We had fallen in love with Newfoundland long before we ever set foot on its soil. And, the abundance of gorgeous hiking trails and unique activities in Gros Morne National Park played a large role in luring us to the island. With its lush mountains, vast ocean, and deep fjords, this is a nature-lover’s paradise. Once you’ve experienced it, you will always feel its pull on your heart.
We thought a week would be plenty of time to enjoy all – or at least most of – the wonders of this vast national park. But we now know we only touched the surface of what makes this UNESCO World Heritage Site so special. It would take months or more to explore it all. But here are our top picks – for fellow travelers who are short on time. Just don’t be surprised if you feel that same desire to come back often (especially if you get “screeched in”).
