If you would like to visit the moon, but can’t catch a quick flight there, try Gros Morne National Park in Newfoundland; the barren, rocky landscape has a lunar sensibility to it! Equally stunning and haunting in winter and summer, Gros Morne National Park is an ancient blend of fjords, glacier-fed lakes, and rugged beaches. The west coast of Newfoundland, looking over the North Atlantic Ocean, is a terrain like no other, a place where travel memories are formed.
In the winter, ski huts provide shelter for skiers and snow-shoers. Summer sees trekkers heading to Gros Morne Mountain summit on a 16km (10mi) loop trail to take in one of the most dramatic views on earth. Camping and picnicking occur all year at Gros Morne National Park.
While there, visit Lobster Cove Head lighthouse, Trout River Pond, and feel the Viking sense of history beneath your feet.
