Living Heritage

 “Endearing Journeys Authentically Showcasing The Stories And Its Peoples”

NL is a world-class locale for that authentic and enriching heritage travel experience. It is an ole-world enclave on the remote, eastern fringes of North America with centuries of tradition developed in relative isolation from the ‘mainland’ continent.

NL’s cultural tapestry is unique and mixed, a vibrant collage of peoples including Acadian, Breton, Basque, British Isles, French, and Indigenous (Innu, Inuit, Métis, and Mi’kmaq).

On your journey here, you will be authentically charmed by its colourful residents and their warm, welcoming ways. This is a land and sea of fishers, hunters, miners, and loggers after-all. You will hear their countless dialects and make deep connections with ‘Townies’ and ‘Baymen’ for captivating, lasting memories.

NL is well known for its creativity too, boasting exceptional architecture and artisans, acclaimed festivals and theatrical productions, and of course, its bustling music scene (rooted primarily in the British Isles, but with its own uniquely evolved sound).

NL’s proud history is on display here as well with viking huts, archaeological sites, ancient indigenous burial grounds, and world-class museums and interpretive sites. Along the way, you will step back in time to a foreign land of explorers, harvesters, pirates, nomadic tribes, and plunderers.

On the foodie side, plenty of fresh, delicious, and authentic culinary options await you, from exotic and inventive to traditional and contemporary. There are recipes here you have definitely never heard of with names you surely will not forget, dishes like cod tongues, pitsik, flippers, brewis, toutons, figgy duff, and bakeapple. Seafood (cod, lobster, salmon, scallops, and seal) and wild game (moose and rabbit) are local favourites here with wild berries and locally farmed, cold-climate root vegetables often rounding out the culinary experience.

In NL, limitless opportunities exist to immerse yourself in their rich history, heritage, and culture.
