Details

Explore the exceptional ecology and world-significant geology with a Parks Canada interpreter guiding you through a landscape described as a “geologist’s dream”! The Tablelands of Gros Morne is one of the few places where the Earth’s mantle is revealed. Pushed in place as continents collided almost half a billion years ago, its orange weathered rock is from the middle layer of the Earth. Shaped by glaciers less than 15,000 years ago, today few plants grow in the Tablelands’ toxic soils. This barren landscape is one of the best examples of the Earth’s mantle-exposed to you, the way few have seen it.
