GROS MORNE NATIONAL PARK
There is a reason why this UNESCOdesignated national park outside Corner Brook is one of Newfoundland & Labrador’s signature sites. The place rocks . . . literally. Brush up on its natural history at the Discovery
Centre in Woody Point; then explore the Tablelands—a massive flat-topped formation created when the North American and African continental plates collided—either independently or on a guided excursion. Cap your visit by hiking the handsome boardwalk to Western Brook Pond and boarding a tour boat for an up-close look at spectacular fjord-like scenery dating from the Pleistocene period. A range of engaging interpretive programs is also available (www. parkscanada.gc.ca/grosmorne).
