Hidden Newfoundland: 120+ ghost towns, natural wonders, and other off-the-beaten-path destinations

Newfoundland and Labrador has much more to offer than what is found in tourism guides. For explorers both local and from away who wish to step off the beaten track, this guide is for you.

This province is filled with geologic wonders, mysterious histories, curious structures, and off-the-beaten-path destinations. From unexplored cave systems to the remains of Cold War-era aircraft, from deteriorating churches in long resettled communities to abandoned air force bases, from the remains of Newfoundland’s first pulp mill to the intricate mines below many communities, this book will inspire wonder and curiosity—and raise awareness of the many unusual and peculiar locations that are nestled throughout this province.

Hidden Newfoundland describes over 80 of these marvelous, sometimes mysterious places. Each site descriptions includes historical context, information about the area and, of course, insider’s directions for how to get there.
