Experience the Wildlife in Gros Morne National Park
Get away from hustle and bustle of the city and the congestion of highways, experience nature in Gros Morne National Park. Once you start your journey on Viking Trail (Route 430) in Deer Lake, we promise you will never see another traffic light, or have to deal with rush hour traffic. Here, moose and caribou set the pace of life and the natural beauty found in the back country showcases some of the most pristine landscape in the world.
Some examples of animals found in Gros Morne National Park include Moose, Woodland Caribou, Black Bears, Red Fox, Arctic Hare and numerous species of birds. Some of the best viewing spots are located on designated pull offs along the Viking Trail and remember you are not permitted to feed an animal in the National Park.
