This exceptional experience of Western Newfoundland features Gros Morne National Park’s natural wonders, a visit to the Norse Viking settlement at l’Anse aux Meadows and a stay at a historic lighthouse along the Iceberg Alley.

We’ve selected the top day hikes in Gros Morne National Park and combined them with delicious Newfoundland cuisine, comfortable lodging, and cultural experiences.
