Location:

VSCNL is located in the St. John’s region of Newfoundland. St. John’s is a port city with the combination of big-city luxury and small-town charm. The oldest and most easterly city in North America, where courteous and lively people will treat you as friends – willing to send you in the right direction, help you on your way, or even take you there. Certainly, this city is like no other.

Spend the day exploring many fine boutiques, cafés, restaurants, pubs, and art galleries lining our streets. In the evening, sit back, relax, and enjoy live music or local theatre where actors will whisk you away to another place and time.

For nightlife excitement, head to the famous George Street. Here, clubs, pubs, bars, and restaurants are stacked and crammed. Every evening, George Street blazes with energy.

Are you the outdoor type? Sea or lake kayak in the late spring, summer, and fall. Winter offers snowboarding, skiing, snowshoeing, and snowmobiling in the mild maritime climate. Year round take a hike exploring coast lines while watching breaching whales along incredible landscapes. A multitude of these opportunities can be minutes from your home doorstep.
