Newfoundland and Labrador is very fortunate to have some of the best big game hunting and sport-fishing outfitters in Canada. Why? Because the province is blessed with an abundance of wild game and streams and lakes that are untouched in comparison to waters in other provinces. The massive land base with a small human population provides ample opportunities for wilderness snowmobiling during the winter months and its the beautiful summer landscape that attracts tourist interested in sight-seeing.

Human History
The human history of Newfoundland and Labrador has been strongly influenced by the natural environment, particularly marine resources and the western portion of the province, the forest industry. Recent years has seen a steady increase in tourism in this province as rural Newfoundland and Labrador endures one of Canada's largest ever population declines. (A term often refered to as "out migration") Tourist that want to enjoy some of the most quiet and leisurely environments in Canada come here to relax. While staying in Newfoundland and Labrador travellers take full advantage of our unparalleled hunting and fishing opportunities. Others enjoy outdoor adventures in our remote, sparsely-populated unspoiled wilderness. Our Newfoundland and Labrador outfitters provide tourist with lodging, travel arrangements, food, licences and amenities.
The Landscape
The landscape of Newfoundland and Labrador has had a remarkable geological history, formed over many millions of years by continental collision, mountain-building, volcanoes, oceans, rivers and ice sheets. The physical environment that has developed as a result is itself an important part of the region's heritage. The Torngat Mountains of northern Labrador contain some of the finest examples of alpine glacial landforms in Canada. Divided into two geographical parts, Labrador and the island of Newfoundland, the province has a small population (551,792 in 1996) spread over a huge land mass (405,720 sq. km.). Slightly more than half of the people make their homes in outport fishing villages strung along the rugged coastline. (There are very few settlements or towns located in interior Newfoundland and Labrador because of limited access to the sea).The remainder live in cities and towns, the largest of which is the provincial capital of St. John's. The economy of the province rests heavily on natural resources, a fact that is reflected in family and community life. The population of Newfoundland and Labrador came mostly from the southwest of England and the south and southeast of Ireland.
