National Geographic Map of Eastern Newfoundland
Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society has partnered with the National Geographic Society to capture the history and heritage of Eastern Newfoundland through an National Geographic Maps Division map design.
The Eastern Newfoundland Geotourism Project seeks to celebrate the Eastern Newfoundland region as a world-class tourist destination, while contributing to the economic health of the region by promoting sustainable tourism. History buffs and adventurers, backpackers and foodies, birders and sightseers can discover unique destinations based on recommendations from those who know best—residents of the Eastern Newfoundland region.
Eastern Newfoundland residents and visitors, community organizations, tourism stakeholders and local businesses nominate sites for inclusion in a print MapGuide. Unlike any other mapping project, a favorite local restaurant, farm, winery, hiking or biking trail, swimming hole, museum or artist gallery are samples of the type of nominations National Geographic and its project partners solicited. The map targets a variety of growing travel niches—adventure and nature tourism, cultural heritage, travel, and hospitality—and allow for residents to select the one-of-a-kind places integral to a distinctive character of place.
