About the Central Region

Right in the heart of Newfoundland, the central region contains some of the best outdoor experiences to be found in the province. It's where you can visit Iceberg Alley – the stretch of coastline along which towers of ancient ice majestically float down from Greenland – and where whales gather in large numbers to feed, play and people-watch.

The central region also boasts 55 marked trails and, as you explore, you'll see clapboard houses sitting atop rocky coasts, and wharves and boats testifying to the continuing importance of the centuries-old fishing industry. Most of the people living here descended from West Country fishermen who settled the shores more than two centuries ago. The region also has a rich aboriginal history that dates back as far as 5,000 years and includes the Beothuks as well as the Dorset people who carved soapstone pots at Newfoundland's first quarry.

Central is a perfect place to take a boat trip, or to do both sea and river kayaking. It's also worth visiting Terra Nova National Park while you're here – 400 square kilometres of boreal forest and coastline, ideal for whale watching, birdwatching, hiking, golfing and camping.

No words can truly capture the experience of coming face-to-face with a giant of the ocean. Here, we're visited annually by 26 species of whales and 6 different types of icebergs. There's a certain sense of awe that accompanies these encounters, and you begin to appreciate why no trip to Newfoundland is complete without visiting this region known as Adventure Central – just minutes from Gander, and a short drive from St. John's and Deer Lake.

Starting at $6 Per Person
A short boardwalk trail from the interpretation centre leads to the Spirit Garden. This is dedicated as a place for reflection on the lives of the Beothuk peoples, their culture, and the impact first contact had on them. It is a place of healing and reconciliation where you may find your own spirit. The Beothuk often hung tokens from trees & visitors are encouraged to leave their own offering to honour the Beothuk. You can collect suitable natural materials in the centre to make your own.

    The Dorset Trail is a land of complex geology and associated mineral deposits that underlie steep, thickly wooded hills. This highway is named for the Dorset Eskimos who lived — and quarried — here 1,500 years ago. Even earlier, the Maritime Archaic Indians inhabited the area and may have exploited its minerals. But both the aboriginals and early European settlers came originally for fish, game and timber.
