Culture and Interpretation
The rocks of Gros Morne National Park explain how continents got their shape, why continents collide and tear apart, only to collide again. Geology and natural history are not the only gems to be found in Gros Morne. Explore the rich culture of the people and the area’s Indigenous traditions.
Although interpretive programs are not being offered in 2021, take advantage of self-guided interpretive experiences throughout the park. Incredible geology paired with compelling human history make Gros Morne a place worth exploring.
Places to Discover and Ways to Explore
