The Hiking Experience of a Lifetime……The scenery is magnificent!
For the adventurous types who wish to experience a challenging route and enjoy the breath taking protected landscapes of the Gros Morne National Park, we offer a guided overnight hike.
Shaped by glaciers and continental collision, the scenery is as diverse as it comes, with towering fjords rising above sandy beaches and moose filled bogs giving way to thick boreal forest, sea stacks rising out of the ocean and highland alpine tundra atop the mountains. Gros Morne’s ancient landscape is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Our experienced guide will take you through a land as rugged as it is pristine. The route is similar to the day hike. We begin with a walk through a giant meadow and wild forest paths before emerging on a giant rock slide. We gain elevation with a more challenging route as we deal with awkward and difficult footing. We cross river beds which may or may not have running water. At times we may need to cross rivers with water as high as our knees. From here the terrain becomes more and more steep as we continue through the forest.
The climb gets steeper and tougher. Full use of hands, knees and feet are required while pushing and pulling upward. We are in the forest and it is difficult. Finally, we emerge on a rocky clearing and are rewarded with one of the most stunning views in North America. The valley of Western Brook Pond opens up below you. The winding fjord and its steep cliffs are magnificent. We settle in at our campsite enjoying our surroundings, evening meal and wait for the spectacular sunset.
After eating breakfast and viewing the sunrise we begin our descent. Our group returns to the parking lot. However, arrival time is dependent on the speed of the group and the weather conditions for the day.
