With so many memorable things to see and do here, finding your way around is as important as figuring out where you want to go.
If you’re already in Canada, you can arrive in Newfoundland and Labrador by car, ferry, or plane.
When planning how to get here, be sure to keep the size of the province in mind. If you’re travelling to western Newfoundland, flying into Deer Lake Regional Airport would be your best option. Similarly, St. John’s International Airport is the best entry point for those coming to the Avalon Peninsula and eastern Newfoundland. Gander International Airport is a good option for the central region of the island. Happy Valley-Goose Bay Airport is ideal for central Labrador and those taking charters north, and Wabush serves western Labrador.
One of the best things about this place is the endless supply of wide-open space, complete with room to work, relax, and, most of all, breathe. And it’s all thanks to how vast our province is. To give you a better idea of size, Newfoundland and Labrador is more than three times the total area of Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, and Prince Edward Island combined.
Once in the province, you have a number of options to get around. Walking and biking are practical choices, although both can be challenging during the winter months. Public Transportation in St. John’s and surrounding areas are served by Metrobus, while Corner Brook and surrounding areas are served by Corner Brook Transit. Taxis are available in larger centres. And many people choose a personal pre-owned or new vehicle as their primary transportation method if their budget allows.
