Residents of Twillingate, Newfoundland say that meeting with giants is just the tip of the iceberg in their town.

Giants appearing as massive icebergs after the spring melt are closely followed by giants of the mammal kind – as many as 22 different species of whales have been spotted in Newfoundland’s waters.

Twillingate’s population swells when these giants are in the area and visitors would be advised to make reservations well in advance. RV travellers are welcomed at Twillingate’s convenient RV parks both private and provincial. Getting there is just part of the adventure. The ‘island hopping’ route from Gander traverses numerous islands before finally arriving at Twillingate 112km to the north-west.

Unique island culture, coupled with hospitality second to none leaves those who visit with a thirst to return.
