Located in Newfoundland on the Gulf of St. Lawrence, Gros Morne National Park is a UNESCO-certified area that earned the distinction through the beauty of its natural scenery, as well being a prime example of landforms created by the shifting of continental plates. The park encompasses three areas that are essential for exploration: Gros Morne Mountain, Western Brook Pond, and the Tablelands.
Gros Morne, after which the park is named, is a challenging, day-long trek to the top of the mountain, which rises 806 meters (2,644 feet) above sea level. The hiking is rugged, but the views of Bonnie Bay from the top are spectacular.
Western Brook Pond is an incredible glacial fjord that provides a stunning mountainous backdrop. An hour's walk will get you here from the road and you can take a ride in one of the tour boats that circle the lake during the summer.
Finally, the tablelands spring up between Trout River and Woody Point, a barren, mountainous region where plate collisions have exposed the Earth's mantle, leaving it a visual spectacle unlike any other part of Newfoundland.
