Tales, Trails and Tunes in a UNESCO World Heritage Site

14 May 2011

If you find yourself near Gros Morne National Park over the next couple of weeks, or if you’re simply in need of some creative inspiration, be sure to check out the Trails, Tales and Tunes Festival, May 14th to 28th. The festival embraces 15 days of some of the best culture and recreation Newfoundland and Labrador has to offer, covering everything from storytelling and live music to trail-hiking and even yoga.

Gros Morne possesses some of the most breathtaking scenery in Newfoundland and Labrador, including a rare visual example of continental drift – exposed, above-ground formations that were once deep ocean crust and rocks from the earth's mantle. Gros Morne is also home to the highest waterfall in eastern North America, as well as a fresh water fjord carved out by glaciers.

The park is a nature-lover’s paradise and if you hike one of the many trails, you may catch a glimpse of the arctic hare, caribou, moose, or possibly whales and sea ducks near the coastlines.

The Trails, Tales and Tunes festival is a great was to experience the many incredible facets of Gros Morne National Park, so bring your friends and family to enjoy this 5th anniversary celebration. For more info and the full spectacular line-up, visit www.trailstalestunes.ca
