When Newfoundlanders heard I would be visiting the province for the first time, they didn’t ask me if I would be exploring Gros Morne National Park or tracking icebergs in Twillingate. A far more pressing concern was: where and how would I get screeched in?
Within your own province, I guarantee there’s an extraordinary, bucket list experience that’s ready, finally, for you to tick off. No more excuses. Welcome to the Summer of Local.
Fogo Island is not so much a place as a state of mind. With its long Maritime history, the largest offshore island in Newfoundland is a gentle world of coloured clapboard houses, sea cliff footpaths, lush forest and warm hospitality. Set against a striking coastline, an inspired arts scene has breathed new life into Fogo’s struggling fishing communities.
Anyone who spends time in one of Canada's national parks is bound to feel something: A sensory appreciation for the natural beauty; achievement for a physical pursuit like hiking, climbing, kayaking or biking, and a re-connection to our pristine forests, mountains, rivers, valleys and plains.
