“Beautiful Scenery”
Review of Western Brook Pond

I enjoyed the boat tour. Beautiful scenery everywhere. The walk in was long but pretty easy. Just make sure you give yourselve lots of time to make it to the boat so you don't have to rush. Bring water and take your time. There are a few nice information boards to read along the way. The boat tour was nice. Remember to bring a hat and sunscreen for sunny days. The only thing is I wish there was more information given. The guides did relate some details of the area and what we were seeing but I was just expecting more commentary. Overall a good experience.

My family enjoyed this trip very much. Just two quick comments. If you are booking ahead of time, which is recommended, ask which tour is using the larger boat. It has seating on top giving more people a 360 degree view. The only downside to this trip....Western brook pond is some of the cleanest water in the world but I worry not for long. The boat we were on was just a regular gas engine. I would have loved to have seen a cleaner running boat on the water.

The walk to the boat ride and the ride was fabulous. We met so many nice people and were in awe of the scenery.

If you want to see the reality of the secrets of Newfoundland, then you need to see Western Brook Pond. Newfoundland is a hidden gem of North America.

This place was spectacular... The walk was really nice with all kinds of different scenery - through forest, bogs, marsh... The best, of course, is the mountain at the end of it... We took the boat tour, which was pretty cool too... The guide was very entertaining and we just loved the Newfoundland music at the end - really added to the whole experience... Highly recommended!!
