6. The Lighthouses of Newfoundland
The ever-changing waters of the North Atlantic are famous for their tumultuous storms, murky fog and hidden rock formations. Tragic shipwrecks and lost sailors were all too common along Newfoundland and Labrador’s rugged coastline until the first lighthouse appeared on the banks of Fort Amherst in 1813. Since then, the province has seen an array of uniquely painted lighthouses pop up along its shoreline, safely guiding boats away from peril. Many of these historic structures are now open to tourists, so visitors can immerse themselves in the romantic charms of a solitary life by the sea.
