Newfoundland and Labrador Information
Newfoundland and Labrador is huge! Spanning over an area of 405,720 km, if it were a part of the USA, it would rank fourth in size after Alaska, Texas and California. The island of Newfoundland itself is almost 25,000 kilometers, which is larger than Ireland! Newfoundland and Labrador is separated into five different regions: Avalon, Eastern, Central, Western and Labrador. There are so many different places in Newfoundland and Labrador that are just waiting to be explored: Labrador City, Mary's Harbour, Forteau, Twillingate, Corner Brook, Grand Falls - Windsor, Bonavista, Fortune, and St. John's to start.
The ocean surrounding Newfoundland is home to more than twenty species of whales at one time of the year or another, making Newfoundland one of the best whale watching locations in the world! Some species of whales found around Newfoundland are humpback whales, fin whales, minke whales, and sperm whales.
Another favorite and rather exciting activity in Newfoundland and Labrador is St. John's Haunted Hike. This is a walking ghost tour of the dark back lanes of historic St. John's. Your host, Reverend Thomas Wyckham Jarvis, is extremely well versed in Grimm Tales of the Vengeful Deceased, Murthers of Gruesome Dispatch, Curious Manifestations of the Holy Ghost and Historical Miscellanea.
