Getting Here

Newfoundland is an island on the east coast of Canada so your options for getting here are taking a ferry from Nova Scotia or Labrador or flying.

It’s the thrill of the open road at speed. That’s what I like about Targa Newfoundland.

By Car and Ferry

Most travellers will take the ferry from Nova Scotia to either Port aux Basques or Argentia. There are also ferry routes for travelling between the island and Labrador.

By Plane

Major airlines fly into Newfoundland and Labrador. The two largest airports are in St. John’s and Gander and there are smaller airports in other locations. Flying time to St. John’s is about 3.5 hours from Toronto, and about 5 hours from London or Dublin.
