A UNESCO World Heritage Site
An Experience Like No Other
Gros Morne National Park is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. At 1,805 km (697 sq mi), it is the second largest national park in Atlantic Canada. This experience is part of Destination Canada’s Canadian Signature Experiences collection, which shows the world the best that Canada has to offer.
Soaring fjords and moody mountains tower above a diverse panorama of beaches and bogs, forests and barren cliffs. Its ancient landscape was shaped by colliding continents and grinding glaciers. Wander coastal pathways and beach comb among sea stacks. Cruise the dramatic, sheer-walled gorge of Western Brook Pond. Spot moose and caribou. Hike to alpine highlands where Arctic hare and ptarmigan thrive on tundra, and explore the colorful culture of nearby seaside communities.
Gros Morne National Park is located on Newfoundland’s west coast, 45 minutes from Deer Lake airport and a four hour drive from the ferry at Port aux Basques. Explore the park on roads, walking and hiking trails, by guided boat tour or paddling a kayak. There is camping in the park, or stay in one of the adjoining seaside communities of Cow Head, Glenburnie, Norris Point, Rocky Harbour, Trout River or Woody Point.
In Gros Morne National Park, a freshwater boat tour explores the pristine waters, scenic waterfalls, lush wilderness, and majesty of the ancient fjords.
