The town of Deer Lake is on the island of Newfoundland, in the western part and right where the Trans-Canada Highway and the Viking Trail meet. It's ideally located for visiting the beautiful Northern Peninsula and Labrador plus provides a stepping stone to eastern and western Newfoundland. It's also known as the snowmobile hub of Newfoundland and has a rich heritage.
In summer you can hike among beautiful trails, sunbathe and walk on the sandy beach, bird watch and enjoy the Humber River. The region is considered very favorable for diverse plant and wildlife and you can discover all there is to see on various nature trails.
Snowmobiling is a huge attraction in the winter months as is sliding, ice fishing and skating. There are a network of trails to explore where you will enjoy deep powdery snow and unspoiled landscapes.
Summers here are short and relatively dry, August is the hottest month for having fun at the beach, but if its snow you're after and the snowmobiling experience, visit in February.
