18 nights in Newfoundland

Jump to last reply

Oh, I am so excited! My husband and 19 year old son and I will be arriving in St. John's in late July. My husband will be flying out from Deer Lake mid-trip, and my son and I will be leaving from St. John's. This is what we're thinking about, and I'd love your comments:

Arrive in St. John's around 6 pm. One night there, and look around the next day.
Three nights at a great little cottage on the Irish Loop coastline.
Two nights in Trinity.
Two nights in Deer Lake (free hotel, points) to see Gros Mourne.
One night up near L'anse au Meadows
Ferry to Labrador, spend one night
Two nights (another day at Gros Mourne) in Deer Lake, hubby leaves
Two nights near Eastport, Sandy Cove?
Three nights on Conception Bay

What we love most is beautiful scenery. We'll be staying in cottages and efficiencies. My husband really wants to go to Labrador, too, thus the ferry, and one night there. I really considered doing Fogo Island, but that's just too much extra driving, and my husband would rather see L'anse au Meadows. Is that a mistake? We do best when we stay in a place for at least two nights at a time. We love to hike (really, walk!) and beachcomb. Please let me know what you think of this itinerary, and if you have ideas that I haven't considered. Thanks!
