About the Province
This is a big place – think California-size – with lots to discover and experience. And it’s an old place: There were people living here long before the pyramids were built, and it was the first place in North America to welcome Europeans over 1,000 years ago. Ours is a seafaring culture that mixes tradition with today, a refreshing and often surprising blend that travellers find exotic yet familiar. People here are rooted and enjoy welcoming newcomers.
The coast is famously rugged, and the ocean that helped carve it offers wonders like whales and icebergs, and adventures like diving to shipwrecks and sea kayaking in fjords. Trails take wanderers to mist-ringed sea stacks and hidden beaches, to chance encounters with little foxes and big moose, and birding hotspots offer birds-eye views that quickly become fixed in memory.
