LIVING HERITAGE

 

“Endearing Journeys That Authentically Showcase The Stories & Its Peoples — Past & Present”

Newfoundland and Labrador is a fantastic locale for your authentic enriching living heritage travel experience.

Above all, we are an old-world culture on the remote, eastern edge of North America with centuries of tradition, developed in relative isolation from the ‘mainland’.

Our tapestry is unique, a vibrant mix of Acadian, Breton, Basque, British Isles, French and Indigenous (Innu, Inuit, Métis and Mi’kmaq) peoples.

Also, we are well-known for our creativity, including exceptional architecture, artists and artisans, acclaimed heritage festivals, and theatrical productions. And of course our bustling music scene (rooted primarily in the British Isles but with its own uniquely evolved sound).

Furthermore, on your journey, you will be authentically charmed by our colourful residents and their warm, welcoming ways. This is a land and sea of fishermen, hunters, miners, and loggers after-all.

You will hear our countless dialects and make deep connections with ‘Townies’ and ‘Baymen’ for captivating, lasting memories.

NL’s proud European and indigenous histories are on display here too. From Viking huts and archaeological sites to ancient burial grounds and world-class museums and interpretive sites.

Along the way, you shall step back in time to a foreign land of explorers, harvesters, pirates, nomadic tribes, and plunderers.

On the foodie side, plenty of fresh, delicious culinary options await you from exotic and inventive to traditional and contemporary.

There are recipes you have definitely never heard of with names you surely won’t 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. This is accompanied by wild berries and locally farmed, cold-climate root vegetables.

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