Hello, I’m glad to greet you, I’m Yael Yancelson and today we fly quickly with the power of imagination and the senses to the island of Newfoundland in Canada to be amazed by its landscapes of cliffs, fjords, and rich fauna.
So breathe, close your eyes if possible and you’re not doing anything else, give me your hand and let yourself be guided, let’s start!
Newfoundland is a large island off the northeast coast of North America, and the most populous part of the Canadian province of Newfoundland and Labrador.
In Latin, “terra nova” literally means “new earth”; in English, it is called Newfoundland (‘new found land’ or ‘newly found land’); It was Giovanni Caboto who in 1497, and at the service of the British crown, named the island Newfoundland. However, he was not its discoverer, because when he arrived on the island it was already populated by indigenous people from the Beothuk tribe. It is believed that this tribe was part of another group of tribes that inhabited since the year 1000 and that they could be the skraelingar of the Viking sagas.
Just off its coast, the famous Titanic Ocean Liner sank on the night of April 14, 1912. It was the first place to receive news of the Titanic’s sinking, serving as the main port for many of the post-tragedy investigations.
In 1949, after a referendum held on the island by the United Kingdom, the territory joined Canada as its tenth province along with the mainland of Labrador.
One of Newfoundland’s most important attractions is the chance to see whales and birds in their natural habitat. The west side of the island, much less populated, offers natural landscapes in the Gros Morne National Park, declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. We are enjoying nature at its best, with paths and trails that run through different parts of the park. There are quaint little towns and places to eat and buy fresh seafood.
This island has one of the most beautiful fjords in the world, the Western Brook Pond fjord, which is located in the Long Range mountains and we can explore it on one of the boats from the tourist terminal.
Remember that Realidad Alternativa is a project that comes from the heart, with the idea of being inclusive and in solidarity with people who live with hearing disabilities, who have taught us that this space can be enjoyed in very different ways and that is why you can review it at the platform of your choice, remember that we already have a Mexican Sign Language interpreter and on our page, you can have accessible navigation and adjust it to your needs by clicking on the disability icon, all this so that you can enjoy each tour to the fullest and also that we will know different causes throughout each episode to help and leave a grain of sand on this wonderful planet.

What if we go now to Bowring Park, located in Waterford Bay which is the oldest park in the city? The entrance is through the Waterford Bridge road, which leads to a duck pond with the statue of Peter Pan. We will see that there are many recreational facilities here such as tennis courts, a swimming pool, and a children’s playground and it has important monuments that talk about the history of the city. It is a beautiful open-air space, full of families and people of all ages, where we will feed the ducks and the most sporty can choose different starting points for hiking.
Now let’s go up the hill where we can see the Cabot Tower, a small wireless telecommunications station where there is a Marconi exhibition and the communications station that worked in the tower. look how interesting, there is a radio frequency post that can be operated by amateur radio visitors during the summer months.
We’re told that Gaterhall’s is an educational cruise that has been informing tourists for 35 years who want to get a closer look at whales or see the area’s signature bird, the puffin. The cruise takes place through the Witless Bay Ecological Reserve, home to these small birds and one of the best places in North America to watch whales.
When temperatures rise, icebergs begin to arrive in the area and it is quite a spectacle to see them arrive and collide with each other, producing rumbles and small waves with the debris that breaks away.
It is interesting to know that there are 3 seasons in which to visit the area:
If we want to see puffins we must travel between May and September. The whale season reaches its peak in June, and we can see them until mid-August. If what we want to see are the large blocks of icebergs, they are more frequent in the months of May and June.
Dotted with spectacular views and lapped by the Atlantic Ocean, Middle Cove Beach is one of the prettiest beaches in the area. It can be visited all year round since in winter an ice wall usually forms along the rock cliffs that make it even more spectacular, and it is highly recommended to visit it at that time of year. The remains of a Viking village. It was therefore the first confirmed Viking settlement to be found outside of Europe, along with those on the island of Greenland.
To finish we go to L’Anse aux Meadows to observe a Viking village with three small working houses and leaving we will be able to try some of the local Beers such as Black Horse, Jockey Club, and Dominion Ale, Craft Beers include an iceberg beer made with water Harvested from icebergs floating on the high seas, we will have to try it and say cheers!!!!
