Newfoundland: Driving between Clarenville and Norris Point

Jump to last reply

I'm making my first trip to Newfoundland later in July. For part of my trip, I'll be sleeping in Clarenville, before driving to Norris Point to begin a few days exploring Gros Morne National Park.

According to Google Maps, that drive takes about seven hours, not including stops. Is that true? Can I make that trip in one long day of driving, assuming that I start bright and early to make the best use of the 15+ hours of daylight? If so, is there any particular place where I should be sure to stop for lunch, or for a little sightseeing that's not too far out of the way? If not, where should I spend the night?

Thanks in advance!
