Welcome To Corner Brook in Newfoundland & Labrador

Welcome To

Corner Brook

Where new adventures are around every corner.

Nestled at the mouth of the Humber River and framed by towering Blomidon and Long Range mountains, city convenience meets small-town hospitality at the port of Corner Brook.

Experiencing the beauty of this micro-city begins long before you reach the port: cruising in through the Bay of Islands is its own sight to behold, with lush forests and traditional fishing communities scattered across either shore.

As the central hub for the west coast of Newfoundland & Labrador, Corner Brook embraces its natural beauty to the fullest. You’ll find plenty of walking trails, lookouts, parks, and historic sites scattered throughout the city, with picturesque views at every turn.

The locals here are confidently on team “west coast, best coast”: Corner Brook’s cross-section of urban and nature is unlike anywhere else and is sure to inspire all who visit, no matter their interests.

Explore the leisurely Corner Brook Stream Trail Network that winds throughout the city. Unwind at one of the many local bars and restaurants that colour the historic downtown core. Take the family on a day trip to the Historic Train Site and climb aboard some of the province’s most famous locomotives. Retrace the footsteps of Captain Cook to the National Historic Site and take in panoramic views of the Bay of Islands that are straight out of a painting.

There’s so much to do in Corner Brook, you might just have to come back and visit again.
