Our communities sit in the lowlands along the coastline, with the Long Range Mountains providing a spectacular backdrop. The coastline presents a kaleidoscope of bays and inlets, islands, jagged headlands, with forested areas inland.

The Great Northern Peninsula includes 69 distinct communities in close proximity to one another. These communities share services such as schools, health care and other public services and are grouped into subregions. These sub-regions are shown on the map at right.

The Northern Peninsula is the largest, distinctive geographical region on the Island of Newfoundland. It stretches 363 kms and covers approximately 17,500 square km. The total population is approximately 16,859.
Road transportation is via Route 430 (Viking Trail), a 415 km highway, which begins at the Trans Canada Highway in Deer Lake and follows the coastline up to St. Anthony at the most northern tip of the peninsula.

Regular air service is available at the Deer Lake Regional Airport at the southern end of the Northern Peninsula and the St. Anthony Airport at the northern end of the Peninsula. In addition, a ferry link to Southern Labrador operates from St. Barbe. With the completion of the Trans Labrador Highway in 2009, the Great Northern Peninsula is now connected to mainland Canada (North America) via a 1.5 hr crossing from St. Barbe, Newfoundland to Labrador.
