About St. John's
Newfoundland and Labrador is the youngest province in Canada, and yet is home to one of the oldest streets in North America that has been welcoming adventurers from all corners of the world for over 500 years! As the province's capital city, St John's is rich in culture, history and maritime heritage, all packaged in a compact, urban environment.
As one walks through the winding alleyways of its vibrant downtown, visitors encounter a colourful tapestry of experiences unfolding before their eyes. But it's the colourful characters who are most memorable, in a place where strangers quickly become friends, and the local vernacular has one smiling and scratching one's head all at once. Performances abound: sing along. Toe tapping is welcome!
Thirsting for adventure? It's easily quenched by exploring the dramatic coastline on foot, or enjoying a day on a boat on the bay having close encounters with humpback whales, puffins, or icebergs (and maybe all three!). Beautiful vistas, unique culinary pleasures, and unique architecture are just tiny slices of an urban experience that will feel like no other.
Colourful experiences. Colourful characters. Colourful encounters. Come and join us in St. John's for GeoSt.John's 2019!
