Newfoundland and Labrador form the easternmost province of Canada. On the island of Newfoundland, the Nordic archaeological site L’Anse aux Meadows is the famous Viking explorer Leif Erikson’s settlement. The Gros Morne National Park, in the Gulf of San Lorenzo, has cliffs, waterfalls and glacial fjords. The capital city in the southeast, San Juan, is known for the seventeenth century Citadel Signal Hill, with a footpath on the slopes.

The name "New founde lande" was uttered by King Henry VII in reference to the land explored by the Cabots. In Portuguese it is Terra Nova, which literally means "new land" which is also the French name for the Province's island region (Terre-Neuve). The name "Terra Nova" is in wide use on the island (e.g. Terra Nova National Park). The influence of early Portuguese exploration is also reflected in the name of Labrador, which derives from the surname of the Portuguese navigator João Fernandes Lavrador. Labrador's name in the Inuttitut language (spoken in Nunatsiavut) is Nunatsuak, meaning "the big land" (a common English nickname for Labrador). Newfoundland's Inuttitut name is Ikkarumikluak meaning "place of many shoals".
