The Tablelands dared you and you took the challenge. After all it’s not every day that you get a chance to walk upon the Earth’s mantle. Escape the trails and you can be one of the few who will have seen the view from the top. Pick up a map, plan your route and let your legs carry you to the top. Check out the experiences.

Bontours and Parks Canada will launch the new water experience at Western Brook Pond. Join us for the launch of the new catamaran touring vessel the Westbrook 1. This new vessel will provide passengers with greater viewing comfort. A charter service will also help to address specific needs of groups for example guided tours with a geologist, naturalist or folklorist, and even on-board weddings. There will also be an increase in dock-side programming including musical entertainment by local artists. For reservations contact Bontours or check out the many Western Brook Pond experiences.
