Over 200 km of rugged coastline and numerous rivers, lakes, and ponds beckon water enthusiasts to Terra Nova National Park.

Launch from Newman Sound on a self-guided or guided adventure. Travel far on multi-day trips, or stick closer to shore on shorter, calmer routes, paddling along sheltered coves and inlets. End your day by camping at one of our backcountry campsites, sleeping under the stars to the rhythm of the waves.
