  • 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 »

  • A wonderful place to visit! Note that the park is far more spread out that you might expect- plan your visit to cluster nearby highlights together. If visiting Green Point, plan to attend a ranger-guided walk. There is no signage or markers for the areas of geological importance, so the interpretation is critical to understanding how truly amazing the place is.
  • I've seen spectacular sights all over the world, but Gros Morne National Park is one of my favorite places on the planet. The scenery here is simply stunning. I've been here a few times, and the sights still take my breath away. Amenities include nice, well equipped campsites, helpful, knowledgeable staff, informative visitor centers and hiking trails appropriate for people of every level of physical fitness. To get the most out of your visit, I recommend taking part in as many guided hikes as you can -- Parks Canada guides offer a wealth of knowledge, and can often get you to spots that you might not have thought of going to on your own. There are a couple of guided Tablelands hikes that are especially interesting. The hike up Gros Morne mountain offers particularly spectacular views, if you're up for a challenging day hike on rugged terrain. If you want something a little more down to earth, the Western Brook Pond trail is very flat and easy to walk on, and it offers amazing views of a land-locked fjord unique to this park. While you're there, the boat tour of Western Brook pond is well worth the price. A must for any Canadian nature-lover's bucket list.
  • Beautiful park. Very well kept. Definitely make sure you have proper hiking shoes for hiking the mountain. Doesn't take full 8 hours if you keep a steady pace!
  • Scenery and landscape is spectacular! Such a large area to cover, we saw only a small percentage of the park. We will have to come again. People were friendly and the towns were picturesque.
  • left me speechless. Awe inspiring. Drew my thoughts to God and how only He could have created all this vast wilderness and beauty. Breathtaking. Quiet. Humbling. Hard to take it all in. Nature in all its power, complexity, diversity, and mystery and beauty. DO NOT MISS.
