Officially opened by Queen Elizabeth II in 1997, the Labrador Interpretation Centre is the provincial museum, which holds some of Labrador's finest works of art. It's in North West River, via Rte 520.
If big holes and trucks the size of apartment buildings make your heart flutter, you can tour the mines; call to make reservations.
From Wabush, 39km east on Rte 500 is Grande Hermine Park, which has a beach and some fine scenery. The Menihek hiking trail (15km) goes through wooded areas with waterfalls and open tundra. Outfitters can take anglers to excellent fishing waters.
