This wild and rugged land is anything but small. 700 kilometres of road stretches north to south through Western Newfoundland.

Here you will find abundant breathing room, a unique geological history going back 1.25 billion years, and a relatively young human history – a mere 6,000 years old – that is still being uncovered today.


With ancient mountains, fjords, and thousands of kilometers of coastline, the region is more like a small country.
