Terra Nova National Park

Terra Nova National Park Review

Newfoundland's first national park, established in 1957, offers natural beauty, dramatic Bonavista Bay coastline, rugged woods, and many outdoor activities. Moose, black bear, and other wildlife roam freely in the forests and marshy bogs, pods of whales play in the waters within view, and many species of birds inhabit the cliffs and shores. Golfing, sea kayaking, fishing, and backcountry camping and canoeing are among the activities the 400-square-km (154-square-mile) park supports. You can arrange guided walks at the visitor center, which has exhibits, a small shop, and a decent snack bar/cafeteria. Coastal Connections (709/533–2196, www.coastalconnections.ca) conducts summer marine tours that leave from the visitor center.
