A poll of 1,000 Canadians has named Deer Lake as one of 19 best places in the world to visit in 2019. Expedia is one of the top travel influencers in the world. The section on Deer Lake highlights snowmobiling, the Deer Lake Strawberry Festival and the Newfoundland Insectarium. The Deer Lake text is below:


Judging by the sports fiends in our poll, this is the year to ditch your introvert cave and go see the open outdoors. We think whizzing through the landscape on a snowmobile is perfect, and there’s a certain city to help you out: Deer Lake. Known as the snowmobile hub of Newfoundland, this is one of the best places to travel to when learning the sport.


Things to do in 2019

  • Never gone snowmobiling before? Not to worry! Make 2019 a year of new beginnings. Deer Lake has plenty of rentals, off-loading sites, and gas stations, so you can go, go, go.
  • Foodies unite! Summer means strawberry season. Head to the Deer Lake Strawberry Festival during the third weekend of July to enjoy freshly picked berries from the Humber Valley.
  • Looking to plan a family holiday in 2019? Stop into Newfoundland Insectarium, where the kiddos can learn more about butterflies, ants, and honeybees.
