Overview

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.

    Great Guide for a Remote Place!

    This was a great buy, and pretty much your ONLY choice in printed travel reference if you are going to Newfoundland and Labrador. The internet is useful, but unless you find it useful to print out and collate many disparate sources, you probably should get a book instead. This isn't the kind of destination that you can probably ask friends about - while a gorgeous, ruggedly beautiful place, it's not a top vacation spot! - so you will definitely want to consult a book before you find yourself there with no good leads on where to eat, where to stay, what to visit, what to do, etc. Frommer's, as usual, has put together everything useful about this destination in one place. I found it especially useful regarding the dates certain attractions are open. One doesn't want to drive many hundreds of miles across this vast and isolated land only to find that the thing you wanted to visit hasn't opened yet for the season!
