By Land

Newfoundland and Labrador has a well-maintained highway system and a charter motor coach service is available to centres throughout the island. The City of St. John’s has a bus system operated by the city’s Metrobus. The province is serviced by all of the national car rental agencies. It is recommended that you reserve your car rental well in advance.



With so many memorable places to see and things to do, finding the best way to travel around Newfoundland and Labrador is as important as figuring out where you want to go. Our province is much larger than most travellers realize, with lots of open country.

Approximately 29,000 kilometres of shoreline wrap around our communities, trails, forests, parks, and historic sites. It's a big place. You can't wake up in St. John's and have breakfast in Gros Morne National Park. Once you get the lay of the land, you’ll have no problem finding your way around.

There are two parts to the province – Newfoundland is the island and Labrador shares a border with Québec on mainland Canada. To connect to the island from Labrador and vice versa you can fly, or take a ferry across the Strait of Belle Isle.

When planning a trip here, remember: while there are many ways to travel around the province, it takes planning and forethought. Book as much in advance as possible and plan your itinerary; demand is high for car rentals, accommodations, and ferry services during peak season.

Destination St. John’s
Being the most easterly point in North America has its advantages.

For starters, we have our very own time zone. In Canada, the sun rises first on Newfoundland and Labrador. We’re the closest province to Europe, which means St. John’s harbour is a safe haven for transatlantic travelers and a bustling commercial port. We’re the youngest – and coolest – province in Canada, home to the oldest street in North America, and we’ve been welcoming adventurers from all corners of the world for over 500 years.

A city rich in culture, we honour tradition while embracing eclectic sophistication. Thirsting for adventure? It’s easily quenched by skirting the dramatic coastline on foot or enjoying a day on a boat. But it’s the colourful characters who are most memorable, in a place where strangers quickly become friends, and the local vernacular has you smiling and scratching your head all at once. Performances abound: sing along. Toe tapping is welcome.

Colourful experiences. Colourful characters. Colourful encounters. Make your destination St. John’s—you’ll be glad you did. Please visit Destination St. John’s for more information!
