Magnificent views, adventurous hikes, full of fun information in geology, this park is amongst the very top park of Canada. Every section is so unique in landscape and their geological traits. Be sure to plan enough time for exploration when visiting NL. I would say that you can easily spend 4-8 days in this park along.
Western Brook Pond boat tours was fantastic. Sunny day, view from the front of the boat and just perfect weather during our time here. The walk-in to the boat tour is quite long, so eat your Cinnabon from Robin's coffee first! The views were incredible to see. Another place you need to visit when on The Rock.
A beautiful place for beautiful hikes. Do it if you're in doubt. Here's a poem inspired by the hike. Enjoy! Into the woods Through the meadow Under fallen trees Footprints indent the soft earth Whatever the reason, leave your burden In the stillness, brooks sounding, beckoning Flies buzzing, deterring Signs of forest life Time glide like a gentle breeze Moss serve as cushions Boulder provides shelter Flowers sway in the wind Berries dapple the scene Sun rays brighten the way One step after another Each step brings you closer Leaves crackles under the weight But if you look back too soon, you won't see how far you have come Over the rocks Through the crevice Beneath the waterfall Up the slope Those who rest too long might forget their will But travelers who have gone serve as guides Climb the heights to see beyond A moment, where past and future melt into one. Travelers leave their mark But left with imprint on their mind Until rain and time, care not to sweep away the traces that were made.
One of the best national parks in the east. Can be challenging to get to but offers some amazing hikes, water activities and camping opportunities. Recommend the gros morne mountain, Western pond , tablelands and green garden hikes. Western pond can be confusing if you research online - Option 1: flat 3km hike to the pond. Option 2: 3 km hike + $65 ferry ride around the fjords Option 3: 3km hike + speed boat ride to the fjords + 17km all day strenuous hike. Option 3 is offered by bontour and they charge $320. Recommend 4-5 days to visit the park
Worth the drive and effort. Sights are spectacular. Western Brook Pond tour is great. There is a 2.5km walk from parking lot to the boat. Parking lot has washroom facilities. When you get to the boat, there are more substantial facilities, including more restrooms and a small cafe. Boat tour is 2 hours.
