We have just returned from a 9 day trip in Newfoundland,Canada. Once we got through the fog in St.John's and the sun returned,it was a wonderful trip. Uncrowded roads,very friendly people ,so safe and relaxing. Loved the view from the cafe high above the city in The Rooms ( art gallery ,museum ) in St. John's, the gorgeous scenery in the towns of Brigus and Trinity Bay ,whales and puffins off the cliffs of Bonavista ,the huge sea cave at Dungeon Provincial Park and most of all the majestic scenery of Gros Morne National Park. Stayed in the village of Rocky Harbor at the Bayside Motel and Cabins which are clean,comfortable and an easy walk into the village where we had very good meals at both Fisherman's Landing and Ocean View Motel. The highlight was the walk into Western Brook Pond and the boat ride into the fiord there. Just spectacular ! You book ahead to be on the safe side ( 3 tours a day ) ,buy your tickets the morning of the tour at the Oceanside Motel,drive on your own 25 minutes to the parking lot take an easy ,walk 3km across a beautiful bog ( such a variety of plants ,ponds and even a moose ) to the Western Brook Pond and take the boat there for 2 1/2 hours of beautiful fiord scenery and waterfalls.. We have traveled many places and this ranks as one of the most scenic. We were fine with our accommodations but if we return we will try to get into the Gros Morne Cabins also in Rocky Harbor. We later kayaked on our own in beautiful Bonne Bay with easy access at the village of Norris Point ,8km from Rocky Harbor. We would also recommend kayaking at Pool's Island,a series of sheltered waterways on the northeastern coast of Newfoundland. The Salmonid Interpretation Centre at the powerful Grand Falls was also worth a stop.
