西部地区是纽芬兰岛的一大块狭长地带,从西南角的钱纳尔-巴斯克港(Channel-Port aux Basques)起延伸750公里到大北半岛顶部,维京人遗址兰塞奥兹牧草地(L'Anse aux Meadows )。坐拥古老的山峰,峡湾,冰山,鲸鱼,几千英里的海岸线,还有两处联合国教科文组织世界遗产,这片岩石密布的荒凉之地呈现出充足的呼吸空间以及丰富多样的自然遗产。这儿还是国际阿帕拉契步道的所在地。阿帕拉契步道从缅因州的卡塔丁山( Mount Katahdin)到加拿大东部,在延伸到欧洲前贯穿整个纽芬兰西部地区。
  这儿的土地有着独特的地质史,可以追溯到12.5亿年以前,更不用说人类的历史了,即使跨越才4500多年,至今也仍然处在被探究及发现的过程中。联合国教科文组织世界遗产格罗斯莫讷国家公园面积1805平方公里,包括高耸的长岭山脉( Long Range Mountains)还有长桌山(Tablelands Mountain)。公园里有100多公里的徒步步道,其中有许多都穿过迷人的岩层,由于构造剧变,这些岩层都直接从地核隆起。
  在兰塞奥兹牧草地(L'Anse aux Meadows ),碰巧发现欧洲人在北美的第一处居住地---维京村落,这是另外一处联合国教科文组织世界遗产。特色的草皮房屋群展示了一千多年前北欧到访者的生活。
  一路向南,您将来到位于西海岸的科纳布鲁克城(Corner Brook)。作为各类活动的大中心,该城距世界级滑雪胜地大理石山(Marble Mountain)滑雪场仅5分钟车程。在大理石山,竖直高度差达1700英尺,年均自然降雪量达16英尺。冬天,您不但可以尽情滑雪、畅玩滑雪板,还能在1250公里的滑道上尽享雪地摩托的畅快淋漓。
  在这北美远东荒凉的西部,有很多美得让您窒息的风景。这里重峦叠嶂,还有众多自然保护区,比如在科德罗伊谷国际湿地( Codroy Valley International Wetlands),您可以领略到驼鹿、驯鹿和候鸟等野生动物的风采。在这片西部地区,您可以乘船旅行,划皮艇、徒步旅行,还能游览世外桃源般的沙滩。这里亦有多彩的文化,所以,一定要抽时间去体验体验当地的高端剧院,一路行走一路感受当地的音乐与艺术!
  The western region is a great sliver of land on Newfoundland's island, stretching 750 kilometres from Channel-Port aux Basques on the southwest corner, to the Viking site of L'Anse aux Meadows at the tip of the Great Northern Peninsula. With ancient mountains, fjords, icebergs , whales thousands of miles of coastline and two UNESCO World Heritage Sites, this wild and rugged region sports abundant breathing room and diverse natural heritage. It's also home to the International Appalachian Trail, which extends from Mount Katahdin, Maine, through Eastern Canada and stretches fully across the western region of Newfoundland Labrador, before extending into Europe.
  The land found here has a unique geological history dating back 1.25 billion years, not to mention a human history spanning 4,500 years, which is still being researched and discovered today. You'll findGros Morne National Park here, a UNESCO World Heritage Site stretching across 1,805 square kilometres, encompassing the towering Long Range Mountains and the unique Tablelands. The park offers more than 100 kilometres of hiking trails, many passing through fascinating rock formations thrown up from the earth's core due to tectonic upheaval.
  Stumble across the first European settlement of the new world at L'Anse aux Meadows. This Viking village, yet another UNESCO World Heritage Site, features a reconstructed complex of sod huts that offers a glimpse into the life of Nordic visitors a thousand years ago.
  A journey heading south will take you to the City of Corner Brook on the west coast, a sizeable hub of activity just five minutes away from the world-class ski resort, Marble Mountain. At Marble, you'll find yourself standing at the base of a 1,700-foot vertical drop that receives an average 16 feet of annual, natural snowfall. As well as offering skiing and snowboarding, there are 1,250 km of trails for snowmobiling in the winter.
  Here in the wild west of the far east of North America, you'll find scenery to take your breath away. It's a place of mountains, a place of conservation areas like the Codroy Valley International Wetlands, where you can watch wildlife like moose, caribou and migratory birds. It's a place where you can plan boat trips, go kayaking, hiking and even visit secluded sandy beaches. It's also full of culture, so be sure to make time for some high–level theatre, music and art along the way.
