Most people don’t realize Newfoundland used to essentially be its own country. It was what’s known as a dominion which basically functioned the same way as an independent country up until 1934 when a British appointed commission started to rule it.

If you’re an angler then a trip to Newfoundland is likely to satisfy your desire for tight lines, pristine waters, and world-class fishing. Newfoundland is famous for salmon fishing, trout fishing, and of course, ocean fishing.

Canoeists, whitewater kayakers, and rafters can all be found enjoying Newfoundland’s Main River whitewater paddling. If you’re new to paddling and want to experience paddling the Main River, your best option is joining a commercial rafting trip which is almost exclusively offered in the spring. If you plan on kayaking, we want to be clear that this is a whitewater river and therefore suitable for whitewater kayaks, not sea kayaks. If you are paddling in a canoe, be sure it’s a canoe that’s suitable for whitewater and is outfitted for the same.
