Travel time in Newfoundland

Jump to last reply

After having our whole 2 week trip planned to NL for last summer and having to cancel because of DH surgery, I'm starting again. This time, 6 adult friends are joining us because they heard how wonderful NL is.

We had originally planned to go across the province, but now I'm starting to rethink it.

Please tell me your thoughts.

St John's late night arrival 3 nights
260 miles to Twillingate 3 nights
250 miles to Rocky Harbour 4 nights
380 miles to Bonavista 3 nights
180 miles to Witless Bay 2 nights
20 miles to St John's 1 night

It seems like a lot of driving. We like to walk/hike and poke around areas (not shop!) Gros Mourne sounds so wonderful, but is it really pushing it?

Am I right in thinking driving on Rt 1 may average 50 MPH? Of course, we'd probably make stops along the way, but I'm figuring driving time. So thinking 5, 5 ,8,3 hours between towns.

I know folks may say we have to come back and hopefully we will....
