Such a wonderful place to visit. Very easy hike through open vistas which unique rock formations. Travelling in late September meant very few people there.

What a gorgeous, unique corner of the world. One of the few places in the world where the earth’s mantle is on the surface. Well worth the visit. The walk into the lookout is not strenuous at all. Children can do it. The walk up...More

We were fortunate enough to participate in Park’s Canada free guided tour of this site. Tablelands is another perfect geological example of all the amazingness that Newfoundland has to offer and one of four UNESCO sites. The guided tour is highly recommended to provide context...More

Tablelands is a must if you have any interest at all in geology - or simply are interested in the earth's history. We were lucky enough to have Cedrick as a Parks Canada guide - generously offering tons of information on the site and answering...More

This is definitely a "must do" hike. You can do the short hike (6km return). You can also get a map at the discovery centre and venture further on our own or take the guided off path hike. I wish we had done that and...More

If you travel in September, you don't need to reserve campsites. After Labour Day the visitor traffic drops dramatically. For our 3 week trip, I would guess vacancy is about 80%. The ferries aren't as busy either, you could... More
