in and soak it all up? Feel free to take your time. Trust us, in Newfoundland & Labrador, there's plenty of it.
