The Tablelands, Gros Morne National Park

4.6
#3 of 14 in Nature in Newfoundland
Walk along the Earth's mantle at World Heritage Site The Tablelands, a rare opportunity experienced by few. Forged when the tectonic plates of Africa and North America collided, this breathtaking scenery is a dramatic composition of deep ocean crust, rocks from the Earth's mantle, and eroded remnants of a 1.2 billion year old mountain range. Hike along golden rocky plains, absorbing this dynamic terrain and spectacular views from various lookouts. Various trails allow walkers of all abilities to encounter the site, and daily guides from the national park provide a wealth of geological information.
