The Best Hotels for Gros Morne National Park

Gros Morne National Park is an extraordinarily beautiful, Heritage Listed region of flat-topped mountains and spectacular tablelands, of fjord-esque waterways scattered with colourful Newfoundland fishing villages, and of incredible geological significance. There’s no better place to lose yourself in Newfoundland’s culture and natural beauty and our Guru’s recommendations for the best hotels for Gros Morne National Park make great bases for doing just that.

The best hotels for Gros Morne National Park are an understated collection with spectacular views and great food at the top of the list of priorities. Which is just want you’re going to want in amongst this incredible scenery - and with all the adventuring you’re probably going to be doing!

The peak which gives the park its name, Gros Morne, is the second highest in Newfoundland, and 806 metres from sea level in the Long Range of mountains, which are the cousins of the Appalachian chain. It’s a fairly challenging climb, but you’ll be rewarded with some truly incredible views. The eerily barren tablelands are also one of the magical sights of the park. Plus there are wonderfully windswept and interesting beaches, strange bogs, dense forests and sheer, rocky scree hillsides and cut-glass cliffs.

There are numerous walks and trails within the park, both marked and unmarked, from coastal ambles to several days climb/camp trips. But as well as seeing the landscape on foot, it’s also worth seeing it from the water. In winter you might also want to try a spot of Nordic skiing.

And if you’re lucky you’ll get to see some of the park's wildlife. Bears, caribou and moose are quite common in Gros Morne - especially if you’re driving around dusk, when you need to be vigilant about them - plus you’ll find Arctic hare and ptarmigan in the tundra-like highlands.
