Located in Central Labrador, the Town of Happy Valley-Goose Bay is a vibrant community with the largest Indigenous population in Newfoundland & Labrador. With a diverse culture of Innu, Inuit, Metis, and Settlers, we are proud of our strong hunting, fishing and trapping heritage. Rich in natural resources and with a strong connection to the environment, we are surrounded by the beauty of the Mealy Mountains National Park Reserve, the Grand (Churchill) River, and Lake Melville.

Happy Valley-Goose Bay is accessible by Air, Sea & Road. However, with over 1100 km of highway, 6,000 km of coastline and 294,300 sq. km of landmass, Labrador is one of the last great wilderness areas on the planet. A trip to Central Labrador is an adventure and travelers should plan accordingly.
