Where to go in Newfoundland

Jump to last reply

Everyone has already been so helpful, and I have the "when" settled--17 days the end of July.

Now the "where."

I already posted a proposed schedule, but would appreciate any suggestions to narrow it down.

Arrive at St John's Airport 11 pm. Will taxi into city and pick up car following day to get unlimited mileage.

So, 3 nights, 2 full days in St John's. Thought of travelling north (Flat Rock area) one day and down towards Ferryland the second.Is the northern part scenic or walkable?

Next 3 nights in Twillingate area. Is Twillingate the "best" town to stay there? Thought of going to Fogo Island for a day. Is going just for a day worthwhile? Could we walk on ferry and wander around area that the ferry comes in or is a car necessary? Should we spend 4 nights in Twillingate?

Next 4 nights in Rocky Harbour.

Realize it's about 350 miles from Rocky Harbour to Bonavista Peninsula, but next 3 nights there.Very open to any suggestions for a town to stay there or even a preference as to which side of the peninsula. Is hiking at Terra Nova any more outstanding than areas of Bonavista?

Now we have 3 nights left....I'm thinking we may want to see more of Irish Loop area. Would you suggest that over the peninsula (don't see a name on it) between Trinity and Conception Bays?

Since we have to return the car in St John's at 10 am and our flight isn't until 6 pm, I think we may spend the last night in town so hopefully we may be able to leave our luggage at the hotel during the day as we explore on foot.

I realize I've asked a LOT of questions and everyone has their own opinions, but would love to hear any thoughts you may have.

We are hikers/walkers and on the days we're staying somewhere, we prefer to spend time doing that, especially along the shoreline, rather than driving to every tourist spot to "see everything." On our "lazy" days, sitting on a deck, sipping wine, with hopefully local cheese, and just soaking in the scenery is a mighty fine way to enjoy life!
