The final portion of the west coast is the southeastern side of the Great Northern Peninsula in White Bay. You can reach it from Route 1 via Route 420. One of the highlights is the Main River, a surging 57 kilometres that will test even the most experienced whitewater paddler. The Main River Waterway Provincial Park/Canadian Heritage River offers a full wilderness experience for capable outdoor enthusiasts, including paddling, rafting, angling, backcountry trekking, and snowmobiling.
Be sure to pay a visit to the Stanley Ford Property and Outbuildings in Jackson’s Arm. Tour this group of domestic fishery and farm buildings while learning about traditional arts and crafts – including quilting, knitting, and fabric dyeing – or take part in a culinary demonstration to enjoy some local dishes.
