Ideal 1 week itinerary for the Avalon Peninsula?

Jump to last reply

My sister and I are planning a spur of the moment trip to Newfoundland together and are just quickly getting airline tickets and picking locations. We have one week, flying in, very late, to St. John's on August 4th and departing very early on August 11th leaving 6 full days of sightseeing.

Our preliminary reading of suggestions led us to believe that we could only, reaonably do the Eastern part of Newfoundland Island so we are not even going to attempt to visit the Gros Morne area at all. We will have a rental car.
If we stay on the Avalon Peninsula how does the following itinerary sound?

Nights of Aug 4,5 and 6 in St. Johns and explore the city.
Nights of Aug 7 and 8 stay in the Trepassy area or Placentia and see Cape Race, Cape Freels and Cape Mary en route or during the day.
Aug 9 stay near Terra Nova and explore the Park.
Aug 10th drive back to St. Johns, arriving late in the day and stay at an airport hotel to catch an early flight out on Aug 11th.

Suggestions? We coulde, possibly add one more night if you think it makes a big difference.

Thank you in advance!

Maria
