Port au Port Peninsula - worth a visit?

Jump to last reply

As stated in another post my wife and I are planning a four week trip to Newfoundland from UK 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.

After arrival at Deer Lake we are thinking of spending the first eleven nights going north to St Anthony (via Labrador) then heading back to somewhere around Corner Brook for a couple of nights before heading east to eventually fly out of St John's.

One of the questions exercising our minds at present is whether or not we should get into the Port au Port Peninsula while in this part of NL (where we intend to explore down Highway 450). Is Port au Port Peninsula going to offer anything greatly different to what we will see elsewhere?

Thanks,

Michael
