Newfoundland and Labrador is a Canadian province on the Atlantic coast in North America’s north eastern part. Newfoundland and Labrador is located on the eastern side of Canada. The Strait of Belle Isle divides this area into two geographical areas, Labrador and island of Newfoundland. The province also consists of more than small islands. A trip to Labrador is not a run-of-the-mill vacation. It's a great adventure. This vast mainland portion of the province stretches north to Cape Chidley on Ungava Bay. Eons of glacial action, erosion, and internal upheaval have carved a land of unsurpassed beauty where aficionados of the great outdoor experience can indulge their passion.

Glacial landform - Glacial landform - Glacial deposition: Debris in the glacial environment may be deposited directly by the ice (till) or, after reworking, by meltwater streams (outwash).
