Whether it is business or pleasure that leads you to Newfoundland, you must have a plan because with the many local attractions Newfoundland offers, you will be spoilt for choice. The first thing you must do is strategically choose a motel or the kind of accommodation you prefer; then you can go ahead and put on your explorer’s hat. There are many sights to see in Newfoundland and here is a list of the top places you must not miss.
Gros Morne National Park
Gros Morne was officially made a national park in 2005. Since then, it has become the second-largest park in Atlantic Canada. The park is named after the 807m mountain that lies within the park. The scenery in the park is to die for and, even better, camping is allowed within the park. Campers are even allowed to bring along their generators to make their stay more worthwhile. The numerous hiking trails will also keep you guessing.
It is impossible to say you were on Newfoundland Island if you haven’t been to Signal hill yet. The 167m high ridge overlooks the Labrador Sea as well as the St. John’s city and has a university on its lower slopes. Adjacent to the mountain is a Geo centre and another national park. The view of the Battery town located at the slopes of the hill is also amazing. If you are a hiker who values beautiful scenery, you have to visit Signal Hill.
Western Brook Pond
Many people say that this place is magical. It might be true since the lake, which is surrounded by cliffs around 600m high, was once a part of the Labrador Sea. Even better, the water in the fjord is fresh, unlike the salty water found in Labrador. This said, the Western brook pond is a wonder that ought to be seen by everyone in Newfoundland.
