  • Beautiful location, a must to do the boat trip at Western Brook Pond. 30 minute walk along a gravel path to the boat. Washrooms and small restaurant at the end. Boat trip takes 2 hours down the fjord,...  more »

  • Unforgettable views. Great camping choices. Stayed at the rustic cabins. Nice relaxing getaway. There's plenty to see and do. The drive up the penninsula is fantastic.
  • Amazing. The trails are impressively well maintained and the roads are also the same. They have been doing renovations and keeping all the trails, that I hiked, very nice. We went late October hoping to catch the leafs change color, we were not disappointed.
  • I came to climb Gros Morne mountain and dragged my wife up there with me. 7.5 hours for the total hike with plenty of stops to take in the amazing views and some wildlife. Novice hikers be warned to dress for a huge drop in temperature and wear suitable shoes (hiking books are ideal). I suggest getting the steep rocky side out of the way first and loop back down using the staircase. The rocky footing would not make for an easy descent especially with how windy it can get. A great experience overall.
  • Such an amazing place for everyone. Amazing camping facilities and showers were nice and clean. Very clean trails and we'll kept. Staff was very friendly and it was an bewitching experience.
  • Gros Morne National Park in Newfoundland, Canada is one of the most specular places on earth. The geology is so impressive. This is the only place on earth where you can see rock pushed up from the mantle. You can see fossils here that define the boundary between the Cambrian and the Ordovician at Green Point. There are an endless amount of hikes along the Atlantic Ocean and all over the park. There are even overnight hikes you can do. This park is a UNESCO world heritage site so even on overnight trips there are no fires allowed. Western Brook Pond boat ride is a must but book ahead. It fills up quickly. There are two Discovery Centres in the park where you can find all the park information about hikes, camping, boat rides, geology, geography, weather conditions and more. They also have a gift shop in the Discovery center. You can go on hikes with Park Interperters where you can find out about the parks geology, history and even vegetation. The park is open year round. We were there in the fall. It's a great time of year to see the fall foliage which is oranges, reds, yellows and greens.
