Newfoundland is known for its precipitation, mostly in the form of rain, with heavy fog, too. Sunshine is mostly found in the summer months, so while you might get a tan if you try, you're just as likely to rust from that wonderfully varied maritime climate. Did you know that Newfoundland is the world's 16th-largest island, and Canada's 4th-largest? Long inhabited by the Paleo-Eskimo Dorset culture, Europeans first visited Newfoundland in the 11th century when Leif Eriksson landed on its shores, calling it Vinland.
