Itinerary suggestion around Gros Morne National Park

I plan to spend 5-6 days around Gros Morne Nat'l Park as part of 2 weeks vacation. And I would like to get some suggestion on detailed itinerary. Both my husband and I love hiking and definitely want to do as much as possible. Thanks.

Oh so much to do!!! The Gros Morne region is full of interesting hiking trails, from beginner to advanced. My favourites:

The Tablelands (looks like Arizona which is completely different from normal NL terrain)

Gros Morne mountain - only attempt if the weather forecast is good

Green Gardens - a field hike that takes you to the coast line and sea stacks formed by ancient volcanos

The interpretation centre in Gros Morne National Park is excellent -- I recommend speaking with the staff there about any hikes, and do try to attend at last one of their entertaining evening information sessions.

I also recommend doing the Western Brook Pond freshwater fjord boat tour. It's a 30-40 minute easy hike to the dock, buy tickets in Rocky Harbour.

Welcome to NL and enjoy!

You are going to have a great trip! I thought I would send along this website as it has lots of great information on all the hikes and trails in the west coast http://artandcarol.ca/artandcarol/index.htm. They are a couple that live in Western Newfoundland and they are very active and can offer you their personal experience on many trails. You will also see many beautiful pictures! I find their info very interesting - hopefully of use to you as well! Enjoy NL!!

We did a hike on the extreme southern edge of the park on the south side of the bay opposite Rocky Harbour. Have to drive all around the bay to get there, but the shoreline hike was fascinating. Could do the short or long hike. Deserted, dramatic and bonzai-like wind sculpted trees all the way down to the shore. After our hike we hit a small restaurant just outside the parks south entrance and dined on the catch or the day. Pure magic.
