Some Natural Wonders in Newfoundland and Labrador

Newfoundland and Labrador is an edgy place. Just ask the Flat Earth Society which says one of the four corners of the world can be found here. Located on the eastern edge of North America, it’s where birds, bergs and whales share space in the ocean. Whales migrate north as bergs drift south, their paths crossing beneath the gaze of millions of seabirds. Sometimes you can see all three at once, either from shore or from a tour boat. Ever smelled the air from a 10,000-year-old berg? It’s so old, it’s fresh.

Bald eagles might be the most sought-after raptor, and you’ll find them nesting in Terra Nova National Park, among other places. Because of its location on migration flyways, Newfoundland and Labrador is a good place to spot rarities, especially on headlands, those edges of the earth.

This place is edgy in another way. Both land and sea straddle the boundaries of plant colonies. In some places is the southernmost edge of northern alpine plants, and in other the northernmost reach of underwater species.

There are rare orchids, including one that grows nowhere else, the Burnt Cape Cinquefoil.

And because Newfoundland and Labrador is only a few hours by air from major centres, it’s easy to get here. When you do, Witless Bay Ecological Reserve, with its puffins and humpbacks, is half an hour from St. John’s and is patrolled by half a dozen tour boats. The most accessible seabird colony in eastern Canada is Cape St. Mary’s Ecological Reserve where thousands of golden-headed Northern Gannets nest atop a sea stack 50 feet from a clifftop viewing point.

Gros Morne National Park, on the west coast of the Island of Newfoundland, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It’s one of the great natural wonders of the world, with its fjords, rare rocks, ancient mountains and inspiring landscapes. It will change you.
