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.

Western Words of Wisdom

"It's an island in the sky just north of the Northern Star and it's full of fairies, ghosts and goblins. It's as old as the stars (as cold as ice) and warm as embers."

Al Pittman, on Newfoundland
