Canada’s most easterly National Park and Newfoundland’s oldest, promises you nothing but adventure for the duration of your stay. Let your kayak take you to secluded boreal forests where you can enjoy hot chocolate as you watch beavers build a fortress. Or you could sit around a campfire and listen to entertaining stories and songs. Whatever you choose to do, be sure to visit some (if not all) of these areas:
1. Southwest Arm
From kayaking to camping and sightseeing, Southwest Arm has it all. Drive to the mouth of Southwest Arm Brook and pitch your tent on a primitive site. You can then sit back and enjoy the view of Malady Head. If you want more comfort, enjoy camping in oTENTiks.
2. Sandy Pond
The entire family can tag along for a day of swimming, picnicking and paddling at Sandy Pond. The trail that surrounds the pond is easy with boardwalks that take you across marshlands. You may also paddle across the pond that is only 2km wide.
Took a little trip to Sandy #Pond today, in Terra Nova National #Park, it was a beautiful day. The pond was packed with #tourists, sitting by the beach, while the kids swam in the pond. It was a georgeous day, with a little wind to keep the flies away. Almost a little too much wind to take out one of these paddle #boats. Which can be rented here. It's a beautiful spot, I recommend anyone staying in Terra Nova National Park to check out Sandy Pond. —————————- ➡️Follow us on Instagram @voyage_with_us for more . . . . . . . #OurHomeOurCanada @brickwarehouse
3. Dunphy’s Pond and Dunphy’s Island
If you are looking for a combination of backcountry camping and paddling then Dunphy’s Pond and Dunphy’s Island is the place to be. You can paddle from Sandy Pond to Dunphy’s Pond before spending the night next to the water or on Dunphy’s Island.
4. Malady Head Trail
This moderate to difficult trail will take you through mature black spruce forests and some swampy areas. Prepare to see some magnificent vistas of Alexander Bay, Eastport Causeway, Southwest Arm and Wings Pond.
5. Kayaking the Atlantic Ocean
Whether you trust your paddling skills in the open seas or you prefer to stay close to the shore, the Atlantic Ocean is calling out to you. Simply launch your kayak from Newman Sound and embark on an adventure of a lifetime.
6. The Visitor Centre
Are you bringing your kids with you to Terra Nova? If yes, then you should stop by the Visitor Center where they can stand in awe of a touch tank that has lots of amazing creatures.
7. Blue Hill Lookout
Every park has a special point where the view is sensational. For Terra Nova National Park, that spot is Blue Hill Lookout. See it for yourself and join an ever growing group of impressed visitors.
This is Blue Hill, Terra Nova National park. A great place to look-out over the land the unrolling of one of the most beautiful landscapes.
