About Newfoundland and Labrador
Labrador & Newfoundland is sparsely populated with 181,000, a third of the population, living in the capital St Johns, offering a huge diversity of scenery from Arctic Tundra, mountains, and fjords to quaint fishing villages. The Torgnat Mountains National park offers nearly 10,000 square kilometres of wilderness with no roads and no signs telling you where to go or what to see, just acres of space to explore. Polar Bears inhabit the northern regions and you can encounter black bears and moose as you head further south.

Beyond the Ordinary
Ramah Chert is a rare semi- translucent rock that has been used for stone tool making for around 7000 years. In the bays around Saglek Fiord to Nachvak you can still find these exquisitely made tools close to the ancient tent rings from arrow heads to micro- blades and piles of flakes.
