Itinery: Ottawa to Newfoundland

Jump to last reply

Hi to all the East Coast experts out there.

We are planning our first trip to Newfoundland from Ottawa and would like to drive because of camping gear (there are three of us, including an eight-year-old). Can you suggest a simple yet scenic route to get us there?

First thoughts: drive all night to Moncton to get that bit over with. Take it slower, maybe three days in and around Nova Scotia, including the Cabot Trail. Take the ferry from Sydney and make our way up to Gros Morne. Spend the next week there. Return.

We have a total of 14 days. We would consider an inn or two, in between campsites.

What do you think?? Thanks for any ideas or suggestions!
