Right in the heart of Newfoundland, the Central region contains some of the best outdoor experiences to be found in the province.
As you cross the island portion of Newfoundland and Labrador, you will encounter a stretch of highway that passes through a breathtaking stand of tall birch trees, followed by a stone fence, proclaiming “Welcome to Scenic Green Bay.” And those sights are just a little bit off the beaten path, along Route 390 where you’ll find two small towns that offer visitor experiences on a grand scale: Springdale and King’s Point.
Your perfect home base while exploring the heart of Central Newfoundland, Indian Falls Chalets is situated right at the entrance to beautiful Springdale.
Discover what Central has to offer visitors, from hunting and sport fishing, hiking, whale and iceberg watching, sea kayaking, and so much more!
Take in some of our favourite activities and points of interest – there’s so much to see and do!
