The Fives’ Best of Newfoundland

We’ve only been away from Newfoundland for a few days now, and we’re already feeling nostalgic for all that we did and saw during our six weeks there. To help us get through this hard transition to life on the mainland (if you can call Cape Breton Island the mainland), we’ve put together a list of some of our favorites.

Most Spectacular Sights


Waterfalls (this one is by Blow Me Down Mountain).


Icebergs (we spotted many on our travels through the Great Northern Peninsula from late-May through early-July),

Best Place to Visit


Goose Cove: A short drive from St. Anthony, we spent hours here watching whales and icebergs, climbing the rocky shoreline, and playing on the playground.

Favorite Thing to Do


Rock Climbing (the rugged coast offers endless opportunities)

Best Place to Go Swimming


Pistolet Bay Provincial Park (the water was refreshing, to say the least)

Best Food


Partridgeberry Jam (we put this on EVERYTHING)

Best Hike


Camel’s Back Trail, St. Lunaire-Griquet

Best Animal Watching


Moose, Caribou, Whales…Do we really have to choose?


What We’ll Miss the Most


The St. Anthony Public Library and the wonderful librarian there.
