Newfoundland – Oldest Colony and Newest Province.
Known as ‘England’s Oldest Colony and Canada’s newest Province’, the Canadian Province of Newfoundland and Labrador is Europe's closest neighbor on the North American Continent. For centuries its economy was dominated by the famous Grand Banks cod fishery, pursued by hardy people for the West of England and the South-East of Ireland who settled in a multitude of tiny fishing communities studded along the forbidding coastline.
For many the Trans-Labrador 500, a road cut through the wilderness is a tune up and test track for those wondering if adventure travel is for them, many add Newfoundland so they can time manage, use ferry boat transportation and add another destination. There are two great informative sites for traveling, one is by Bruno Valeri's site here and other is Ride the Rock , the later has links for accommodations, eating establishments, and tourist sites.
