The Western Region is a special place of natural beauty and natural history, and like all of Newfoundland and Labrador, the very best of the great outdoors. A land with thousands of miles of coastline, endless forests and ancient mountains. Western Newfoundland runs from Port aux Basques to the top of the Great Northern Peninsula.
Visit Gros Morne National Park in the northern part of this area, recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage site for its exceptional beauty and unique geological features. Take a stroll through a jumbled mass of rust-coloured rocks. Visit the Tablelands, a 600-metre high plateau that forms one of the world's best examples of exposed rock from the earth's interior. This is rock usually found only deep beneath the ocean floor. If so inclined, trek to the top of Gros Morne Mountain and reward yourself with an unforgettable view of Ten-Mile Pond and the Long Range Mountains.
Close by is L'Anse aux Meadows, where you'll come across the grassy field where the Norse first settled the New World. Rich with history, Parks Canada has reconstructed a Viking village resembling the one built there 1,000 years ago.
Set between the Mountains and the open sea is the town of Corner Brook. Corner Brook is as alive in winter as summer, with a carnival of snowy fun centred around Marble Mountain - the best skiing east of the Rockies. Located in a hilly lowland region surrounded by the Long Range Mountains of Western Newfoundland, a continuation of the Appalachian belt stretching up from the New England states, Corner Brook's landscape is quite spectacular. For a holiday filled with great theatre events - from Broadway hits to locally written plays - the Stephenville Festival is just the ticket. Corner Brook is an excellent base from which to explore this entire area. Many of the properties listed below are members of:
