Moose populations on Newfoundland have reached over 100,000 – it is time for your expedition in search of your very own! As you drive, keep your camera handy – moose and caribou are both common along this remote route. An evening outing to a favourite moose hangout is the ideal way to end a day. Your guide knows some of these moose personally, so your chances of spotting one are great!
Overnight at the northern tip of Newfoundland where Quirpon Lighthouse Inn will draw you into the life of an isolated lightkeeper. The humpbacks put on the spectacular tail show, but orcas bumping the boat will definitely raise your pulse!
Wind your way through Gros Morne National Park. This UNESCO World Heritage Site is spectacular, and the beauty of this coastal drive, as you watch for moose and caribou on one side and whales on the other, is a treat.
Time for one of the icons of Gros Morne National Park. A 45 minute walk across a bog (known locally as a “mish”) brings you to the dock of the Western Brook Pond Boat Tour. This journey takes you into a deceptively innocuous notch in the granite face that opens into a landlocked fjord, surrounded by 2000 foot cliffs. Penetrate miles into the fjord, with hanging valleys.
One of the most amazing struggles in nature are Atlantic salmon fighting upstream to spawn. Sir Richard Squires Provincial Park allows you to view this, from, literally, a foot away.
Elliston is a fabulous spot for viewing puffins from land, After getting that perfect photo, head for Bonavista to explore this historic town. The Mockbeggar Plantation is a must for understanding the life of this coast in the past, as is the sealer’s museum.
Arrive in St. John’s. You may want to wander downtown in the evening. No other city offers such a strolling-friendly waterfront where you can still see evidence of the centuries of shipping.
This is a place where untouched nature and vibrant cultures blend to create perfect memories. Icebergs, whales and birds await you in Newfoundland, while polar bears patrol the rugged landscape of Labrador.Learn More
