This part of the world has been visited by many people, beginning with the Maritime Archaic Peoples 3,500 years ago. Since then, Inuit, Beothucks and European visitors have come and gone. Some have stayed, too.
Jacques Cartier was the first European to arrive here in 1534 on his first voyage to the New World. Since that time, Portuguese, Basques and even Captain James Cook have frequented this area. Today, Corner Brook is a modern, progressive city with a population of approximately 19,000 and is nestled among scenic hills 30 miles from the Gulf of St Lawrence.
Head out to the city's eastern edge to see some highlights -- Marble Mountain, the Heritage Tree and the Old Man in the Mountain.
Before returning to the ship, you'll also drive through Corner Brook to Captain Cook's Monument .
