Burin - Attractions and Activities

While the Burin Peninsula is relatively small, being about 160 kilometers in length and 40 km wide, it has a lot to offer when it comes to attractions. The first thing a traveler to the peninsula will notice is the astounding beauty of its lush green country side giving way to a rugged coastline that provides some of the most breathtaking scenery on the island.

There are four historial drives along what is know as The Heritage Run. They include Mariner Drive, Captain Cook Drive, Captain Clarke Drive and French Island Run. Each offers visitors a unique experience to explore this beautiful part of Newfoundland.




The Heritage Run

With a wide expanse of horizon, there are plenty of opportunities to view the many small bays, sheltered coves, and blue water inlets, which are a trademark of this part of the island. Many a photographer has spent their days wandering from area to area snapping up our beautiful landscapes, which offer vistas that rival anywhere in North America.

The Winterland EcoMuseum is an attraction on the Burin Peninsula, which allows people to take a walking tour that showcases the kinds of plant and animal life on the peninsula.
