Harbour Breton - Newfoundland and Labrador

Route 360
Coordinates: 47.4671° N, 55.8188° W

Harbour Breton is located on the south coast of Newfoundland, Canada. Twelve miles east of Grand Falls-Windsor or forty-eight miles west of Gander, take the Bay D'Espoir Highway, Route 360, south for 200 kilometers. Your driving experience across the central interior of the province will surely provide you an up-close and personal touch with nature.

You may encounter along your way any number of moose and caribou for which the region is famous. As well, there are many streams and ponds near the highway where a meal of trout can be caught. Some streams are licensed and protected waterways and therefore we advise you to check for posted signs before trying your luck.

If you are a birdwatcher, keep an eye out for the ever popular eagle that sometimes builds it nest in the treetops near the highway. Nearing the coast, the highway takes you over some very high country and then snakes along the tops of fiords offering a scenic, panoramic view of Connaigre Bay. There are many look off areas along the route allowing for safe, convenient places to do some sightseeing. Some hills are extremely steep so please exercise caution while driving in these areas.

Before you have had time to take in the breathtaking scenery and wildlife, you'll be in Harbour Breton - the capital of Newfoundland's south coast.
