Discovering Gros Morne National Park
Welcome to a landscape like no other!
With its towering cliffs, dramatic fjord valleys, glacial lakes, sandy
beaches, and highland plateaus, the landscape of Gros Morne National Park
ranks among some of the most spectacular and diverse in Canada. Gros Morne is
World Heritage Site! That’s because the park’s landscape has also
played a role in proving one of the most important scientific theories of our
day: plate tectonics. Rocks here explain how the continents got their shape,
how oceans open and close, why volcanoes erupt, and why earthquakes shake our
planet. Hiking trails, boat tours, and exciting park activities allow you to
experience Gros Morne’s special features. Lobster Cove Head Lighthouse,
the Broom Point Fishing Exhibit, and the Discovery Centre are great locations
to explore the best of our nature and our culture.
From late June to September, Park interpreters offer fun, informative
programs about the park’s wildlife, plants, geology, and history.
