Set against a backdrop of natural wonder, there's something about Newfoundland and Labrador that nurtures your mind, body, and soul. Here you’ll find 29,000 km of pristine coastline, dotted with beaches, sea stacks, and more than 200 hiking and walking trails, including historic footpaths between abandoned fishing communities. Along the way, witness millions of seabirds, thousands of whales, and hundreds of freshly carved icebergs. And keep an eye out for moose and boreal songbirds as you connect with the unspoiled wilderness and nature, and with the people who've walked these trails for centuries.

Hiking in the National Parks

Terra Nova National Park is home to more than 50 kilometres of trails. Ranging from half-hour strolls to multi-day hikes, the park offers something for every level of interest and ability. Try the Coastal Trail between the Visitor Centre and the main campground at Newman Sound.

Gros Morne National Park in western Newfoundland features more than 100 kilometres of trails. There are easy strolls along coastal lowlands, tough climbs like the James Callaghan Trail up the 806-metre Gros Morne Mountain, and multi-day backcountry treks including the Long Range Traverse.

Torngat Mountains National Park in northern Labrador offers extreme beauty and adventure in a wild, remote setting. Stay at the Base Camp and Research Station to experience unmatched spiritual and cultural encounters. Trek along ancient tracks in a subarctic wilderness that have been walked along for thousands of years.

The Long Walks

The East Coast Trail, along the scenic shore of the Avalon Peninsula, offers 275 kilometres of salt-scoured seaside trails through 30 coastal communities, many settled by the Irish in the 18th century. From Cape St. Francis through St. John’s to Capphayden, there are more than 20 paths, each with its own topography, history, and surprise.

Though the International Appalachian Trail along Newfoundland’s west coast is still a work in progress, lengthy stretches of wild country are already opened to long-distance hikers, and more trails are being added every year.

The Labrador Pioneer Footpath combines a series of traditional coastal paths between L’Anse-au-Clair and Pinware into a multi-day adventure with overnight accommodations along the rugged coast.

Walking Festivals

Going for a brisk walk over spectacular terrain is a great way to work up an appetite. Combine that with a bit of music and some friendly people and you’ve got Trails, Tales and Tunes, our premiere walking festival held every spring in Gros Morne National Park. Codroy Valley puts its best food forward with the Feather and Folk Nature Festival. At the Roots, Rants and Roars festival in Elliston, take a 5-kilometre looped food hike where chefs prepare scrumptious munchies along the way. And celebrate International Trails Day with a hike on the East Coast Trail.

Themed Hikes & Walks

Coastal Trails

Coastal Trails

Long before cars, if you wanted to go to the next community along the coast you walked or sailed. That’s why we have hundreds of kilometres of coastal trails. From short strolls to multi-day expeditions, you’ll find plenty to choose from.

Town & City Treks

Town & City Treks

Many towns around the province maintain short to medium length trails. While some, like the Grand Concourse in St. John’s, offer a vast network of integrated walking trails, others are much more modest. Ask a local where the trails are wherever you go and maybe they’ll join you on a stroll.

Bear

Backcountry Hikes

Both Gros Morne and Terra Nova National Park have backcountry trails that take two or three days to hike. The International Appalachian Trail in western Newfoundland is pure backcountry where you’re more likely to meet a moose than another hiker. Torngat Mountains National Park is another world entirely. Hikes here are led by Inuit polar bear guards along routes that their ancestors first used many, many generations ago.

Small Game

Provincial & National Parks

Our National and Provincial Parks provide a number of excellent walking and hiking experiences. Try the aptly named Governor’s Staircase in Blow Me Down Provincial Park, the Lookout in Butter Pot Provincial Park, or the Green Garden Trail in Gros Morne National Park.

Hiking & Walking Locations

In the areas listed below, walkers and hikers will find collections of trails that offer a variety of experiences, distances, and degrees of difficulty.
