    This park was spectacular one of our favorite national parks. When you book with Bon tours for the Western Brooke pond which is highly recommended you get one day towards park entry just show that to the person at the gate The drive was so beautiful through it stopping at many lovely places and we loved driving through the tablelands. We especially loved Bonne Bay liked this better than Norris, Norris point, Needles harbor, Trout River, Rocky harbor and Lobster cove. We took the scenic route 430 and 431 there is a great large store at deer creek like a huge grocery i would recommend loading up on stuff there for variety otherwise variety is lacking in the smaller grocery. The Jenniex house and Dr Henry Payne center was closed off season as were other things but no problem tons of scenery to capture your attention. We drove as far as Shallow bay but was very disappointed in the described most beautiful beaches in Canada it was completely covered with brown foul smelling seaweed. Maybe just that time of year but worth checking if that changes with season

    Wow, wow, wow! We were lucky to be there on a sunny day and the tour was amazing. Very informative. Top tip, arrive as early as you can so you can get a seat upstairs at the front. You can stand to take photos so don’t get hemmed in to your seat.

    My husband and I and a friend couple had an amazing time at Gros Morne. We hiked in the Tableland, took the boat trip on Western Brook Pond and enjoyed a number of other hikes. What a gorgeous place. We had only two days of our Newfoundland trip but could have spent much more time here. The boat tour was magical and so worth the 30-45 minute walk to get to the launch. Newfoundlanders are friendly and helpful and we had a great trip.

    The Marine Station Aquarium is a hidden gem. There is a very reasonably-priced family rate and a free guided tour that goes every 30 minutes (it seems). We took the guided tour and it was EXCELLENT - one of the best museum experiences I've ever had! Our guide was exceptional and treated the kids like VIPs. She answered EVERY question that we asked and made everything very easy to understand. She also fed the wolffish a crab so the kids could watch it eat. Our 30 minute tour probably went 45 minutes and ended at the touch tank where the kids could hold starfish and anemones. Travelling with kids, it was a highlight of our trip to Western Newfoundland!

    We are both 50yrs old and in ok shape. All the reviews are correct in saying that this is not easy. But it is achievable. Just be prepared. We each carried 3L of water and had just enough. It was suppose to be sunny all day but in the mountains you never know and it did rain. We took our time and stopped ALOT especially going up the gully which that part alone took us 2 hours to get to the top. The views are incredible and totally worth it. I enjoyed the way down even more but just be prepared that it takes a long time to get back down to the base and then you still have another 4kms. Total time took us older folks 8 hours. Once in a lifetime.

    This was undoubtedly my favourite hike during my family's trip in Gros Morne. After about 45 minutes of challenging, sweaty, rocky, uphill climbing, we were rewarded with spectacular views and refreshing winds. When we neared the top, we admired fields filled with thousands of fascinating pitcher plants. The whole partial-loop trail took us under two hours, and we got the hard, uphill part over with first; the second half of the trail is all downhill. Just a heads-up: the first lookout indicated on the trail map is unmarked, but we stopped several times anyway for breathtaking views on our way up!

    Next time we’ll take the tour. This spot is so intriguing and fascinating I wanted to know more and have my questions answered.

    The millions of layers of rock thrust up from the ground are wonderous and leave your imagination running wild.

    Don’t miss this.

    Gorgeous! Lovely sandy beach, warm water (well warm enough to swim), clean facility for outdoor shower, gorgeous view, absolutely perfect. Cost $10 for day pass but well worth it.

    Recently refurbed path, downhill out and back, 9km return with c.400m elevation gain. Rewarded with beautiful coastal views and rugged green hills (and a few sheep!) Toilet at trailhead and at campsite.

    10km round trip but mostly easy walking and well worth it - the falls are wonderful. It's only the last part that has some muddy patches and steps down to the falls, the rest is level. Wide variety of landscapes and a fascinating moose-exclusion-zone that shows you the huge impact moose have on the environment. Didn't see any, though!

    Went for a quick hike on burnt hill, it has three great lookouts and you can cover it all in under an hour. If you happen to be in Norris Point you should check it out. The signage is very good and trail is well kept.

    Fascinating geological landmark, it’s probably best to go with a guide as they can explain the significance of these rocks and their formations. This site is 500M years old, geologists have discovered that these fossils define the boundary between the Cambrian and Ordovician periods, which pre dates the Jurassic period. Definitely worth a visit!

    Walking the beach looking for glassies (local term for bits of smoothed glass washed up). Local breakfast at the Blue Whale diner good. Local Seaside restaurant great for a wonderful fish dinner. Tip: get reservations to the restaurant.

    We opted to stay in the trout river campground so we could have easy access to the trout river pond which is quite spectacular if you walk the trail and get out on the water. HOWEVER do NOT expect to take the advertised/prompted tour that you see on the official pages for Canada parks. This tour does not exist anymore. Instead you if you do not read the link you click on for wild Gros Morne tours you get a tour of Bonne Bay. Not what we had in mind exactly. If you decide to do the 14km out and back walk it is rugged and not very well travelled. Be prepared lots of poison ivy and mosquitos.
