Nain Vacation Packages
When you visit Nain, talk to the local Inuit population to discover an enthralling history. Fish in the icy waters and explore sublime and rugged surroundings.
Nain was founded in 1771 by Moravian Missionaries and several of the settlement’s original buildings remain to this day. Perhaps the most fascinating of these is the elegant Nain Church. This simple, white building has survived hundreds of years of harsh storms.
Wander from here to the waterfront, often the liveliest place in a town of just over 1,000 permanent residents. Catch bass and Arctic char from the jetty or relax and watch the boats that trawl for mussels, clams and scallops. During the colder months the entire bay freezes over leaving the local children to search for cracks in the ice where they can cast their lines.
After a morning by the water get your hiking boots on and walk up nearby Mount Sophie. Only tufts of grass and shrubs manage to grow on this huge rock that rises hundreds of feet above the village. Reach the top and catch your breath in the cool breeze while you gaze towards Hillsbury and Paul Island to the east.
With the sun quickly sinking into the ocean, make your way back to ground level and check out the main restaurant in town. Dine on fantastic fresh seafood most likely caught right outside.
Nain is the most northern community of Nunatsiavut in Newfoundland and Labrador. The town has its own airstrip with the provincial capital of St. John’s a 2-hour flight south. There is just one hotel in Nain with private accommodation also available.
Immerse yourself in the remote community of Nain and marvel at its beauty and heritage.
