Mother Nature’s theatre is only a few steps away. From icebergs to whale watching, the walking trails and boat tours offer views of the Atlantic Ocean and historic sites which bring with it surprises big and small.

A birding tour or hike along the coast will offer delights of over 350 species of birds and other marine life. Or, if more inclined to the indoors, delegates can happily enjoy freshly foraged, award-winning cuisine, take in live music along George Street, where toe tapping is always encouraged, or stroll through Newfoundland and Labrador’s largest public cultural space, The Rooms, where history, heritage and artistic expression come together.

“I wasn’t sure what to expect and I was overwhelmed with its exotic beauty. It is like Ireland and the Caribbean ‘squished together’… and then there are amazing people! I can’t wait to come ‘home’ again soon” – Bettyanne Sherrer, President, ProPlan Conference Planners.
