Imagine traveling to a location where you will feel as if you have taken a giant step back in time and escaped the rushed lifestyle of today's world. This is exactly what you awaits on Bell Island, an island of 34 square kilometers with an estimated 2500 residents. Bell Island is accessible through a 15 minute ferry ride from Portugal Cove, St. John's, Newfoundland and a great place to include in your Newfoundland travel itinerary. #bellisland #newfoundland #explorenl #touri
While visiting Petty Harbour, be sure to check out the Mini Aquarium. The aquarium has knowledgeable staff on hand to answer any questions you may have about the diverse collection of aquatic life. #pettyharbour #miniaquarium #oceanlife #coral The mini aquarium operates on a catch and release policy. During the fishing season, fishermen provide the aquarium with creatures which, at the end of the season, are returned to the sea. #coral #seacoral #tourismnl #aquaticlife Aquari
Have you ever taken a detour from everyday life to travel 650 feet below the earth's surface? If not, well, why not? The Bell Island No. 2 mine, crafted through many long hours of manually digging and blasting for iron ore, allows you to do just that!

It closed in 1949 and reopened in its original state for tourism several years later. #bellisland #bellislandminetour

For those looking for unique experiences during their Newfoundland travel, why not consider a concert boat cruise? I have taken a 2 hour cruise with Iceberg Quest (located at St. John's harbourfront) and it is something that I highly recommend. #newfoundland #boattour #icebergquest #tourismnl #explorenl Make your Newfoundland travel experience a trip to remember as you tap your feet and feel the wind sweep your face.
