I've visited Gros Morne 7-8 times, in all different seasons. If you're driving across Newfoundland to or from the Port aux Basques ferry, do not pass by this UNESCO World Heritage Site. From scenic fishing villages with friendly locals to breath taking boat tours of the fjord at Western Brook Pond, this will be the experience you will rave about to your friends and family when you return from your visit to Newfoundland. Try a bonfire at Wild Cove, hike to the summit of Gros Morne Mountain, stroll through fields of sheep at Green Gardens, explore the sea stacks and coastline, and settle in at the local inn for traditional music -- calling Gros Morne the perfect location would be a gross understatement. I'm from Newfoundland and I can't get enough of it, so those from further afield will be just as enchanted.

This is a great park for hiking! The following hikes should not be missed at all: Mount Gros Morne, Green Gardens and Outlook.
The Shallow Bay campground is one of the most beautiful of the entire park. It is located directly on a amazing sandy beach with crystal clear water.
That's the place to see moose!

Go back every couple of years. Still lots to see. Love the Trout Pond Zodiac Boat Ride and Hike to the Overfalls. Love the geology history and the uniqueness of the Trout Pond Community. Ususally see a moose or two. Love the hikes and waterfalls.

I've driven across Canada (Victoria to Halifax) 4 times. I've lived in Toronto, Halifax, Boston, Quebec City, Victoria, Portland and Corner Brook. I enjoy this area more than anything East of Banff, Jasper and Waterton Parks in Alberta. If you love nature (biology-unique animals and fauna including insect eating plants/varied and unique geology), you will LOVE this park. 25 visits to the park, and I have seen at least 1 moose from my van window 14 times. I have seen the cariboo herd from the road several times. Countless trails from 15 minute walks up to several days of backpacking. Within the park, and especially driving north of the park, you will drive with the ocean on one side, and low mountains on the other (don't expect the rockies). Pick a beach. Any kind of beach (sand dunes, large rocks, rounded stones...) and you and your family can have the Beach to yourselves!!! along the north shore. (water will be cold like Nova Scotia, but the shallow waters of Cow Head Beach are enjoyable late July/August). If you like scenic drives, start at Gros Morne and just head towards St. Anthony. Want to see a fiord but can't afford Norway? No problem. Gros Morne offers a beautiful boat ride into the fiord. The park is easily accesible (like Banff) but without the crowds (note Deer Lake airport is 30 minutes from the Park entrance) New England has nothing on this place in the fall (changing leaves, warm days and cool nights) but most of the leaves can be gone as early as mid-October.

In 2008 I had the opportunity to visit Gros Morne & it was so beautiful! We started our hike in a rocky area that looked a lot like parts of Iceland, then descended into lush terrain that ended at grassy-topped cliffs overlooking the ocean! There was a lean-to & outhouse making this a great opportunity to backpack as well. There was a good network of trails here.
