Getting to the island of Newfoundland

    The town of Channel-Port aux Basques in southwestern Newfoundland is the gateway port to the island of Newfoundland. If you are travelling to Newfoundland by road, then the quickest and easiest way is to take the Marine Atlantic ferry from North Sydney, Nova Scotia to Channel-Port aux Basques, Newfoundland.  The ferry generally completes a crossing in about 6 - 7 hours (5 hours in the summer) and when you arrive in Port aux Basques you are at the western end of the Newfoundland section of the Trans-Canada Highway. Corner Brook is just a 2 and a half hour drive north of Port aux Basques, while Newfoundland's capital, St. John's, is an 11 or 12 hour trip.

    If you are planning to arrive to Newfoundland by air then there are 4 airports connecting Newfoundland to the rest of the world. St. John's International Airport and Deer Lake Regional Airport are the 2 busiest airports in Newfoundland while Stephenville International Airport and Gander International Airport provide additional air links to the island.
