Port Blandford, Newfoundland & Labrador

Like so many of the towns across Newfoundland, Port Blandford is tucked away off the Trans-Canada Highway but is always worth the stop. The town has under 1000 people and sits 2 hours from St. John's and 20 minutes from Clarenville. There are two exits from the highway that you can take - one goes through the town and the other goes directly toward one of the bridges.

A lot of people will say that Newfoundland only has 2 or 3 seasons but Port Blandford is far enough off the Avalon Peninsula that it does have a true Fall and Spring as well as Summer and Winter. The different types of trees in the area make it a beautiful area as the leaves turn colours.

If you do anything while in the area, make sure it is outside. Take in the beautiful scenery and vast trails around the town and very nearby Terra Nova Provincial Park. We've spent so much time exploring and enjoying the water, trails, parks and wildlife and encourage you to do the same!
A particularly nice time of year is Winter. The sea ice has packed into the cove in an amazing way. Pieces of ice are multiple feet thick and literally fill the cove for over a km. It was quite the sight!
Definitely make this town a pit-stop on your adventures at the very least! Until next time Port Blandford.
