How to Get To Labrador by Road

Road Travel
There are two options by which road travellers may reach Labrador. One of these options provide entry to coastal Labrador via ferry service from the Island of Newfoundland. The second option provides road access to Labrador West through the neighbouring Province of Quebec.
Option 1: From Newfoundland via the MV Apollo

Newfoundland and Labrador are separated by a body of water called the Strait of Belle Isle. A ferry service operates across this strait from St. Barbe, Newfoundland to Blanc Sablon, Quebec. Blanc Sablon is located just a few minutes drive from Quebec-Labrador border. This auto/passenger ferry service is operated by the Government of Newfoundland and Labrador.

Accordingly, road travellers may:

  1. Drive the paved highway in northern Newfoundland (the Viking Trail) to St. Barbe;
  2. Embark on the MV Apollo for the 90-minute crossing of the Strait of Belle Isle;
  3. Disembark at Blanc Sablon and follow Route 510 through the Labrador Coastal Drive region to Happy Valley-Goose Bay. From Happy Valley-Goose Bay follow route 500 west to Labrador City. From Labrador City a road connection is available to continental North America.
Option 2: From Quebec by Road to Labrador City

Labrador City is linked by 581 km of road (Route 138) to Baie Comeau, Quebec. Approximately one-half of this distance is paved, while the remainder is gravel. Baie Comeau is connected by paved road to major centres.

Road travellers arriving at Labrador City by road may then:

  1. Follow Route 500 east to Happy Valley-Goose Bay.
  2. Follow Route 510 south through the Labrador Coastal Drive region.
Here are some website links to help in planning your road travel:

Vancouver’s New Sightseeing Gondola to open in 2014.

NEW SIGHTSEEING GONDOLA TO OPEN IN SPRING 2014

Squamish

The Squamish Sea to Sky aerial-gondola tram is slated to open in spring 2014. Situated a 40-minute drive from Vancouver – halfway to Whistler – the $22-million facility will take guests on an eight-minute journey 2,800 feet above Howe Sound. The fully-enclosed gondola cabins will hold up to eight passengers at a time, travelling along a 5.83-acre strip of land situated between Stawamus Chief Provincial Park and Shannon Falls. The visitor experience will continue at the top of the mountain with viewing platforms, a suspension bridge and hiking trails, as well as a brand-new lodge complete with a restaurant, cultural exhibits and event space. The new gondola is expected to attract approximately 300,000 visitors per year.

Celebration of Light Fireworks Festival
July 28, August 1 and August 4 (shows start at 10 pm)
The largest off-shore fireworks competition in the world, Vancouver’s Celebration of Light, returns this summer to light up the sky over English Bay and the city’s downtown core. The amazing pyrotechnic show is choreographed to music and showcased free to the public, drawing crowds of more than 1.5 million people annually to the city’s beaches, waterfront parks and restaurants. And this year, you don’t have to worry about battling the crowds at English Bay: festival-goers can purchase tickets for a reserved seating section located next to the English Bay Bathhouse on Beach Avenue. A limited number of early bird tickets are on sale now for $49 (plus HST), and can be purchased at the Tickets Tonight booth in Tourism Vancouver’s Visitor Centre.
