Harbour Breton area - worth a visit?

Jump to last reply

My wife are planning a four week trip to Newfoundland next September. We're not into "attractions" or tourist traps but are interested in landscape, history, wildlife and just seeing what The Rock and life on it are like.

Initial plans are to fly into Deer Lake then, spending two/three nights at most stops, cover the west from Corner Brook to St Anthony (including a few days in Labrador), then Baie Vert Peninsula, Harbour Breton, New World Island, Terra Nova, Bonavista, Burrin Peninsula, Avalon before flying out from St John's.

We're finding it hard to get much information about the Harbour Breton area and what it's like but feel we would like to get down to that part of the island. Our outline schedule let's us do it without any problem but we wonder if our time might be better spent elsewhere.

So, comments would be appreciated on whether the drive along Highway 360 and what there is at its end are worthwhile and whether that part of Newfoundland is much different to what we might see elsewhere.

Thanks.

Michael
