Flower's Cove Lighthouse

Reviewed By Kimberly1403 - Burlington Ontario

The Thrombolites are a must see. It is a short walk to the shore on a safe & lovely trail. Thrombolites are only found in two spots in the world, this being one of them. This is both educational & an easy hike.

Them Days Incorporated

Visiting Happy Valley-Goose Bay? A trip is not complete without a stop at Them Days, a charity dedicated to collecting, protecting and promoting the stories of Labrador. During the summer, we offer walking tours of historic Happy Valley. The rest of the time, we publish a quarterly oral history magazine and maintain an archive of Labrador materials. We have a permanent exhibit of historic photos, and we also have a gift shop of magazines, cards, colouring books, etc. A perfect place to learn about Labrador!

Reviewed By Parisisalwaysgood - Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada

There is a small Seating area where customers can leaf through old publications on Labrador, and look for specific historic articles. Step back in time for a look at "how it was" in the old days. Fascinating! The Staff ladies are very helpful and knowledgable...MoreThank you so much for this lovely review! We do so love it when we get visitors and will gladly help out with any questions our customers have!

Been here to see some of the local Performances along with the Creative Arts Festival that takes place in November and has Performances from school kids from the coast. Great Performances that show what is going on in their towns and cultures. The Seating is well sloped and allows everyone to have a good view.

We took the ferry, which operates in the summer months from Happy Valley -Goose Bay along the Labrador Coast. This ferry is mainly for locals who live in the 6 small towns along the way. It also delivers freight to these towns. It stops between 1 -3 hours at each town. You are able to get off when the ferry berths and walk around the towns. There are some cabins on the ferry (a few of these have ensuites) and also an open lounge area. Inexpensive meals are available in a canteen. We took some food and snacks with us as well.
We had calm seas for the whole journey. The scenery was spectacular and we were lucky to see icebergs although the iceberg season was almost over. There are some historic places to visit in some of the towns and some towns have craft shops selling Inu and Inuit art works and crafts.

Labrador Military Museum

Reviewed By Doebaby - Redwood City, California, United States

After spending 5 days driving most of Labrador my question is WHY? Labrador is vast, mostly empty with limited and relatively uninteresting things to see and do. Granted, there are trillions of trees, millions of lakes, ponds and other water sources, and mile after mile of grated road, making every trek arduous and way too time consuming, and for what. I found most of the residents very nice but insular in a way that made them very uninteresting as well. Prior to going there I read every review of every restaurant (few and far between as they are) and discovered that most reviews were not wrong...I felt certain that people reviewing were just being critical, not so. There is no 'reasonable cuisine' there. I never go to McDonalds at home but the one in Labrador City almost seemed gourmet compared to other places we tried. Fried and over cooked seems to be the order of the day! Be prepared for exorbitant prices...especially what you get for the cost...that applies to food as well as accommodations. Service is also not to a standard that most people would expect especially at those prices. I've tried to refrain from discussing the black flies but my review would not be complete without at least mentioning them. They are horrible! Beyond anything I have ever experienced! Not sure how or why anyone would live in this remote and inhospitable part of the world. BTW, the long tedious stretches of road between towns/places have no rest stops or conveniences...read, no toilets. Nature is your facility, but be quick about it, otherwise you will become lunch for the black flies!

Birch Island Trail

Reviewed By Rick K - Windsor, Canada

There seemed to still be some work to do when I was there but it offers a great walk and view. A little gem in the area. I feel this will be a great place to be when the leafs begin to change.
