Taking its name from the stunning Deer Lake, this Canadian town can be found on the island of Newfoundland. A peaceful spot for visitors looking to explore the province of Newfoundland and Labrador, the town is located in the Humber Valley and only a little way away from the picturesque White Bay. Offering flawless natural beauty and a range of activities, it is little wonder that more and more individuals, couples and families are choosing to holiday in this area of the world. By far the most popular thing to do here is walk – taking in incredible scenery along the way. With a walking trail covering 1.2 miles (1.9km) around the northern shore of Deer Lake, visitors can enjoy peaceful strolls or adventurous cycle rides. Stop off for a rest at the shore’s sandy beaches that provide the perfect picnicking area. In warm weather the lake is of course the prime attraction for those who have packed their swimming costumes. Cool down in the summer heat by going for a paddle or a swim in the clean and fresh waters, or plan ahead and enjoy a day of canoeing, sailing or kayaking with this fantastic scenic backdrop. For those with a penchant for adventure, why not consider getting back to nature and camping by the lake – a fantastic way of making the most of this beautiful area. If you find yourself more at home on the putting green then a trip to the Humber River Golf Course for a game or two should definitely find its way onto your travel itinerary.
Although you might consider Deer Lake for your typical summer holiday between June and September thanks to its sprawling scenery that welcomes everyone from swimmers to cyclists, don’t be deterred from contemplating a trip during the winter season, which lasts December through to March. Its well-kept trails provide opportunities for winter hiking and some areas can be used for ice skating depending on prior safety checks.
With various options for getting around Deer Lake you’re sure to have fun planning your journey here. Why not hire a boat or a canoe to navigate around the lake itself for an interesting take on the sightseeing experience? Or simply lace up your walking boots and discover the beautiful town and its scenery on foot to get the most out of your stay here.
