Situated at tip of the North Atlantic, Newfoundland & Labrador is an adventurers and explorers paradise!
Newfoundland marks the point of the earliest European activity in North America and had been utilized in the very early years for both its mining resources and seasonal fishery where many would visit the land, though not stay until laters years. Early explorers have once mentioned that the ocean surrounding Newfoundland had been so highly abundant with fish that one could step off of the boat and walk on their backs to the shore. Outside of fishing, the island had been utilized for its rock and rich mineral deposits that lay from coast to coast from the east to the west.
It’s difficult to fathom who visited Newfoundland and left to sail elsewhere during the early days, though if there is one thing for certain much of the early history and pre-history of the province is still yet to be uncovered! From early settlers and inhabitants to the Vikings, Newfoundland & Labrador is a question begging to be answered by not only historians, but for geologists, outdoor enthusiasts and professors alike!
