Experience St. John’s

At Signal Hill National Historic Site, stand at the top of Signal Hill for a stellar view of St. John’s. Plus, it’s definitely worth the windy trip up to see where the world’s first transatlantic wireless signal was received by Guglielmo Marconi. On the ascent, be sure to sample gelato from Newfoundland Chocolate Company Cafe in the visitor center.

Go underground to an excavated glacial formation to find Johnson Geo Centre. Cut from Signal Hill’s ancient rock, Johnson GEO Centre has a remarkable Titanic exhibit and the story of Our PlanetOur ProvinceOur PeopleOur Future & Space.

Stand on the most easterly point of the North American continent at Cape Spear. From this rugged cliff, you’ll see the 1836 Cape Spear Historic Lighthouse, the oldest surviving lighthouse in Newfoundland and Labrador. Explore the remnants of a WWII coastal defense bunker. Cape Spear is also an excellent location in the appropriate seasons for spotting icebergs, whales, and seabirds. There are also hiking trails that afford panoramic views.

A UNESCO World Heritage site, L’Anse aux Meadows National Historic Site, is set where Vikings lived circa 1000 AD, the first known evidence of Europeans in the Americas. You’ll see archaeological excavations of the Norse encampments and living history, and nearby is a reconstructed Viking settlement.

Book a tour to see the largest Atlantic puffin colony in North America. It’s half an hour south of St. John’s, off the coast of the Avalon Peninsula. in the Witless Bay Ecological Reserve, where you’ll witness more than 260,000 pairs nesting on the islands in late spring and early summer.

While you’re in the ecological reserve area, see the 1870 Ferryland Lighthouse, an hour’s drive from St. John’s. Did we mention that you can call ahead to the lighthouse and request a picnic lunch (May through September, 11:30 am – 4:30 pm)? Remember to wear comfortable shoes for the trek to the lighthouse.

    Please note … We can only hold this course if Newfoundland opens its borders before July 10. Otherwise our instructor from Ontario can’t get to the course (14-day quarantine is just too long).
