Where to go on Newfoundland? Which are the absolute must-sees? Which places can't be missed?
These are just some of the questions people ask me oftenly. Giving an unambigous answer to these questions is impossible. It all depends on how long you are going to stay on Newfoundland. Unless you like to sit and drive in your car all day, do not try to go and see the Avalon Peninsula and the Northern Peninsula and Port-aux-Basques in one trip, if you don't have one week or more to spend. This is because of the long distances and driving times.

My advice is: take your time. A fortnight will allow you to visit a good many parts of Newfoundland, but three weeks or more would even be better.

Absolute must-sees, that should not be missed, are:

And - but it's hard to miss that - there is of course the scenic coast of Newfoundland with its sheltered coves and picturesque outports.
