  • If you are coming in from the North do your homework before; the visitors centre is 3/4 of the way down and focusses on people entering from the south. There are 2 destinations we didn't know about th...  read more »
  • Even though we couldn't take the boat ride this hike is worth every step! Pictures and words cannot describe how amazing this place is. You cannot miss West Brook Pond. Go even if you can only hike. I...  read more »

  • Gros Morne National Park is rustic, vast and just beautiful ~ a great outdoor playground for those who enjoy the outdoors (hiking, kayaking, biking, camping). Visit the Tablelands, Gros Morne Mountain and the visitor's center. Have a look at their interpretive program schedule and attend a lecture or guided hike. They also have indoor attractions, such as Lobster Cove lighthouse for those who are perhaps less adventurous.
  • We did a few hikes in the area. Baker Brook Falls was a great hike throug marshes and forest. Easy terrain and some great views. Climbing Berry hill before or after is a must to make this trip worth while.
  • While we were here we hiked and camped at Green Gardens, which was amazing. Did the Western Brook boat tour which was expensive but also great. Hiked and camped at Snug Harbour, which was beautiful (had a moose stroll by to boot), but the trail was extremely rugged (two river crossings, one of which is waist deep, and a very muddy trail). Overall the park was absolutely amazing.
  • A beautiful park and a wonderful tribute to Canada's beauty. We camped at Berry Hill Campground and there were wild strawberries, crunch berries and raspberries throughout the park. The washrooms were upgraded and very clean. One morning at 6 am. the cleaner was in the washrooms sweeping by flashlight because the power was off. That's dedication. No matter what time of the day or night, the washrooms were spotless. Very impressive. Overall it was a very pleasant stay (in spite of the rain)
  • Gros Morne was one of the highlights of our Newfoundland trip. Stunning landscape. The tablelands represent an unique geology and are as beautiful as it gets!
