Visting St. John's
From ice-bergs to humpback whales, to the beginning of the summer festival season, June is a great time to visit Newfoundland and Labrador.
With hiking trails that lead you from the heart of the city, through a traditional fishing village, and up to the highest peaks above the Atlantic Ocean, some of Canada's best new restaurants, and a musical and cultural scene that never stops, you might want to consider staying a few extra days.
You'll definitely want to take some time to explore St. John's, but we also recommend that you consider spending some time outside of the city. Newfoundland and Labrador tourism offers a great website to help you plan your trip, including a live chat feature.
- We're not going to lie- you'll want to bring a jacket. Even though it's usually quite lovely here in June, our proximity to the sea means that a cool wind can whip up in no time.
- If you're looking to book a hotel or car, consider doing it early. St. John's is a busy place during the tourism season, so it's better to plan ahead rather than be disappointed.
- Get off the beaten path. This is a destination that is made for unusual adventures and new experiences. The people here really are friendly and the opportunities to jump in are pretty much endless!
