Quirpon Island

Sleep in a Lighthouse

The 4-star Quirpon Island Lighthouse Hotel perches you right alongside migrating whales and floating icebergs. On its rocky, mossy and barren island, the lighthouse is exposed to the storms and winds of the Atlantic. Ride them out in the dining room with some hot chocolate and home-made bakeapple pie, safe with the knowledge that lighthouses are built to survive hurricane-force gales and monster waves.

Where to Stay : Quirpon Island Lighthouse

Getting There : The lighthouse is located on Quirpon Island at the northernmost tip of Newfoundland: follow the signs to Quirpon on the Viking Trail, 5 km before L’ Anse aux Meadows. Quirpon is tiny and you’ll be able to find the dock easy.

Note from Robin : The Lighthouse has been upgraded to 4-stars by Canada Select, with additional boardwalks, and private bathrooms. Hiking along the island is a great way to find views of icebergs and whales. Quirpon Island is also featured as part of Great Canadian Trail’s 3-day Vikings, Whales and Icebergs itinerary.
