Down To Earth

This isn’t the kind of city break that skimps on nature. In fact, St. John’s is surrounded by whales, icebergs, seabirds, hiking trails, lighthouses, and dramatic scenery, not to mention pristine parks, lakes, ponds, and walking trails inside the city. Here, you can sample the history and traditions that come with a 500-year-old port city, and still trek along the rugged coastline in search of that perfect photo opp.

As many businesses have experienced operational changes under COVID-19 restrictions, we strongly recommend contacting them directly to confirm details before planning your visit.
