Getting around is this province of Canada can be a bit of a problem as the area is very laid back with times and schedules changing almost without reason. There is one trans-island route and a public bus system that consists of a series of small, regional services that connects between the major points such as St John's, Corner Brook, Gander, etc. Although the system is quite small it works fairly well.
National festival and holidays
Whale and iceberg watching are the two of the main tourist attractions in the province with the iceberg season stating in April through to June and the Whale season following. Sometime between April and June the province celebrates St George's Day and also during the summer months many Celtic-style folk festivals are held.
