Maps for the Newfoundland Traveller

The island of Newfoundland is larger than the entire U.K.  Planning a trip is difficult. These maps make great tools.  The Eastern Newfoundland MapGuide was created through a collaborative process with the local people of eastern Newfoundland and the National Geographic Society to highlight the natural, historic, and cultural assets unique to the area.

 

>National Geographic Destination Map of Newfoundland

Like a travel guide, adventurers, hikers and walkers, history buffs, foodies, birders and sightseers can discover unique destinations based on recommendations from those who know best—residents of the eastern Newfoundland region. CapeRace, the co-founder of this project, partnered with the National Geographic Society to capture the most interesting points of interest in eastern Newfoundland. The Newfoundland Geotourism Project seeks to celebrate the eastern Newfoundland region as a world-class tourism destination, while contributing to the economic health of the region by promoting sustainable and responsible travel.

>Three Days in St. John's Walking MapGuide Experience

A unique "Insider's Guide" to experiencing St. John's that has colourful residents of the city marked as points of interest. The mapguide draws you into the local community in ways you'll never imagine, detailing one-of-a-kind places integral to a distinctive character of place. We call it "People POI". It has a marked route that takes you through the main streets, the back streets and the coastal trails of the city. If your boots hit the ground on the marked route over 2-3 days you will have seen the entire city the way it needs to be seen. Special people, special shops, dramatic coastal trails and of course, great pubs.

Geotourism is defined as tourism that sustains or enhances the geographical character of a place—its environment, culture, aesthetics, heritage, and the well-being of its residents. Geotourism incorporates the concept of sustainable tourism—that destinations should remain unspoiled for future generations—while allowing for ways to protect a place's character. Geotourism also takes a principle from its ecotourism cousin—that tourism revenue should promote conservation—and extends it to culture and history as well, that is, all distinctive assets of a place.
