Gros Morne National Park: The Great Canadian Bucket List

Gros Morne is a wild place, so far removed from it all that it feels almost otherworldly.

The UNESCO World Heritage Site offers geological marvels and dramatic scenery, with a range of walks, hikes, and boat trips. Gros Morne is a wild place, so far removed from it all that it feels almost otherworldly. For the visitor, this translates into exposed earth crust, dramatic fjords, alpine plateaus, waterfalls, crystal lakes and sheer cliffs.

The Western Brook Pond Tour is perhaps the most famous activity in the park, but there’s real magic to discover by just exploring. The unique fishing communities within the park boundaries are worth checking out, as are many of the trails and sights signposted along the coastal drive. Parks Canada have an excellent interpretation centre at Woody Point with enthusiastic guides, well worth paying a visit to get yourself orientated.

If you have the chance to see this amazing place, do it!
