Back Country Hiking Adventure Tour

Travel off the beaten path

For the adventurous types or just larger groups that wish to experience the beauty of the area together, we have you covered.

For those who wish to truly experience Gros Morne National Park and, specifically, the area of Western Brook Pond, we are pleased to offer guided day hikes.

A zippy shuttle ride to the head of the pond, a guided hike/adventure to the top of the gorge, the chance to take the “iconic” photo of the fjord.

Both the novice adventurer and seasoned hiker will enjoy the opportunity to have more than just a quick trip through the freshwater fjord and the cliffs that tower around it.

Plan on a full 8 hr day. Meet your guide Clem at the dock at 9am, hop on the shuttle, enjoy your hike to the top of the gorge and back, hop back on the shuttle to return to the dock.

If you prefer to travel with like-minded individuals or you have a large group arranged for a Boat tour, BonTours can accommodate you. Whether you’re traveling with a group of friends, celebrating a reunion or planning a corporate team building exercise, booking a custom or group tour ensures that you have the best experience with us and you get exactly what you’re looking for.

The Boat tour itself will include a more specialized and in-depth commentary on the natural geology, not only of Western Brook Pond, but of other significant sites in the park such as the Tablelands, Green Gardens, and more. Longer and more concentrated stops will be taken at key geological formations such as the Diabase dykes, Blue Denim Fall, and the Hanging Valley. The tour will also discuss the formation of the island of Newfoundland itself.

The culture and history of the people of the island will also be detailed through a presentation by a local folklorist who knows the communities within the park. Local and traditional music will also play a key role on this boat tour.

As well, a more personal element of exploration will be encouraged through a thirty minutes stopover at the head of the pond, as well as more time for bird sightings and interesting flora and fauna throughout the tour.
