Heading to Newfoundland?


Every RVer should include a tour of this laid-back quaint hospitable province in their travels. Years of traditions, rich history, down home culture, tasty food and mega hospitality plus scenery second to none awaits. Sights around every bend appear more picturesque than the outstanding vista you just passed.

Full service campgrounds are plentiful - but because there are numerous caravans enjoying the sites of the Island – it is wise to make reservations. A trip of several weeks may not be long enough.

Many RVers take the short ferry (5-6 hours) to Port aux Basque and return to North Sydney, Nova Scotia from Argenetia (14 hours). Prices are determined by number of passengers and length of the RV and if you are taking the short or long ferry.

NOTE: If at first look, the price of the Ferry seems costly, just associate it as the cost of a gas/fuel fill-up to drive for the same length of time.

For Ferry details, contact Marine Atlantic Ferry Terminal at 1-800-341-7981 (Press O for assistance). Newfoundland (Nfld) Tourism Info – 1- 800-563-6353
