Kayaking in Gros Morne National Park

The world can’t weigh you down when you’re standing on top of it.

It took Mother Nature 485,000,000 years to mold Gros Morne National Park into the geological and visual wonder we know today. The second largest National Park in eastern Canada, Gros Morne National Park is a UNESCO World Heritage Site stretching across 1,805 square kilometres of western Newfoundland as part of the towering Long Range Mountains.

Encompassing tiny seaside communities, forests, bogs, barren lowlands, and striking shorelines, the park comes with ample breathing room and some amazing views.

Tablelands

The area is also world-renowned for its complex geology. It was here that geologists proved the theory of plate tectonics. The Tablelands, a mountain of flat-topped rock of a kind usually found only deep in the earth’s mantle, is an awe-inspiring sight. And though the chemical composition of the rocks on this eerie moon-like landscape may be too harsh for most plants, it’s great for hiking.

In fact, Gros Morne National Park’s spectacular beauty provides the perfect backdrop for all kinds of outdoor adventures.

Explore the park’s dense forests for rare plant and animal species or run your hands over ancient sea floor and preserved ocean avalanches, exposed to the land by the collision of the earth’s tectonic plates nearly 500,000,000 years ago.

Stroll along the trail to Western Brook Pond, over marshland draped in butterworts, great sundew, orchids, dragon’s mouth, and pitcher plants. At the end of your walk, hop aboard a boat tour and sail close enough to towering waterfalls to feel the spray on your face.

Discover both marked and unmarked hiking trails that wind themselves throughout the landscape. Step into perfect circles of rocks that lie on the ground, positioned by natural factors. Stop for a snack on the Arctic Tundra and see how many of the 239 bird species that inhabit this area you can spot.

Relax at the sandy beach of Shallow Bay that stretches out for kilometres. Enjoy the warm summer days by camping along the shores of the ocean, ponds, lakes, or rivers in the area.

During the winter, try your hand at Nordic skiing and snowshoeing throughout the park. Visit the communities in and around Gros Morne and enjoy the hospitality at restaurants, shops, festivals and events year round.
