As terrible as the Newfoundland weather can be throughout the winter months, it provides excellent opportunities for snow and ice related activities that are not possible in the summer. If you plan on visiting Newfoundland this winter, here are some activities you can fit into your schedule:
Scott's Cove Park
Located just below St. Christopher's Hotel is Scott's Cove Park. Take a leisurely stroll on the boardwalk along the harbour and visit the multicoloured kiosks for a souvenir of your journey. In the summer season, live entertainment at the park is available in the evenings.
The Newfoundland Trailway begins at the Port aux Basques Railway Heritage Centre. The trail has been developed through the process of improving the abandoned railway bed left from the Newfoundland Railway and is ideal for hiking, bicycling, backpacking and for ATV use.
Railway Heritage Centre
Not far from the Memorial Park is the Port aux Basques Railway Heritage Centre. This site reflects the voyages that began over 100 years ago, when the railway was connected with the Gulf Ferry for travel to mainland Canada and beyond. Take a walk back in time to recapture the importance of the railway to Newfoundland's history and to have a firsthand look at the legacy that the railway left behind.
Stroll along Scott's Cove Park in Port aux Basques located below St. Christopher's Hotel. Follow the boardwalk along the harbour and visit the multicoloured kiosks along the way. During the summer season, enjoy live entertainment in the evenings in the park.
