Late Comers Welcome

Our favourite friendly giants haven’t left us just yet. This means it’s not too late to see whales if you’re visiting Newfoundland and Labrador in August or early fall. Just head to Southern Labrador, or the tip of the Northern Peninsula in Newfoundland for a chance to see orcas, minkes, and humpbacks. If you’re interested in studying these large mammals more in depth, Wildland Tours hosts an orca expedition each year.

Get the inside scoop on where bald eagles nest, feed and fly by taking a guided tour with Four Seasons Tours in Western Newfoundland.

Wetlands Wonders

If you’re a nature lover, the Grand Codroy Wetlands spans an impressive 925 hectares of pristine marshland. This expansive land is home to many types of migrating waterfowl such as Black Duck, Green-winged Teal, American Widgeon, Greater Scaup, and Canada Goose. Be sure to stop by the Grand Codroy Wetlands Interpretation Centre and learn why this lush habitat is classified as A Wetlands of International Importance. Linkum Tours offers a three-day tour around the area and a field checklist of birds of the Codroy Valley. Can you spot them all?
