St. John’s & The Peninsulas

One of the oldest cities in North America, St. John’s, Newfoundland & Labrador, has a fine harbour, surrounded by pretty buildings and lots of bars and restaurants many of which have live music while you eat.

St. John’s is an excellent starting point for your Newfoundland & Labrador holiday. Be sure to visit Signal Hill which was the reception point of the first transatlantic wireless signal by Guglielmo Marconi in 1901.

Another highlight of your Newfoundland & Labrador holiday will be Cape Spear, the most easterly point of North America and the Witless Bay Ecological Reserve to see the puffins, whales and Icebergs (best time June).
