Atlantic Canada & Gros Morne NP – Itinerary

We long hesitated between flying directly to Newfoundland and starting the road trip earlier  from our home in Montreal (approximately 14 hrs by car plus an additional 7 hrs by ferry, then a final 3 hrs driving). In the end we decided to make our way up to Newfoundland by car as we viewed it as a unique opportunity to visit some of the more unique landscapes of our own country while we made our way northeast to Gros Morne National Park (NP) in Newfoundland.
