To help find your way around around Gros Morne National Park, please view this map.

To give you some perspective of the size and shape of Gros Morne National Park, to drive from the south boundary to the north boundary would take you about 2 hours. Gros Morne National Park is divided into a north and south side by a 25 km long fjord called Bonne Bay. To drive around Bonne Bay from Rocky Harbour, located in the center of the park to Woody Point takes about 1 hour (80 km). It is a beautiful drive and should not be missed.  If your time is limited, a daily water taxi service for foot passengers and cyclists is available from late June to early September between the Norris Point Waterfront and the Woody Point Waterfront.

Rentals

It is  recommended to rent a car when visiting the park to ensure access to all the regions of the park. The nearest rental agencies are located at the Deer lake Airport. There are also airport shuttles available from the Deer Lake Airport to your lodging.

Biking

Cyclists can enjoy the coastal rides and bike friendly establishments in the area. The water taxi is a great way to travel from the south to the north of the park without having to peddle “the struggle”, Southeast Hills.
